More wired than a Roman Internet café

Machinime continues to be a popular form of multimedia used in classroom projects. From the creator of this video: "This is the story of Narcissus and Echo, a Greek myth that I had to present for an English class project. I chose to make it using the Sims 2, and it took quite a while, so I hope you all enjoy it. Thanks for watching."

There are a number of resources over at http://machinima.com/machinima101/ - y'know, even the process of _preparing_ for a machinima (nevermind actually making one) could be a useful assessment exercise. Consider this article: http://machinima.com/article/view&id=440 and imagine assigning, 'Story-board out a machinima about the evolution of a Roman town, using the tools of Caesar IV'...

Oh, by the way here's a list of 'engines' that can be used for making machinima:
http://machinima.com/article/browse&type=engine and

here is a tutorial for iclone : http://machinima.com/article/view&id=465

Iclone is available here (a free trial can be had): http://www.reallusion.com/iclone/

There are other pieces of software out there that you can use to make screen-grabs and stitch them together into animated clips or shockwave movies - I've used 'Wink' (http://www.debugmode.com/wink/) to make lectures for my online classes. Not as smooth as what's possible with some of the in-game engines, but handy nevertheless.

Ok, I'll stop now - here's a video for how to use 'The Sims' to make machinima:
