The creation of the video was a little annoying. I needed it to be HD so that the text was actually readable. Here's how I did it:
- Downloaded CamStudio, a great and free screen capture program.
- Downloaded their lossless video codec.
- Important: If you watch Vimeo to recognize your video as HD, it cannot have a 4:3 aspect ratio! To fix this I changed my screen resolution to 1280x768. I told Windows not to stretch the screen so that I saw black bars at the top and bottom.
- Record and upload to Vimeo. Sweet!
Also, if you've been wondering why my rate of posting has dropped a bit, it's probably because I am putting more of the pointless stuff up on Twitter. If you want to follow me, do, but you'll have to request my friendship (nolacoaster). I still can't decide if I should be open or if I want the protection to post #juicytweets.
