What amazing tools! Unfortunately, I don't feel that I really have a grasp on the basics, much less the full potential (the preview in class just blew me away). I did manage to do the exercises, but it wasn't just the slow internet that made it difficult--there's just so much to learn. This is a workshop that definitely should have been longer, or, if that was really impossible, perhaps more time could have been spent on the basics, so that the exercises could even have been done in class (although there is the practical impossibility of doing #11--oh well). Often, when you feel comfortable with part of a process, it's easier to go in & explore on your own.
But, if I ever have some time to explore & play (sorry, for the moment, I don't have internet access at home, so work time is the only time; yes, I know I live in the Dark Ages), I think I'll like these tools very much.
And yes, in spite of the 2 assistants I did fall behind in class, as did my neighbor. Please, more time if it's taught again!
Well, this is very unfortunate--I had to leave for a meeting, & didn't finish a post, so now I get to embed a video again!!! in my blog.
Wow!! the internet is moving faster than this morning!
