Screencast Videos: Making How-To Videos Without a Camera!

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by FirestormDigital, Oct 21, 2007.

  1. Recently I have seen not one but two producers release very good
    video productions in which they did not shoot a single frame of
    video. Using screencast software, a presentation program and some
    stock images, these producers created good instructional videos.

    Doing some research on the topic, I put together a list of some
    resources if you want to do the same:

    Screencast Software:

    Camtasia (Windows)

    iShowU (Mac)
    http://www.shinywhitebox.com/
    SnapzProX (Mac)
    http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/snapzprox/

    Presentation Software:

    ConceptDraw MindMap (Windows)
    http://www.conceptdraw.com/en/products/mindmap/main.php
    PowerPoint (Windows)
    http://office.microsoft.com/
    Keynote (Mac)
    http://www.apple.com/iwork/

    Simply record your on-screen visual presentation as you click
    through it, add some stock photos, add your narration, and your
    video is finished!
