Once we have that though, I think a series of brief how-tos would be great and we should make them quite prominent in the editing wiki!
That is a most excellent point. I think I'll not worry about doing many yet... But then again, it could be several months before it is released and there could be many fledging editors who could be helped!

I did actually think that too. Got better with vids 2 and 3 though!
Thanks, I will keep my mind on that. There's a good reason the last one was better, and that's because I was actually doing the voice-over at the same time. First two vids I overdubbed the audio after-the-fact, so when I was editing, I wasn't thinking about the talking part, I was just flying through the edits.

Even though I know this, and have even written about it on the forums, I have yet to really internalize this and make it a habit.

This is Safari on a Mac and I used the Screen Recording feature which is built in to the standard QuickTime Player app. It does full 1920x1080 capture (likely more with larger screens now) with audio. I used Avidemux to crop (and re-encode, because you can't crop without re-encoding).
