Introduction Applications with 3D graphics are very popular today, one of the best examples being modern video games. We have already got used to games for personal computers (or modern game consoles) that amaze us by realistic 3D graphics and the beauty of visual effects while games for mobile phones are considerably behind in the visual plan.
