Adobe After Effects CS5 : The Timeline - Spatial Offsets
3D animators are familiar with the idea that every object (or layer) has a pivot point. In After Effects, there are two fundamental ways to make a layer pivot around a different location: Change the layer’s own anchor point, or parent it to another layer.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : The Timeline - Timeline Panel Shortcuts
The term “überkey” apparently plays on Friedrich Nietzsche’s concept of the “übermensch”—like such an individual, it is a shortcut more powerful and important than others.
Adobe Flash Professional CS5 : Exploring Companion Technologies & Recognizing Project Potential
HTML is not going anywhere, regardless of the prolific nature of Flash on the Web. Using HTML to your advantage is very important because it is undeniably the best solution for certain forms of Web deployment

Adobe has built in numerous security measures to make sure AIR applications have the same level of trust that desktop applications do.
Creating Basic Windows Images : Building a Reference Computer (part 2) - Preparing the reference computer for imaging
The disadvantage of an exact copy is that it is an exact copy. More specifically, items such as the computer name, IP address, and Security Identifier (SID) are copied to each and every computer.
Creating Basic Windows Images : Building a Reference Computer (part 1)
When building your master image, you will need to take into account all hardware in your environment. The most common reason that organizations choose to support multiple images is that they must support varying hardware.
Adobe Illustrator CS5 : Working with Illustrator Documents - Artboards
In Illustrator, the artboard defines the maximum drawing area that you can print. The artboard is useful as a guide to where objects on a page belong. The maximum printable size is 227 × 227 inches or 358 square feet.
Adobe Illustrator CS5 : Setting Up a New Document & Modifying the Setup of a Document
Document Setup no longer contains Artboard options. Instead, you need to either click Edit Artboards in the Document Setup dialog box or select the Artboard tool from the Tools panel.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 : Working with Layers - Selecting Layers & Creating a Layer Group
Layer groups help to bring organization to large, multi-layered documents. Photoshop layer groups give you control over all the layers within the group at one time. For example, multiple layers within a group can all be hidden or locked with one click of a button.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 : Working with Layers - Creating a New Layer
Layers give you control over the design elements of your document, so Adobe Photoshop makes sure you have plenty of layers available to you. While that may be more layers than you would ever use in a single document, that flexibility guarantees that you have the creative options to carry your designs to any level you desire.
Configure and Manage Shared Folders : Understand Default Permissions
Your user account prevents anyone who is using a standard account on your computer from seeing your files. It does not prevent other users with administrator accounts from seeing your files. If there are other administrator accounts on your computer besides your own, take this into consideration.
Configure and Manage Shared Folders : Create Your Own Shared Folders
You will probably want to create your own folder and folder structure for organizing data. Although the Documents folder may be good enough for personal data such as tax records, letters you’ve written, and a spreadsheet with your home budget, you will probably need folders that are more project- or task-specific to really stay organized.
Deploying with Windows DS : Capturing Custom Images & Using Windows DS with BDD 2007
Windows DS can deploy more than just default images from the Windows Vista media. You can create custom boot images and install images, and then import them into Windows DS for automated distribution.
Deploying with Windows DS : Importing Images & Managing Image Security
Once you have installed and configured the Windows DS service, you can add additional Windows PE boot images (boot.wim) and Windows Vista install images (install.wim).
Deploying with Windows DS : Configuring Windows DS & Preparing Discover Images
For client computers that do not support PXE booting, you can create boot disks using a DVD, a hard disk, or a UFD. You can create these disks by using the Windows DS administration tools or the Windows PE administration tools from the Windows AIK.
Deploying with Windows DS : Installing Windows DS
Unless you plan to use RIPREP legacy images, you can proceed with the configuration of Windows DS at this point. To enable Windows DS mixed mode, ensure that you do not install this update until at least one RIPREP image is installed on the RIS server.
Creat a Windows Home Server (part 3) - Configure the Backup Settings & Configure the Windows Home Server Settings
By default, all the hard drives on all your home computers will be backed up every night between midnight and 6 a.m. You might just want to leave that setting the way it is. You can customize these settings in the Windows Home Server Console by using the Settings option if you want, though.
Creat a Windows Home Server (part 2) - Configure Windows Home Server Settings & Manage Windows Home Server
With everything installed, you can now start personalizing Windows Home Server. You’ll need to create user accounts for everyone on your network and familiarize yourself with the shared folders on the new server.
Creat a Windows Home Server (part 1) - Run Windows Home Server Setup & Troubleshoot
You must be able to connect to your network and the Internet before continuing. You can perform several tasks if you are having trouble accessing your network or the Internet, including verifying your workgroup name, creating a new connection, and using Device Manager to update an Ethernet adapter, controller, or similar device.
Deploying with Windows DS : Planning for Windows DS
Windows DS supports booting computers directly from a boot image over the network. This image boots using the PXE boot specification and needs to be able to receive broadcast messages from PXE clients.
Deploying with Windows DS : Introducing Windows DS - Service Architecture & Operating Modes
Windows DS supports remote, on-demand deployment of Windows Vista images located in a central image store. It is available as an add-on to Windows Server 2003 systems running RIS and is the native remote installation technology provided with Windows Server Code Name “Longhorn.”
Using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 : Imaging with MDT (part 3)
There are a number of standard properties available for customization, and each is documented in the Toolkit Reference.doc file included in the Deployment Process documentation. It should also be noted that you can define your own custom properties if a standard property is not found that meets your needs.
Using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 : Imaging with MDT (part 2) - Preparing a reference computer
The automated process installs Vista, reboots, automatically logs on, and continues the installation process including the installation of applications and Windows PE. Sysprep is used to generalize the system, and it then reboots to Windows PE and creates the image (WIM) over the network on the server share.
