Project Description edit

In all of the changes that have gone into Tk8.6, the 3d canvas Canvas3d has stopped working on both the Windows and OSX platforms.

OSX needs a rewrite because it depends very heavily on carbonized Tk, and we've since cocoaized Tk.

Windows... the plugin for windows just crashes nowadays.

RZ According to Canvas3d it is no longer abandoned.

Wish list (see also A Comparison of Canvas3D and QAnim:

  • 3D Font handling
  • Synchronous animation

Requirements: edit

  • C programming
