:Apogee Impose Basic Tutorial

About this basic tutorial

The :Apogee Impose Tutorial is a self-paced guide to using the product's features within your workflow. It is comprised of 15 lessons, each one building on the next. For example, your first lesson (included in the sample file) steps you through the creation of a simple job using resources currently available in your system. It concludes with the creation of a job using the Auto Impose feature.

In the first section of the :Apogee Impose web instruction, we introduced you to the concepts of both Auto Impose and Manual Imposition, through both video (to see it work!) and descriptive screen shots. The next three lessons covered Terminology, Navigation & Interaction, and an Overview of Defining Resources.

To help guide you through this tutorial, we've created several video vignettes. They are divided into lesson groupings. Currently we have Tutorial lessons 1-6 complete. As we get more, we'll post them here for your reference.
Each vignette shows a part of the lesson. They're broken down into smaller chunks, so you can view what you need, when you need it.

The first lesson of this tutorial is fully available in the sample file.
