Animation in Balder

Hi and thanks.

I saw the description on the main page that Balder is targeting Silverlight, Xna and OpenGL. Is there any methods to support film animation like this site? which is developed by Google O3D? This performance is cool and the mechanism will allow us to make more nice application. Thanks.

the goal for Balder is to support more than Silverlight like it is today, but we want to reach the beta stage for the project before supporting anything else. The way the abstraction is today, adding a platform is a relatively small job. 

As for animations. This is something we have on our dashboard to do. Today Balder does not have any animation stack itself, but you can animate anything with the Silverlight storyboards. When animation is added, the fileformats that Balder supports will also support loading animations if the format supports it. 
I can't say anything about when these features will be there, other than they are on the horizon.
