微軟應該驕傲的技術Live SkyDrive、Sync、Mesh

最近因為需要同步,被FB的Juan Yao Feng提醒忘了很久的Live Sync
上網又意外發現Live Mesh Beta,跨平台線上同步!!
以下是微軟旗下同步機制~這也是目前Google還沒開發的市場~

Live SkyDrive

無法顯示錯誤的圖片「http://blogs.msdn.com/blogfiles/jim_glass/WindowsLiveWriter/WindowsLiveSkyDriveupdated_81D6/skydrive.jpg」

  • 25GB的線上容量,Free!!
  • 上傳單檔不可大於50MB的!!
  • 無法上傳資料夾,你得在SkyDrive線上新增
  • 相片的中繼資料會完全清除(例如:照片的GPS資料)

Live Sync

Live Mesh Beta

http://pdathoughts.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/microsoft_live_mesh.jpg

  • 啟用服務會產生一個線上桌面,容量為5GB!!
  • 可跨平台同步分享傳輸!!

如同軟體玩家的10F留言者 陸仁甲 所說:

Skydrive、Live Sync、Live Mesh是三個不同層級的服務。Skydrive著重分享,可以分享給陌生人;Live Sync著重同步,可以同步每台電腦的特定資料;Live Mesh著重管理,跨PC與MAC平台一次管理諸多裝置。
如果你只有一台電腦,SkyDrive最適合你;如果你是家裡公司都有電腦的,Live Sync很適合你;如果你擁有多部裝置,甚至跨平台的使用者,Live Mesh你可以考慮看看。

既然介紹都被他說完了,我就不多說什麼了~哈!!

微軟推出網路硬碟SkyDrive服務~5GB啊!! @ 梁董的吧台後 :: 痞客邦 PIXNET ::
Windows Live Sync Wave3 已经推出 Windows 和 Mac 版下载(更新) | LiveSino – LiveSide 中文版
Live Mesh tech preview « PDA Thoughts

Max的Reset Xform官方說明文件翻譯

 Reset XForm Utility
重置XForm工具

Use the Reset XForm (Transform) utility to push object rotation and scaling values onto the modifier stack and align object pivot points and bounding boxes with the World coordinate system. Reset XForm removes all Rotation and Scale values from selected objects and places those transforms in an XForm modifier.
使用重置的XForm(變形)工具面板將會推擠物件的旋轉和縮放值到編輯修改器堆疊中,物件的中心點和邊界箱對齊世界坐標系統。重置的XForm在選定的物件和位置的變形中移除所有旋轉和縮放值在XForm編輯修改器。

To reset the transform of a group, use the Transform button in the Reset group box of the Hierarchy > Pivot command panel.
想要重置變形群組,使用重置群組盒的層級>中心點控制面板中的變形按鈕。

Procedures
流程

To reset an object's transform:
對重置物件的變形:

  1. Select an object.
    選擇一個物件。
  2. On the Utilities panel, click Reset XForm.
    在工具面板中,點擊重置XForm。
  3. On the Utilities panel > Utilities rollout, click the More button and choose Reset XForm.
    在工具面板>面板滑鼠往下滾,點擊更多按鈕,然後選擇重置的XForm。(基本上Max2009已經拿到表層了)
  4. On the Reset Transform rollout, click Reset Selected.
    在重置變形運作,點擊重置選定。
    Object rotation and scaling are now carried by an XForm modifier placed at the top of the modifier stack. 
    現在物件的旋轉和縮放由一個XForm修改器放置在修改器堆疊頂部。

    When you apply the Reset Transform utility, an XForm modifier that carries the rotation and scale values is placed at the top of the Modifier Stack display. You can apply other modifiers above and below the XForm modifier. You can select the XForm modifier and add other Move, Rotate, and Scale transforms. You can delete the XForm modifier to completely remove the transforms from the object. You can collapse the object to absorb the rotation and scale values into the object mesh.
    當您使用重置變形工具,一個XForm修改器承載旋轉和縮放的值放在修改器堆疊頂部顯示。你可以使用其他修改器在XForm修改器上面和下面。您可以選擇的XForm修改器,並添加其他移動,旋轉和縮放變形。您可以刪除的XForm修改器於完全移除變形的物件。您可以折疊物件去吸收旋轉和縮放的值為物件網格。

