    does Microsoft surface development API supports 3D model (.3DS, .OBJ) loading and rendering + particle effects.
    it would be great if you can answer my above query as our project is highly user interactive and of high quality 3D models and imagery.

    Thank,

    Appcelerator is planning RT support with their Titanium development platform sometime mid-2013.

    I'm sorry but I haven't explored that area yet and my readings may be incomplete. I have a gut feel there's a way, think OpenGL, DirectX, but I don't know the answer.

    Does OpenGL work with Windows 8? RT? I seem to remember reading it was going to be deprecated but, hope the story was wrong.

    Yes and No :D

    OpenGL still works with Windows 8, but not on RT. So, the best bet for cross-platform would be Direct3D 11.x

    While I prefer, emotionally, Maya over 3DS Max is another story :)
