    Flash (AS2) to Animate cc Discussion by Ludovic Mercier Feb 10, 2017 Products Animate CC 17 0

    ... Hello there !... I've been working with Flash (AS2) since 5 years and manage to create hundreds of nice animations, tests... But as you know, swf files will soon be unavailable on the net ?... So I started to convert them in thml5 canvas which for me appears to be a greater challenge than what I hoped... I'm just a teacher, not a programmer !!!... And javascript seems to be very hard as compared to actionscript... So I started with the one-week free animate cc... and manage to create nothing !!!... (I'm french !... and so it took me nearly 5 days just to understand that I had to use javascript, easelJS...) So I payed and took it for a month... And this time I manage to make a nice drag and drop exercise... And it works fine !!!... But there are still some functions I didn't manage to recreate : => fisrt, I want to limit the draggable area in a part of my stage (I looked at the constrain elements without any success so far...) => second, I want my draggables to go back to their initial positions if not in the drop target (to make a correct scoring function) => third, I want my draggables not being dragged anymore if they are in the correct dropzone Hope I will find help here !... Thanks in advance !... Ludo le Dirlo... ...

    InDesign Workshop: Great course but a few steps missing! Discussion by Jordan Trujillo Jan 31, 2017 Products InDesign 0 0

    This was a cool introduction to the main processes used in InDesign. I had a couple hick-ups with this workshop though. The course provides the materials for you, but if you are following along with the videos, it seems like there is a completely missed portion of the video of when you work on the front of the card. The video ends after having you resize the "Design talks" text box and the next video begins with colors, and text styles loaded into the creative cloud library, and other features on the front of the card that were not made in the walk through. Also when working on the back of the card, the commentator used a web only font? That may be to me not knowing the best way to get that font, but it was unavailable to me so the sizing of the letters and spaces were completely off. The course got the basics across, and these issues may seem small and insignificant, but when a course is designed around following someone step by step in a video, it can be frustrating for someone who has never used the program to not know where these key features to the backside of the postcard came from. Also the survey link for step 3 provides an error.

    Teaching Film & Video: In My Creative Classroom Interview with Ian Upton, AET, Artist and Film/Video Professor Discussion by Melissa Oldrin Jan 6, 2017 Products Adobe Premiere Pro Adobe Connect 0 0

