You can download the videos as well as watch online (I believe, I haven't tried but it says "Download Video Training" so I assume this is the download of everything).

Yes!. We finished it tonight. It's really useful and helpful. I certainly walked away with techniques i'll be able to apply immedately. I was very impressed and the kicker is, they are fast as hell. You figure with someone like Calvin Hollywood, all his techniques are going to take like 20-30 minutes.

He did it right, he showed you the fast way, and the long way (if time permits) i was very impressed with the layout.

Two thumbs up.

Re: Calvinize...

Has anyone else experienced choppy video/audio playback? I tend to keep a lot of firefox windows open, some with other flash components running. It seemed like if I tried to follow along in Photoshop with the DVD playing (from the download, not over the web), it would get choppy and break up.

Quad-core Mac Pro 2.66 w/ 6GB RAM.

Ok go easy on me, i'm still learning...

Before:

After:

I don't need to use any hdr looking tools anymore. Learning what Calvin did is really going to change some things in my workflow. Overlay with large soft white sources to act as spotlights is huge...

Re: Calvinize...

I like what you've done with it. There's a bit too much noise in the darkest areas for my taste, like in the suit pants etc... I think if you had a better base exposure you could avoid that next time.
