More Details on Session Five

People wanted to know more about Session Five, so here are some more details and concepts of it:
  • Session Five is a new kind of presentation tool. It runs as a rich-client application on top of Windows-32, Windows-64 and Mac OSX and can be used to show presentations that are different from those that are created with traditional presentation tools.
  • Session Five is not based on the concept of slides. You need to forget about structuring your presentation as a set of slides. Instead you start to think about the plot you would like to tell and the elements you would like to visualize.
  • Session Five gives you three basic concepts to create your presentation: Shapes, Animations and Layers.
  • Shapes are the visual elements of your presentation (the elements). There are various kinds of shapes. They can be arranged in a 2D world.
  • Animations can be defined between arbitrary shapes (the plot). There are various kinds of animations. They live in a 3D space.
  • Layers: In addition to shapes and animations Layers can be used to define animation-independent elements (your logo, the date of your presentation, etc.).
Using these concepts Session Five gives you more of a video game feeling than watching boring slides... :-)
