All the videos from Eli Krantzberg are nice. Even though I am using BIAB 2018 this video was very helpful. Some functions moved place, most from menus to buttons. Great video! Thanks, Eli!

Very Accurate - Title is fitting
I recently purchased BIAB 2017 for Mac and was skeptical that a 2014 version would be outdated or not that helpful - I was wrong. Every section that was covered was applicable and with the exception of the periodic different symbol or placement of where to find something everything was spot on and applied. An example was this course didn't explain the new work sheet view that came out for 2017 but that info is pretty self explanatory. If you have a newer version and are looking for a course to help you navigate BIAB this is it. It covers basics, intermediate and some advanced operations. If you get this info under your fingers I would guess you'll be able to figure out the remaining advanced operations. Regarding the course being boring - its not and after all its a technical course. To that point the instructor doesn't dwell on and on about an attribute. The time spent on each topic is well balanced.

I have been away from my BIAB for a while and the course has not only refreshed my memory on how to use the program, but it has also inspired me to get back into my home studio.
