I have been viewing CGI movies of historical sites and periods with an eye to patterns of urban growth. In particular, this one that takes detailed looks at Paris through various periods within 2000 years of development.
I’m not in a position to argue for or against the historical truth of any of the images imagined, but they sure make the study interesting. The highly mobile views create an exciting learning experience and just about enough time was spent on each chronological example to keep both the information and the visual activity flowing.
The wonders of super-fast processing would have little value without the content to make it worthwhile. And thanks to YouTube.
