I want to know if there is a high level API to create a 3D UI or something similar.
I've been working with Cascades and I don´t see anything that allows me to do 3D transformations or mixing of 2D and 3D UI objects. Cascades simply provides support for OpenGL.
I know that what I want to do can be done in low-level OpenGL programming and the ForeignWindow, but I would like to know if there are any high-level framework for developers to do that.

I think when TAT did fancy 3D stuff in Cascades they were using OpenGL. I don't particularly know OpenGL but from what I understand that is the industry standard for doing that kind of stuff. Also realize that Cascades is in Beta 2 of 4 where it looks like Beta 3 (based off the released roadmap) has a lot of new features.
And on a personal note of how I view "what Cascades is..." it is an environment that lets you easily implement a variety of code languages intermixed with RIM developer APIs to make certain things easier. So I think of it as if I want to do "A" in C++, then "B" in HTML (using JSON, JS, CSS inside of the html too), and "C" in JS, and "D" in XML, and "E" in QML, and "F" in OpenGL, and... you get the point... I can easily do ALL of that in Cascades using QML objects of ListView, WebView, Foriegn Window, etc.
