'white_dune' is a graphical editor, simple NURBS 3D modeller, and animation tool for the VRML97 (Virtual Reality Modelling Language), which is the standard for displaying 3D data over the web via browser plugins. It supports animation, realtime interaction and multimedia (image, movie, sound). Dune reads VRML 97 files, displays, and lets the user change scenegraphs/fields. It is not a 3D modeller, but has some support for the VRML 200x style NURBS Node (3D rendering of all VRML nodes is not yet complete). It can load and store x3d (next generation VRML xml format) files, if configured to work with the x3d translators. Under GNU/Linux white_dune is a immersive VRML editor. It has support for stereoscopic view via "quadbuffer" capable stereo visuals and support for various 3D input devices supported by the X11 XInput or Linux joystick interface.
