Introducing Proscene-3

A Feature-Rich Framework for Interactive Environments

Abstract

We introduce the design and implementation of Proscene-3, a highly customizable open source framework for interactive environments comprising three layers: a low-level component providing a set of virtual events which represent all sorts of input sources and the means to bind user-defined actions to them; a mid-level component, implementing a feature-rich set of widely-used motion actions allowing picking & manipulation of objects, including the scene viewpoint; and, a high-level library, exposing those features to the Processing language.
