Geometry Primitives Tutorials
The first tutorial for Shockwave 3D. It contains an interactive section for you to play with the settings. Try it out and please send me any bugs you find.
Welcome to the new section of Lighthouse 3D dedicated to Macromedia's Director 3D. This is an excellent approach to 3D on the Web that combines a well-structured 3D definition with a powerful programming language, Lingo. Due to the large Shockwave user base, this may push 3D on the Web to the mainstream again. The only disadvantage I can find is that it is not an open standard like VRML and OpenGL, but nobody's perfect. Note: I do not have any relation with Macromedia whatsoever (besides being a user of their products).
