Now comes the reflection on the process, the craft of screencasting. 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.

Some immediate reflections on screencasting while it is fresh in my head. Screencasting (and the software) has three functions: storyboarding, production, editing. Next I'm going to try the free trial of Camtasia (Udell uses that one) and go back to fooling with Camstudio (the free open source tool). So look out for more formal reflections about process, particularly on the art of screencasting, along with reviews for some of the tools, both free and expensive.
