Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
QuickTime VR (QTVR) software was originally developed by Apple on and for the Mac, but with the latest release the software operates cross-platform for either a Mac or Windows. Kitchens covers creating QTVR panoramas, preparing hot spots for mouse clicks, compression for playback, and delivery via the web or CD-ROM. This is a good book for designers new to QTVR but not for design novices.
Booknews
For people new to the software or who want to milk more out of it, explains how to conceptualize, create, and deliver movies on a computer. Considers the steps for taking photographic or three- dimensional input for panorama and object movies, working in digital form, delivering the movie to the Web and multimedia, and other operations. The CD-ROM includes demonstration movies, and can be run on a Power Macintosh or in Windows 95 or NT. A list of resources is included, but no bibliography.
