Camtasia and the Chipmunks

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Christine Martell has been teaching herself how to screencast and completed her first screencast. What's really impressive is that it made Screencast of the Week over at TechSmith , the makers of the software. Christine was using some of the wonderful how-to videos on the TechSmith site (and I also think my screencasting primer too). The Chipmunks reference is because she encountered a bug with the software that made her recording sound like the Alvin and Chipmunks.

Giveaway: A License for Techsmith's Screencasting Tools - Camtasia and Snagit

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

The good folks at TechSmith have given me a free license for Snagit (screencapture tool) and Camtasia (the screencasting editing and capture suite) to give away to a nonprofit. Two years ago, I got little obsessed with screencasting hoping that more nonprofits would use the tools for training materials or maybe even fundraising. If you travel through my flickrstream , you'll see that I'm addicted to screenshooting - taking stills of the screen. There's no better tool for that than snagit.

One thing I learned just two weeks ago from a phone call to the TechSmith tech support guy is that the.wmv files from Ready/Talk can be run through microsoft media encoder - so they could be pulled into Camtasia and edited. However, the idea of editing a long file in Camtasia does not sound appealing to me.). So that left me with a few hours of video and audio to edit and that's too much to do in Camtasia.

I was delighted to discover Stephen Downes screencast created with Camtasia for several reasons. Second, I'm always happy to see another screencaster, particularly one with great content, take the step of learning Camtasia. First, I've been following the recent stream of posts about "personal learning environments" but haven't delved in depth yet.

Learning Journal: Experimenting With Adding Music to Web Videos

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Stepping back and thinking about the screencasting now, the Camtasia software has the ability to "silence" the video audio and to add another music track. The next technique that I am exploring in my screencasting/videocasting skill set is the addition of music. I've resisted adding music for three stupid reasons: 1. My (incorrect) perception that non-copyrighted music is crap. Why add KB or MB to the file size when my content instructional.
