A side project: more video tutorials

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sat Apr 30, 2011 6:33 pm

I took a quick look over the exiting video tutorials and found some needs for more updated info. So, I tried creating some more. I did these late in the evening, so as to not disturb the sleeping family, I sound like I'm talking quietly. And I talk too fast sometimes.

I made these videos for those who are familiar with shortcut keys as I use them a lot.

Let me know if you think these are useful and/or how to change them.

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).

Regarding the videos themselves, can't really fault them other than to say it might be useful to briefly mention what keyboard shortcuts you're using as you use them. Otherwise it's not always obvious what option you're using!

Was funny with the third, I was just thinking, "Hmm, I'd probably make that a bit more of a T-junction" and seconds later you piped up with exactly that! :)

That's the other thing I was going to say... when you delete that extra section of highway, there was a node on the eastern side which obviously became invisible once the segment was deleted - you should probably delete the node first!

Nice job Alan!

I especially like the ending of your other T-shirt folding video! (Even though you don't do it in 2 seconds like the Japanese tutorial.)

Actually, your videos are a great practice run for when we will all have to learn "Cartouche - Re-imagined".... hopefully soon.

I did have a question for you. What screen capture program did you use. Just curious.

Nice job. The only minor criticism in the first video is you sometimes jerk the map around. For a newb trying to follow you, slower, more deliberate moves of the map would help.
