X3D HTML integration


X3D V4.0 Open discussion/workshop


June 8st 2016 at 1500-1700 UTC (0800-1000  PDT, 1500-1700 GMT, 1700-1900


A discussion/workshop on version 4.0 of X3D which aims to consider the
following questions, and suggest potential solutions.


.         What level of X3D integration into HTML5 do we want?

o   Do we want to be fully integrated like SVG?

.         Do we want/need a DOM spec? If so:

o   Which DOM version should it be based on?

o   Do we want to fully support all DOM/HTML features?

.         Do we want to maximize the backwards compatibility of V4.0 with
V3.3? Or break away completely?

o   Do we want to retain SAI?

.         What features do we want? For example,

o   How is animation to be handled? The X3D way of TimeSensor and ROUTEs, or
an HTML way, such as CSS3 animations, or else JavaScript?

o   How is user interaction to be handled? The X3D way of Sensors, or the
HTML way with event handlers?

o   Do we need any different nodes? One example might be a mesh node?

o   Do we want Scripts and Prototypes in HTML5?

o   How do we want to handle styling?

.         What profile(s) do we need for HTML?


The discussion/workshop will be held on the Web3D teleconference line. It is
open to anyone interested in X3D. Please e-mail roy.walmsley at ntlworld.com or
