Stages of the Great Temple in Tenochtitlan
This short documentary from the Institituo Nacional de Anthropologia E Historia de Mexico (INAH) uses the same Architectural 3D CADD and PowerPoint Movie-maker programs that I am working with, to illustrate the growth of the major buildings in the heart of Tenochtitlan, Capital of the Aztec Empire. I will be creating similar Youtube programs to explain the development of major Southeastern indigenous towns such as Moundville, Ocmulgee and Etula (Etowah Mounds.) Now the Artlantis software (to be acquired) carries this concept a step further by converting the 3D architectural models into animated films with people walking, animals trotting, birds flying, smoke blowing, etc. The Architectural Preservation Division of the Museo National de Antropologia in Mexico City also has Artlantis, but I have only seen one complete Artlantis film, so far. It is of Palenque. They have produced short animated films on various sections of such famous cities as La Venta, Teotihuacan, Tzintzunzan, El Tajin, Chichen Itza and Uxmal, however.
The times are changing. One either has to learn and change, or else become obsolete.
