Dreamweaver 8 Design and Construction: Web Design Production Methods from the Master Architect Builders (O’Reilly Digital Studio)

You’re a beginner who wants to design a state-of-the-art family web site. You’ve just started a new job, and you need to learn Dreamweaver fast. Or maybe you’re a professional who’s been using another program but is now switching to Macromedia’s leading web design tool. Learning Dreamweaver 8 gets you up to speed, quickly and efficiently.

Straightforwardly practical, with speed as the by-word, this hands-on guide focuses on the best practices for constructing both interactive and static web sites. While explaining core concepts clearly and thoroughly, so that beginners have a solid conceptural and technical foundation, it cuts through the clutter that might slow down a beginner tackling a subject as vast as web design and a tool as robust as Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver 8 Design and Construction emphasizes learning by doing, with short, task-oriented chapters that demonstrate theory by presenting design solutions and explaining the principles that make them work. Plenty of screen shots, illustrations, and sample layouts accompany rapid prototyping techniques for site production.

Marc Campbell has been building web sites since 1997-for everything from comic book fan communities to state government portals and e-commerce applications. A Macromedia Certified Dreamweaver Developer and beta tester, he has taught web design to students at all levels and has written eight books on the subject.

Sidebars in Dreamweaver 8 Design and Construction allow readers to decide how deeply they want to delve into the subject. “Best Bets” offer bottom-line recommendations for those who want to skip the general discussion, while “Behind the Scenes” sidebars provide more in-depth looks at particular topics for those who want more detail. Absolute beginner or faux debutante, you’ll learn proven procedures for quickly building Dreamweaver sites.

Stagecraft Fundamentals Second Edition: A Guide and Reference for Theatrical Production

Stagecraft Fundamentals Second Edition tackles every aspect of theatre production with Emmy Award-winning author Rita Kogler Carver’s signature witty and engaging voice. The history of stagecraft, safety precautions, lighting, costumes, scenery, career planning tips, and more are discussed, illustrated by beautiful color examples that display step-by-step procedures and the finished product. This second edition offers even more in-demand information on stage management, drawing and drafting (both by hand and CAD), lighting fixtures, and special effects. Also new to this edition are current articles from Lighting and Sound America, brand new diagrams that illustrate hard-to-grasp concepts, and a plethora of information on European conversions, standards, and practices, making the skills you learn applicable to stage jobs on either side of the ocean!

The accompanying website, www.stagecraftfundamentals.com is bursting with additional material such as an instructor’s manual, CAD drawings, color theory, manufacturing information, and so much more to help you along the way as you learn all about the world of theatre production!

Praise for the Book:

Beautifully written! The author has succeeded in relaying technical theatre information without being too technical and putting the reader to sleep.  I read three sentences and instantly knew this book was for me and the way I teach.  When I think back on  the insufferable intro to tech theatre books I had to read, I feel cheated I didn’t have this one as a student.  I will be using this text in my class! — Rob Napoli, Designer and Technical Director at Penn State University, Berks Campus

This text has temped me to return to teaching with a textbook for the first time in seven years.  The language is both accessible and informal yet the text goes a long way in debunking some of the typical jargon that may alienate students just getting into the field, or trying it out for the first time.  The illustrations (the text is full of them) coupled with the stories reinforce the fundamental information being conveyed. — John Paul Devlin, Associate Professor of Theatre at Saint Michael’s College

What a great idea!  Thank heavens someone is doing this for students at that impressionable age.  That has been one of my mantras – education of teachers and students on the use of scenic materials.  The teachers don’t have enough time in college to learn and do everything they have to teach.  Most get thrown into the theatre area by default and struggle with designing/building/painting the scenery. — Jenny Knott, Rosco

Stagecraft Fundamentals is beautifully illustrated throughout, and the pofusion of color on every page gives this textbook the appearance of a coffee table book.  The writing is clear and personal, which should be very appealing to students.  Rita Carver covers all aspects of theatre production from scenery, to lighting, to an actor’s makeup.  Her close ties to the New York theatre scene gives this book a special insight into the professional world, one that goes well beyond what is found in most college textbooks. — John Holloway, Professor in the Theatre Department at the University of Kentucky and President of the International Association of Theatrical stage Employees (IATSE) Local 346.

