Very nice video ! “what the hex is your problem” ^^ More videos like that would be awesome :)
Nice! Yeah this clarified some information I did not realize needed clarifying. The numbering system makes sense to me now. How clever.
This is actually one of the few tutorials I have taken a look at the last several weeks and it’s quite awesome! :)
Wish I could read a transcript…not a fan of video…but then again I am weird.
Nice lightwrap ;)
Although this video may clear up a LOT of questions some may ask, the information is essentially redundant. Quite simply, we have gone this far without understanding the technicalities behind the software, very few even know what the application is made in(ie what code it is derived from/in)! I learnt this a long while back when trying to manipulate a certain filetype, it ended up leading no-where once I understood what hex-decimal was. However, I enjoy finding out the technicalities behind certain features in the applications we love, however, this is quite literally redundant, but its still fun though :P. Thats just my two cents on the subject, if you enjoy learning about the technicalities behind certain things, then go right ahead, but be mindful a)it is quite confusing initially(although they have done a wonderful job of explaining it) b)it is essentially useless information, the applications take care of all the jargon for you ;)
anyways, nice video, I would enjoy to learn more about various applications and there features :D
Could you explain the Pantone color system? and how that works?
Awesome explanation….my students finally grasped the concept!
“Computers like to think in groups of eight” Come come Sir. Groups of two surely :)
Worryingly, I’ve being working on computers for so long I can convert decimal to hex in my head :(
Anyhoo, a mate of mine taught DTRTC (Digital Techniques & Real Time Computing) years ago. At the end of an eighteen month course his feedback contained the following:
“During the binary module you taught us that 1 + 1 = 10. I still don’t believe that.”
..anyone told you that computer only speak binary? NOT hex. Only binary.
and.. just for you: 16 = 2^4 or more specific: 1111 in binary For future you must explain truth about computer numbers system.. and not the truth you find more easy to explain.
I didn’t think I needed to go that deep into it.
Yes ! yes yes yes yes yay yo yeah ! quiet a learning video ! far from a : do that like this and do this like that ! you getting closer to THE content which is the key to giving your community a common point to focus on, despite all the trainings and the knowhow you’d give and the hard work it implicates, the most important is we are all humans after all and dare to be connected each other so by giving knowledge in a human to human relationship you’re entering the real graal : you focus your community around your company. I like to see a human face and draw a face upon your company now. Good start, never stop then ! Have a good one, cheers, aooo !
Next up, an in-depth look at why the percentage controls go from 0 to 100.
haha! hillarious! I know how to convert numbers to hex and binary but it just happens that i have to write a test about it next week… so the little reminder just came in the right moment + this was fun to watch! :D
I think I’m more confused now than before I watched the video.
do you have a CS background? it sounds so binary to me.
OK i have a question if we have 1f is that 116 or what i mean how can i read it if there is af ? and thanx for this tutorial
There are a TON of conversion charts online, but this should help
from 0 to 99 there are 100 values form 0 to 255 there are 256 values… 0 is also a value!
thnx adam…its very very useful…..;)
Great video!! Very educational and well done.
Am I the only one to see something similar between Adam and Nick from Greyscale Gorilla?
Thanx for that interesting lesson! Pretty hard than binary system, I think. Thank You!
haha. Adam, this is great! Nobody else could take so long and sound so good explaining something I already knew! You sound like Rob Bell, hehehe. Blessings
…. thanks? :)
hi, nice video but I have a queastion what microphone do you use in this video ?
