    With the many changes this week I think it would be useful to have another tutorial on Nutcracker.


    It will be again on big blue button.
    http://abcholidays.serveblog.net/
    In "Join A Meeting" select the "cracker" channel. Bobby set this up so i can give nutcracker tutorials.
    Enter your name, no password needed.
    I will open the conference on Thrusday Aug 23rd, 6:45pm (MST, Denver, Mountain Time).
    Tutorial will start at 7pm MST.
    We will be recording this so it can be played back if you cant make it.




    Topics:
    Pictures. How to use them, what are good pictures and bad for effects
    Gifs: what sort of animated gifs work, where to find them, what about gif transparency
    Layers: how to select good pictures to layer on animations
    Bug fixes: I will go through the changes made to nutcracker this last week, all ten of them
    Projects: what is imminent (you may want to install nutcracker on your local drive)
    Lsp,lor,vixen specific changes coming
    Current list of open work.
    A) horizon target model
    B) single string effects for eaves, windows and arches
    C) next release of projects


    So 25.5 hours from now the conference will occur.


    Thanks

    Yes, gigogig has sent me the web link to always start these with recording. After recording he has to do some sort of processing before they are ready to view. something 1-2 days after it is recorded he posts them.


    again we owe such a big nod to gigogig setting up this technology stack for us.
