QTVR NodesQuickTime VR panoramas create the experience of standing in a space and looking in all directions--360 degrees side-to-side, even 120 degrees overhead and underfoot--with the view panning smoothly wherever you look. A QuickTime VR panorama is actually a carefully calibrated series of photographs or 3D graphics images, stitched and blended together with QuickTime VR authoring software and mapped onto the inside of a virtual cylinder. You see part of the projection through the QuickTime VR window; you scroll to see other parts using the mouse. The central observation point is called a node.
QTVR Multi NodesVirtual Gettysburg is comprised of multiple nodes; clicking on a hotspot will take the viewer to another node, or a monument view.
