Re: A basic tutorial...

As a teacher I know that making an instructional video about things is a long, drawn out thing just because of what will turn out to be too slow or too fast in the finished film.

Re: Acid-Free Paper

Re: Acid-Free Paper

I wonder if one can export either a film or an image series from Unity?

Let's not worry about either Aristotle or the galloping horse of the modernization apocalypse and concentrate for the moment on a few real-life situations: https://www.theguardian.com/theguardian/2000/mar/31/guardianletters3 "Later in the year people in the north-east will also be able to see the Li...

Re: Acid-Free Paper

Err . . . Thanks (I think) for the sententious lecture.

Not all of us are 100% convinced of the need to drop metaphors
