Nice effect. I've used Photoshop for years, and Inkscape/SVG is foreign territory for me, so tutorials like these are a huge help. Thanks!

That's a really nice tutorial, which shows the power of Inkscape very well. I didn't know about the dynamic shift. I will try to use it in my next project... ...a lost and found office.

Thanks a lot: Martin

I really liked the tutorial. It was nicely paced, the right length, and I like how you did it again quickly at the end. Also, the tip on using Dynamic Offset makes this tutorial far superior to others I've seen. Keep up the good work, I'll be looking for more.

Terrific demonstration! So much better for me to see something done rather than to rely solely upon printed directions. I will look for more of your Inkscape lessons. Thank you!

Thanx for that

Very good tutorials, would not have thought it was as easy as that, great!

I have watched this video several times, and learn something new each time. It seems so simple, yet so elegant. I have definitely learned more from following your videos than reading the Inkscape manual.



Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for rfquerin-heathenx
