With 'white_dune' you can create/change 3D objects and animate them (in a easy way if you choose the -4kids GUI). The result can be shown in any webgl enabled web browser or converted to the Renderman Image Bytestream format or povray format for movie creation.

'white_dune' is a graphical editor, a simple NURBS/Superformula/Subdivision 3D modeller, and a animation tool for the VRML97(Virtual Reality Modelling Language)/X3D, which is the ISO standard for displaying 3D data over the web via browser plugins (or webgl via X3DOM or X_ITE javascript) . It supports animation, realtime interaction and multimedia (image, movie, sound). Dune reads VRML97/X3D files, displays, and let the user change scenegraphs/fields. 'white_dune' can also translate a VRML97/X3D file to C or C++. The resulting file can be rendered with OpenGL. 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.
