the classic Cosmo-player: originally developed by SGI (and available for IRIX and Mac). Cosmo Software was taken over by Computer Associates, who sold the sourcecode license to Nexternet in 2001. No development since years.

VRML Tools and Editors

WHITE_DUNE dune is a graphical VRML97 editor and animationtool in development. It can read VRML97 files, display and let the user change the scenegraph, fields and routes. This can be used to make simple VRML97 animations and interactions. Dune is normally not suited to work as VRML97 3D modelling tool. It makes sense, to use it together with a static 3D modelling tool with VRML97 export (like wings3d for example).

a lot of traffic; what can't be answered here, likely can't be solved anyway!
Don't worry, even newcomers are given a helping hand here!
