I’ve decided to make Photoshop tutorials for editing of photos. My friends-photographers asked me for to do it. They also requested the format of those tutorials – video supported by narration. Screencasting looks like perfect technology for this task, because screencasting is video recording of computer screen output.
There is a plenty screencasting tools on the market. I selected CamStudio Recorder. CamStudio Recorder is an open-source software, it makes possible to use lot of video codecs and it allows also voice recording. All of this was important, because I did not want spend money (I spent time!), I wanted to use video codec compatible with YouTube and I wanted to record my voice as narration of the tutorial.
