Springville, CA, September 10, 2009 – TEDCF Publishing, a leading Autodesk Authorized Publisher of interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of Autodesk Inventor 2010: Inventor Studio.
The course shows you how to render fully developed images, and how to make outstanding animations of your parts and assemblies. Watch as author David Melvin, PE shows tips and techniques that go beyond the commands.
The Inventor Studio 2010 course explores the details of using all the commands in the Inventor Studio environment. Step-by-step instruction is provided in short video lessons that you watch on your computer. Each lesson builds on skills you’ve learned from previous lessons, so you progressively build a strong foundation of skills.
While you watch the course you’ll learn the fundamentals of lighting, surface styles, rendering images, and producing animations. As your skills develop you’ll learn advanced concepts like using paths to animate cameras and lights. You’ll learn how to create surface styles from pictures of actual surfaces, and you’ll learn how to morph parts by animating parameters. By the end of the course you’ll know how to create full-length productions and outstanding images.

“Our customers have been requesting an Inventor Studio course for quite some time.” said David Melvin, PE, author of the course. “Now that Autodesk enhanced the Inventor Studio environment, we just couldn’t pass it up this year. You can animate everything from part parameters to cameras, lights, and components. Once you’ve created a few animations, you can splice them together to produce a full-length video. It’s an amazing marketing tool, and it helps communicate concepts to others. I really enjoyed creating this course.”
