Help! I can't change the texture/map of a prefab I duplicated without also changing the original Prefab in unity game engine!
Does this sound like the problem? You duplicated a prefab in Unity and when you go to change it's texture, map or colour you find the original prefab changes too? You ask yourself; Is this an instance? Are the prefabs connected? Do I have to somehow ungroup them, disconnect them or break them?
Inserting the filename is really handy in Indesign documents. It means if you are viewing the .pdf or a printed version and you need to look for it then you can see what to search for because the name of the document has been stamped into the indesign file. Even better, Indesign will do it dynamically, so that after you have inserted the filename into your indesign document if you later decide to change the filename, when you open the document up again in Indesign, the filename will update automatically (just be careful you only change the filename before it’s printed or sent out, otherwise you might defeat the purpose if inserting there filename in the In Design document in the first place!).
I can show you how with a single screenshot.
Here's how to insert a filename stamp into an Indesign document:
Are you using Mail designer or Mail designer pro (the Mac app by Equinux) and want to do a test? The easiest way I found is to output as html and then double click the HTML file so you can test the email in your browser.
There is just one problem. How do you set the path so that the images are displayed when you output HTML Mail Designer (normal and Pro 3) from Equinux and open the file locally.
The solution is simple. The path to put into the “Export design as website” dialogue so that it will work locally is ./
It’s as simple as that. To make the email html file work off you hard drive when using Mail Designer from Equinux jus put ./ as the “prefix images with” path.
Putting ./ in the “prefix images with” are of the Export design as website dialogue box will tell Mail Designer to write that into the code and now when you double click the html, it will load up perfectly.
Flipping normals in cinema 4D. It's easy. But when I had a 3D game object which was viewed from the ouside but was invisible to the renderer because the normals weren't on the correct side, do you think I could find a quick explanation? So if you are looking to find out how to flip normals in Cineam 4D I hope this helps:
This pic show how you can flip the normals in Cinema 4D is easy,... once you know how.
So, I made a short video because one of the biggest problems people have is finding a printer that is cheap to run. At home or in the office the problem generally with home printers is that they cost to much to use.
Because I've been in the printing industry for twenty years, I know the one thing you need to look out for when you want a cheap printer. It's not the cost of purchasing it, it's the running cost. This video shows a new type of printer which drastically brings down the running cost making these printers the lowest cost per page and the cheapest printer to own and run.
One thing I will say though, they aren't fast. If you're organised like me, it's not a problem. Where I work it's a different story. They suddenly want pages and pages of print without any warning and they are always complaining about how slow the printer is (so the are going to replace it with a machine which will cost about 150€ per month more for the same amount of print).
Anyway, if you want a printer with the lowest per page cost, this is it. It's great for the home or office just prepare for the fact that it is slow:
I don't know how many times I've heard people say "overprice piece of crap" when talking about an Apple product. If course none of those people had ever used OS X and very few of them understood the value proposition of quality=longevity, free lifetime updates, lower maintenance costs and better user experience/improved productivity. They tended to think like: 4gb is better than 2gb. Thats where the "piece of crap" comment comes form, the inference that a lower hardware specification means a less capable device. The "over priced" part really happens because you can buy cheap PC's, but cheap I mean, cheaply built with budget plastic parts. But as soon as you get a PC with a similar build quality you will see that Apple products are not at all overpriced.
The truth is that a devices quality and preformance depend on both hardware and software. Thet´s why Apple continually outperforms, because it develops both.
So I got more than a little bit of Shadenfruede to learn that the new Samsung flagship phone is more expensive than the current iPhone and does't even hold a candle to it performance-wise.
So Apple hater, is that "an overpriced piece of crap"? I think it literally has to be.
When some people look the picture below (I took at the pump this week) they might be happy. Perhaps even the majority. I'm not. I'm disgusted. I think fossil fuels should be expensive, or at the very least we should have a system in place to stop the price dropping. Why? Because people are stupid. Thinking about their own personal benefit instead of the future of the planet, which is ironically is more personally beneficial than saving a few bucks today. If that´s not stupid I don't know what is.
We need oil prices to be high. People don't care about working to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel unless it hits them in the pocket. Yes, there was even a part of me that was happy about how cheap it was, but a bigger part of me knew what this means and just thought: This. Is. Shit.
Here's hoping more companies follow #teslamotors and say "enough is enough, there is only one way forward - environmentally conscious transport" (my quote not theirs). Anything else is just soiling our own nest.
Ok, I do a bit of fitness, not as much as I should, but I try. Running wasn't really my thing but after I got into it and now I can't imagine not doing it. I would't want to compete with these guys, I don't even know if I'd complete the course! But I would love the chance to just try, I wonder if there is a ski jump slope anywhere in Spain (where I live) that I can go to. Anyway, while I'm googling ski jump slopes to run up, you can watch the action in this this video:
