hi all the video is at: http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/ (mpeg 4 in QT) http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vog_archive/000401.html is the below: I've just quickly put together another vog, this one from footage I shot from my first floor street balcony in what I suppose was a suburb of Lugano. ElasticMovies Lugano Hotel View is the work. It has the same visual interaction as the previous elastic movie, mousing in causes the video to 'zoom' (on OS X it will zoom till you seem to get a 9 x 9 grid of pixels then it gives up and you just get white screen, of course I guess I might have just focussed on a white pixel). Mousing out causes the video to reset itself to its appropriate size. The footage is what I shot from the hotel. I've left the sync sound track on, which includes some very noisy street sound (cars going past). I've also recorded a voice over which is played as a <a href="http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/vlog_archive/ 000165.html">child movie</a>. This means the soundtrack is much longer than the video, and loads independently of the parent movie (the video) so you won't hear my commentary until this second track has downloaded. I could script when it ought to start playing but prefer to let network vagaries and stutters have their head in these matters. It needs QuickTime 6 since the video is MPEG4. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
