Digital Tutors - Introduction to Paragraph Styles and Character Styles in InDesign CS5-iNKiSO | 562 MB
Genre: eLearning

In this series of we'll focus on introducing you to both paragraph styles and character styles in Adobe InDesign. We'll begin by learning what a paragraph style is and why it's important that we integrate them into our workflows. Next, we'll learn paragraph style basics, including creating, applying, organizing, editing, redefining and deleting our styles. We'll also learn some of the more advanced usages of paragraph styles including applying sequential styles and creating parent child relationships between styles. After wrapping up with paragraph styles, we'll move on to character styles and learn how to use them. Once we understand the difference between the two types of styles, we'll learn how to harness the power of character styles by using them in tandem with our paragraph styles.

In this series of we'll focus on introducing you to object styles in Adobe InDesign. We'll begin this process by learning what an object style is then move on to some basic functionality including creating, applying, and editing our styles. Once we have a good understanding of object style basics, we'll focus on more advanced functionality such as integration of paragraph styles into object styles & creating parent child relationships between object styles. We'll wrap things up by learning how to apply effects to the different parts of an object using an object style. A word of caution though. It is highly recommended that you have a already completed our Introduction to Paragraph Styles and Character Styles course before working through this one. After completing these lessons, you'll have a good understanding of how to add object styles into your workflow to quickly and efficiently control the formatting of both text and graphic based objects.

Genre: eLearning

In this collection of lessons we will learn about a wide variety of animation techniques that are designed to improve your animation skill-set. In this course we will build an animation of a character climbing over a wall from scratch, using techniques that can be implemented in any animation. Step by step, we'll create this climb while covering various techniques like: how to block in your extremes so that finalizing the animation becomes a faster process, strengthening poses to get a more entertaining outcome, and we'll also learn how to work smarter by utilizing Animation Layers to tweak pre-existing animation non-destructively, so that by the end of this course, you'll have the knowledgebase you need to create animations quickly and proficiently.

Genre: eLearning

In this series of lessons we'll learn the basics of using RealFlow 5. Using RealFlow, we can create realistic fluid and physics simulations that we can then bring into another application to light and render. This series of lessons will introduce us to the powerful software of RealFlow so we can begin experimenting and using it for our own projects. By understanding now how emitters, daemons and objects interact, we can create and control complex simulations.

In this series of lessons we will learn how Maya and RealFlow can be used together for our projects. We will begin this course by learning how to import RealFlow meshes into Maya, and we will go step-by-step through the process of adding lights, materials and proper render settings to mimic appearance of realistic glass and liquid materials. From there, we will go deeper into the integration process, learning how to take geometry from Maya into RealFlow, using RealFlow's soft and rigid body dynamics to create moving objects, as well as understanding how scene scale plays a critical role in the behavior of our simulations. We will learn how to cache and re-use RealFlow simulation data and discuss many tips, tricks and techniques that you will be able to use in both the simulation and the rendering stages of your RealFlow projects.

We'll get started by learning about the different components of a gradient mesh and how they each play a part in helping to blend multiple gradients together. Next, we'll learn how to deform a basic symmetrically shaped mesh object into any desired shape. After we finish building our first mesh object, we'll learn how to apply and control several different gradients within the mesh. We'll continue building gradient meshes for our illustration until virtually every detail has been addressed. Along the way, we'll learn how to integrate opacity changes within a mesh object as well as how to create a radial mesh. We'll finish our illustration by learning how to map type to our illustrated object.
