hi all. my rig (see sig) is to be delivered saturday. i have a general question about the nvidia demos (dawn/dusk/gas station, etc). are these similar to videos? or are you able to control movement throughout the scene? what are these demos like? do you just watch them or do you interact in some way with them?

They can either run like you see them in the videos - which is what happens if you just double click the demo icon and leave it - or you can interact with the demos... move the camera - in some of them you can even tell the characters what to do from a pull down menu at the top left of the screen.

I will post some screenies tomorrow/saturday if you wish.

for example, with the Dawn demo - you can greatly adjust her facial expresions. Also, for Dawn, there are two different actions you can select, she can either dance, where she is tip toeing around the branch or she can sun herself - where she sits on the branch and moves around a bit.

yes, you cannot only watch dusk but also play with her :)
