Yes, you're right - and the new edition (whenever that may be) will certainly have more movies on the CD. Trouble is, those things are damned time consuming to create...


Steve what do you use to create movies? Is it Techsmiths Camtasia?

www.techsmith.com

It seems fairly easy to produce a movie using this.

I use Snapz Pro, which is a Mac program. It's the voiceovers that really take the time, and I'm not sure why they take so long to do. Thought of doing it with captions instead this time around, if that doesn't amek it too impersonal.

I would like to add my vote for lots of movies. I loved them. I would definitely buy a full dvd if you brought one out.

I enjoy hearing the voice and would prefer it to captions. I think people tend to be too net when adding captions. Then the learning style is too close to reading the book, whereas a voice on a movie reaches the hearing learning style. By reading the book, seeing and hearing the instructions, one has covered all the learning sytles and will most likely "get it". I enjoy reading the book, but find the actual doing of the workthrough helps to cement the idea better than just reading. Being able to view the movie, in addition to reading and finishing the workthrough, is the best of all worlds.

I agree that the movies really are a wonderful addition to the book and would encourage you to add as many as you can. I can see where it would take much more time and effort to add movies for each section, which might cause the price of the book to sky rocket. Perhaps a DVD that could become an add-on product might be a consideration. Then those of us who learn better through the addition of sight and sound could make the decision to spend more money.

OK, maybe you're right, I'll try to keep the voiceover. I just realised after recording them that each one started "we're going to…" which sounded a bit stupid, to me. And, yes, I'll do as many as I have time and disk space for!

Glad you find them useful. Worth the pain, after all!

I don't know why your so bashful about your voice Steve it sounds perfectly okay on the existing movies - Succinct and clearly understandable. My pet hate is viewing Tutorial Movies with lots of Errs and Ums as if they haven't thought out what they were presenting yours by contrast is clear & concise and no faffing about.

So let's have no more of this nonsense about your voice, Steve - Say it loud & proud

I too really like the movies and there's absolutely nothing wrong with your narration, Steve.

I agree totally (but also sympathise with Steve about the time involved), the voiceovers are fine, by no means dull or droning - some others I've heard have left me drawing a noose with the pen-tool, rather than the task at hand

There are voice masking programs out there... You could make yourself sound like anyone with those.
