    Seems that NAM 31 is going to be a BIG package.

    It's been over a year since the last NAM came out so there's going to be a ton of new content packed in there. In addition, the fact that this is going to be the first monolithic NAM means means that it would be a big package even if no new content was added :P

    I have always found the RHW to be a bit of a pig to get used too, I eventually abandoned using it as it just didn't come naturally for me. However it looks like this update has improved things considerably and made it a lot more accessible for newcomers so I'm really looking forward to this :-).

    Looks great.

    Maarten, a few suggestions. You should make a script and a story board for these little demos. It was quite disjointed overall, and a little planning would save some time. Also, please try to speak more distinctly. I do apprecitate this was made on-the-fly, but I think a little deliberation would help a great deal.

    This is why PS also has a Manual.

    If you wanted, I wouldn't mind do the narration aspect of the video. I have a mic with excellent quality and have experience with narration in the context of several school and personal projects.

    Problem is, it takes a NAM Team Member to do that, simply because we know everything that's going on and how it works.

    Additionally, the fact that NAMites do this also means they've played with the NAM enough that they know how to get a feel for how things work, and that they can best describe how it feels like to newcomers.

    Besides, NAM 31 has something that no past version ever had before: Comprehensive user's manuals. It'll have everything and more: Tutorials, how-to's, and overviews on how the little things in the NAM work.

    Well, I was trying to be constructive. Referring to an unpublised manual is a cop-out. Ad hoc "demonstrations" need to be a little better than this one. For one, you get the grunt cup.

    This looks like it will be easier to use but still glad I have persevered through 30 to learn most of the workings it has to offer. Makes me appreciate the upcoming improvements! Thanks.

    Maarten, you and the others on the NAM team do exceptionally fine work, but it doesn't show on demos like that. Please in future try relaxing and thinking it through. Just write yourself a little script.
