  • Resource: CamStudio (Open Source)

  • What is CamStudio?
    Microsoft Windows-based screen capture tool very similar to the commercial product, Camtasia. CamStudio allows the user to make videos of anything you can show on your computer screen. CamStudio can output audio video, A/V, files in the generic AVI format and SWF – flash – format. Users would have to convert the AVI format to other formats with other software for it to be used on the web.

    CamStudio is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files and using its built-in SWF Producer can turn those AVIs into lean, mean, bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos (SWFs)

    How Does It Work?
    "Demo your software. ScreenFlow provides all the elements needed to create professional-looking product demonstrations of software applications, including games. Developers can easily record a demonstration of their software with audio and even separate video. They can easily highlight areas of interest, add text, then edit the whole thing and save it as a video ready to be shared with the world. ScreenFlow provides an easy way to create leads and bring in revenue.

    Demo your iPhone app. With ScreenFlow, iPhone developers have a tool to record their applications (using any iPhone simulator), and choose a finger as a mouse pointer as they navigate around their iPhone application. This makes a nice video demo of their iPhone application that they can use to spread the word about their great new app!

    Educate your students. Teachers can use ScreenFlow to record their lectures, tutorials, or instructions for students, or to create rich-media presentations. The beauty of ScreenFlow is that they only need to record their message once and students can access the video at any time that fits their schedule.

    Train your audience. ScreenFlow gives corporate trainers the ability to combine a screen recorded video with Keynote or PowerPoint presentations and video conferencing. ScreenFlow makes it easy to provide online, on-demand video training as a cost-effective and flexible alternative to live training." - Telestream Web Site To download a trial version, visit telestream.net.
