Screencast tip of the week

when using transitions stick to only a few. There are either the dip to black/white or the cross dissolve. Too many people over use transitions that are available to them. If your goal is teaching transitions then by all means go ahead and use them all, if it's not, only use the ones I suggest. Adding transitions can and will detract from your message.



Why Jeff Uses final cut pro to add intro outs 

He uses Compressor to slim down his videos and batch create saves time

He Uses pixel mater

Jeff said Edit from the back to front

Always have viewer in mind when creating screencasts

Watch and learn how to edit videos from experts and you’ll become a better screencaster

Use export settings for intended audience
