X3D Reference

Titania as Terminal Command


titania [OPTIONS] [FILE]


Titania is a X3D/VRML editor and browser for the Linux operating system. The goal is a full standard compliant X3D browser for future releases of Ubuntu. For now, Titania fully supports the Moving Worlds specification for VRML 2.0 and already many parts of the X3D specification.

It can be used as a simple 3D viewer for .x3d files, as high quality 3D animation rendering engine, for advanced science simulations, live data visualization, or as easy to use gaming engine.

Furthermore Titania can be used as X3D converter and beautifier for various file formats from the command line. It can format or convert a file to standard output or to your hard disk.

Titania reads an X3D file and writes an indented, reformatted file. When no output file is specified the output is printed to stdout. Use the --style option to specify the desired output style.
