Subject Re: Pivot 3D powered by Java 3D
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2009 12:26:12 GMT
Pivot doesn't currently support embedding heavyweight components. It  
is theoretically possible, but difficult to achieve in a way that is  
generally useful.

Based on what I saw, the performance of the lightweight rendering  
example was good. My suggestion would be to start there - as Pivot  
continues to mature, other options for optimization may present