Interface
介面

Reset Xform

Reset selected
重設選定

Removes all Rotation and Scale values from selected objects and places those transforms in an XForm modifier.
在選定的對象和位置的變形中XForm修改器移除所有旋轉和縮放的值 。

簡單來說,Reset Xform的用處應該是在於類似記憶點的玩意~
記憶了旋轉跟縮放的數值的工具,一個物件在編修面板可以有
很多記憶點,當然也可以直接轉Poly合併成一個物件。
不過還是不請出為什麼有些論壇討論說建模完要Reset Xform
,推測應該是保護模型用的。

翻譯那麼多官方文件廢話,我還是不懂,於是我找到一個豁然開朗的影片!
看完你就會完全了解Reset Xform的功用啦~~真是文字很難解釋的功能!!

小技巧:

Is there any way to know what stats my hero will need for an adventure?
有什麼辦法知道冒險途中有哪些狀態是需要注意的?

Yes and no. Most encounters in an adventure are random, so you can't know exactly what is coming ahead of time. You can guess, however. Each type of terrain has two stats that appear more often than the others. If you are heading off into the Swamp, for example, you might wish to consider a Charisma or Intelligence potion, as it has the greatest chance of helping your hero. Potions last for several encounters, so there is more than one chance for them to be effective. Here is the list of which stats are most common in each terrain type:
說是也是說不是也不是。大多數遭遇到的冒險都是隨機的,所以你無法確切地知道會遇到什麼。你可以猜測,但是。每一種類型的地形有兩個狀態出現的頻率比其他高。例如如果你是前往沼澤(Swamp),您不妨考慮Charisma或智力(Intelligence)藥水,因為它最有機會幫助你的英雄。藥劑持續數相遇,因此有一個以上的機會,他們是有效的。這裡清單中最常見的統計資料,在每個地形類型:

  • Castle: Armor Class, Wisdom
    城堡:防禦,智慧
  • Dungeon: Attack, Intelligence
    地牢:攻擊,智力
  • Forest: Attack, Armor Class
    森林:攻擊,防禦
  • Graveyard: Charisma, Strength
    墓地:魅力,強度
  • Lake: Constitution, Wisdom
    湖泊:體質,智慧
  • Mountain: Dexterity, Strength
    高山:敏捷,強度
  • Swamp: Charisma, Intelligence
    沼澤:魅力,智慧
  • Temple: Constitution, Dexterity
    寺廟:體質,敏捷

In addition, each adventure has certain encounters that are the same every time. This always includes the final encounter in the adventure. If you've played the adventure before you will know how many encounters are in it and what ability will be checked on the final encounter.
此外,每次冒險有一定的遭遇是每一次都相同的。這總是包括最後的冒險遭遇。如果你玩過之前的冒險你會知道有多少遭遇也和能力將在最後遇到的問題檢查。

免費影片剪輯軟體 – VideoSpin 2.0

VideoSpin

雖然免費很感恩,不過整體來說還是效能很差,而且文字用淡入淡出會造成影片輸出或者預覽有嚴重問題~
於是只好把淡入淡出移除掉,好讓我貼貼字輸出順利就好,另外假如你用此軟體輸出Youtube或者Yahoo Video,會造成大量的暫存檔!!請清空你的系統槽,光處理50s左右的影片,就吃了2G多的硬碟空間,
真是有夠邀受的!!不過簡單編輯是都還OK啦~~加減用,體整還是低於收費的Adobe Pr or AE的效能~殘念~

以下是我用這套軟體剪輯而成的影片~可以很明顯看出一些缺點~

整體來說是免費的,但是他有影音編解碼限制,需要購買SpinPack,才能
解開15天試用限制。

Will VideoSpin still work after 15 days if I do not purchase the SpinPack?
如果我不購買 SpinPack,15天之後VideoSpin將仍然可使用嗎?

Yes. VideoSpin will still work, but you will not be able to create or edit MPEG-2, MPEG-4/DivX, 3GP, MOV or Dolby Digital 2 Channel files.
可以。 VideoSpin仍然可以使用,但你無法建立或編輯的MPEG - 2,MPEG-4/DivX,3GP,MOV或Dolby Digital  雙通道的檔案。