I can’t thank you enough for Stagecraft Fundamentals.  I have been teaching stagecraft since 1976 and you have saved me from the nightmare of writing a text to suit my class needs..After two semesters with your text, I have found that I had more time to develop the skills necessary within the classroom than before.   The humor that you have infused in the book has enticed my students to read on.  That alone makes this text invaluable.
–Meta Lasch, Assistant Professor, West Liberty University

The Flash Webisode Production Handbook (With CD-ROM)

With over 500,000 users, Flash is one of the most popular animation and streaming tools available for the Web today. It is used to create “webisodes” which are streaming productions used in advertising, entertainment, education, contests, and interactive television. With The Flash Webisode Production Handbook, developers, producers, and animators learn how to maximize all of Flash’s animation and production power. Each chapter focuses on a specific part of the development process of an actual cartoon webisode that will be completed by the end of the book. Within each chapter there are examples and exercises that help designers acquire problem-solving skills, fundamental knowledge of how to use Flash in movies, and solid animation abilities. “Broken webisodes” are also included to challenge the designers newly acquired problem-solving skills.Learning to animate with Macromedia’s Flash is one thing. Learning to use it in a real-world production environment is something else. The Flash Webisode Production Handbook looks at the production of episodic animation using Flash as the central authoring tool. This book is useful to anyone interested in the animated production process.

While there are countless animation methods and visual styles, the basics of production remain the same. This handbook presents this process from the viewpoint of today’s Flash animator, but opens with a discussion of the devices common to all animation productions: the storyboard, script, characters, and soundtrack. Without a compelling story, even the best animation falls short.

Other important chapters include discussions of bitmap versus vector art, and the difference in visual style and creation process between the two, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each.

Many books in this genre feature countless pages on animation but little on the importance of audio and soundtracks. This book, however, presents over 50 pages on audio: audio compression; using sound in Flash; creating looping music tracks; and synchronizing audio (as in sound effects and dialogue) to the animation. One section is all about using ACID, an excellent Windows audio program, to create looping soundtracks. A demo version of ACID and a music library are among the goodies on the CD-ROM, too.

Animating using Flash doesn’t end with the movement onscreen, however. Flash movies are often interactive, and the underlying engine for interactivity is Flash’s ActionScript. The last third of this book covers ActionScript techniques and tricks in depth, with countless examples. Well illustrated, with several real-world projects, the Flash Webisode Production Handbook is a must-have for any serious Flash animator interested in doing more than basic animation. –Mike Caputo

Blogs, Wikipedia, Second Life, and Beyond: From Production to Produsage (Digital Formations)

We – the users turned creators and distributors of content – are TIME’s Person of the Year 2006, and AdAge’s Advertising Agency of the Year 2007. We form a new Generation C. We have MySpace, YouTube, and OurMedia; we run social software, and drive the development of Web 2.0. But beyond the hype, what’s really going on?
In this groundbreaking exploration of our developing participatory online culture, Axel Bruns establishes the core principles which drive the rise of collaborative content creation in environments, from open source through blogs and Wikipedia to Second Life. This book shows that what’s emerging here is no longer just a new form of content production, but a new process for the continuous creation and extension of knowledge and art by collaborative communities: produsage. The implications of the gradual shift from production to produsage are profound, and will affect the very core of our culture, economy, society, and democracy.

After Effects in Production

A companion volume to “Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects”. It teaches motion graphics skills with working examples in the form of tutorials, case studies and studio profiles. Students and advanced users alike learn the secrets that make the authors and the contributing project artists the best in the business. Hands-on tutorial projects demonstrate an array of techniques, and analyses of case studies provide a comprehensive review of related technical details and artistic decisions. Finally, a selection of studio profiles provides insight into how other working artists have used After Effects to achieve extraordinary results.The most experienced professionals in any field are the first ones to say there is always more to learn. Often, the best way to learn is to be a fly on the wall while watching a peer. Chris and Trish Meyer have given After Effects users a unique and wonderful opportunity in After Effects in Production, allowing us to look over the shoulders of some of the best motion-graphics designers in the business and watch and learn as they go through the creative process. Unlike the fly on the wall, though, we have the chance to occasionally put down the book and practice what’s been learned.

In the tutorials section, the authors break down the process of creating broadcast-quality motion graphics into a dozen step-by-step tutorials. Each tutorial focuses on or introduces a particular feature, and often builds on features that were introduced in a previous tutorial. The enclosed CD-ROM includes all 12 project and media files (and the final rendered movies), giving the reader the chance to build the project from scratch or carefully dissect a project that’s already built.

Case Studies, a far smaller section of the book (but equal in value to the rest), explores, breaks down, and dissects After Effects projects that are on the air or on the Web, including work from such studios as Belief, ATTIK, and Curious Pictures. While less step-by-step oriented, one gets the chance to learn why each project was handled the way it was, rather than how.

As an added bonus, the CD-ROM includes numerous free plug-ins from such vendors as Pinnacle, Media 100, Boris, Trapcode, and the Foundry for both Mac and Windows versions of After Effects. There’s also plenty of bonus material to read and sift through in the form of PDF files–additional tutorials, tips and tricks, and project templates.

After Effects in Production is a must-have book for any user who intends to grow into a serious designer, or for the serious designer who simply intends to keep on growing. –Mike Caputo
