Back in the dark ages, I had a job that involved some fairly simple programming in Fortran and Basic. Then I moved into another field, and haven't done any programming for many, many years.
So, I have some concept of how programming works, but it's VERY elementary and totally pre-dates stuff like Object Orientated Programming, etc.
So, how did I get on with this book?
It went in two stages. For the first few chapters I sailed along at great speed. Then around chapter 4 or so, I seemed to hit a brick wall - the learning curve suddenly turned into a vertical cliff-face, extending into the clouds without a single hand or foot hold. I got frustrated, and… Read more
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme(What's this?)
First the disclaimer: I was given this free for review purposes.
In a nutshell: Do I like it? Yes, a lot. Would I buy another if something happened to this one? Absolutely not.
First, the good stuff. This alarm starts to glow gently half-an-hour before your wake-up time. The glow very slowly intensifies over the next 30 minutes, until by your set time (when the audio alarm also comes on) it's blazing away at full intensity.
Personally I found that it reliably wakes me, very gently, 15 minutes before the alarm time. This is so consistent that if I want to wake at, say 7, I now set the alarm for 7.15.
If you do want the audio alarm, you have… Read more
From as early as Poser 6 or 7, I've been getting the feeling that the developers were increasingly losing the plot. Things that had been simple to do became more awkward, and the general workflow felt more cumbersome and tedious. Things that weren't broken were 'fixed', and things that WERE broken stayed broken.
I must be one of the few people who have been using poser ever since Poser 1 (of course, it was just called 'Poser' back then). I love the software, both for what it can create as a standalone, and for how I can feed its output into other software to create even better pictures.
As another reviewer has pointed out, it's a pain to use Daz3D figures - though I… Read more