    For some great insights and ideas on teaching film and video, please check out this interview recording with Ian Upton, Adobe Education Trainer, artist, technologist, educator, and lecturer. Ian Upton, AET, was interviewed for the Adobe Education Series, "In My Creative Classroom". Ian has many talents, especially for teaching film and for inspiring students to tap into their creativity. Within the live chat recording, you'll see examples of Ian's students' work, hear his best practices for empowering students to get really creative and how to assess creative assignments/work without crushing student confidence. Ian shares the challenges he issued to students during his course, and below is more more description of the assignments (provided by Ian): Challenge One : The 5x5Five, five-second clips, natural sound as recorded. Shot on mobile. Simply cut together. No transitions.- Gives everyone the chance to get to grips with the Premiere Pro Workflow. From importing, through editing and exporting to YouTube. I provide a worksheet that takes students step by step through the process. I also create a 5x5 in class.- A great confidence builder for novices. Easy to create. Always produces a narrative - even if random. Always produces something that can be peer discussed.- A real challenge for experts. Stripping away all the bells and whistles leaving just image and narrative to work with.- The 5x5 Challenge is uploaded to social media and watched and discussed as a group.- The group discussion is invaluable. Filmmakers can see the reaction to THEIR film and benchmark what they have done against others. Builds a real ‘peer-driven group.'- Here is an example by Dang Chan Nhan. 'Swivel' A simple idea. Well executed. And an excellent vehicle for discussion* Notice how he has used a variety of shots and introduced a narrative twist with the final clip.https://vimeo.com/59177273 (Dang went on to produce this beautiful short film 'Draw My Relationship' for his final project https://vimeo.com/64346008) Challenge Two: The One Word StoryIn this challenge, I ask the students to choose an emotive word and create a film that makes people feel that emotion. This challenge enables us to explore colour and sound as part of our narratives. I also introduce Creative Commons and Copyright (along with sites such as incompetech.com - a great soundtrack source).I love this challenge as it gets students thinking about their stories. It is at this point you see students thinking about what they want to use to achieve their narrative, and Premier becomes a tool rather than the reason for making films.- Allows student, supported by a battery of online resources, to explore their interests. Sound, colour, editing, whatever. They self-direct their learnings to create something that means something to them.- As a challenge is also a great leveller as a beautifully shot and produced film if bland (they often are bland!) will be outshone by a handheld mobile production that engages.- The One Word Story Challenge is uploaded to social media and watched and discussed as a group.- The group discussion is invaluable. Filmmakers see a range of techniques used to convey the emotional word. Students hear their work discussed critically. - Here is an example by Jiamin Li. I think it is a beautiful work but also a gift for discussion. Here I would ask:- Why text? Why not 'spoken word' or imaginary?- Tell us WHY you introduced the black transitions?- Why did you take more than 45 seconds? Could you edit down to meet the brief? This stuff keeps you on your toes as a facilitator, and it's great if you can get disagreement and discussion going following a film like this.https://vimeo.com/120366120Another issue, perhaps relevant to Coventry University where I work, is the global diversity of our students. We get to see very different global perspectives as students show their work. Challenge Three: The Final ChallengeThis is where I give students free reign! A sixty-second video (exactly sixty seconds) including titles, credit, a sequence of clips and sound. The video should include transitions and effects to reinforce the narrative.My main challenge though is to create something that 'has meaning' for to the student and to convey that in the film.Again supported by a battery of online resources, I encourage students to develop what THEY are interested. Again, editing, colour, sound, etcetera. Here is another film. This by Letongang. I suspect she has used a better camera than a mobile. I feel the film is poignant and gives real insight into studying away from home. The narrative is clear and reinforced beautifully by colour and sound. https://vimeo.com/89661339 Kang Letong-FINALvimeo.comThis is "Kang Letong-FINAL" by on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them. Here is another film by Daniel Alvarez. It's great fun. Has a wonderful narrative and uses sound, colour and editing (look out for the comb) to great effect. Daniel got together with other students in the group, and they helped each other out creating their projects. This doesn’t always happen but when it does creates wonderful results.https://vimeo.com/80232661 Gringo Knightsvimeo.comThe rise, fall, heartbreak, and rediscovery of an everyday Casanova and his sworn nemesis. In Spanish, Gringo is a white man of non-spanish speaking decent usually ... Digital StorytellingIn this final section, I am going to consider assessment. When I first picked up the course, students were expected to create a powerpoint and present their films. This was a nightmare requiring two sessions and 15 minutes a student. The film was often lost in a downpour of slides tilting real discussion.So I introduced a different approach. Rather than a PowerPoint, I asked students to create a short ‘directors commentary’ along with their film. This was to be mounted with the film and students were required to watch and comment online on at least three peer films and commentaries. When we came together, I would invite each student down the from to introduce and show their film. We would then launch straight into the discussion. No presentation.Here is a film and a commentary by Kevin Cai.https://vimeo.com/122739996 What makes you happy?vimeo.comThis is the film about a daily life of a girl is losing weight. The main idea of this film is telling the people that weight-loss is hard, but you gain what you want ... https://vimeo.com/122750603Director's Commentaryvimeo.comThis is the director's commentary of What make you happy .The approach has been very successful. The discussions relate directly to the film. We can rattle through everyone's work in a single session and the international, particularly, appreciate being able to craft a commentary rather than endure the terror of a stand-up PowerPoint.Getting the student to stand at the front and watch reaction is also a great confidence booster. They don’t need to watch their film. They know it backwards. But watching others reaction is a fantastic experience.

    Best application to Zoom in For Windows Discussion by Josue Menjivar Jan 4, 2017 31 3

    Hello instructors, I teach at Langara College in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. I teach Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. I usually teach on a Mac and I use the Accessibility feature for zooming in and out to show the tools and menus on a projector. I will begin teaching on a Windows machine and I am wondering if anyone knows of a third party software for doing this. I know Windows has a magnifying tool but it doesn't work like the Mac version. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Installing Photoshop CC across a school - Best Practice Discussion by Jarrod Carter Jan 3, 2017 Products Photoshop 0 0

    Hi, I am about to change schools and would appreciate advice on best practice to install Photoshop across a large student body. At my old school we had a Macbook program and were able to use a Casper Self Service app to help students download and install software licenced to the school. My new school is a Bring Your Own Device arrangement with students able to bring either a windows or mac, and no self-service app in use. Has anyone been in this situation and been able to provide a seamless procedure for students to install Photoshop CC? Or any school licenced software for that matter. Any help would be much appreciated. Regards, Jarrod
