Introduction to the Tutorial


Hi, thank you for visiting my VRML Interactive Tutorial.

Good news for IE users! You can now fully benefit from this tutorial. I've updated the Try It Yourself section so that you can play with the worlds and update the VRML.

This tutorial covers the basics of VRML97 providing limitless source code due to its interactivity. Look for the "TIY" (Try it yourself") button on the top of some of the pages. Pressing this button opens a new window where you can play with the parameters and view the results. Source code using your parameters is also provided.

The left frame provides an index to the tutorial. There are sections about specific nodes as well as concepts required to fully understand all the fields involved.

This tutorial is likely to have bugs, and concepts which are not clearly explained. Please e-mail me, press the BUGS button, with bugs and suggestions. These e-mails will be much appreciated and will help me to provide a good tutorial.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial,

Antonio Ramires Fernandes
