C'mon RL - 

I recently upgraded to CT4.2 from 3.3 and while some features are the same, there
is enough key differences, that you really should UPDATE / MAKE CURRENT your
offered tutorials. 

One small example  -  there is a tutorial that is labeled:
CrazyTalk Animator 3.1 Pipeline Tutorial - Basic Free Bone Character Creation
(and another that deals with Photoshop handshaking for animation/sprite creation).

It is at a minimum 1 version and 3 updates behind - it mentions features / instructions
and processes that do not apply to 4.2. VERY FRUSTRATING. When following along
the RL Tutorials, just to realize - the RL Tutorial is in essence, obsolete (unless you
are still using the previous CTA3 version). (Wasted a morning - reviewing the offered
tutorials, just to find out, some or most of the content explained has changed.

Your support staff - needs to give some attention to the tutorial section of your web site.

Also when recording your tutorials, the image / video quality on some are sub-standard,
even at full screen resolution. Very Blurry - even with a high-end Nvidia graphics card.
And before you ask - it is not on this end - other sites / videos display very clean at
HD or 4K - no problem.

Thank you for the feedback. I will pass this on to the CTA team. Hopefully, we can update the basic tutorials to be fully compatible with the differences in CTA4.

Also when recording your tutorials, the image / video quality on some are sub-standard,
even at full screen resolution. Very Blurry - even with a high-end Nvidia graphics card.

All our tutorials are either in 720p or 1080p so the quality should be very good. It may be your YouTube settings are defaulting to a lower quality setting like 480p. When you play any tutorial try going into the Settings on the YouTube play bar and ensure you are using the highest setting.

UPDATE:

After checking the points you raised with this video, the CTA team did see two issues:

1. (01:04) After creating the Character, it didn't load into composer which is a bug. We'll fix this issue in the future patch.
For now you will need to select the character and click the "Composer" button to enter the Composer mode, then follow the tutorial's instruction.

2. (01:20) When user imports an image to Composer the image bind in Root.  This is the new spec of CTA 4, but doesn't affect the operating flow.

To try to avoid confusion, we'll add a note in the YouTube description.
