DITA 2.0 3D support

Post by scottbdr »

Hi, this is more a question about DITA rather than Oxygen per se. I understand DITA 2.0 will support multimedia including video and audio. Are you aware of any existing/planned support for 3D multimedia objects like U3D or PRC? I'm not sure the "video" element is appropriate for 3D multimedia, so what is the best practice for embedding these sorts of multimedia objects in DITA documents? I've not been able to find much on the web regarding this topic.

Thanks, Scott

Hi Scott,
Assuming the question is about the DITA to HTML output I think the first focus would be to determine how an HTML document which contains such 3D object references looks like. Once you determine that, even if the DITA XML vocabulary might not support directly a certain construct the DITA OT bundled with Oxygen has a feature to embed directly HTML content in a DITA topic:
