The flv file plays fine in Mplayer and Xine on Linux, using FFMPEG. Thank you for providing this format!

Hi Kernon

Love the tutorials, although they are till now a bit too low poly.
But my main question was:
What kind of plugin in do you use that print out the keystroke on the screen (when you are recording)?


Kernon Dillon said...


Actually, the keystrokes are added manually. I use Camtasia Studio and I treat the keystrokes sort of like render passes. I just watch the recorded video and add markers wherever I need to add an overlay and then, go back and add the keystroke graphic at each marker. The overlay feature is part of Camtasia Studio.

I've tried many different ways to do this but, I think this is the way I'll keep doing it from now on. This way I have total control over them. I try to catch everything at least a couple of times and as the video progresses, you see fewer overlays because I don't want to keep showing the same keystroke. I figure a couple of times and the viewer should be okay. That way, the more advanced viewers aren't irritated by the constant overlays.

I must say looking for info on the new Z-Brush type function that is now within Blender I must say thank you for setting the record strait saying that it is so open that one must play with this new function in order to understand how to really use it. In the future if for any reason that may come up withing one of your tutorials that you could use this function please feel free, I love the look of it along with you insight. Thanks.

Great tut, Kernon! Will there ever be a part 4 or am I missing something?

Kernon Dillon said...

Thanks for the kind words. They do make a difference.

I apologize for the delay with the Country Pathway series. There's just been so much going on but, it will definitely be finished. I'm sure there will be several more Parts needed to finish it. Hopefully, it will be worth it.
