    Recording your drawing

    This is directed at those who've created videos -
    JudithTramayne, Someonesane, Bumblewales


    are some familiar names I noticed when putting this video tutorial page together

    What did you use? What would you recommend for anyone else wanting to try and record themselves drawing?

    I use a free program called Camstudio for recording. It's the only one I've really used though, so I can't give you pro's and con's against other software like it. I can say that it's pretty easy to use and that I haven't had any problems using it (like crashing or anything like that), which is pretty good for being free.

    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    I use Camtasia Studio 6 which is $299 and can be seen here:

    It's a fantastic program if you're into making videos as a product. But if you just want to record your painting, you can use Camstudio or Wink both are free.

    Ever tried BlueBerry Flashback Pro? It's a $63 (standard) or $159 (professional) great piece of software.

    The pro version lets you do magics, the standard has some limitations but the frame rate you can achieve is really good. IMHO I didn't find any other software so great as this for frame rate.

    There is also a free lite version but when I looked at it it seemed too poor for my needs.

    I made only a few demo videos of my software product, I write the link of it here hoping i'm not violating some policies, just for you to see the frame rate. And moreover, it seems not to slow down my machine, like other screen grabber do.

    Hope it may help!

    google VLC screen capture - it captures what's on the screen, it's the configuring it to look at everything, not just the video that's the trick

    I tried using Camstudio (free) and got reasonable results, but it did interfere with the drawing experience a bit and producce very large output files. I am crap with settings and technical stuff though (I can barely manage toothpaste) and it's more than likely possible to get much better results. Decent enough software and FREE (BIG PLUS)

    For the support vids to that workshop in IFX51 I purloined a copy of Camtasia 6 off a friend. Tons more controls and options as you'd expect from a bit of kit costing $299. Biggest plus for me was how it didn't impact on the drawing experience one little bit - even on my touchy system - no jerkiness at all.

    That's my very limited experience, for what it's worth.
