Brian,

Could you, please, provide an example of an expression that behaves in 
the incriminated way? By default, graphics (2D or 3D) are drawn static. 
For example, evaluating

Graphics3D[{Blue, Cylinder[], Red, Sphere[{0, 0, 2}], Black, Thick,
   Dashed, Line[{{-2, 0, 2}, {2, 0, 2}, {0, 0, 4}, {-2, 0, 2}}],
   Yellow, Polygon[{{-3, -3, -2}, {-3, 3, -2}, {3,
      3, -2}, {3, -3, -2}}], Green, Opacity[.3],
   Cuboid[{-2, -2, -2}, {2, 2, -1}]}]

draws several 3D objects without any animation.

Or are you talking about the new real-time feature that allows the user 
to rotate or expand or shrink 3D graphics with the mouse?

Regards,
Jean-Marc
