Sensei,

You may want to check out LiveGraphics3D, developed by Martin Kraus.

http://wwwvis.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de/~kraus/LiveGraphics3D/index.html

I'm sure if it supports what you want, but since none of the others you 
mentioned support everything you want, it's worth trying it.  The usual 
disclaimer: it's a third-party package, so it's not supported by Wolfram Research.

Answering a question posed in other emails, RealTime3D was deprecated in 
Mathematica 5.0.  It's still in the build for compatibility, but it will be 
removed in the future.
