I have just noticed that the search engines are directing queries
about advice on the above question to this archive page. This page
only refers to and old news page that was letting my students know
that a local store had a special price. Not much use to you now.
Students may now enrol in the Animation and 3D Modelling courses.
The days and times are shown below.
These are both complex subjects so you will need to attend both
sessions each week.
Wednesday night 6.00 - 9.-00
Saturday morning 9.00 - 12.00
These modules usually fill up very quickly, so don't delay.
Remember you will need to attend both sessions.

Only a few weeks left in the current semester. Students
should be well on the way to having their web sites up and running.
It won't be finished, web sites are never finished.
Don't forget to e-mail me the address of your home page, so that
I can check out your site online. Use the link below. Make sure
that you include your full name, especially if you use a nickname
for your e-mail address.
The last three or four classes have given us chance to have a look
at the basics of Macromedia Flash. You should now be able to create
some animation's to enhance your web site.
Don't forget that there are some very good tutorials and also some
sample files that you can examine to see how things are done. Both
the tutorials and the samples are accessed from the Help Menu in
If you want to learn some of the more advanced techniques in Flash,
then you may want to consider the 2D animation and 3D Modelling
modules to be offered next semester.
On Saturday (27th April) we will be heading back to Dreamweaver
to start putting our web pages together in earnest. Don't forget
to bring along your specifications, plans etc. to Saturday's class.
For students in the Tuesday afternoon class, make sure that you
bring along your CD with PhotoImpact on, and we can have a look
at how we can use this program to create professional looking text
objects for our multimedia presentations.
Hey! Gympie crew, we are missing you!
See you next class - Alan
During the break last night, a few of us got talking about music
software. I said that I had found a great site, but I didn't know
the address of the top of my head. Anyway, here it is, Shareware Music Machine.Com
claim to be the world's biggest music software site, and with over
4000 titles available for download it's probably true.
I have started to archive this page, as it was getting
too big. Previous items are still available from the links at the
bottom of the page. They will remain available as long as they are
still being accessed.
Make sure that you check out the News Page. There is information
there about a great bargain on a graphics tablet.
Last Saturday's class saw us playing with some of the basic features
of Flash. We will be concentrating on this program for a few more
classes, until we have covered the basics of this software
Note: These study guides are available
both online and in printed format.
Students should be aware, that the online versions are always the
most up to date.
This area is for questions that
are asked in class, but for one reason or another aren't fully answered.
This may occurs because the question is too complex to answer, without
getting too far off track, or it may be that I don't know the answer
(Hey! I don't profess to know everything).
These questions will quite often be answered by providing a link
to a web page on another site
