Re: [xml-dev] 2007 Predictions - losing the PC

> Long reply: Yes, and you can even make films with game engines.

Sure, machinima is cool and all but it still doesn't address the fact that
making something in 3D is *considerably* more difficult than most folks
imagine.  Thus making anything other than a shiny metal sphere on a
checkered background is going to be a feat few will ever master.

I don't know the best way to succinctly make the point.  There's something
about how people perceive 3D materials that makes it extremely difficult to
get them to accept, let alone use them.

It's not that the tools to create them don't exist, they do, it's the talent
that's lacking.  Story-telling is probably a key factor in that.  Taking
that a step further into useful user experiences is a nearly impossible

3D is just one of those things that seems like it oughta be just SO cool but
never really gets anywhere besides gaming and oddball avatar stuff.
