Hi Jiri,

> I've played with 3D in JFX recently and I kind of struggled with it (not only because of the math ;) ), so I can testify what you wrote about the 2D/3D paths in JFX scenegraph. I think it'd be clearer to have Node3D/Shape3D than to switch the semantics based on "depthTest=true" or on using PerspectiveCamera (think about isometric engine - 2.5D, not necessarily  3D) in my code.

So the issues you had were just with depthTesting disabled by default and perspective camera not being used by default, vs. setting opacity, effects, etc?
