Eclipse Automatic: Part 1 - AutoMagic
Presenter: Keith Vincent
Recording: Yes, Immediate
You've probably heard this by now. "AutoMagic" is a big breakthrough, a truly transformational feature introduced in Version 5 of Total Eclipse. Breakthrough, you say? Transformational? The natural response is to ask, "What is it and what will it do for me?" Will it make me richer and thinner, because you can't be "too" either of those. Will it make me soar like an eagle, shine like a full moon, roll like a rock star?
Not exactly. Sometimes you just need to use certain features in order to appreciate how truly revolutionary they are. But unless you start using it, and using it the right way, you'll never know. So while it may not make you richer, thinner, or shinier, we do know that this thought will hit you: Why would I ever NOT want to take advantage of AutoMagic?
It's like having a GPS built into Eclipse. Wherever you are, it knows what you're doing and suggests the ten most likely things you may need to do next. Well, we certainly don't want such great help to go to waste, which is why we're focusing on what AutoMagic can do for you.
In this webinar Keith will show just how active AutoMagic is and how it can help you edit faster and better. Topics include:
