title The Use of An Interactive Animation Viewer in Presenting Architectural Design
source Timmermans, Harry (Ed.), Third Design and Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning - Part one: Architecture Proceedings (Spa, Belgium), August 18-21, 1996
summary This paper analyzes the use of a 31) hypermedia system in architectural presentation. It first reviews the current process of using computer animation in architectural presentation and identifies problems in the current process. The research assumes that a new approach using the hyper-model environment and animation together would provide a better environment for presenting architectural animation. An interactive animation viewer is designed and developed using the new approach. A sample architectural animation is presented using a tape-recorded animation player, a normal animation player, the interactive animation viewer, and a real-time animation player. The analysis of the result is made by a comparison in terms of image quality, speed, user interactions, object hyperlinkage, scene complexity, and information transmission on using different systems in presenting the same material. A conclusion is drawn to show the advantages of using the new approach. Limitations on using the new approach are identified too.
