the evaluation for the tutoreal project

Time Table

With the utter failure of shotgun, Jared has turned round and announced that we can use other means to show a timetable and established a sort of time and project management.
I only have two weeks left of this project, hence the scope of the table. On the upside it gives me the opportunity to show each day in detail. On the downside I can't make an accurate graph to show any improvment.

I have already done most of the work for the tutorial and have split the remaining project into manageable parts for the coming week. I've taken note of what days I have meeting or I am too busy to spend at college.

I will update the post with a new timetable underneath at the end of the week if or when I make changes for comparison.

p.s. Why did I put 'dinner' in one of the slots? Do people really need to know that?
i have now made a pipeline showing what order of subject i spent my time working on. as each part of my work was done i added it strait into my blog

adding the animation back into premea pro

the animation we have made is going to be added back into

video has been removed for the time being

the video has been deleted i dident like how i ended it.

but all it was is how to add the footage back into premea pro with file/inport. the newist footage bring it back into the stage and then exsport/media. with sound as a youtube 1080p will do.

once that is done it'll open media encoder, chose were you want to send the file and then click start queue.

and we are done.

thanks for viewing and hope this had helped

Maya and Flash pt 2

Second post. We start work on the Flash side of this project.
I am using Flash CS4.

We'll start by using the footage we made with Maya. Open Flash and change the setting to 25 frames and the size of the canvass ____________. We need to do this first so the footage will run at the same time.

Then try to import the footage into Flash by going to file and import to libary. Try to bring the video straight in.

When we do this, we get a window giving us options of how we want to bring the footage in.

  • load external video with playback component
  • embed FLV in SWF and play in timeline (the one we want)
  • import as mobile device - video bundled in SWF
We click on the second option. It'll give us an error message because the file type isn't right. To correct this, click launch Adobe Media Encoder in the same window. It'll take a while to open but when it does you need to click on 'start queue' and save.

We now go back into Flash and go back into 'import to library' and this time chose the new file. Click 'ok continue' a few times and we have imported the video the way we need it for the tracing to work.
