Two New VRML/X3D browsers

Octaga Player and Fraunhofer’s instantreality are two excellent VRML/X3D browsers for Mac OS X. Some very nice new features here from the latest X3D specs – shaders, rigid body physics, particles, high dynamic range imaging, multiple video formats and so on. Neither will work as a web browser plugin as far as I can see. For that, try FreeWRL and let me know if you can get it to work ^_^

    FreeWRL worked for me. It was not elaborate or polished but worked. Octaga worked better and was definitely more polished. Instantreality was a little harder to find and I haven’t tried it yet – there were several instant… products and so I got dazzled and confused. I used FreeWRL only as a standalone app. I didn’t use is as a browser plugin.

    I can’t find a working browser plugin. With FreeWRL the whole screen is black.
