Maybe I should explain what I want.

Basically I want a single rectangular plane set at z=0. On this plane I want
an image displayed.

I would like this plane to be able to rotate.

If this is not doable, can you think of any alternatives that would give me
something similar?

Thanks for you help

Ryan

Ryan, I'm not sure what you mean by an "auto-scrolling" background  
image in 3D.  The 3D display doesn't have scroll bars.  It's not the  
same concept.

Java3D has two facilities for background images:
	- An image that you just plop in the background behind everything  
else (warning -- Java3D doesn't do this efficiently)
	- A spherical image that you use to tile the outer boundaries of the

universe around you -- think of it as the "sky" in the background.

	Mason can do both -- you just need to hook it in the right place in

Java3D.
