|Summary||0012749: Paraview VRML reader should not attempt VRML 1.0 files|
|Description||The VRML loading code in paraview uses VTK's parser class (vtkVRMLImporter), which only handles VMRL 2.0. Paraview, however, will allow the user to open a VRML 1 file which, after parsing, produces a diagnostic message that does not point to the root cause (i.e. loading a VRML 1 file).|
Suggest that Paraview disallow loading VRML versions other than 2. See mailing-list discussion http://www.paraview.org/pipermail/paraview/2011-November/023393.html [^]
A comment in vtkVRMLSource::CanReadFile() says:
// Technically, the header should start with "#VRML V2.0 utf8", but who's
// to say that new versions will not be forward compatible. Let's not be
// perscriptive yet. If some future version of VRML is incompatible, we
// can make this test more strict.
int valid = (strncmp(header, "#VRML ", 6) == 0);
It's clear that this test should forbid VRML 1. I think it is also now clear that new versions are NOT forward compatible. VRML has been superceded by X3D (http://www.web3d.org/x3d/specifications/x3d/ [^]) which although it does have a VRML encoding (http://www.web3d.org/x3d/specifications/ISO-IEC-19776-X3DEncodings-All-Edition-1/ [^]) the header starts with "#X3D V3.0", not "VRML".
