quicktime 3D

Hello Viktoras,

You could take a look at AXELedge, www.mindavenue.com (ahem, I just  
saw that AXELedge is no longer available..)
They have a QT plugin that allows QT player to play interactive 3D  
content. However, I don't know whether it's possible to create .axs  
files on the fly.

Another option is FBX for QuickTime (http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/ 
servlet/index?id=6837478&siteID=123112). I have never used that, but  
maybe someone else can tell you more about this.

If you want to create 3D surfaces out of a collection of data, maybe  
VRML / X3D is a better option (http://www.web3d.org/x3d/). X3D's file  
format is XML, so it would be easy to create these files on the fly.  
These files can be played in a web browser using plug ins (for  
example Cortona VRML client: http://www.parallelgraphics.com/products/ 
cortona/ - supports only VRML however, no X3D; but VRML is also a  
text based file format). So the best thing would probably be to use  
altBrowser to display web pages inside Revolution, and have your 3D  
files played in the web page.

Kind regards,
