    What kind of computer programming language is good for creating 3D images for your website?

  • #2
    If we want to display 3D graphics in real-time, for instance in a game or 3D simulation, then we need a language and environment that runs fast and we also need efficient 3D libraries.


    1.Use C++. There is quite a steep learning curve, because, not only do we have to learn C++ (the easy part!) we also have to understand the OpenGL library (GLUT) or Direct3d and any other libraries you may need.

    2.Use Java and Java3D - Much easier to learn, this is what I use, JBuilder6 is for Java, however the downside of this is that Java can run slower and it is more difficult to distribute Java applications to other people. There is a standard extension to Java which supports 3D display, this is Java3D.

    3..Net languages such as C# or Visual Basic.

    4.Write the program as a script to drive VRML or the 3D program that you are using.
