Screencasting HOWTO

A Tutorial by Ralph Giles

"Screencasting" is a great new way to demonstrate your software to people online. Instead of just posting a screenshot, you can make a movie of your application in action so they can see the flow of your interactive elements, all the cool animations, or just how rocking your desktop really is. It's even better with narration!

Software on the free desktop is making it ever easier to produce screencasts. We'll discuss how screencasting works, basic formats and techniques, and try out some programs for automating the process. By the end of the session you should all be able to record an app demo and post it to your project website or blog.
