Flash/QuickTime interaction with Revolution

Trevor, JB, Klaus:

Thanks for your input. In this same vein, as a complete newbie, would anyone
consider the following possible with Rev:

A 3D wireframe graphic of a machine. The user could zoom into different
parts of the machine. The user could rotate the machine 360 degrees. The
user could add and remove machine parts to the graphic by clicking a list of
parts. The user could click on parts of the machine and detailed information
would appear in a field.

>From the information you've given me so far, I don't think the zooming will
be possible because there is no vector graphic support.

Are there any examples of this type of interactivity?

P.S. (Bolton) is assigned by the company server, telling people which city
I'm in so that customers know where I am. Definitely not the singer.

Using the current EnhancedQT external that Klaus mentioned you can 
process the FSCommand message sent from Flash movies.  So any FSCommand 
ActionScript in your SWF will send a message to Rev.  In the upcoming 
1.0 version of the EnhancedQT external you can also set Flash 
variables, get Flash variables click on Flash buttons and go to frames 
in the Flash movie.  I hope to have a beta of this up sometime next 
week but we will see how things go.
