The goal of the X3D Plugfest is to foster interoperability between X3D players. This 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.
Basic browser support for X3D is tracked on the Player support for X3D components page.
The X3D Plugfest will be held at the Web3D Consortium Members Meeting, Wednesday, March 4th, 2009, at the NASA Ames research facility in Moffett Field, CA.
This page will be the navigation home page for the upcoming X3D Plugfest. 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.
