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. -- Igor C. Antonio Wolfram Research, Inc. http://www.wolfram.com To email me personally, remove the dash.
