This Carrara Information Manual is quite a piece of work, Dartanbeck. Have you considered formalizing it somewhat? It might make it more accessible.
As a matter of fact, I think of that every time I use it - which is quite often! It took a lot of time to get it to where it is now, which has gone through many changes - but it seems to even take longer to edit - but, yes. I will be working on it again fairly soon. The most often adjustments that I make are updating the list in the Forum Help Links post, and lately trying to get stuff updated from the beta version of 8.5 to the new release. We are now hitting that time of year when I can start getting busy on this again. Although I reserve the right to do it how I feel that I like it to be, I certainly welcome (and appreciate) any advice you (or anybody else) have on this subject. Of course, the long the strategy might take, the less likely it will be that I implement it - but, then again, you never know… I do want this to end up looking and working very smoothly - hence the in-thread links to other places within the thread to assist in navigation.
Your input is most welcome on this
Also, I’m glad you like it. I use it constantly to help save me from having to type the same things over again. Also whenever I need to look up plugin information, or get links to their sites, I enjoy using the Carrara Plugins FAQ & Information - By Jay_NOLA post. It all started off as a thought towards making a consolidated Index for Cripeman’s Carrara Video Tutorials, so I asked his permission to do so. As I began putting it together, but before submitting the new post, I realized that I really wanted to do a lot more with this single thread. Turn it into an encyclopedia of Carrara topics using both links and writings of my own thoughts. Of course, like the plugins FAQ by JAY_NOLA, I welcome others to write in here, too. If it is relevant to my goal for this thread, I’ll link it up to the main table of contents.
Sometimes it gets to a point where I have a lot of things to add. This is how it ends up getting less organized and more haphazard looking - because I really just drop in the links and thoughts and go - hoping to come back and organize it later. Some of the clean up process has been taking place, but not as much as I’d like. Soon, perhaps.
