a little scene in which nobots parade down York street outside the Leeds studio. click "begin" below to demo it in your browser, or watch the video for how it looks irl.
to get the project setup on the Leeds display, you first need to open two browser windows and fullscreen them in both triads of displays. this can be done easily by using:
- moves windows across desktops
- fullscreens windows in desktops
now, you have to set up the windows for rotated displays.
the controls for the tool are entirely keyboard-based, to allow for easier manipulation on the Leeds screens. they consist mostly of rotation and synchronization tools:
- display "first" three panes from right
- display "second" three panes from right
- rotate panes 90 degrees for Leeds displays
make sure that you've actually clicked in a window before using any controls so that they key events are sent to the browser. you'll need to press 1 in the rightmost browser window, and 2 in the leftmost. as well as R in both to rotate the displays. then you should be good!
