I am directing a project to design and implement
the next-generation of web-based 3D for general use
[ see the xVRML Project site
for more details ]
our goals include directly supporting
Avatars and multi-user virtual spaces
my question for this LiveJournal community is
what sort of tool(s) would be the most valuable to people
to support individuals constructing their own spaces?
the obvious answer is "modeling apps"
but that is mostly the answer for
"professionals" or focused amateurs
but what about for the majority of folks
who will probably want to assemble sets and scenes
rather than build objects "from scratch"
what tool(s) do the members of this "group" think
would best serve the "newbie" or somewhat "casual" user/constructor
of 3D virtual environments??
