In the last few days I gave myself a crash course in ScreenFlow, the screen capture and editing tool from Telestream. Overall my first impressions are very positive, though there are a few drawbacks to using it over my old approach.
This week I completed my first three projects using Final Cut Pro X. I had used earlier versions of Final Cut Pro several years ago, but didn’t have a need for editing video again until last year when I made some Playmaker for Unity3D tutorials. I used iMovie 11, because it’s what I had available at the time, and it did a stand up job, but I missed the more professional editing features of Final Cut Pro. It looks like I’ll be editing a lot more video from now on, so I stepped up to Final Cut Pro.
Over the last couple of months I’ve made a series of video tutorials for my company, Well Played Games. I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about how I created them so I want to share my process.
