To create these animations, Mr.Smithwick -- a engineering Ph.D.student at HITL --used Strata Studio Pro 2.1.1, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Premiere, and MetaCreations Detailer on a Macintosh 8600 PowerPC. Any questions regarding these animations can be emailed to smithwic@hitl.washington.edu
