The nature of this thesis is to explore the possibilities of interactive animation. An animated, interactive program which shows various activities and programs of the Rochester Institute of Technology, (R.I.T.), is the finished product. R.I.T's history, upstate New York location, and academic philosophies are incorporated. The interactive disk contains information about the various programs the college offers, as well as, many examples of actual student work. It also shows these students creating their projects. In their own words, they tell about their lives at R.I.T., both in and out of the classroom. Faculty and staff also offer their views, lending another perspective of R.I.T's philosophies and beliefs. Because R.I.T. offers a various array of programs, highlighted are only some of the programs available at R.I.T. The shown in detail are the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences. Cooperative experiences offered at R.I.T. , and the financial aid available to students are also described. The video images include interviews and discussions with many of the departmental leaders of the campus, as well as, interviews with students of different cultures, backgrounds, and programs. This interactive program was created by using numerous computer software packages which is the actual heart of the thesis. The program has been built around Macromind Director, VideoFusion, Specular Logo Motion and Morph and Adobe Premiere. Any retouching has been completed by using the Photoshop program. The combining of all these programs results in the end product : an interactive disk.
