Gnomon Dynamics Dvd - Feedback

Recommended Posts

I just got my copy on Monday and I like it alot :)

I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where we can provide feedback/thoughts/suggestions/problems etc

I'm only about half done watching it so I'll wait until I'm done before reviewing it...

how about you?

Hi arctor,

I watched the DVD. Craig is a really good teacher.

It would be good to have more DVDs like this :)

I just got mine and watched it. It is very orginized and well teached, but too basic. I spent about a week working with DOPs alone, and learned almost all of the DVD's material. So I really expected to learn more from it.

The case-studies are very good looking, but I think they are not described deeply enough, or are not complex enough. For example, I would really like to see how the house model was modelled as different pieces, because - As craig says - this is the most time consuming process.

I also think the bowling sequence is not good enough, compared to the others.

But thats not to say I havn't learn anything, of course. The DVD goes into detail about how to use keyframed animations with the simulation, expressions, exporting data and shows some nice tricks here and there. I liked it alot.

Hi just wondering if anybody's been able to watch the videos on a linux box?

Can't find any media files, or anything, perhaps they're hidden?

Thanks

IIRC they're in a folder called "bin" and yeah I think they're hidden...

I bought it a few weeks ago, brilliant... worth every cent.

He's a great teacher, I only wish there was more dvds like this.

Would love to see another with more advance examples.
