full-featured version of Virtual Vaudeville is a fully-immersive 3D environment
build using the Live Performance Simulation System.
That version, however, will only run on a fast Windows PC with a video
game optimized for gaming. To make the Virtual
Vaudeville animations as accessible to as many people as possible, we
have also created a Shockwave version that
consists of eight pre-rendered videos of the performance, taken from
eight vantage points in the theater. These videos are streamed at multiple
resolutions, so that users do not need to download any data to their
computers. This version of Virtual Vaudeville runs on any platform supported
by Shockwave, including both Windows and Macintosh. We are also providing
a Shockwave-based interactive fly-through of
the empty theater.
