Logs and Sketching Presentation, first draft.
      #3587862 - 01/27/10 06:16 PM Attachment (54 downloads)

Ok, I have the bulk of the information I think I want to add. Not sure if I should do more.

Remember, this is an introduction to logs, not a detailed "How to" guide. I'm just wanting to hit the basics to get people interested and started on their own logs in our club...

So, please look it over and see what you think. I'll be changing some of the animations, fonts, and colors. Also fixing for grammar and spelling, so you don't need to point those out. But let me know if any of the information is incorrect, or needs something.


EDIT: Upload didn't work. Added it to my site for download.

Neo

That's nicely done! Any objection if I send the link to the mailinglist of my astroclub?

Wait till I finish the project. I have a bit of cleaning up to do, and I may add some bits in it yet.

Looks great, Jeff.

The only thing I might add is a comment about adding limb darkening on the computer (right after you talk about cropping the planet circle). It's one thing that I find very hard to get right on the sketch but quite easy in Photoshop, and it makes a huge difference with Jupiter.

Cheers,
-- Jeff.

Will see about adding that part Jeff... I need to see if I can locate the after one (or do it myself with the owners permission).

Yann, wait till I finish the whole thing. You're welcome to use it. (Just keep my name in it).

Ok, went back to jay's tutorial and grabbed the final image.... I didn't go through every step, I just added a mention of all that can be done (levels, color, darkening, motion blur), and show the final image...

Well, a few more opinions and I'll agree.

I just need to do some cleaning up, proofing, and perhaps do something with the text to make it snappy...
