  5. The Gnomon Workshop - Maya Dynamics: Underwater Environments | 2.24 GB English | 270 mins | DVD-ISO | SVQ3 1024x768 15 fps | MP3 128 Kbps 44.1 KHz Genre: eLearning In this DVD, John presents the process of creating an underwater effects shot, thoroughly explaining each step of the process from inception to completion. Starting with an ocean bottom and a camera move, John shows how to create underwater atmospheric conditions such as floating particulate matter, photo-real bubbles, water fog and caustic light rippling down through a wavy sea surface. John then uses Maya's Dynamics system to build additional elements into the shot, demonstrating their use within the shot environment. He shows how to use springs and goals to create an anchor and dynamic rope dropping to the sea floor, as well as how to use particle instancing with goals to create dynamic schools of fish. John then walks you through the final steps to create flowing sea grass and billowing sand when the sea bottom is disturbed. By the end of this DVD you will not only have a completed shot ready for fine-tuning and compositing, you will also have the ability to create your own fantastic underwater shots.

  6. Creating Terrains with Satellite Data, Volume 1 : Maya Based Workflow with Alex Alvarez | 6.74 GB In this first DVD of a two-part series, Alex Alvarez shares his techniques for developing terrains using satellite data. In Volume One, the skills necessary to create terrains with a high-altitude camera are explored. We start by location scouting with Google Earth, settling on a region of the Grand Canyon to develop. The National Map, a free service from the USGS, is then used to download the corresponding elevation data (DEM) and satellite photos. As the data is delivered in tiles, we then use GlobalMapper to stitch, and re- tile, the data into a format that can be used in Maya. After removing shadows in Photoshop, Alex thoroughly explains how to setup displacements in Maya and Mental Ray, rendering with the Physical Sun/Sky system. He also delves into how to utilize multiple UV regions with multiple tiled textures on a single plane, allowing for the creation of vast terrains, often needed for fly-through animations. Creating the various textures, such as bump, reflection and gloss using the mia_material are demonstrated, as well as the use of the layered texture node. Filter Forge, a powerful Photoshop Plug-in, is also used to develop tileable procedural bump maps to improve the high-frequency detail of the terrain. Anyone interested in creating natural environments in a Maya based workflow will benefit from this thorough lecture and demonstration, whether it is to recreate real-world locations, or use them as a starting point for imagined environments.

  10. RESTful Web APIs with Spring LiveLessons English | AVC 1280x720 25 fps | AAC 96 Kbps 44.1 KHz | 2.06 GB Genre: eLearning | Level: Intermediate RESTful Web APIs with Spring LiveLessons demonstrates how to write REST services, and manage, secure and consume them using Spring Boot. RESTful Web APIs with Spring LiveLessons REST has enabled people to build mobile applications that capture our imagination, entertain us, and help us. REST has ushered in a generation of incredibly sophisticated, HTML5-powered browser applications. REST has also made it easier for organizations to adopt a service-oriented architecture with less friction. REST's flexibility, however, can also be its greatest weakness: as often as not there is no clear guidance on where to go and how to get there. What does it mean to deploy a REST service? How do you handle errors in a REST service? What's the easiest way to write a REST service? Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long discusses and demonstrates strategies for securing REST API access along with handling errors and versioning. These LiveLessons also cover how hypermedia and HATEOAS help you to deliver developer and consume friendly web services. [Hidden Content]

This course outlines what has changed in web security since the previous 2010 edition, and where developers should now focus their security efforts. The Top 10 Web application security risks produced by OWASP is an evolving resource that helps organizations focus on the most prominent risks in web security today. Every few years we see a revision; the types of attacks we're witnessing change, the defenses change, and the risk and associated priority changes. OWASP adapts to this changing environment and recently made available the 2013 edition of the Top 10. This course is designed to help those who already have an awareness of the Top 10 understand what's new in the latest edition and how the landscape has changed in three short years. It also introduces the concept of "Risk Assessments" and provides further resources to help go beyond just the Top 10 risks. [Hidden Content]
