All videos in our 5 Things You Didn't Know You Could Do In DALiM TWiST series are now live on a dedicated channel on Flathead U. This series of videos produced and presented by NAPC Solutions Architect, Scott Tully educates and enlightens users and administrators of DALiM TWiST by illustrating the capabilities of the software as pertains to workflow engineering and graphic arts production.
Each video in the series is a run time of less than three minutes, and is sure to enlighten or remind users that there is always more than one way to get things done. Covering workflows with multiple branches, the PDF concatenation feature, conditional pauses, and the features allowing for translation of a spreadsheet into a run list, this is the ultimate in DALiM TWiST schooling.
WATCH Episode One - "Stick a FORK in it" contrasts the methodolgy of building TWiST workflows with multiple branches versus a linear workflow featuring the TWiST Basic Tool: Fork.
