Remote Control with TeamViewer
One of the most common questions I get asked is "How do you access your Mac remotely?", followed by "How do you access your friends and family's Macs to offer remote support". The answer is TeamViewer! TeamViewer is a fully featured remote support solution that is free for private use. It's really easy to access other Macs or set up your own Mac for remote access. In this week's show, I take you through the installation and setup, as well as going through some common scenarios. I also take a brief look at the TeamViewer for iOS application, which allows you to access and control any Mac from your iPad.

Completely free form in its approach, Scapple is ideal for roughing out ideas on a huge canvas. AccessMenuBarApp - Is your laptop resolution causing menu bar icons to become hidden? AccessMenuBarApp allows you to show them all with a single keystroke or mouse gesture. VideoGIF - Create animated GIFs for support or just for fun. VideoGIF allows you to capture or convert any video clip into an animated GIF and share via social networks, email or via websites. In this segment, I demonstrate using QuickTime X to do a video screencapture, convert to a GIF and incorporate into a Clarify document.

However, you may have given up on standard Spaces in Mavericks due to it's limitations and inflexibility. TotalSpaces2 could be said to be what Spaces should have been originally. TotalSpaces2 gives you back full control of managing your virtual desktops, with many useful configuration options. TotalSpaces2 finally makes desktop spaces usable! Screens - A neat solution to control and access your Mac desktops locally or remotely using both Macs and iOS devices. With a fully featured Mac client, Screens allows you to setup remote access via its elegant UI and includes a number of easily configurable options such as Quick Connect and custom keyboard shortcuts. Install ScreensConnect and use iCloud to sync your settings and also access your Macs remotely via the separately available Screens for iOS application.

With iCloud (Mac App Store version only) and Dropbox syncing built in, it will sync your image library between other Macs and iOS devices. Full image annotation support as well as a unique subscription module that allows you to subscribe to the images in your favourite RSS services. Pixa is another image library manager with a slightly different focus. Auto tagging will sort your images by size and colour. No library sync, but Pixa has Live folders that allow you to catalogue and update folders of images on your Mac direct from Pixa. With support for many third party graphics application file formats and robust, customisable export features, Pixa may just find a place in your graphics toolbox.

iOS 8 - #5 - Photo Management Description
Photo management has changed in iOS8 with some radical changes. Camera Roll has gone (for now) and Photostream view has also gone. iOS8 is currently in an interim phase with the launch of iPhoto Cloud Library not yet announced, and its absence is causing some confusion. This episode takes you through the current state of photo management on iOS8 with an update of how it works at the current release. Related tutorials available with this one SCOI0190 iOS 8 - #9 - Mail & Calendar Both Mail and Calendar have received minor updates in iOS8 and in this episode I pick out the most significant. One of the best new features in iOS 8 Mail is the ability to triage your email with configurable gestures - swipe left or right to action your email. I take you through the not so obvious way to re-configure the swipe gestures to suit your way of working. I also take a brief look at Family Sharing in iOS 8 Date: 7th November 2014 Duration: 12:06 SCOI0189 iOS 8 - #8 - iCloud Drive on iOS iCloud Drive opens up iOS to previously unimagined flexibility.

As I only covered Photos on iOS last week, and the iCloud Photo Library is causing a lot of confusion, I thought it best to put it through its paces today and explain some of the functionality. Date: 24th October 2014 Duration: 16:42 SCOI0187 iOS 8 - #6 - Camera and Photos App Continuing on from last week as promised - A look at the new Camera app as well as the new editing controls in the new Photos App. The Camera App has been updated with some new features (depending on your iOS device) but the main changes are in the Photos App. iPhoto for iOS is no more and photo editing has been enhanced in the Photos App. You can switch between "easy" editing or open up controls for fine grained adjustments for light, colour or B/W. The new Photo Extensions in iOS 8 also allow you to utilise the photo editing capabilities of other installed photo editors, right from within the Photos App. I demonstrate by using Camera+ on the iPhone. Date: 17th October 2014 Duration: 16:02 SCOI0185 iOS 8 - #4 - Mobile Safari, Sharing & Extensions In this episode I take you through the new features in Mobile Safari.

3D Character Program Make characters
In the 3D Character Program, students learn the crafts of modeling and rigging. This is where the characters are made. Once a design has been sketched on paper, modeling students sculpt them in 3D. It not only has to look beautiful, but the arrangement of points and edges also have to facilitate the next step: articulation. That’s where rigging steps in. Rigging students place bones into the body to bend it properly and control the shape of the form in the myriad of possible poses. Students also learn to articulate the face, segmenting the muscles and motions of the face and head to make the character talk and emote in a convincing and appealing way. Each week, modelers and riggers (Character TDs) from the best studios in the world work with the students one-on-one to give them the best opportunity for improving their own work. Our programs are designed to give the students exposure to the other disciplines. In the 3D Character Program, for the first 4 terms, students focus on modeling and rigging equally. Then 3D Character students gain some experience in animation, so they are able to understand the perspective of the users of their characters, and pre-emptively solve problems that would otherwise only be noticed later. This insight gives them a great advantage: riggers and modelers who can also animate are in great demand. After the two courses on modeling, two on rigging, and a class on animation, the student focuses more specifically on their area of greater interest, selecting two of four electives covering the technical, tools side of rigging, or the sculpting and facial expression side of modeling.
