I'd be glad to help, if I can. What are you trying to do?

Those video's are so exciting they put you to sleep. You have to set up two computers. One playing the video, and another to work along with it. If you build the projects along with the video's, it will sink in. Pause or replay the video as needed.

I agree with Ken. The only way to get acting from those videos other than a nap is to follow along.

They are super instructional and useful though if you follow along and learn from them.

The best learning is from trying. Start with a project. Make a mistake. Find the help files. Ask questions here and on the Vectric forum. Remember there are always at least three different ways to solve a problem.
