Hi!

Nice. You're one of the first to react! :)
Most of the screenshots are too bright, something I am disappointed of as well. It's something the printer should have done better, but remains something I cannot blame anyone else for than myself.

Currently I'm checking on the possibility to print a second edition really quickly. Nevertheless, I am incredible happy the book is out, it remains an extraordinary accomplishment of everyone who cooperated on it!

I got it too, lovely movies on the cd, although a higher quality would have been nice. One problem though, the index.html on the cd doesn't work right. It loads well, but when I click on the thumbnails nothing happens.

Oh!

Which Browser are you using? It worked fine on our test machines...
dotblend, do you have the same problem?

For resolution of the animation, well, it is the resolution the Artists provided us with :)

We tested on Mac OSX, linux and windows...
I also asked for extensive virus checking this time! But no clue why Mac OS9 doesnt like it. Not really a Blender platform, eh? :)

i'm not really sure its a printer problem, probably someone misadjusted most of the images. because some images are good and some are not...
