Tutorials?!

Post by Joe Wigzell » Thu Apr 18, 2013 10:21 am

Hello!

I am looking at developing more video tutorials here at the Academy and would like to give you a chance to have your say as to which tutorials you think would be most useful?
If you would like to answer any of the following questions your input will no doubt help others down the line:

1. When you were learning to use VersaWorks what online tutorials do you think would have helped you the most?

2. When learning about your machine what tutorials would you have found useful?

3. Are there any aspects of either software or the machine that you are still unsure of and think that online support would help?

Any suggestions or comments are welcome!

Thanks

Joe

Nice one Joe. and much appreciated - now how about a follow up video tutorial showing how to change a cutting strip on the BN-20 for all of those inspired by your video and trying to get perfcut right on the BN-20! :idea: :)

Have just found out that you can't get the pinchroller/clamps off to make changing (of a consumable part) easy. :shock:

All the best

Hi Hugh,

All done...follow this link!

There wasn't really any magical easy solution...but this is how we would recommend doing it.

Let us know how you get on.

I am really interested in colour matching and colour management in general right though my work-flow. I notice that the X-Rite i1 products are now being promoted by Roland in the US and would be interested in a tutorial of the benefits of using this. I am also interested in the whys and wherefores of linearising my printer...

Cheers

Rich
P.S. Do you ever run an Advanced Digital Print course - the Intermediate one was brilliant, but I am now looking for the next level.

Hi DrRich!

We do not currently run an advance course- I am looking at the possibility of introducing a colour management course later in the year. The problem with this is that it is not an exact science/process- and you need to fork out for the setup/equipment/software. We can teach the process and show how to use the software but after that it's practice and time. The other option is to get in a colour profile specialist to run some profiles for you and show you how to use the software and equipment.
Colour matching and management was covered at the Intermediate level, if you want to go deeper into the theories and processes that were discussed it might be worth getting ahold of a colour management book for digital print.
All the best
