VRML Tutorials

VRML ( Virtual Reality Modeling Language, usually pronounced vermal, originally known as the Virtual Reality Markup Language ) is a standard file format for representing 3 - dimensional ( 3D ) interactive vector graphics, designed particularly with the World Wide Web in mind.

VRML is a text file format where, e. g., vertices and edges for a 3D polygon can be specified along with the surface color, image - mapped textures, shininess, transparency, and so on. URLs can be associated with graphical components so that a web browser might fetch a web - page or a new VRML file from the Internet when the user clicks on the specific graphical component. Animations, sounds, lighting, and other aspects of the virtual world can interact with the user or may be triggered by external events such as timers. A special Script Node allows the addition of program code to a VRML file.
