Session Name: The Make Art Button: Batches, Actions, and Scripts
Speaker(s): Adrian Woods, Adrian Woods, Adrian Woods, Adrian Woods
Company Name(s): , , , Microsoft
Track / Format: Audio
Overview: Do something once, it's creative. Do something twice, it's repetitive. Do something three times, you can probably automate it.

This session gives artists tools they can use to help minimize repetitive tasks and maximize creativity and iteration. Using the dreaded DOS prompt, Photoshop actions and droplets, and MaxScript, the speaker shows how technical ability can actually unleash creativity. For example, you can use MaxScript to enable in-game visuals never seen before. You can use Photoshop actions to speed up production time. And you can use the DOS prompt. Spend less time getting carpal tunnel syndrome, and more time creating beautiful artwork.
