I cannot believe I stayed up this late — excitement over a new tool and an old canyon, I guess. An eagerly-awaited 3D mouse from Connexion arrived tonight.
This new device cuts my project time in half when creating Google Earth flythrough videos. Scripting takes hours for each minute of video. I enjoy working manually with KML tours. There are great advantages, like cueing up waypoints and paths with subtle fades and reveals. Scripting (often thousands of lines at a time) was a great way to learn some of the inner workings of this technology, but this mouse is pretty freaking compelling right off the bat!
