Additional Information

In preparation for the training, we encourage you to review the following tutorial videos, which can be found on the Ross Video XPression U site.

In addition to the training, each student will receive a one year license to a trial edition of XPression Designer, the offline creation edition of XPression. This version is not capable of outputting live video, but it will render graphics to a pixel accurate watermarked virtual output on your VGA screen. This will allow you to work with XPression at home to continue learning XPression after the class is done.
