Top 3 Reasons Why Learning Video Editing is Your Next Move

We know what you’re thinking: Why would I ever learn video editing when I can just hire someone off Fiverr to do it for me?

Python Versus: A Look at the Fastest Growing Language

In recent years, Python has exploded to become one of the fastest-growing languages.

Both have their tradeoffs, and here are a few key examples of how Python separates itself from the pack.

Photoshop Tutorial: Intro to Hair Retouching

Hair Selections & the Search for the Holy Grail

Hair Selections & the Search for the Holy Grail Everyone’s looking for the easy path. The internet is filled with so-called experts doling out “tips, tricks, and techniques,” and they may sound like they are the answer, but when you try them on your photos, you just get frustrated because they don’t work. You think there’s something wrong with you or your retouching skills, but maybe that technique only worked on that one photo and background combination! It’s not as easy as learning one tip or technique. Hair is more complex than that. A blonde on a dark background must be treated differently than a blonde on a light background.

Harmful Myths about Learning Data Science

The internet is full of noise about what counts as “real” data science. This genre is generally a waste of time, but for beginners it can be particularly pernicious. If you’re already feeling like a fish out of water, the last thing you need to hear is that you’re a “fake” data scientist. Nothing more demoralizing!

Why Learn the GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP)?

The GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) is a popular set of JavaScript tools for building animations on the web. Anything you see in your web browser can be animated with GSAP. Whether you want to build elegant UI animations or dynamic effects in web apps, games, and interactive stories; GSAP is up to the task.

How does it work? You simply write short snippets of JavaScript code that define how elements should animate and what the timing should be. The benefit of animating with code is that one line of code can animate one thing just as easily as it can animate 1,000 things. With code-driven animation it’s surprisingly easy to randomize your animations and have them respond to user interaction.

GSAP delivers the flexibility and control that professionals need but it’s also easy for beginners to learn, especially with Noble Desktop’s HTML5 Web Animation with GreenSock class. You’ll be amazed at what you can do once you master just a few of the basics. Here are some of the main reasons to learn GSAP:
