My first Avalon application

And here’s the reason I wanted to have support for posting pictures on my blog… I wanted to brag about my first Avalon 3D application (completely written in XAML).

As I mentioned before, I want to move the 3D visualisation of the White Dwarfs application to Avalon. So, I wanted to find out about how objects are positioned in 3D, how the views work and how they can be animated, and how the lighting works.

The screenshot bellow is a snapshot of my test scene.

The camera actually rotates 360 degrees around the y axis. I did this using keyframes. In the 3D visualisation of the galaxy, I will need the keyframes when jumping to specific stars on request. I will do some more work on this and post all the XAML soon.
