Hi everybody!
I've heard that the api Java3d is not goog at its performance, and may be it's not good enough for us to make a big project in 3d graphics.
And I've just known a wonderful API : AgentFX.
Have you ever used this library?
Can you show me some good links about tutorials and code sample for this one? please share your experiment in using AgentFX.
we may know something in this site:

I looked at the agency9 demos some time ago. Poor and slow .... that was
my impression.

AgentFX is more a game engine than a 3D API. E.g. they integrate physics
and hopefully have some editors or mature importers for common file
formats. Thats what I'd expect.

Have you tried jME or xith3d? I think they are also worth looking at,
esp. in a games context.

This is my opinion: (have not tested it)

It does have some facts against it:

- It is not open source.
- The company seems to be small. It will be a gamble to rely on it, for future development and bug fixing.
- It does not seem to have a big user community since apart from the webpage the Internet does not seem full of discussions about it.

But on the other side, it seems to have tons of features, Java3D does not have.

On their website they also claim:

"It is the first and the most advanced Javaâ„¢ based technology for real-time 3D graphics."

That however is false. It is not the first, by far.

Just my two cents.
