Another 3DWW event
Another view of the dance floor
  • There are many different options. On your nav hud there are two camera buttons.
  • CAMS BUTTON:Toggle this button for several camera views attached to your avatar. When your avatar moves, so will this camera. Moving while using this camera setting will also stop your dance animation.
  • ORBIT BUTTON: The camera is disassociated from your avatar. Scroll wheel to zoom. Left mouse button to click and drag. Using this camera setting will not stop your avatar dance animation.

3DWW makes concerts easy

  • If you have the Internet, you can join us and attend the show. 
  • If you have questions, you can ask them in live chat.
  • If you have requests, you can ask for them in live chat.
  • Both the performer and the webmaster are usually reading live chat.

Any connection with education?

  • Many high-schools, colleges, and universities teach music as performance.
  • They need to produce performances for practice.
  • For a web performance they don't need an auditorium.
  • And they can have a world-wide audience.  
  • In a web-world, they can talk with people in the audience. 
  • Not just from the stage, but one-on-one.  
  • Some musical performance teachers may see that as a learning opportunity.
