    I started using a new tool to help me conceptualize scripture, and to visualize some of the concepts in prophecy. I don't know if this is something others could watch or not, or find it difficult too, but please let me know if you would like me to record some of my conceptual studies as I go along, and share them with you... Thanks...

    Joshua, these are very interesting! I'm curious about VR and would really enjoy playing with some of this.

    I'll try to watch more today as I've saved them offline and have a bunch of hours ahead in airports and in planes, but my first reaction to this is that it is difficult to watch due to the motion involved. As you look around the virtual space, it is hard to follow and almost makes me feel a little dizzy because I'm seeing the boards as you do (rather than a static view) and trying to read the info as you're looking around. The bouncing as you move your arm to write, the panning and bouncing as you move your head... I assume this is because the recording is also following what you see in the VR apparatus.

    Is there a way to anchor the view point that is recorded so that the camera/viewer isn't following your line of sight and can focus more easily? I understand you may need to move from time to time, but if anchoring is an option could there be a way to quickly toggle the movement and anchoring on and off?

    All good points, and that was my main concern about others having difficulty watching. I'm use to it now given I've been using this technology now for a year, so I have a bit more sea legs now.

    The second video is a little more stable, as I focused on trying to keep my movements to a minimum, but I'm not sure about being able to separate the camera view from my view, with this program unfortunately.

    Let me know if the second video makes it possible to watch, thanks... Thanks for the input...

    I sure will let you know about the second one, as my flight has now been delayed for mechanical issues. Joy!! :)

    A nice young student I'm talking to did say that many VR programs have an anchor option where you can move one hand/control to a "camera angle" setting and then set it there, and the recording wI'll be done from that perspective until you switch back. Not sure which platform you're on.

    Thanks for this, I just sent an email to the software developers to see if this is a capability. Good idea...

    I did watch the second video and it was much smoother and easier to watch! I would LOVE if you'd expand on each time period in this manner.

    One suggestion, I do think it would be nice to have maybe two white boards. One for the side-type notes where you explain other concepts and one for the actual timeline, because it's helpful to visualize that line and where things fall but I'd like to see all the notes you erase over the course of the lesson so I can keep them in my mind.

    Whatever program this is, it's very cool... And I'm a visual artist and learn visually so this is so interesting to me! Thank you so much, brother, for the time you put into these things. I want to keep up on them and learn more.
