Abstract
3D applications, e.g. in the context of visualization or interactive design review, can require complex user interaction to manipulate certain elements, a typical task which requires standard user interface elements. However, there are still no generalized methods for selecting and manipulating objects in 3D scenes and 3D GUI elements often fail to gather support for reasons of simplicity, leaving developers encumbered to replicate interactive elements themselves. Therefore, we present a set of nodes that introduce different kinds of 2D user interfaces to X3D. We define a base type for these user interfaces called "InteractiveTexture", which is a 2D texture node implementing slots for input forwarding. From this node we derive several user interface representations to enable complex user interaction suitable for both, desktop and immersive interaction.
