I dont use a MAC and didnt realize, but should have guessed, they would use something different from the PC crowd.

Thanks for clearing that up.
In responce to Stephen Curry's comments below...
by Ron Lindeboom
Stephen, have you used a Mac long? SIT files are BY FAR historically the most popular compressed format on the platform. Stands for StuffIt. StuffIt Expander is available for both Mac and PC and it is a VERY common format among those who work in the creative fields, where Macs are quite common.

SIT is FAR more commonplace than .rar files and while Zip is quickly replacing SIT on the Mac because of built-in support for it in the MacOS today, learn to live with it or don't.

What's that they say about not looking a gift horse in the mouth? -- and that at free it's worth twice the price.

Nice but....
by Stephen Curry
Good job on the tutorial but Im disappointed in the fact that you used some obscure compress utility for the project files.

Im not going to install yet another compression file format.

Please use a common compression format like .zip or .rar

thanks

An Editor's Epic Journey, by Katie Toomey

What do you do when your company folds and there's no local work? Whatever you have to. For Katie Toomey, that meant emptying her savings and heading 2000 miles west to Los Angeles, with no job in hand. The only options were make it or break it. The journey itself was difficult, but the hardest part may have been the only thing that made it all possible: asking for help. This is a truly inspiring story with tons of real-world examples of how to accomplish what feels impossible at the time.
