1) Note the  PRODUCT CODE  for the movie you want. You'll need to enter it on our order form.

2) You'll also need to tell us the fulldome projector system that will show the movie — Digitarium Epsilon, Digistar 4 SP2HD, MEDIAGLOBE-II, etc.

From those, we can usually deduce the next two data items, but it would be good for you to confirm them too (especially if you have a custom configuration):

3) The optimal resolution of the projector display (not the computer screen) — 1400x1050 pixels, 1920x1080, etc.

4) The movie format — MPG, MOV, WMV, etc. Check our Recommendations page to help determine which movie format is right for you.

We do not need to know your dome diameter, or number of seats. However, it is always useful to have that data for your theater's listing in the LNP FULLDOME THEATER COMPENDIUM.

Our fulldome shows are made in fisheye circle form, and ship as ready-to-play movies, with audio and video files encoded/sliced/prewarped in formats and resolutions compatible with today's projector systems. We do not ship dome masters. [Why?] We record the files onto data DVDs, USB Flash or external drives. We'll use FedEx to ship hard drives.

In addition to the featured show, we also provide:

  • The fulldome and flat-screen versions of the trailer posted here.
  • Still images that can be used for advertising and promotion (also found at the show's Promo downloads link).
  • A reference book in PDF form, with the show script, production notes, acknowledgements, resources and additional information.

Our shows include a performance license, which basically provides you the permission you need to present the show to the public. The license term for this show is 50 years. Take a look!

In order to receive authorization for public performance, the responsible party for the theater or institution needs to agree to the performance terms of the show's license by signing the License Agreement. When we ship the order, we include two copies of the License Agreement, signed by the producer. The responsible party then signs both copies, and returns one to the producer. When received by the producer, the License Agreement is in effect.

While it may be possible to play videos directly from our distribution media, we expect you'll copy our files onto your fulldome system for optimum performance. We provide pre-written play scripts for some systems; others will simply edit button scripts or enter the necessary system commands to load and play the movies.

Most single-projector fulldome shows are ready to deliver within 24-48 hours; multi-projector shows usually within 3-4 days. If custom slicing is involved, contact us for a delivery estimate.

After we process your order, we send an e-mail message with the delivery details (including FedEx tracking number if there is one). For prepaid orders, the message can also be printed as your receipt. We will not process credit card charges until your order is packaged and ready to deliver.

If we're shipping a package, we include inside an itemized packing list, and a cash or credit card receipt for prepaid orders.

Digital delivery - FREE

Dropbox iconFor most individual show orders in the SMALL size category, delivery by Dropbox can be a practical option. All the show folders and files are zipped into a downloadable package, usually less than 4GB in size. We send you a password-protected link to the Dropbox archive; you have 7 days to download it before the password expires.

For MEDIUM size shows, Dropbox delivery might also be an option, but please contact us first. Some shows in this size category can be 20GB in file size or more; it depends on the show and format. When zip files get much larger than 4GB, downloads via browser protocols get trickier, maintaining a steady link connection for long periods of time is more difficult, and Internet bandwidth becomes a real consideration — especially for us. Uploads require way more bandwidth and available connection time. You may have great Internet speeds at your location; we seldom do. Shipping a conventional package may be a more efficient delivery method.

Multiple Copies of Movies

Ordinarily, the shows we distribute are licensed for installation on a single playback system and/or site.

But maybe you need multiple copies of your movies because your institution operates two or more fulldome systems. Or let's say you already have large and sliced video movie files, and then get an additional portable fulldome system and need smaller movies to run on it.

For these situations, you'll need to contact us about extending the license from the first show to cover additional installations. Then, simply buy the appropriate number and size of Additional Movie Files you need, at the discounted prices we offer in the table below.

MOVIE SIZE For systems projecting circles: PRICE PRODUCT CODE
SMALL smaller than 1300 pixels $1000 VMA-S
MEDIUM 1300 to 2000 pixels
(or prewarped)
$1600 VMA-M
LARGE 2000 to 3000 pixels $2500 VMA-L
X-LARGE larger than 3000 pixels [?] $3000 VMA-X
SLICED sliced for multiple projectors [?] $3600 VMA-G

Projector/Movie Upgrades

Let's say you already have our fulldome movies at a small size, but then choose to upgrade to a higher resolution projector system and need to get new, larger movies. You retire your lower-resolution system and no longer run the movies installed on it.

For this situation, you'll need to contact us about transferring the license you received with your first show to cover your new installation. Then, simply buy the appropriate size video you need, at the discounted prices we offer in the Video Movie Upgrades table below.

MOVIE SIZE For systems projecting circles: PRICE PRODUCT CODE
SMALL smaller than 1300 pixels $500 VMU-S
MEDIUM 1300 to 2000 pixels
(or prewarped)

LARGE 2000 to 3000 pixels $1100 VMU-L

Shows created by Loch Ness Productions come with English language soundtracks standard. Translated soundtracks are provided as additional items, not substitutes for the English ones. If your show's movies contain multiplexed audio, you'll receive separate movie files for each language.
