CD2: Flash-Demo Tool ?
Hi FC - great update, thanks a lot. And nice demos. Would you share with us which tool you used to create the Flash demos of CD2 ?
It's amazing what a "view source" will tell you... or just looking up at the title of the page:
For some strange reason it doesn't play in the latest Mozilla though other Flash movies do.
I've used Camtasia; it's a solid tool for demos. At least the last time I looked, you got 30 days to try it out with all features before needing to pay, which is a plus. I had to fuss some to get an acceptable sound level, but other than that I don't recall any problems.
BTW, another tool that is also helpful for building demos is ViewletBuilder by www.qarbon.com . You can get a 30 day trial version. It's quite popular with software ISVs.
Thanks Zack, thats what I actually hoped for (should have phrased it differently though :-) - whether someone has experiences with other screen recorders generating Flash such as ScreenFlash and the like... Upwards of US$200 seems to me a bit asking considering that Microsoft gives you the same basic functionality for free - with the snag of only creating WMP9 files.
I evaluated Qarbon a while back and contiually recommended it to someone in my office who had to do demo's... he never used it, but obviously I liked it.
BTW, I did notice some promotions of Qarbon Viewletbuilder around $199 recently instead of the list $799. Download the trial version, register on the site and maybe they'll send you the offer...
