The CD-Rom

A CD-ROM is a non-erasable optical disc used to store music files, video files, and computer software. Its storage capacity ranges up to 700 Megabytes or approximately 3,00,000 typewritten pages of information; high-definition pictures and full-motion video may also be stored here. Made out of transparent polycarbonate plastic with a reflective metal layer covering protected by lacquer coating protection, its contents can be read using an Optical Reader.

CD-ROM data is encoded using standard CD data encoding techniques such as eight-to-fourteen modulation and cross-interleaved Reed-Solomon coding, capable of holding up to 74 minutes (roughly 680 Megabytes) of uncompressed audio content stored in 333,000 blocks or sectors on its surface, in spiral tracks starting from its center towards its outer edge and with error detection and correction codes to reduce playback errors.

Philips and Sony developed an integrated audio/video CD-ROM called CD-ROM/XA in 1988. Based on Yellow Book standards for CDs, it adds a mode that permits access to compressed audio/video data simultaneously while serving as a bridge between it and CD-i systems. For best results, special computers equipped with CD-ROM/XA controller cards are required to decode interleaved data streams.

The Case

The Animator’s Survival Kit is an essential guide to crafting vibrant and lifelike characters and provides invaluable tips and techniques for both aspiring animators and industry professionals alike. The book blends an engaging story with step-by-step instructions to guide the creative process, encouraging creativity and unleashing imagination.

Williams’ sold-out master classes in London, Hollywood, New York, and throughout Europe provide fundamental principles every animator – novice or expert, classical or digital, needs to know. Her passion for her craft shows through every line of text or line drawing she produces.

Williams is an expert in his field, having directed animation for such iconic films as Who Framed Roger Rabbit. His knowledge is unsurpassed: breaking down fundamental principles of movement into manageable steps for students to follow before adding his style into each lesson he gives – all the while conveying all this knowledge in an informal yet conversational manner.

This app elevates a globally popular kit by giving users access to unreleased films and over 100 animated examples, all while learning from its creator himself. Support for NTSC TV standards should also work fine – 95% of PAL/SECAM DVD player combinations should work as expected!
