(Note: The size of the image in these free sample movies is much smaller than that of the full version on the DVD, so the text in some UI items in the free sample videos is sometimes hard to read. Also, the free sample videos don’t include the source files that are included with the DVD, so you’ll need to use your own assets to follow along.)Share on Facebook
