3D Features Planned for Version 8

I'm considering that by saying that ImageView is a Billboard node you're
saying that in 3D it is always oriented towards the camera? Shouldn't that
be a property of ImageView rather than a automatic behavior?

Yes I do think it is possible to do this by code but I think it would be a
rather nice addition, though I also think that as long as you can do it
yourself it is not a mandatory feature but rather a nice to have.

Thanks, best regards,

To be exact something like this
> |// Add camera to scene graph (so it can move)|
> |Group cameraGroup = ||new| |Group();|
> |cameraGroup.getChildren().add(camera);|
> |root.getChildren().add(cameraGroup);
> ImaveView imageView = new ImageView(...);
> cameraGroup.getChildren().add(||imageView||);
> //transform cameraGroup to transform camera and billboards.
