IPTC core information in bridge
show user profile  9krausec
Just wondering if any of you folks use IPTC core stuff in bridge (meta data n' stuff)..

I don't really do it, but I am unsure about how it transfers to Jpegs and if it is even necessary to use bridge to fill out data fields in a jpeg.

I failed a college course just because I didn't punch in the IPTC core info. The prof doesn't seem to really know what she is talking about, so when she says IPTC core info is soooo important, I question her (I don't know if she is right or wrong on this because I never had any experience with IPTC core info in bridge)..

Can anyone give me their two cents?

*holds nose*

another thread about yukky jpgs.

tell her you didn't do that because IPTC is legacy and has been superceded by XMP.

Good info, AS.

We used to carefully catalog images where I work. Tagging them all, etc. We've kind of given up doing it, as it adds so much time to creation when our products typically have several hundred images, and we have thousands of products.

could use XMP to define a 3D scene that holds the image. mad but you could do it :)

thx AS...

Good to know a little bit more about it.

She's a little bit off if you ask me. One of those power play people (but I guess when it comes down to it a student needs to learn to jump through hoops of stupidity for other people because in the end, that's what I'll be doing in the real world).

took some stellar (in my opinion, first time with HDR photography) of my pa's jeep to show "story telling"... She said it was "moderate" in strength as far as story goes..

Don't know how it gets much stronger than a dirty jeep, with no to little lead room to show a muddy trail behind it that it was once on...

Seriously... Lame Ass... pfft.

Lol, "jumping through the hoops of stupidity" is one of those things we all have to learn to do!

exactly... I agree, I just hate it, but I am learning to accept it slowly (only 21, so much to learn). Doesn't pay to get upset about stupidity because it's going to happen regardless...

Often, you allow the idiot to talk, then do pretty much what you were going to to anyway. It's just one of those things you have to learn to balance.

Of course, sometimes you have to do what somebody who has no idea about the subject wants you to do. But, at least you can blame it on them.

one other thing you learn is (in general) profs are profs because they couldn't handle the real world.

those who can do, those who can't stay in a university.

doesn't apply to everyone of course.

haha, good point!

One thing that I know is going to bug the hell out of me is a CG class I have next semester..

I go to a University that is not specialty at all... Just going for 4 years to get the BA degree and trying to do as much 3d on the side because that is what I want to go into as far as a career.

My prototype professor has taught a few semesters of Blender apparently.. I talked to him about the 3d class and was initially super excited that he was going to move to Maya... But then he told me he planned to learn Maya in a month over break, and then I got sort of frustrated...

A month to learn Maya, and then teach it to a class.. Unless this guy is crazy awesome (he was an ass hole in my prototyping class), I really don't think a month is enough time to learn Maya to teach it to a class when that person only had a few semesters of Blender under his belt...

Well, I'm correcting his theory to my fullest ability during the class... My last prof that I had here that tried to teach 3ds didn't even know how to flip normals and just told the class to put a 2 sided material on everything..

I laughed.

to be fair to the guy - he's figured out how to use blender.

that's quite an achievement :)

did he though? I wasn't in his class at all, so I don't know. Like I said, there is a chance that he is a wizz at this stuff, I am open minded to possibilities.

and YES learning blender is a achievement in itself... I don't even want to think how challenging it would be to learn that tool set... AS, do you know if it's getting any more intuitive as far as keeping pace with Max, Maya and LW and C4D sort of stuff?

haven't tried it for a while. some have done good work with it but the last time I tried it (maybe 3-4 months ago) it still felt clunky & the viewport shaders were incomplete. still, it's free so you can't really complain.
