  1. Question Script to video file?

    *puts on dunce hat*

    As someone who is usually very computer literate, I feel a bit of an idiot here...

    Is there anyway to convert a recorded drawing/script in ArtRage into a playable video file that someone without ArtRage can view?

    I'm not sure about "converting" it, but you could always use something like CamStudio to record the Playback (which I did for this video).
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

  3. I actually saw you recommending that in another thread and tried it. My results were not as good as yours! It also made the computer very slow so drawing became a bit difficult. What do you put the settings at and what do you have it save it as?

    A couple of things you can do to enhance the video is changing codec you use, and changing the Quality option (both on the Video Options panel). What codecs are offered will depend on your computer system. I usually use one called "Microsoft Video 1". I've found that some codecs take great video, but create huge files. Others create small files, but produce a lousy picture quality. In either case, whichever codec you select, will be affected by "Quality" option you set. So you'll have to do some experimenting with them. For the video I linked you to, I used the settings posted in my attached screen shot.

    The cool thing about the new Script recording, for cases like this, is that you can record the drawing using the script recorder, then just play that back and record it with camstudio, after the fact. This way, you're not having to draw while recording an actual video, which you said causes your strokes to lag.

  5. Thanks! That worked great (recording the recording with the settings).

    Still would love to know if there is a way to convert the script, but this works great till then.

    Is it true that Camstudio does not work on Windows 7. only XP and vista.?

    There isn't a way to convert ArtRage scripts to video files in ArtRage itself so using a recording utility would be the best way to create video files. While we do understand that people might want to record videos, we'd rather avoid overburdening the application with features that aren't directly related to painting and can be handled better in an external app designed for it.

    Dear friend:
    Here is the link to download a free program that records the screen of your PC while working on AR.