Using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 : Imaging with MDT (part 1)
With everything installed and ready to go, it is time to put the workbench to work. Because the most common use of MDT is establishing and configuring LTI deployment, this section focuses on LTI development and deployment.
Using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 : Installing and Configuring MDT
Start by downloading MDT from the Microsoft Web site and run the simple setup. Like most any setup, you must be an administrator to perform the installation and go through a simple wizard interface for accepting the license agreement, choosing a target directory, and initiating the actual installation.
Introducing the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (part 2) - Getting familiar with the tools of MDT
The Enterprise Learning Framework (ELF) is a tool designed to help corporations develop a training and communication plan for employees during Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system deployment.
Introducing the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (part 1) - Going over documentation
The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) is made up of both documentation and tools designed to help tie together several different utilities and scripts. These utilities and scripts are collected here in order to provide a cohesive end to end solution for deploying Windows systems.
Turn On and Manage Printer Sharing : Add a Shared Printer Connected to Another PC
To access a printer connected to another PC on the network from your Windows Vista–based machine, you’ll need to add it manually. You can achieve this through Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, and Printers.
Migrating from Vista to Windows 7 : Installing Windows 7
Before you begin the upgrade process, you must have downloaded and installed either Vista Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2. The upgrade software will not work unless the Service Pack has been installed.
Turn On and Manage Printer Sharing : Configure Advanced Printer Settings & Access a Local Printer
Generally you’ll print to a printer from an application such as a word processing, spreadsheet, database, or graphic imaging program. The option to print is frequently in the File menu, and often, an icon exists on a menu bar, a toolbar, or a separate pane in the interface.
Turn On and Manage Printer Sharing : Set Security Permissions
Although you can set advanced NTFS permissions for printers, don’t. Set advanced permissions only if the share permissions won’t work for you. Mixing share and NTFS (advanced) permissions can result in problems with “effective” permissions later that will be difficult to diagnose.
Turn On and Manage Printer Sharing : Add Drivers
With most printers, by default, drivers for x86-based PCs are installed when the printer is. However, not all PCs are x86-based; some are x64-based, and some are Itanium-based.
Turn On and Manage Printer Sharing : Share a Printer with the Windows Vista Operating System
With a printer connected to a Windows Vista–based PC and turned on, you’re ready to share it with others on the network. There aren’t too many steps to basic sharing. You’ll need to locate the printer in Windows Vista and then share it.
Working with the User State Migration Tool (part 2) - Collecting files and settings with ScanState, Restoring files and settings with LoadState
On Windows 2000 and XP systems, you can simply log on and run the tool with an administrative account. On Windows Vista systems, you will be prompted by User Authentication Control (UAC) to allow the tool to run with this required access.
Working with the User State Migration Tool (part 1) - Customizing migration with USMT
Although the command line options discussed later in this section dictate what actions are performed by the ScanState and LoadState tools, the XML-based configuration files dictate what is backed up.
Migrating User Data : Windows Easy Transfer
Windows Easy Transfer is designed for interactive use and does not provide the automation features for mass usage as offered by the User State Migration Tool (USMT).
Preventive Maintenance and Data Recovery
Restoring a Complete PC Backup involves erasing your hard disk and replacing all your data with the data in the backup. This means any data on your hard disk created or modified since your last backup will be sucked into oblivion, so you'll likely only want to use this feature if your hard disk crashes.
Dealing with Drivers and Other Tales of Hardware Troubleshooting (part 4)
Bad memory can manifest itself in anything from frequent error messages and crashes to your system simply not starting. Errors in your computer's memory (RAM) aren't always consistent, either; they can be intermittent and can get worse over time.
Dealing with Drivers and Other Tales of Hardware Troubleshooting (part 3) - Go Back in Time with Restore Points and Shadow Copies
The System Restore service runs invisibly in the background, routinely backing up drivers, important system files, and certain Registry settings so that at some point, you can roll back some or all of your computer's configuration to an earlier time.
Dealing with Drivers and Other Tales of Hardware Troubleshooting (part 2) - Interpret Device Manager Errors
From time to time, Device Manager will report a problem with one of your devices by marking it with a yellow exclamation mark (!) or a red ×.
Dealing with Drivers and Other Tales of Hardware Troubleshooting (part 1) - How to Add Hardware
Windows Vista comes with a huge assortment of drivers for hardware available at the time of its release, but as time passes, more third-party devices are released, requiring drivers of their own.
Crashes and Error Messages (part 6) - Green Ribbon of Death & Blue Screen of Death
The Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) is aptly named. It's blue, it fills the screen, and it means death for whatever you were working on before it appeared. Microsoft refers to BSoD errors as "Stop Messages," a euphemism for the types of crashes that are serious enough to bring down the entire system.
Crashes and Error Messages (part 5) - What to Do When a Program Crashes
There's something comforting about Windows inviting you to share details about your last application crash with Microsoft engineers—people who, presumably, can use that information to help solve the problem.
Crashes and Error Messages (part 4) - Check Your Drive for Errors with Chkdsk
The Chkdsk utility—chkdsk.exe, pronounced "check disk" for those who enjoy pronouncing program executable filenames—scans your hard disk for errors and optionally fixes any it finds.
Crashes and Error Messages (part 3) - Manage Startup Programs
The Startup folder in the Start menu is where most people go if they want Windows to start an application automatically when it boots. Just drag a shortcut to the program into the folder, and Windows will do the rest.
Crashes and Error Messages (part 2) - What to Do When Windows Will Not Start
Malware, or malicious software, is a class of software designed specifically to wreak havoc on a computer—your computer. Malware includes such nasty entities as viruses, Trojan horses, worms, and spyware.
