Humm, does look powerful. I can see it being useful when you have blueprints in the background, you can create a ton of polys or curves and just select and snap them to the background image.

Tutorials come in all forms. Some just show off features and tools some may not be aware of like this one. Some walk you thru step by step so that you end up making something specific.Some are just a video showing someone model or animate.

I prefer a mixture of all of the above. Just for fun I wanted to check and see what the definition was for "Tutorial"...here is some of what I discovered:

>A computer-based, interactive method of learning.

>A tutorial is a connected series of test cases that lead the user through the key features of the software. Through the process of following the tutorial, the user learns how to use the software.

>Small group teaching sessions led by a tutor for discussion and the provision of individual assistance.

>Web-based exercises which you will work through to help you understand the basic concepts of research.

>In British academic parlance, a tutorial is a small class of one, or only a few, students, in which the tutor (a professor or other academic staff member) gives individual attention to the students.

kinda fun to read....never really gave it that much thought :)

who the **** cares if it's called a tutorial or a quick demo; it's useful information for those who were unaware of the jump tool. ;)

As far as I am concerned, if you did not know about the jump tool, then Proton acted in behalf of a teacher or tutor and now you know, so you learned something from the tutorial.
