RE:Check this out

OK - couldn't stay away...

<!--http--><a href="" target="_blank">Brian Lencho's First Striper!</a><!--url-->

Actually, he was fresh off the plane from Seattle and I rushed him to the water to jump on Capt. Bruce Peter's 25' boat, "Miss Lillian". Bruce is a bass hound if there ever was one and Brian had the lucky hand all afternoon.


It's easy to download the software. The results aren't visible unless you have java runtime, so if anyone wanted to author some of this stuff we would use a common directory where the class files live. I used low-res images to save space but you can set the zoom ranges (min/max) and thus for high res images you could really get good fidelity at big zoom rates. The trade-off is performance, which is already burdened with the applet load times.

I didn't get fancy but if you use same pixel size images then you can do power-point style fades, dissolves, and other transition types.

Another applet vendor (freeware) is "Anfy", who is the supplier of the water applet I used on <!--http--><a href="" target="_blank">stripers101 dawn scene</a><!--url-->. Anfy has a similar mechanism as this, and I believe it (applet) may be faster loading.

In any case it's a fun tool and will have applications in the Forum over time.

I've downloaded the Hotmedia package (free). VERY NICE, but since I have been totally ignoring the new page updates while playing with this cool toy I am gonna have to come back to it. If anyone wants to try it out, see the url I included above for the free download location for this great tool.

Expect that we WILL use the features extensively in the future.

Very nice! Kinda like an MS Powerpoint slide show presentation.

This reminds me of a thought I had about setting up a virtual tying clave. The idea came to me after I bought my kids a couple of Intel Pro-Share USB cameras this past Christmas. Imagine the whole board tying together online! Kind of a neat concept. Or maybe then again I need a life.

Nice find......thank god for T1s and DSL though. Looks like some shared interests in the realm of tying. Maybe we can have a space in the pattern library to include instruction
links for various patterns.
The saltwater stuff may be on a lot of people minds. It would be great to have an instructional on some of the more important salt flies.
I'm guessing a macro lens is a must for the imaging? Any one know?

Off and running.....

Luis! Nice schnauzer work

This is an IBM commerce suite product called HotMedia, and this module is free. I am downloading it.

There are actually other slide shows including the ones in photoshop / and apps like it that are not java classes so thus are faster running and loading.

In any case, I will spend most of the day today on the site and will put some time toward the evaluation of this software. If anyone else wants to download and learn about Hotmedia, use the link above to get there.

talk later today,

Hey guys:
Hadn't seen this type of step-by-step tying on the web before. Try it only if you have a fast speed conection. I thought it was pretty cool. is this kind of thing doable for us?
