Shlomo Perets, http://www.microtype.com/Training.html

I am offering two new seminars (not FrameMaker-specific)
for the first time in the US:

USING MEDIA CLIPS TO ENHANCE DOCUMENTATION
Boston, May 10 * San Carlos, July 9
When providing electronic documentation (training, online help,
marketing materials), you can create much more than a PDF of the
printed version. Learn how to demonstrate processes and functions
with movie clips; how to plan, script and storyboard a movie
clip; how to record the workflow, edit the movie and add titles,
callouts and captions; and how to integrate the movie into the
documentation. The course also covers setup, output formats and
options, and available tools.

INTERACTIVE 3D MODELS IN PDFs
Boston, May 11 * San Carlos, July 10
How to incorporate interactive 3D visualizations in technical
publications. Topics include: creating multiple views & cross
sections; lighting settings; Acrobat 3D Toolkit: adding materials,
creating animations and exploded views; enhancing 3D interactivity
with Acrobat JavaScript; part measurements; comments and markups
in interactive 3D models; converting models from CAD to U3D and
PDF; capturing models from CAD.

The TECHWR-L Daily Summary Mailing, a separate mailing list
that summarizes new content posted to Employment Central and
the Calendar, can further help get your
message out to interested people:
http://www.techwr-l.com/techwhirl/daily-announce-info.html


These resources are available at no cost to anyone, posters
or seekers, TECHWR-L subscribers or not. We encourage you to
regularly use these free services.

want to be mailed directly to all 5100+ TECHWR-L subscribers
in the TECHWR-L Premium Daily Announcement, please contact us
