The goal of the each X3D Plugfest is to foster interoperability between X3D players. Each Plugfest is a regular event that brings content authors, authoring tool vendors and browser implementers together to work on interoperability issues. Consistent quality for X3D content helps everyone.

Instructions to submitters

This is the navigation home page for the upcoming X3D Plugfests. Content will be linked from this page for everyone's review.

Please note: Submitted .x3d files must be zipped before being uploaded. Alternatively, links to online content can be provided.

Description fields: Include a description of your content, or else a description of the problem and any results from the browsers you've tested.

Content Release Option: Specify whether the content can be released publicly or just distributed to browser implementers for testing.

2010 Plugfest Content - 24-29 July 2010 - Web3D Symposium, SIGGRAPH

How about another Plugfest?

  • When/where? Web3D 2010 Symposium and/or SIGGRAPH 2010?
  • Getting organized around priority "Bugs of the month" that we document for all active browsers
  • Who is tracking each browser and reporting the bugs?
  • Demo how to use X3D-Edit to launch one or many browsers at a time on individual test scenes
  • How to best report and track status of successes and problems?

"simpleShader.zip" 26 May 2009 John Stewart, CRC Canada GLSL Shader test that uses a modified "toon" shader; light intensity on Spheres is shown where the color is dependent on intensity; the intensity bounding values are passed into the shader Should display on hardware supporting GLSL shaders; Spheres will be "ringed". On non-GLSL systems, Spheres will be a uniformly shaded light blue Public
Media:UrlInProtoTest.zip 12 June 2009 Patrick Dähne, Fraunhofer IGD The X3D spec does not specify how to resolve relative URLs in EXTERNPROTOs. Some X3D Browsers resolve them relative to the EXTERNPROTO declaration, some to the EXTERNPROTO instantiation. Open the file "UrlInProtoTest.wrl" in different browsers. Some will show yellow textured boxes, and some will show cyan textured boxes. Which behaviour is correct? Public
