Chapter 21. X3D OVERVIEW > And the Winner Is.

And the Winner Is.

On September 27-29, 1999, there was a 3-day retreat for the X3D design team hosted by 3DLabs in San Jose, California, USA. At that retreat X3D designers reviewed all major proposals and contributions and arrived at a rough consensus as to what nodes would be in the X3D Core Profile and what nodes would be out (see Table 21.5). Before you look at the two lists, however, keep two things in mind:

  1. At the time of this writing, consensus is forming but hasn't quite formed yet on the fields of the nodes that are "in" and what the precise use and function of these nodes will be.

  2. While the lists contain node names, remember that X3D may not even have nodes in the way VRML does. We're talking about areas of functionality.
