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 at 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 27 hours from now the conference will occur.

Thanks

the whole 2 1/2 hours was recorded. but gigogig (Bobby) has to process the raw data from the conference before it can be played back. Bobby usually take 2-3 days after the recording was made to make it available.

whne he gets it done, ill post the links in all 8 forums i post to
