FYI: A Change in Forum Posting

I just wanted to let you know that I won't be posting tutorials in the blenderartists forum anymore (or at least for a while) due to delays and an inability to post without repeated php errors. I'll probably try to post there every now and then but, I just don't have the time to wrestle with it anymore. Maybe I'll try and post a question about the issue.

Notifications will be posted on CGTalk in the Blender forum.

I just thought I would let you know...

P.S. - Practice and study, there's a big test coming soon! :)

If you could share your way how you recorded the tutorials ohters might be able to do some too. (The sw you used to record and the compression settings for the avi)

Have a great day.. :) Robert.

Basically, I use Camtasia Studio. I used to use Wink and CamStudio (free, older version of Camtasia). Other tools include PhotoPlus, MWSnap, Creative WaveStudio, VirtualDub, Audio-Technica Cardioid microphone (PC mics just didn't cut it), and (for free music loops, as long as you credit the authors). I'll be doing my own little music loops in the future but, right now, saves me some time.

Most common settings are:
- xVid MPEG-4 Codec (default settings)
- 24-bit Color
- Frame Rate 10-15
- Audio: MP3 48,000Hz, 15 KB/s

I might write an article, later on, on BlenderNation about how to make video tutorials.

There are a lot of python script that have been published with blender. And some are quite powerfull. I'll try to get some of them documented.

Thanks.. Greetings Robert.

Go for it!

Tip: Make an outline of the tutorial and do things in sections. In other words, it helps to not try and record the entire tutorial all in one take. It makes editing easier and you don't have to finish it all in one sitting.

Good Luck!
