How to make videos the way you have on discourse home page?

(Adelman Silva) #1

I am trying to create a tutorial for discourse.
are there softwares for windows that can only record a part of the screen?

I really liked the way the home page has those vidoes for demo purpose.

You would have to ask @awesomerobot I am not sure how he created those.

I used Quicktime on OSX to record a portion of the screen and then edited the videos in Adobe After Effects. I haven’t done any video work on a Windows machine, so unfortunately I can’t really help out with screen recording software there…

I know Screenr is Java-based, so that should work on just about anything.

How is your progress on creating those tutorials?

I’d love to find some video tutorials for many basic aspects of using discourse for newbies! :slight_smile:

As for video tools, if you’re on Mac I’d go either with the free Quicktime or the serious $100 ScreenFlow. On Windows I’d try Jing first.

Watching a Category, perhaps the best kind of mailing list mode?
