Creating Video tutorials.

I've been on this site for about a month now and have enjoyed the learning.
Most of the tutorial are pictures with text but I seem to learn more easier when visually watching video tutorials. Can someone tell me which software they are using more specifically on a Mac to do this?

I'm interested in posting my own tutorials that may hopefully be posted or linked to on this site. Much appreciated.

Re: Creating Video tutorials.

Hi, XXX... Welcome to RTP!

I use SnapZ Pro (from Ambrosia software) for my tutorials done on a Mac. I used it on my G5 and it still works fine on my MacPro. Runs about $80, but I also use it to screen grab YouTube vids that I want to save as QuickTime. I've also managed to capture music files and convert to MP3s with iTunes.

Re: Creating Video tutorials.

How big is the file size on average of a tutorial would you estimate?
I know there are alot of variables to count on but what would be average size of say "5 min. tutorial" ?

Re: Creating Video tutorials.

10-15mB would be about right if done at low resolution..

Re: Creating Video tutorials.

they key is more of the frame rate than the resolution, lynda.com keeps their files small yet keeping the resolution at 640X480 by using that trick...

Re: Creating Video tutorials.

When using this software can you record your voice over, or can you do that at a later time after the recording?

XXXX.. I record voice over as I'm doing the tutorial. I use my Mac firewire iSight camera as the input source.

Re: Creating Video tutorials.

If you just want to experiment some, for a PC try Cam Studio. It's free and works pretty well. http://camstudio.org/
