Screencast of OpenShot Chroma-Key Effect

October 4, 2009

Watch and Learn! I demonstrate how to use OpenShot with the Chroma-Key (i.e. blue screen) effect. I also demonstrate two new features, our static timeline (i.e. scrolling the timeline vertical does not scroll the timeline ruler), and our simple export options. To view the demo video that I created during this screencast, use this link: demo video.

I used OpenShot (version 0.9.43) and gtk-recordMyDesktop to create this screencast. If you create your own screencast of OpenShot, please let me know and I'll add it to the website.

Re: Ubuntu UK Podcast

September 13, 2009

This video was created with OpenShot Video Editor (version 0.9.33), as a response to the Ubuntu UK Podcast: who mentioned OpenShot on a recent show.

OpenShot is not just another video editor. It is a very stable, powerful package which is already the easiest-to-use video editor for Linux! Says me. =)
