Free Art Books online - resources for artists Freehand Drawing This free book serves as a manual to teachers and students alike. Anson Cross has created this book on the premise that all ideas and sentiments are based on natural objects, and that a person who cannot represent what they see, is unable to express the simplest of conceptions. Light and Shade This is a book exploring the principals of light and shade. An understanding of how to model form and the principals of light and shadow in basic geometric forms, lends itself to advanced drawing and painting whether painting the human figure, landscape or even works of abstract.

Understanding Merit to Optimize Playback - andy vt's blog I’m going to assume some familiarity with DirectShow and how it works, but if miss that mark and don’t explain something that isn’t common knowledge please let me know and I’ll dig into it further. There is a ton of really good information about DirectShow on MSDN and other places, so I don’t want to spend too much time explaining topics that have already been covered. DirectShow uses graphs (where the graph in GraphEdit comes from) to control playback, applications add filters to the graph to actually render the content. Filters do all the work in a graph; extracting data from the container (mkv, asf, dvr-ms, etc), decoding it, and rendering it. They can do much more complex things, but in a simple playback graph that’s pretty much all there is too it. When an application builds the playback graph, it can explicitly add all the filters, rely completely on DirectShow’s Intelligent Connect (IC) feature, or a little of both. Simply, merit is a number.
