Three.js Alternatives and Similar Software

When you're making animated 3D graphics, going the "easy to learn, hard to master" route may be more desirable for you than something with confusing documentation and an esoteric pipeline and community surrounding it. Luckily, Three.js is definitely more in the former camp than the latter one.

Three.js offers a lightweight JavaScript 3D library with a comparatively low level of complexity. Free and open source, Three.js is an accessible 3D rendering tool with plenty of uses.

Alternatives to Three.js offer more specialized use cases such as support for wide varieties of animation and format compatibility to make cross-platform development easier.

As Three.js specializes in 3D graphics editing, you'll likely want to at least look at other options for Three.js alternatives with support for Scalable Vector Graphics files.
