Read Record a learning project ourself by Trond L @ 12/24/2015
Hi Richard, I really like the Access learning zone, with clear and good video instructions. Actually, I would like to make a few learning videos myself, regarding other topics. However, what program do you use to make these videos? A tip could maybe be to make an open session for all customers, showing what programs and equipment to use when making such learning videos. This could give a positive effect, with more people sharing structured information like this. Thanks, Trond

Reply from Alex Hedley:

I think Rich uses HyperCam.
There is CamStudio which is free.
For the few videos I've recorded I use my mac and record them either using two paid programs - Screenflow and Camtasia as these have built in editing software which is handy.

For the handbooks I use Hypersnap and Word. Hypersnap is great because you can set a region of your screen to capture, i.e. the video I'm watching and snap it with a shortcut and have it automatically paste into Word. Greenshot is a free alternative.

Coverting videos, Rich built his own conversion tool in VB6 using FFMpeg and MP4Box to move the streaming file to the front.
I've written up a couple of these VB6 apps as Articles which should be released soon.

There are other tools which could be helpful, like cursors highlighters so you can show where you are clicking.
Make sure you get yourself a good recording mic, I use a nice headset, didn't cost much from amazon.
