I want to create a flyby type movie presentation based on the NASA program "World Wind". This program produces a 3D image of the Earths surface. The program is very much like Google Earth but produces a much better 3D image.
My computer cannot cope with the play back of the recorded movie which shows the terrain from a fly over or flyby perspective. The movie in fact grinds to a halt sometimes and is jerky for the rest of the movie. DirectX is being being used.
Please could anyone advise me on what model of computer would be best for dealing with this work?
The computer I have now is being replaced so I was looking to find out if there was an off the shelf model that would deal with high resolution satellite images and the 3D stuff. The height comes from a space shuttle mission and the image that rendered over the digital elevation model is a Landsat image. I guess this requires a high end gaming machine. Can you recommend such a machine? Thanks again for your help on this.
