Hi.

I'm teaching HCI Design at undergraduate level, and I want my
students share their DIx concepts on video. Unfortunately I'm not
specialist in video-making tools. Therefore, I was wondering if you
can give me some advise about the basic software tools and some
tutorials about the process.

Thank you.
Greetings,

Hi there. Still having doubts.

For example, if they want to simulate the interface on a "white"
object, do they need to export the interface animation as a movie,
and if so, is it possible to mount it on another clip (the one about
the people interacting with the product)?

I'm taking as reference something like Mag (of course we need to
start with simple things).

Thank you again for your answers and advise.
Omar.

Hi
There is a screen capture tool called Camtasia studio its ideal for
capturing onscreen interaction and creating video from that which you
can export in different fornats.

If your requirement afterwards is to edit these videos there are two
software solutions that I can recommend which are, Final Cut Pro or
Adobe Premiere

links to these are below

hope this helps

kind regards

Dave

In most cases Camtasia will do :)

Hi Omar,

I can second the Camtasia recommendation. I used it to put this
video<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxTZedCjnoE>together. (I recorded
the screen while "interacting" with a mockup that I
created in Visio.)

To create something like the Mag+ video, I think you will need something
much more sophisticated and expensive...

Hope this helps,

I third the Camtasia recommendation, with Screencast.

Similar to Camtasia, there's ScreenToaster
http://www.screentoaster.com/ is a cross platform web based screen
capture software. Hope this helps.
