video 01 : postcards

macgrunt is all about workflow optimisation, with an emphasis on automation, particularly applescript. in a few days you’ll see the first InDesign scripting lesson. these lessons are intended to get you up and running — even if you’ve never contemplated scripting previously.

why should you bother with this rubbish?

postcards is a quick animation which shows an actual script performing a real-life task in a fraction of the time it would take a real-life human. the animation is built from screen grabs from the actual workflow — so that dialog box at the end showing how long the script took to do the job is real and accurate (testing was done with CS2 on a G5 PowerPC running OSX 10.5.7).

if that doesn’t convince you to start learning, stay tuned, more to follow.
