  1. Has anyone else had trouble unraring the bonus / supplement files ? Downloaded both parts and it opens to another (smaller) rar file. When clicking on that, The Unarchiver just says the file is incomplete.

    The file for this is much larger than the one offered in the other older Pratt course: Does this have more material than that one?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  2. Hello strawberry. How are you?

    Please can you tell me which software you use to download the videos on New Masters Academy? I tried several but was unsuccessful with most, and the ones that worked left crashes and audio out of sync.

    If you don’t want to respond here, you can leave a reply to my email: be###
