Discreet has just announced a free & unique way to help Combustion users "Jump Start" their combustion learning experience!
Discreet has posted at their webiste about 30 completed combustion workspaces (CWS) that demonstrate effects, techniques and more. You can use each CWS as a learning tool to see how things are done, or, use the CWS as a starting point for, or addition to, your very Combustion projects.
The type of CWS projects you will are find include:
Effects-Based CWS examples: Projector.cws; Magnifying_Glass.cws; global_002.cws
Motion Graphics-Based CWS examples: Paintlayers3Dspace2.cws; Funky_bg.cws; Psychedelic.cws; StripeBall.cws; paint_TextJumble.cws; box_master.cws; gradient bands.cws; smiley.cws; wackadoo_paint.cws; Psychedelic_wave.cws; particle.cws
Text-Based CWS examples: paint_InvertSelectionAnim.cws; Handwritting.cws; Create_2.cws; Neon Flicker.cws; VH Text Glow.cws; Bubbletext.cws; Slotmachine.cws; Cylinder_text.cws
Transition-Based CWS examples: Blind_Trans.cws; Center_Twist.cws; Rip_Trans.cws; Blockturn.cws; flip.cws; Puzzle.cws; Drill.cws; AtoB_Sphere_Spin.cws
To use the CWS projects, you will need combustion v2 (full or demo software.) Just download and open the corresponding .cws file and be sure to also get the "How To..." PDF, which will guide you through the process of using the workspaces.
