New Feature for Video Player

Our tutorial video player now allows dynamic scrubbing. Basically you can skip to any part of the tutorial without having to download the entire video first.

Benefits:

  • Re-watch specific parts or tips quicker
  • Skip over bad (but hilarious) jokes
  • Watch tutorials in chunks and skip ahead on demand
  • Skip over tutorial info and listen to only jokes

Give it a try

Another thing we are working on is the ability to catalog chapter points for easier reference and tracking of in-depth tutorials.

Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]

This isn't working on all the tuts. I've been trying to get through "Soul Removal" for about 3 days. I have to keep starting the tut over! Not only does my footage look like it's soul is being removed, but I feel like a piece of my own soul is being removed every time I have to start over! LOL

Thanks for all you do!

That's great, thank you.

Now I can replay those bits that I am too slow to absorb in the first instance as well as being able to replay the jokes over and over too!

Chapters function is useful like the rev3 one.
Also some rev3 fans don't catch some phrases... but I say:
"it's not Oprah! Learn the basics & watch the screen!" so please... DON'T INCLUDE TRANSCRIPTS (^___^)

V.useful feature - thanks. Do you think you could also add a bookmark feature so we can bookmark bits we know we will use in the future? This may mean we need to log into the site, but that's a small price to play. Just an idea ...

Fantastic - I like to watch the whole thing as each tutorial is launched but when I have time to actually follow the tutorial then this feature will help a great deal in skipping to the parts I want to refresh my mind with.

Often I adapt parts of your tutorial to use in my own projects so being able to skip to the bits of interest makes it a lot easier.

I know there has been several times I have accidentally hit the play button instead of the pause button and had to wait until the entire tutorial has reloaded from scratch.

So thank you for this feature :D
