There is much more involved in creating a quality video than having a shiny camera and knowing what buttons to push in your video editing software. Video editing is a craft that if not pursued with a level of efficiency can become time consuming and frustrating, when it should be enjoyable and rewarding. The purpose of this session will be to provide GOLD students with an introduction to many of the facets involved in capturing, editing, and exporting video. At the end of your time in this session you will have a basic familiarity with the workflow, challenges, and skills necessary to complete a quality video project.

Stop by Milne Library and look behind the glass of the CIT HelpDesk. There you will find two 3D printers hard at work
creating three-dimensional objects of all sorts. 3D printing is a process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file using a wide range of material like plastic, metal, and ceramics. A 3D printer lays down layer upon layer of material until the object is created.
You can design your own 3D objects using software on the Geneseo lab computers or find ready-to-print STL files on 3D community websites like thingiverse.com and youmagine.com. Many community members on these sites share their designs under a Creative Commons license, so you can use, alter, and print the designs.
The printing cost is based on the weight of the 3D object after it is printed. The cost is 4 cents per gram with a 50-cent service charge and there is a rainbow of colors to choose from.
Geneseo is running a new three-credit experimental course this semester entitled Intro to 3D Modeling and Printing.
