Inventor Studio Made Simple has 3 hours of video based instruction that teaches the user how to create fully rendered still images and animations. David Melvin, PE, the author of the course, breaks the processes down into manageable and understandable steps.
The course covers lighting styles, cameras, surfaces and materials, video editing, production strategies and a multitude of animation processes.
"It does a great job of showing users how to produce beautifully rendered images and animations." said John Koop, software engineer for TEDCF Publishing. "They can then use those images and animations to really wow their customers."
The course is the sixth part in a seven part series of courses for Inventor 2014 that will be released this year. It is currently available on DVD, as a direct download and through the TEDCF Streaming Video Service.
The Lesson Player has several customizable features designed to meet user needs. Users can slow down or speed up the video playback rate, which allows the user to learn at their own pace. When the user closes the Lesson Player it will automatically open to the same place in the course, so bookmarking is automatic. Hotkeys are available to pause, play, review, and proceed to the next lesson, and it has a search engine that helps users quickly find lessons.
