Package Vrml2Sourcebook.Chapter10Materials

package Vrml2Sourcebook.Chapter10Materials

Appearance and Material nodes control a shape's shading color (diffuseColor), glow color (emissiveColor), transparency, shininess, and ambient intensity.

Colors specify a mixture of red, green, and blue (RGB) light with component values between 0.0 (none) and 1.0 (lots). ColorInterpolator can animate color values, and ScalarInterpolator can animate transparency values.

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

This X3D VRML2 Sourcebook Chapter 10 Materials examples archive is online.

The X3D Java Scene Access Interface (x3djsail) package provides concrete classes for each X3D node and statement.
