  1. Wait a minute... Excuse my supreme ignorance ...artist, not so versed in hardware, only in what I see my tasks do better (ie, lots of RAM for heavy load in photoshop, fast single core in that one, many cores in Blender, good 8GB VRAM card in Davinci, etc). But is 4x8 still dual channel ? I have read everywhere that for Ryzen is gotta be dual channel. I am going (planning a rig) for a 3900X, 3200mhz CL16 memory, 2060 S 8Gb or 1660 S (the latter for replacing and selling in October... The former to keep it. Depending on final budget and/or getting or not certain set of gigs for Davinci). And dun
  2. Is rare that I fully agree with 2 consecutive posts of two different people... but is the case. @Cebrano Yes, the Affinity suite (3 apps) for a lot of people does the deal of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. It is true that does not have (yet) all the features, that has corners to polish, and that being the company staff and money & resources of Serif, what, like 20 or 1000 times smaller than Adobe's, the progress is very slow (some features addition can take years since the moment of considering the possibility of adding them..like happens in open source (low, money, s
  3. never ever cleaned one of those until only vertical or horizontal movement would happen...
  4. At blender.org are very good ones. Is where I'd start if I was beginning at it now. (and of course, the download of the app is there, too) But IMO, is great for 3D (is my tool for work, for all my 3D), and while has a video editor inside, quite capable, my (2c) recommendations would be (of course, you can use Blender video editor/composer if you find that you prefer it to the below, but please try everything at start, to decide. Davinci seems to me very professional in everything) : Davinci Resolve as a video editor. And Davinci Fusion as an app that makes stuff of the kin
  5. I like simplicity , I just use the following (it doesn't fail me) : https://freealarmclocksoftware.com I believe the volume in the app overrides Windows volume value, meaning you should probably only handle the volume for what is the alarm in the app. I have detected that if it notices other audio is playing in the machine, it will fade out to silence until you stop that music or whatever, so to not make the alarm sound over the music, movie or whatever.
  6. Also, if you love command line, probably imagemagik. In Photoshop, you can make "Actions" (kindda macros) and apply that action to entire folders through the batch processing utility. You have also batch converters which can apply modifications (haven't tried that task you mention, tho) , and my favorite ones in that are irfanview and XnView MP or their standalone converter. This is, in case you want to do it in batch mode, for a bunch of files. If you need a server app doing it or to pipe it to an app working locally to make certain workflow, without user interaction, then the way to go is im

  10. And take responsibility, deal well with pressure, and provide always, tho that goes implicit in the "work ethic" mention. Haha. That's probably one of the most wanted skills in my profile... they wouldn't need to look further in my career ?. Prolly if I'd write like that to HRs in the letter, they'd be able to imagine how beautiful my spaghetti code would be, full of redundant and nested loops... Luckily for the universe, I don't code (last time I mentioned HTML/CSS as 'coding', provoked an eyebrow strain to certain someone).
  11. Actually... Is not the usual thing, but sometimes one gets contracted if the sum of skills on a number of matters is fine even if not covering everything required (BTW, in the LTT graphic design offer, what is requested is very spot-on, and no nonsense there, but in MANY companies' job offers it is requested way too many things, also from other profiles (like coding in python to a graphic designer, or asking a coder to be able to model in 3D, that's stupidity, but happens), so, one needs not to be scared of that), or even just if specially excel in one matter, even if not covering a bunch of o
  12. I cover all those points and way more, and still, even if having a work permit, and more importantly, desire to move to Canada (great country, I just like my own and its 114 º F , lol) I would not be able to work there. Because it seems that every worker there needs to kind of be comfortable in front of the camera, be funny and all. I don't know... I could say I find ONE person like that (btw, I found her funny and smart) per every 30 or 35 colleagues in the nerd world that is IT. For some reason, it's more often found among graphics/audio people (in my experience at least) than coders and sys

  14. Working in design, graphics, I need smooth edges on screen fonts. I set that one and having desktop composition, show thumbnails instead of icons (for browsing image folders), and use visual styles on windows and buttons. Those 4 and nothing more. Nothing missed for actual graphic work, and no performance loss. And I should notice more than anyone, super old and under powered work PC here, every bit asked to the machine is amplified compared to other people's PCs. I need to optimize every bit (am on Windows 7 yet).
  15. some people also set the pagefile at a different disk, some even (despite the crazy amount of writes) an ssd for that. I haven't tried that. Photoshop uses that a lot, too. I have it always on, usually at 12 GB, and maximum /minimum at same number.
