A few easy tools for artists (and everyone else)

Most of us know about the ability to make a screen capture from the scene on your computer monitor. It’s not new technology by any means. However, have you ever wanted to capture motion instead of just a still shot? Well, it is actually simpler than you might think.

Just think of the possibilities.

Two examples include:

1. Tutorials -

If you create tutorials on anything, perhaps the use of a program like Photoshop, a visual/video approach can be of a major benefit to your audience.

2. Personal reference -

Perhaps you don’t have the need or ability to create an action in the aforementioned Photoshop, or you are working on a project that you hope to duplicate in the future, the use of  a motion/video capturing application can be a big help.

So without further ado, here are some suggestions for free options you can find with a quick Google search to take advantage of this technology:

Sceencast-O-Matic 

It’s simple to use, shows the mouse movement on the screen perfectly and only records the sound if you want it to. You can export files in  various formats as well.

HyperCam 

This tool is highly user friendly as well. And even the free version doesn’t contain any watermarking.
