Director Javascript to FastScript3D to Java3d - Macromedia Director 3D

Would something like this even work in Director? Is there enough core Javascript in DMX 2004 to make a call to FastScript3D ( [url]http://fastscript3d.jpl.nasa.gov/[/url] ) and have DMX 2004 talk through that to Java3d? If so, could the Java3D be embedded into Director itself or would it be in a pop-up window? I know there has been a lot of talk about Director's 3D future and I'm wondering out loud if anyone has looked at this. I'm not enough of a pure programmer to even know if this idea would fly. Any thoughts/ideas/flames on the subject? Thanks, Lorax...

    Default Director Javascript to FastScript3D to Java3d

    Would something like this even work in Director? Is there enough core
    Javascript in DMX 2004 to make a call to FastScript3D (
    [url]http://fastscript3d.jpl.nasa.gov/[/url] ) and have DMX 2004 talk through that to
    Java3d? If so, could the Java3D be embedded into Director itself or would it be
    in a pop-up window?

    I know there has been a lot of talk about Director's 3D future and I'm
    wondering out loud if anyone has looked at this.

    I'm not enough of a pure programmer to even know if this idea would fly. Any
    thoughts/ideas/flames on the subject?

    Thanks,

    JavaScript and Java (3D) are two VERY different things.

    I realize the two are different, but it seems that the FastScript3D is
    currently being used as the intermediary between the two. I pasted some
    FastScript3d info from Nasa's website below.

    Coupled that with the Java3D engine being "available through a public source
    license in the very near
    future."(before JavaOne in July)and I thought maybe either individuals, or
    Macromedia, may have a starting point for something new on the 3D front.

    Macromedia's current stance is that any revision/redo of the 3D Xtra/engine is
    too costly, so I was looking for any alternative that might work.

    As I said earlier, I'm no hard core programmer, so this idea may be totally
    impossible.

    Thanks

    A JavaScript Companion to Java3D

    FastScript3D lets you quickly harness the power of 3D web graphics by
    providing an extensible scripting interface to Java3D. With FastScript3D you
    can use JavaScript or VBScript to quickly customize your web pages with
    interactive Java3D applets. This site has examples and provides free download
    of the FastScript3D source code and executables.

    and

    Sun is in the process of making the source code for Java 3D
    available through a public source license in the very near
    future.
