    • Extending X3D for Distributed Multimedia Processing and Control 

      Repplinger, Michael; Löffler, Alexander; Schug, Benjamin; Slusallek, Philipp (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      Web-based applications of interactive 3D computer graphics are showing a tendency to get more interconnected and visually complex. Virtual communities like Second Life demand realism not only in terms of realistic rendering, ...
    • RTSG: Ray Tracing for X3D via a Flexible Rendering Framework 

      Rubinstein, Dmitri; Georgiev, Iliyan; Schug, Benjamin; Slusallek, Philipp (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      VRML and X3D are the most widely adopted standards for interactive 3D content interchange. However, they are both designed around the common restricted functionality available in hardware graphics processors. Thus, most ...
    • GPU-based Real-time On-surface Droplet Flow in X3D 

      Jung, Yvonne; Behr, Johannes (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      This paper presents a method for the GPU-based real-time simulation of droplet flows on 3D surfaces. It is also outlined, how this approach can be embedded into X3D. Therefore, a concept and its implementation is presented, ...
    • An Incremental SMLAOI Algorithm for Progressive Downloading Large Scale WebVR Scenes 

      Wang, Wei; Jia, Jinyuan (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      Interactive downloading huge virtual scenes on Internet is always a challenging task of large scale DVE(Distributed Virtual Environment) systems. Along classical progressive transmission mechanism based on AOI (Area of ...
    • Beyond Viewpoint: X3D Camera Nodes for Digital Cinematography 

      Weekley, Jeffrey D.; Brutzman, Don (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      This paper describes four candidate X3D extension nodes: Camera, Shot, Movement and OfflineRendering. An X3D lexicon for camera movements is defined so that individuals directing virtual cameras in X3D can directly apply ...
    • X3DOM - A DOM-based HTML5/ X3D Integration Model 

      Behr, Johannes; Eschler, Peter; Jung, Yvonne; Zöllner, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      We present a model that allows to directly integrate X3D nodes into HTML5 DOM content. This model tries to fulfill the promise of the HTML5 specification, which references X3D for declarative 3D scenes but does not define ...
    • 3D Modeling in a Web Browser to Formulate Content-Based 3D Queries 

      Berndt, René; Havemann, Sven; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      We present a framework for formulating domain-dependent 3D search queries suitable for content-based 3D search over the web. Users are typically not willing to spend much time to create a 3D query object. They expect to ...
    • Web Based Presentation of Semantically Tagged 3D Content for Public Sculptures and Monuments in the UK 

      Rodriguez-Echavarria, Karina; Morris, David; Arnold, David (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      The documentation and presentation of 3D digital content is a critical but non-trivial task for the Cultural Heritage sector. Curators are often faced with the task of cataloguing every piece of heritage and maintaining ...
    • 2LIP: Filling The Gap Between The Current And The Three-Dimensional Web 

      Jankowski, Jacek; Decker, Stefan (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      Paradigm (2LIP), for designing simple yet interactive 3D web applications, an attempt to marry advantages of 3D experience with the advantages of the narrative structure of hypertext. The hypertext information, together ...
    • Digital Oil and Gas Pipeline Visualization using X3D 

      Zhen-pei, Li; Ping, Li; Ming, Wu (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      With the development of oil and gas pipeline construction, management technology and information technology, it is highly desirable to create a visual oil and gas pipeline management system to improve pipeline management ...
    • ADML: A framework for representing inhabitants in 3D Virtual Worlds
