As reported in our previous post on Virtual Earth a number of new 3D cities have been included in the latest update. In this post we feature a movie of Denver – created as an illustration of our tutorial on creating engaging movies from Google and Virtual Earth:
Music by Denny Schneidemesser (well worth a click)
The model is as impressive as ever with the Virtual Earth system, if Virtual Earth was made a stand alone application for Mac and Pc then Google Earth would have a run for its money.
We are getting used to using the helicopter background sound effect and the soundtrack by Denny fits the flightpath to such an extent that it would be nice to have a plugin that automatically played music/helicopter sounds while navigating in Virtual or Google Earth.
The non YouTubed movie can be viewed from here (720×576, 34Mb, .wmv)
