DONOVAN'S ROUX TUTORIAL
Hiya guys and gals.
I've been working on a Roux tutorial, and have uploaded it to my website.
I decided to go about recognition a few different ways compared to conventional tutorials.
So far I have a Video page, and a CMLL page with algorithms for each of the 42 cases.
On the videos page I use a partially stickered cube, as to highlight the exact pieces you're looking for. I found this pretty helpful in not being distracted with all of the other stickered pieces on the cube. So basically, when you watch the first video that covers the first block, only the first block pieces are stickered, and the rest of the cube is blank.
On the CMLL page, I show exactly what the corners need to look like, and I think it helps recognizing patterns with an image of a cube rather than arrows on a graph. I also show all 4 possible colors you'd expect to see for each orientation on each case. (This is providing your top color is yellow.)
Here is a quick preview of what some of the cases look like:
(J Perm) (H Case) (U Case) (Bruno) (T Case) (L Case) (Sune) (Anti-Sune) (Y Perm)
I've worked really hard on the site, graphics, and algorithms. If you see any mistakes (such as an algorithm that doesn't work) please let me know.
Also, I do have some ideas on more content that I'll be adding in the future, but I'm always happy to have ideas on where you think I can improve the tutorial.
Here are the links to the YouTube videos titled "Donovan's Roux Tutorial". Enjoy.
