My answer then (and has been in the past) that I want people to think that if something calls itself interactive then they are expected to use their mouse (in this environment) to do something to the work. In my case with most of the movies mousing in to the work usually makes something happen. So my rationale is that just as we longer feel the need to say "click here" in web writing (well, we shouldn't feel the need), then why should we feel obligated to provide buttons or instructions with video? I know we should while people learn the ropes, but part of my stuff is to encourage people to play with the material because they ought to learn how to play :-) having said all that, they can be obtuse so i think I'll start adding very simple user instructions with them. not much use being doctrinaire if no one can listen. > >> This vog is simple in design and execution, didn't take very long to >> script (took me longer to get the iSight and QuickTime Broadcaster >> happy), > > How are you using QuickTime Broadcaster?

Turn on keeping a copy and off you go and you then can use it as a video camera. If you load the sdp file in QT watch out for the feedback. 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/
