I have been wondering about the coordinate system used in xith and what the default setup is when you create a blank canvas. It
seems to me (from some small programs I have written) the default for the axis is objects appear on the x / z plane and the height
is the y axis. Is this the standard? From most of the things I have read about mathmatics it is general practise for objects to be on
the x / y plane and the height on the z axis. Is it just my examples or is this the default setup? if so why is it not implemented the
other way round?
I found this but the graphs are not quite right:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cartesian_coordinate_system#Orientation_and_.22handedness.22
By default, both Xith and COLLADA use a right-handed coordinate system with y up.
Perhaps this is graphed properly in the Java3D or Xith tutorial documentation?
