I've done some screen shots over the years but have never taken the time to become proficient at FS video capture and editing.
First everyone is familiar (except me) with Fraps. they say it is free for a limited number of minutes, if you want the restrictions removed looks like it is $37 US now. http://www.fraps.com/
While I was looking up the Fraps website I found this webpage with five alternatives to Fraps that are free: http://www.anewmorning.com/2009/01/0...ives-to-fraps/
Next, I was wondering about video editing software. I recall a really cool product from Apple, or rather it was on an Apple computer as a demo. What payware and freeware or opensource products are there that can be used to edit videos? What would be appropriate if I got my own video camera and wanted to do small productions?
What format is accepted by youtube? Is it a standard format, or is there an formal professional format and or the every day youtube format? What can be done in Linux or Windows? Apple computers are so expensive I can't imagine it, I've been a little frugal through these recessions.
Oh, while on this subject, I wonder if anyone can help me on this Linux point also. Let's say you have an NTFS partition which both Linux and Windows can read and write on:
You create new folders with Linux, or Windows on the NTFS partition (separate from the Windows partition), and, Linux and read and write either, no problem whatsoever, it's really amazing.
If however you create folders with Linux on the NTFS partition, Windows can not read them at all and use such words as corrupted file, and has caused real problems reading any such files using Win 2000, Win 7, and WIn 8. What's up with that? Is there a Linux program that can correct this?
