Authored By: Chris Converse

Released On: 7/19/2016

Optimize your web graphics workflow. Learn how to use Photoshop Smart Objects to efficiently manage your project's colors.

Released On: 7/15/2016

Virtually every construction project these days involves documentation. Collecting, routing, reviewing, approving, copying, and distributing paper documents the old-fashioned way is tedious, and it's easy to "drop the ball," especially with regulatory documentation such as Safety Data Sheets (SDSs). Using Bluebeam Revu, we can transform safety submittals into a simple paperless process.

The end result is an easily accessible electronic package, with a hyperlinked chemical list that acts as a clickable table of contents—all with considerably less effort. Jim Rogers shows how to set up a project, start a studio session for collaboration, invite collaborators to the review process, set up an approval workflow, and combine all the submitted sheets into a single PDF file that can be searched and shared. Plus, learn how to keep a session open for additional submittals or archive it when a project is over.

Blender: Model a Motorcycle

Lynda.com - Thu, 07/14/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: Darrin Lile

Released On: 7/15/2016

Learn production techniques for hard-surface modeling a realistic motorcycle in Blender. Author Darrin Lile guides you through the process of creating a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy with proper scale and proportions. These techniques can be used to replicate any other vehicle or man-made machined parts in Blender.

Darrin begins by creating the frame of the motorcycle using curves. He then builds up the motorcycle piece by piece, creating the exhaust pipes, fenders, handlebars, engine components, and brakes. These lessons capitalize on the Path tool and modifiers like Solidify and Booleans. Finally, Darrin uses Blender's Cycles render engine to create the materials and lighting for the scene, and UV maps the textures to key pieces of the bike. In the end, you will have a greater understanding of Blender's modeling tools and production processes so that you can create vehicles and other hard-surface projects of your own.

Building Custom HTML5 Video Playback with Angular 2

Lynda.com - Thu, 07/14/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: Joseph Labrecque

Released On: 7/15/2016

The HTML5 video element allows us to play back video files through native browser elements, but the default experience is lacking for most projects—and differs drastically in appearance across the various browsers. Using a combination of Bootstrap and Angular, we can develop a responsive app with our own set of customized playback controls that will perform well and appear the same across all platforms and devices. Join Joseph Labrecque as he sets up a custom video player with Angular 2, the next generation of this "superheroic" JavaScript framework, and Bootstrap 4.
