    Lightbulb AR Script

    Hello ArtRagers!

    Forgive my ignorance, I'm new to this.
    I've just finished my first series on ArtRage as finished digital paintings.
    I turned the script "on" before each artwork, thinking that would be a motion picture recording of the artworks, start to finish.
    However, now I've sent the script to my YouTube girl to turn into a video, the script goes to her as coding.

    Is it possible to have a recording of the artwork process, start to finish, as a motion picture?
    I really want that.

    Thank you for your help in advance!

    Benjamin L.M.

    Hello Benjamin,
    Yes, AR Scripts need to be played by ArtRage itself, as all they are, are instructions telling ArtRage what paint to put where on a canvas.
    To get a "movie" of it, to post online, you will need some form of screen capture/recording software running as AR plays back the script.
    Start the recording software first then start the AR script.
    When done the screen recording can be saved in a format that can be edited as a regular movie file.
    Macís have a basic built in screen record function, accessed via QuickTime X, I donít know if Windows has anything similar.
    I use Camtasia 2 for screen recording, though it is at the more expensive end of the market.
    But a search of the internet and App stores will throw up lots of software options for you to consider Iím sure.

    Lightbulb Video Capture Program for iPad & Laptop | Thanks

    Thanks for much for you knowledge, Mark?? I assume.
    You've put me on the right track.
    Are you able to recommend a program that suits both Mac iPad & Mac laptop?
    I need it to be free and simple.
    I'm only going to using the program to "record" the artworks as I make them on the iPad,
    but my YouTuber friend is the one that will do the "work" on them to turn them into short YouTube vids.
    So I want to it be easy for her to use.

    Thank again for your help, I really appreciate it.

    I use http://screencast-o-matic.com/home there is a free version, it's easy to use, works on Windows or Mac and can be posted direct to Youtube. I think the free version restricts to 15mins of recording time.

    Hello again,
    I donít have an iPad so canít advise as to what screen capture software might be available for it, sorry.

    However if you have the desktop version of ArtRage4 on your laptop then my opening gambit would be to first try with the Macís built-in screen capture first.
    You could export the AR script from the iPad as you did before, only this time run the script in AR4 on your Mac and use QuickTime to record the playback.
    (You will need a version of QuickTime thatís after Quicktime 7)

    Youíll find QuickTime X or QuickTime Player (depending on your Mac OSX version) in the Applications folder on the Macbook, launch it and then go to File > New Screen Recording.
    A small black window will open with a record button on it, click it to start. Next to this button is a faint grey chevron, clicking on this before recording will give you some limited recording options depending on what version of Mac OSX you have. (Apple canít help but keep monkeying around with this record feature it would seem!)
    Once youíve got the hang of it, start a new recording and then start the script playback in AR4.
    When done, stop the recording and Save or Export the recording. It will be as a .mov file type which you can then give to your editor to polish up for you.

    Thumbs up Screencast-O-Matic | Thanks

    Thank you much for that info.
    I downloaded it on my laptop, fine, looks good... but it is not available on the iPad, and that's where I make the art.
    Do you know of any that work on the iPad?

    Question QuckTime Not On iPad

    Thanks a lot for that.
    I tried, but I can't get a QuickTime app on the iPad.
    This is a bit harder than i thought!

    Googling...

    Thanks much for that.
    I've been Googling all morning to find a good app for the iPad, so have my YouTuber friend,
    she's the one that will edit the artwork vids to go onto YouTube.
    The best app so far seems to be the "Camtasia" but that's $100 to buy.
    I need a free app specifically for iPad.
    This is a bit harder to achieve than i first thought...

    Hello Benjamin
    So to clarify;
    You have ArtRage on an iPad
    You have a Macbook
    You have AtRage4 on the Mac?

    If all the above is true, what version of Quicktime do you have on the Macbook? You will need v10 to use the the screen capture feature. If memory serves, I think v10 of Quicktime came in with Appleís release of Lion or Mountain Lion OS.

    If you have all the above in place then you should be good to go and not need any other additional software to make the capture as the screen recording will not be happening on the iPad but on the Mac.

    Export the AR Script from the iPad. Open it in AR4 on the Macbook. Start the QT screen record. Start the script playback in AR4. Save the screen recording of the script playing in AR4. Send the file to your editor.
