Three-dimensional rendering technologies have long been utilized for explanatory purposes in scientific visualization and related areas. Their applications to wider fields, however, have often been limited. In this paper, we explore the use of 3D model and animation techniques, combined with narrative techniques, for recreating event-based information to aid understanding. An empirical experiment was conducted which examined the effectiveness of 3D model images and 3D animation videos compared to reading narratives in textual form. The results indicated that both forms of 3D graphical techniques positively supported users in terms of cognitive load, recall, and engagement over reading text. View Full-Text
