 VRML and RayDream

Hi! I am using RayDream for an "The Arts" project I am doing at my college.
I am trying to take a gif image and turn it into a vrml world.  I am fairly
new at vrml but have been wanting to make one for a while.  If anybody has
any suggestions on how to go about this or what other program I should be
using it would be greatly appreciated!!

 VRML and RayDream
   I'm using Ray Dream Studio and Cosmo Worlds to
create a VRML world. I create models in RDS
and then export them to VRML piece by piece. I use
Cosmo Worlds to assemble the pieces and add
animation and sound.
   In Ray Dream Studio, I've just learned the
techniques I need to create the particular models
for my world. There's a lot of neat stuff in RDS, but
I doubt that it would be possible to export
a lot of it, like deformers & animation to VRML.
   One problem I encountered in exporting to VRML is
that occasionally there would be missing
brackets or braces in the resulting file. It's not
rocket science, but it's a pain to have to go
thru and count them all up to find the missing one.
   Cosmo Worlds is a really good VRML authoring
program. It doesn't have complex modelers like
Ray Dream Studio, but it supports nearly all the
features of VRML2. For instance, if you place a
sound in a scene, it will show you the sound envelope.
You can create keyframe animations and, if
your scene requires complex behaviors, Cosmo Worlds
will create a script node and a skeletal Java
or JavaScript program for you to fill out. I think
Cosmo Worlds would be pretty expensive to buy
for just one project, but if you can get ahold of it,
I would definitely recommend it.
