Hello! Got a couple of questions someone might be able to help me with.... I've decided I'd like to experiment with integration of my 3d engine with a browser. I'd assume to do this through the creation of an activex control of some kind... but it's been a looooong time since I've done any of this type of thing. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Has anyone played with connecting a 3d renderer to a browser? cheers.

Also i did find something a few weeks ago, it was a plug-in that allowed you to view 3D bojects via a internet browser. I can't remember the site's name, or how i got to.

You might be thinking about Cortona. As far as I know that's one of the more popular VRML browser plugins out there. (In fact, it's the only one I know of, though surely there must be some more around.)

Yes I admit in the past Flash wasn't totally ideal for 3D accelerated graphics. But there are some brilliant new projects which enable you to do full blown 3D graphics, it might not deal with full accelerated 3D shader technology, but the results are still impressive. There is Papervision3D, which more information is here in the blog. Papervision3D is a free library which you use writing with Actionscript 2/3. With Papervision3D, the 3D is as good, if not better than you will get with most web browsers at this moment in time. Papervision3D can be used with or without Adobe Flash IDE (Tad bit Expensive!), as you can also code Actionscript with the Free FlexSDK and FlashDevelop. These tools and other alternatives enable you to develop full blown cross browser and platform 3D web games with relative ease and in some cases for free.

Also with the possibilities of Future flash developed applications running C++ programs which includes
" target="_blank">Quake running
. It may not run the latest technology, but it runs decent 3D, at a fast reasonable level. It just shows how far flash is going and making sure that full running 3D interactive game running on your regular browser is more than a reality in the very near future.
