geomview suggestion roseman at dimension4.math.uiowa.edu
Here is a suggestion for geomview--something that I'd like to have available--perhaps these would also be useful to others. A "log" feature. The idea is that one could create a file which would record a portion of a geomview session. This could then be played back. This form would be one that could be later edited by hand if desired. This would be very useful for making demos and videos as well as just plain remembering what one did. For example, one thing I had trouble with is the "fly" mode. I wanted to make a video of a certain "fly thru". It was a difficult manuever and when I went the "wrong way", I basically had to start all over again. If I had recorded this in a log which I could play back, then I could pick up from the "bad" place try and go the "right way". I could also fine tune some of the manipulations by editing this script. After several such tries if I came up with a successful flight, I could then make a video of this by just replaying the log and recording it on tape. I don't think it is necessary to be able to reproduce a session exactly--after all geomview sessions are interactive and the timings of things and even the exact choices of parameters usually only indicated roughly by the user in terms of mouse drags and clicks.
