I’ve been wondering how some of you make videos to post on the net. Scott (Chicowoodnut) put me onto
It’s a pretty cool looking program. I actually managed to do a very short video on SU. What surprised me when I played it back was that it had sound! I had no idea my laptop had a built in microphone. So if you play this video – you’ll hear all the typing going on but nothing else. I highly suggest turning the sound down as I’m apparently quite a noisy typist. I stopped and started the video quite a lot while I messing with the SU.
I can certainly see where learning to do the video will help me to explain what issues I’m having learning the SU program. But, of course, this just gives me another computer thing to learn about. That can be a good thing, or not. There’s a lot to know about these different programs. But I figure I’ve got at least another week off of work (at least I hope only another week) and another 4 or so after that before I can get back in the shop. So I should have some time to learn them.
I’m quite certain that I have not uploaded the video to this blog correctly. When I opened blip.tv (with the open mini-browser below) and hit my dashboard – it just started to run my video. I had to work on figuring out how to find the “address” of the video.
So anyway – here is my first video for what it’s worth. It’s no great shakes and has loads of room for improvement.
