Customer Reviews

Videos in paid version are not working

I bought this hoping I can get further instruction in animation, and the videos do not play so I can't hear or see what the instructor is saying.

Videos don't play

The videos don't play on the complete version of the book (on ipad air 2 IOS10), but the do play on the sample version of the book. Please fix this issue

Videos fixed

Originally, I wrote a review giving 3 stars because the videos were broken... Shortly after the videos were fixed.. so either they updated the book or it, just for some reason, started working by itself? Anyway, really good book.
