Figure 26.7 Dungeon Viewpoints And Fields Of View

Viewpoint nodes specify a desired location, an orientation, and a camera field-of-view lens angle. By default, the viewer enters a world at position (0, 0, 10) and is looking along the -Z axis towards the origin. You can provide your own preferred viewing locations and directions in Viewpoint nodes. The first Viewpoint in the scene is the initial entry Viewpoint.

These X3D scenes are adapted directly from the original VRML 2.0 Sourcebook chapter examples. Also available: Introduction to VRML97 SIGGRAPH98 course notes.

X3D Scenes Descriptions
Figure 26.5 Dungeon Viewpoint Two dungeon rooms controlled by LOD nodes, separated by a wall and a pair of sliding doors.
Figure 26.7 Dungeon Viewpoints And Fields Of View This Viewpoint series does not move the user but rather increases the field of view (FOV) very widely, producing an interesting effect. Numerous additional viewpoints follow.
