CamStudio Desktop Capturing wie Captivate RoboDemo
Zum erstellen von Hilfe Video´s kennt man ansich nur Macromedia Captivate aka RoboDemo. Damit lassen sich Hilfevideo´s unter amderem als swf´s erstellen.
Ich stolpere gerade über CamStudio Open Source Desktop Capturing Software die eine lustige Historie aufweist … Sie scheint ein Teil der Ursprungssoftware von Captivate zu sein, die frei verfügbar ist.
Hier ein Auszug aus der Webseite:
"Over the last few months, quite a people have asked me about CamStudio’s history and the confusion with the V2.1 that’s around, so I thought I’d explain what the situation is, as I understand it …
CamStudio was originally released by a company called RenderSoft who were subsequently bought by a company called eHelp who used some of the technology in their program, RoboDemo …
Some time later, eHelp was bought by Macromedia who wanted RoboDemo (which was to become Captivate) …
Knowing that CamStudio did some of the stuff RoboDemo did for free (mainly export to streaming Flash), it looks like they released a newer version of CamStudio (2.1) which fixed some bugs but most importantly, removed certain features, mainly the ability to create SWFs and you were required to register to use it … lovely – and over time, links to the various webpages that had CamStudio and it’s source code were became broken."
Das Tool lässt sich auch gut zum ScreenCasten einsetzen, so bin zumidest darauf gestossen (macht dem Lesen ein Ende, meine Augen tuen schon weh )
