MathLive adds to Mathematica the ability to create rendered three-dimensional graphics that can be manipulated in real time. This article shows how to use MathLive effectively with MathLink, how to manage surface colors and create texture maps, and how to produce some interesting special effects. Some features of MathLive Pro, in particular the Virtual Dynamics Laboratory, are also previewed.
