Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise Files, part of Entertainment Creation Suite: Getting Started with Toxik.
Now, if you're a lynda.com premium subscriber, you'll have the exercise files that go along with this course. Now, this particular course has two sets of exercise files. One is called Exercise Files 64-Bit. The other is called Exercise Files 32-Bit. Now we did this because of MatchMover. If you're using the 64-bit version of MatchMover, download the 64-bit exercise files. If you're using the 32-bit version, download the 32-bit version of the exercise files.
And regardless of which one you've downloaded, go ahead and place it on the desktop. And then when I tell you go into the exercise files folder, just go into the one that you've downloaded. Once you're in the exercise files folder you'll notice we have one folder for each chapter, and that contains the assets that you'll need for that particular chapter. So if you're using the exercise files go ahead and download those now and place them on your desktop. There may also be a situation where Toxik might not be able to find your image files.
So, for example, if we open one of our exercise files, go to the desktop and, for example, go to chapter four. And we select CityShot, one of the things that may happen is that some of these will show up with red x's. All we have to do with these is just reconnect them. For example with this one, notice here in the path, what the name of the file is. It's Robot/Robot_City. So all we have to do is just reload this file. Click here, and again, just go my desktop > Exercise files, that same chapter, and this one is called Robot.
So double-click on that, and select that. You'll notice how that asset comes in. And then we're going to have to do that for each asset. So this one is called Shadow. So again, we're just going to go to our desktop. The same chapter. Find the shadow folder, and load that. And then also one for City_Shot, which we can find here, and we can just open that. So once we have all of those together you can see how we have that final output.
So with each of these, it depends on how you set up your desktop, but you may have to actually go and reload the files into the application. With that in mind, let's go ahead and get started.
