  • Putting computers to work - That's what SSDS does

    99.99% of computer resources are wasted, as the computers sit idle. So code that isn't 100% perfect, is OK. Of late I have been checking out E-Learning conferences and replying to their emails and not getting any replies. I hope some Swampies get on the e-learning bandwagon.. Wow e-learning conferences without SSDS are such a waste.

  • Cloaked Sky Megalodon spotted

     And it's even bigger that first imagined. Right at the 80 - 83 second mark the REST of the entity is visible. Only by watching this segment forward and backward multiple times did SSDS reveal this new Knowledge. It seems to be 2 or 3 times as BIG... The main image is preceeded by a much fainter one. Only with SSDS you say. ...

  • Whose computer is it anyway - Just Jam IT

    During tests of the Fast Forward option I have discovered the need for another FEATURE...   When other jobs start up; the fast forward feature sometimes goes into stops and starts during playback.   Few others watch video My way.

  • Not so fast.. 6 or 7 times is plenty

     20 times speed - just skips too much stuff.  For 'the cloud shoot' video 6 or 7 times speed increase is plenty. Set it to start at every 1/2 second mark and play for 1/12 second. Then "skip and play" again and again.

  • Fast Forward uncloaks slow moving artifacts

     In testing out the Fast forward option I viewed the cloaked object. It is much easier to see the artifacts in FF Dang I'm forgetful I implemented the FF option way back on 08Feb2012 (page 48). The latest version has minor enhancements.  I can now set the offset for the start. Ie if I skip 2 seconds and play .08 of a second I may ...

  • Random FastForward - THE favorite feature

     When you have tons of video like I do then you'll realize how important the Fast FastForward is. Blast through those wedding videos! My next screen reshoot video will show off this feature. Not sure what the subject will be? Quick replay of a farmyard goats day. Cloud formations and shadows cast on local mountains. Aliens. So many ...
