More videos and new screencasting software

I’ve been slowly chipping away at my to-do list and steadily adding to the How-To Videos page for BrewzNET. There are quite a few videos showing how to use the various pipe components and main rendering components – I still have a few for static, multi-state and animated graphics to work on as well as demonstrating how to incorporate the BrewzNET screen into .NET applications of your own, but they are on the near horizon.

I’ve also switched to a new video capture / screen casting tool that is simply fantastic called ActivePresenter from Atomi Systems. While CamStudio did an OK job, the quality of the resulting video wasn’t everything I wanted and it generated ENORMOUS files (like 50-80 megs) that took quite a long while to upload to YouTube. The ActivePresenter generates files in MPEG4, AVI and many other formats in a much more compact and higher quality package – like 4-6X smaller. For anyone doing screencasting videos, I highly recommend it. The Label video is the first one I’ve used it for, and I think you’ll see the difference if you compare it versus earlier videos.
