The multimedia-software for 2D/3D, audio and video performs the visualization in your software- and/or hardware related concept or product, based on ISO-Standards VRML, X3D and MPEG-4. These ISO formats which are exported as data format from almost all tools for 3D content creation are suitable for the Internet and used worldwide..." BS Editor
X3D/VRML libraries - Web3D tools
"Xj3D is an open source (LGPL) project of the Web3D Consortium Source Working Group focused on creating a toolkit for VRML97 and X3D content written completely in Java. It serves a dual purpose of being an experimental codebase for trying out new areas of the X3D specification and as a library that we encourage application developers to use within their own application to support X3D technology. Xj3D is highly componetized so it is easy to use only the components you need for developing your own X3D-based project."

"MediaMachines - there are lots of ways to make 3D content. You can use programs like Autodesk 3ds, Maya or Google Sketchup with a free converter. Or, try Flux Studio, our application for creating, animating and scripting 3D things and worlds."
"Art of Illusion is a free, open source 3D modelling and rendering studio. It is written entirely in Java, and should be usable on any Java Virtual Machine which is compatible with J2SE 1.4 or later. The current version is 2.3.1, released June 24, 2006. This version is both stable and powerful enough to be used for serious, high end animation work. Many of its capabilities rival those found in commercial programs. Some of the highlights include subdivision surface based modelling tools, skeleton based animation, and a graphical language for designing procedural textures and materials."
