Ok, it's been a while, so let's start over again. I'm hoping to make this useful for artists, illustrators, designers, animators, etc. working with technology and the current set of tools out there. I don't claim to be an expert in all of these tools, but I have a pretty good understanding of the ideas and technologies behind them. I want to share that, because I think understanding what the tools are doing makes it easier to use the tools. I don't just mean which menu has Gaussian blur, but what is Gaussian blur. (I'll get to that.)
Some of the stuff discussed in earlier posts will reappear, in friendlier form, but I'm really hoping for comments and questions. That will drive the content.
