Note: I'm having trouble opening the TAR files on the Sun site, so I can't check the details. My copy of WinZip won't open them. Could anyone convert to Zip files for me?
So this is my best understanding of the program features:
|features||mjbWorld||CyberToolBox||YouBuildItVR||Ray Trace||Particles||SPL Viz|
|Load from VRML97||yes||yes||no|
|Save to VRML97||yes||yes||no|
|Edit graphically in Java3D window (pick, drag, rotate, zoom)||yes||no|
|Edit in tree window||yes||yes|
|Scripting using Java||no|
|Scripting using CBT||no||yes|
Behaviors determined by physical properties
(mass, momentum, etc.)
|working on it|
|texture supported||not yet|
|mesh editor||not yet|
|inverse kinematics||not yet|
How could these programs be developed? see white paper.
