    This was my first streaming online class and I have to say I was please and felt it was worth the cost.

    hmm.. opchia I checked out the ON demand last night and it worked fine. Not sure what the issue could be. If the problem persists please forward your invoice and a brief description of the problem to me at scooter(at)theartdepartment(dot)org

    Thanks

    I "attended" the session on Sunday, my first one in fact. I really enjoyed it and honestly would do it every couple of weeks or so (if not every week) at the $50 price.

    The content was amazing. I really enjoyed the first video shown and the discussion during it. I would have like to see a few of the other videos shown in more completion (from start to finish), but understand the time constraints involved. Perhaps in the future when demos like the videos shown are created for specific classes, the "full" versions can be made available for download or viewing?

    Technology issues happened, but they are somewhat to be expected. That being said, the CA team handled them like pros and kept us moving along at a reasonable pace.

    I'm hoping to see similar sessions in the future that are based on traditional art mediums.

    Many thanks to everyone that made this happen, including the participant artists. It was very enlightening and inspiring.

    P.S. - I think someone asked earlier about Mac compatibility -- it ran just fine on my i7 iMac.

    Thanks for the info craz! I got it up and running. Buuuut the video is showing up reallyyy bad quality on my computer and I'm running with comcast highspeed internet (broadband), the sound and everything surrounding is perfect but I know it is supposed to be running in HD and I'm totally not getting that. Its really choppy and the actual photoshop screen is really jagged and blurry. But then later on in the video when it is just the demonstration with Jason it looks perfect. I downloaded the female faces tutorial and it looked amazing so I don’t know whats up. I want to say maybe my computer is not powerful enough but I do a lot of digital art with very high resolution and high pixel count soooo…??? lol
    Help if you can... thanks

    Just finished the On Demand stream of this class. Very nice. I learned a lot and/or was able to see things in a new way. Certainly worth $50!

    Wish I was able to afford TAD. Was a little skeptical how well you could teach art online but this stream impressed me quite a bit.

    Also, where is the "assignment" thread for the 200 heads posted? Don't see it...

    I also have technical problems! I have tried to watch the On Demand Class several times but the Photoshop screen shown is updating in a such annoying way that I have given up to watch the lesson. I guess these problem shouldn't really happen as I'm on a brand new MacBook Pro and a high-speed internet connection, but they do. I also did try the direct link posted during the class but I was directed to a login screen. However, when I look at the text file I got with the purchase it doesn't seem to contain any login information. Can somebody help with this issue?...

    EDIT: I have solved this. Another link was posted a little later in the class. Now I just have to synchronize the video and audio. I guess these experiences have made it clear to me that I prefer a well produced digital download to a streaming class! No point in having these technical issues if you're not able to attend the classes live anyway...

    ANOTHER EDIT: Guess I'm having to give up on this one. Did finally manage to watch the first movie but when I came back to resume the class I'm having all kinds of trouble skipping the part I've already watched. As a matter of fact the Elluminate application is telling me: »76:28 until playback resumes«. Please, you got to be kidding. Don't have that much time on my hands!...

    Can you still watch the female figure on demand and still pay the 50.00 to watch for 30 days?

Why don't you assist a new user of this community in solving a problem instead of being resentful of the fact that I don't like this concept (yet) as much as you apparently do!

    For your information I did in fact enjoy the part of the class I have managed to watch so far! But it's very hard to follow a demonstration that is so technically flawed as this one. And it's very flawed by any standard! As you might well know the video is completely jagged up. It surely helped with the direct links but then you have the problems with synchronizing the sound and video. I can't jump more than a couple minutes back and forth on the Elluminate interface which makes it impossible to skip sections you have already watched!...
