Kineme3D uses standard OpenGL VBO-assisted rendering. Inside QC, Kineme3D objects will obey Fog, Lighting, 3D Transformations, Trackballs, and even GLSL shaders.
See the Vimeo Kineme3D Collection for some examples.
For $49 (less than the price of Kineme3D), you could buy Vuo. Vuo is a complete visual programming environment for Mac, similar to Quartz Composer. With Vuo you can load and manipulate 3D meshes, just like Kineme3D enables you to do with Quartz Composer. And, unlike Quartz Composer, Vuo is actively developed.
Unsupported on OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) and above
Please download the trial and make sure it meets your needs before purchasing. Due to bugs in Apple's Quartz Composer framework, we cannot guarantee that Kineme plugins will work properly on Mac OS 10.8 and above.
