Delivery Options - Streaming vs Real-Time

Depending on the content, audience and other factors we deliver 3D animation in the following ways:

Web 3D: Now we can deliver high-quality objects and animation in relatively small files which are rendered on the audiences machine - quickly :) See 'Mouse Man' on the blackboard ...

Streaming Video: Animation sequences are pre-rendered to a video file then streamed or downloaded by the viewer.
Pros: For hi-bandwidth web & cd-rom viewers, this provides the best image quality & sound
Cons: Limited interaction capability; more server space required; lower-quality & lengthy download times for dial-up web viewers; streaming requires special server software

Flash: Great for 2D & interactivity, but 3D animation pretty much has to be pre-rendered.

Animated GIF: Gif files are fine for small, very limited animations less than 5 seconds and no audio.
