Description: CIUS conference audio (Part 11 of 16)

Outline of presentation:

Virtual Reality Movies used in Ukrainian ethnographic research, spatial stuff. Used a parabolic mirror attached to a digital camera. Computer software can generate that into a panorama, which can be made into a VR movie. You can have hot spots on the VR movie where you can click and get an enlargement.
He decided to find out how long it would take to do a VR of St. Anthony’s. It took six hours total, 90 minutes of filming, 4.5 hours at computer.
They have actual 3-minute interviews on line. Talking about people buried in the cemetery. Examples of VR movies. [Lots of oohs and ahs from the audience.] VR excellent for artifacts and vestments. You can rotate things. See the Kunda ceramics section of the website. It takes about 36 shots to do an object. The techniques are described on the website itself.
