Re: Cloud computing

Good analysis kurt. The real danger is not dependence, but in control. The dependence is the result of the use of what we have. But it's the control that decides what we can have. We should be able to decide what we can have. Exactly right, Marcel. And of course there's the problem of manipulative ...

Re: Cloud computing

How do you see the cloud computing in 10 years? I think that will be a way to control any more what we do. I have no confidence in Google. Civilization become too dependent on the Internet. I'm tired of the tribes of millions of people who do not even know their neighbors. The aliens watching us ar...

Re: Games, wasting of life?

I guess I am one of the old ones (69) who didn't play computer games when I grew up. (No computers.) I do play them now and think they can become addictive. They also can be used as a learning tool. My Son does the Play and Learn, and Jump Start series a lot. I use them to keep my mind sharp. I do ...

Re: Games, wasting of life?

I persnally find them both to be great stress relievers, but I also have a slightly different vantage point from most other folks. I do special effects makeup as a living and as such, I spend most of my waking hours (at work at least) creating the sort of gore and mayhem that others tend to have th...

Re: Which movie editor?

Sorry if I missed something I was just skimming this post for a while, then when looking for a tutorial on UV mapping the mozaic thing popped up, it was new to me, I was still doing frame by frame image editing.

Re: Which movie editor?

In Paint Shop Pro you don't really need to know anything about scripting since actions are recorded in script by the program you don't ever need to look at them. All you have to do is start the script recorder and then perform all the actions you want to do to an image. Stop the recording and save ...

Re: Which movie editor?

I do that with Paint Shop Pro. Any visual effect, color, resolution etc. you can do in Paint Shop Pro can be done to each frame of an animation by batch method. Basically all you have to do is record a sequence of actions to create a script then apply that script using batch method to the frames yo...

Re: Which movie editor?

Hi again Kurt - I was talking about Paint Shop Pro I think you mentioned Photo Paint - although they are both Corel software these days they are different programs. I have no idea how scripts are implemented in Photo Paint. No, my mistake, Burnart. I meant Paint Shop Pro. I have both programs and g...
