  • They've also got a good tutorial (Windows                 [opens in new window]            ) (macOS                 [opens in new window]            )
  • There's a solid YouTube video on an older version at                 [opens in new window]            -- this runs just over 1 hour long, but will do a good job getting you started with the software.
