Jing Pro giveaway

Earlier today I reviewed TechSmith's latest and greatest screen capture and recording tool, Jing. The free version is great -- and it's fantastic that the only branding is at the end of the video, not slathered all over it like most watermarks -- but, as always, the pro version is better. Pro enables a bunch of funky things: it removes branding from videos, enables MPEG-4 encoding, and it...

Jing, the all-in-one screen capture and recording tool from TechSmith, reviewed

TechSmith, with the launch of Snagit more than 20 years ago, is the definitive veteran of screen capture technology. Camtasia Studio, launched almost 10 years later, is now at version 7.1 and remains the best screen recording and video editing suite out there. TechSmith's latest tool, however, is an interesting mix of both Snagit and Camtasia. It's called Jing, and it makes sharing screenshots...

Camtasia 7.1 giveaway and video review

Personally, I think TechSmith's Camtasia is the best screencast recording and editing suite available for Windows today. It's an extremely capable application, and one of its only potential drawbacks is the price – at $300, this is not a cheap piece of software. This is where the giveaway comes in! TechSmith recently released Camtasia version 7.1, with several interesting new features....

Video: An early look at Chrome OS booting

First things first: yes, this is, in fact, Chromium OS and not Chrome OS. Chances are good that we won't see Google's semi-closed Chrome OS for a few more months, but Chromium is something you can play with now -- and it provides a good look at what you can expect from its cousin. Over the next few days, I'm going to share screenshots and videos from my compile. My build uses the "plain...

Photoshop CS5 imaging tip: HDR goes PRO!

HDR, or 'high dynamic range imaging', is a popular term in photographic circles at the moment. Love it or hate it, HDR, thanks to the digital camera, is here to stay. To that end, Adobe has finally given us a half-decent interface for conjuring up blindingly over-shiny and under-achieving HDR photographs. Dubbed 'HDR Pro', it replaces the God-awful interface present in CS4. Whether it will make...

Photoshop CS5 Imaging Tip: content-aware spot healing and fill tools

One of Photoshop CS5's most talked-about and exciting features is its new 'content-aware' algorithm. Either for spot healing or filling arbitrary areas, the content-aware tools provide a new and surprisingly-veracious replacement for the clone brush and other antiquated methods. The screencast is only a few minutes long, and even if you you haven't used Photoshop before, you will find the...

Internet Explorer 9 Developer Preview 2 - Speed Tests (video)

We're thoroughly impressed with the latest preview of IE9, even if we've only been playing with it for an hour or two! Because some people might not be able to install it in their current environment, I've demonstrated the three new speed tests that Microsoft has included with the new build. I've even included a little, easily-excitable commentary. If you've had a chance to play with the...

CaptureFox add-on lets you easily create screencasts from within Firefox

CaptureFOX is a pretty sweet Windows-only screen recorder add-on for Firefox. It's not perfect; the biggest drawback, in my mind at least, is that you can record video in up to 5fps. I usually use Camtasia, which is pretty nice but also very expensive (in the hundreds of dollars). This free solution doesn't have all of Camtasia's bells and whistles (well, it doesn't have any of them, to be...

DLS Screencast: first time with Microsoft Pivot

Microsoft Labs has an insanely-cool tech demo product called Pivot. In a nutshell, it's a completely new browsing paradigm which lets you "swim" in the ocean of data rather than drown in it. You can zoom in and out on complex sets of data, and slice and dice them in all sorts of crazy ways. I saw a TED talk about it (you can watch it too, after the jump) and on the one hand it seemed very...

Camtasia screencasting software now has a Mac version

Camtasia, one of the best screencasting applications for Windows, just got a highly-anticipated Mac release. Camtasia can easily record audio and video from multiple sources at once, so it's easy to talk someone through what's happening onscreen. The recording of your screen, your Mac's audio output, sound from your microphone, and video from your iSight can all be easily arranged in the...

FireRift - a CMS to rock the ages!

Launching a new CMS these days is a tough proposition. It's a crowded field, and distinguishing your product takes some ingenuity. Well, FireRift is one publishing platform that knows how to take a marketing concept way, way over the top. The video commercial for FireRift is like something out of a campy Ronnie James Dio video from the '80s, with a meteor, glowing eyes, and a couple of wizardly...

Record screencasts and share them on Twitter with Screenjelly

Screenjelly is a quick and easy screencasting tool that works totally in the browser. It records what's on your screen, plus the audio from your computer mic so you can explain what you're doing as you do it. Recordings are limited to 3 minutes, and the service lets you share your recordings via Twitter. It's a lot like Twitpic or Yfrog, but for screencasts instead of photos. Screenjelly fills the...

Record screencasts from your web browser with ScreenCastle

ScreenCastle is a Java-based tool for recording screencasts from your web browser. If you've got Java installed on your computer all you have to do is visit ScreenCastle and click the big red record button. A window will pop up asking you to select the area of your desktop that you want to record and decide whether you want to capture audio from your microphone. That's pretty much it for the...

Review: Coding in Objective-C 2.0 screencasts

Last month Grant, Christina and I checked out a couple of screencasts from Pragmatic Programmers' Bill Dudney. Specifically, we watched "Coding in Objective-C 2.0." We took a look at part one mostly, which is an introduction to the Objective-C syntax and structure, culminating in a basic application. Part two covers memory management in depth. Since then they've added a part 3 on debugging, and...

ScreenToaster web based screen recorder adds audio capture

ScreenToaster is a web-based screencasting utility that works via a Java applet. That means that as long as you've got Java installed you can use ScreenToaster to record screencasts on any computer running OS X, Windows, or Linux without installing any additional software. Last time we looked at ScreenToaster it had a few limitations. You couldn't record live audio and you couldn't save...
