Quick start guide
« on: 2018 September 03 00:51:42 »
Hello,

Anyone here who knows of a basic quick-start guide to PI? Something alike would help me in a workshop. Videos are not very helpful in that situation. A sort of a sheet (or two) of condensed basic info about PI's UI (Load/save file, process concept, process execution icons, previews, linear versus nonlinear image data) could help a lot. Info about specific processes is not required as this will the main part of the workshop.

Thank you for your support.

I have found this site to be exceptionally well written and informative:

No doubt the author is on this forum.

Hi all

Thanks for your support - and sorry for my late answer.

The workshop has been taken place - without me - as we had some differences in the team...

About learning PI: I personally did by watching some of Harry's videos. If you're on your own - that's a good way. What lacks is the possibility of going back later and looking for this value or the other option - one does not get a reference with tutorials. This said - I do know how much work it is to write documentation - I am in the business of software development. Believe me - every developer hates writing doc...  ;) Just while writing this - let me put the following question/remark in the room: Why is Juan not simply collecting/putting his posts about PI features together, creating an index with a word processor and we all would have at least a sort of reference. Hist posts are excellent.
