Is an object in the user's field of view?

Hi all,

is there a simple method to figure out whether a certain 3dnode object is currently visible for the user or not? I don't want to know if the object is visible in general (thus not <node3d>.getVisible), but if it's currently within the users field of view.

Any ideas are appreciated!

You can use window.isCulled to check whether an object is in the view frustum. However, this will not tell you if the object is occluded.
