If you have any Questions, please ask them on the Softimage Mailing List. There are lots of clever Brains, who might know better solutions then me. And also i might sleep for some hours, so you can get a quicker response there.
When you apply this Technic in one of your Projects, it would be nice if you could share your results with me.
Or if you have some Tips, regarding my stile of Presenting/Recording, don't hesitate to write me some mails
Hope you like it.
