[MD1] VR Worx

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - VR Toolbox, Inc.

VR TOOLBOX, INC. TO ANNOUNCES ITS NEWEST PRODUCT, "THE VR WORX", IS NOW
SHIPPING.

Pittsburgh, PA, October 25, 1999 -- VR Toolbox, Inc. today officially
announced the shipping of The VR Worx, as of this morning, Monday, October
25, 1999. The VR Worx is VR Toolbox's complete suite of authoring tools for
QuickTime VR, and is now available for both Macintosh and Windows
platforms. The engineers for VR Toolbox have taken VR ObjectWorx, VR
PanoWorx and VR SceneWorx and built these award-winning products into a
single integrated software tool suite. VR Toolbox, Inc. is promoting the
product as "The ultimate software solution for the user who needs all that
QuickTime VR has to offer."

The VR Worx is comprised of three QTVR Modules composed in a single
interface. The user is presented a selection panel for choosing to create
QTVR movies from the Panoramic Module, the Object Module or the Scene
Module. And, VR Toolbox has significantly upgraded their array of authoring
tools within the program; each module has considerably more features and
more matured functionality than its stand-alone counterpart. Here's just a
partial list of the new capabilities brought to the user. The Panoramic
module now provides faster and more intuitive stitching; and the Mac
version adds a Hot Spots Panel and resizable windows, previously only
available in the Windows version. The Object module in both versions, now
contains an independent Special Effects Panel, which includes new de-wobble
and cropping special effects. The Object module in the Windows version has
been ramped up to offer capabilities previously available only in the
Macintosh version, like more special effects and sound support for object
movies. The Scene module on both platforms now allows zooming while editing
in the Node Browser. It also allows QuickTime Video and Still Images to be
used as nodes, in addition to panoramic and object movies. The Scene Module
also has another, quite significant development for both platforms;
panoramic and object projects can now be composed within the Scene module,
whereas before, panoramic and object movies had to be fully composed and
then imported into the Scene environment. In addition to this extensive
collection of enhancements, VR Toolbox has included an in-depth 260 page
printed manual, which includes various tutorials. Built upon QuickTime 4,
The VR Worx will be the first QTVR authoring tool to reach the market that
gives the user more ability to take advantage of what QuickTime 4 brings to
VR. The VR Worx is the ideal tool suite for professional photographers, web
developers and multimedia producers, as well as for educators teaching in a
multimedia sequence.

The VR Worx is significant to the educational community, in that now
educators have an easy-to-use tool, with a short learning curve, that
provides more than any other QTVR authoring software ever has. And, most
importantly, The VR Worx is even accompanied by a QuickTime VR Curriculum,
with both teacher and student workbooks. Teachers of VR Technology will
appreciate the simplicity of the software's interface and the easy learning
curve. VR Toolbox has been attending educational conferences from coast to
coast, showing off this new product's pertinence to educational programs
and demonstrating VR Toolbox's commitment to education. The company will be
appearing at CUE, on October 28-30, and the NSBA Conference in Dallas,
November 10-14, as well as many regional shows for the remainder of the
year.

VR Toolbox, Inc. has also launched a new web site at
http://www.vrtoolbox.com, which contains free, full-featured Demos of The
VR Worx, downloadable for both Windows and Macintosh users. This new web
site promises to be a great repository of information for the user
concerning QuickTime VR in addition to the VR Toolbox line of products. The
company will post extensive tech support files and also host a new variety
of QTVR movies for their galleries. A student Gallery is planned for the
near future, where educators from everywhere can post their classroom
projects for other teachers to see. There is also slated to be a collection
of outstanding work by students at all levels.

QuickTime VR is fast becoming one of the most important assets the user can
have in their software arsenal, bringing an unparalleled level of
interactivity and motion to web design and multimedia productions. As in
all the VR Toolbox products, the user can create interactive QuickTime VR
movies quickly, simply and professionally, with any kind of camera...film,
digital and video. And two-platform companies can take real advantage of
The VR Worx being cross platform, since projects started on Windows can be
completed on the Mac OS and vice versa.

Walter Neals, Vice President for Marketing at VR Toolbox notes, "The VR
Worx gives you the ability to generate QTVR Panoramic movies, Object movies
and Multi-node scenes, involving advanced elements that push the QuickTime
VR envelope ...incorporating aspects of this exciting technology not seen
in any other QTVR product. You just haven't seen anything like this
before...and with the advent of Apple's QuickTime 4, QTVR is at its
greatest height, yet."

Walter Neals continues, "With The VR Worx, the user can truly explore the
potential of e-commerce, like showing panoramic movies of real estate or
visiting travel & leisure destinations. The user can incorporate object
movies for on-line product catalogs, training & instruction and more. With
The VR Worx's Scene module, users can create multi-node virtual
environments with panoramas, objects, still images and linear movies. So
many things, from products to parts, artifacts to works of art, show-rooms
to corporate facilities come to life when viewed from any vantage
point...the possibilities are endless."

The VR Worx is a hybrid CD-ROM, with both the Windows and Macintosh
versions in the same package. It includes a 260 page printed manual,
complete with various tutorials. Apple's QuickTime 4.0, and Adobe Acrobat
Reader 4.0 are included on the CD-ROM. The VR Worx has a manufacturer's
suggested list price of $299.99.
