Produce high quality streaming videos with this CamStudio

If you've ever needed to produce a video for use on a web site, it can be difficult to know what format to use. AVI videos can be played on almost any computer, but they are very large. A streaming format such as Flash is a far better option, but it can be expensive and complicated to produce.

CamStudio may be just the program you are looking for. The program can be used to record onscreen activity as an AVI video which can then be converted to SWF using a built in tool. You can record a voice over or, if you prefer, add annotations to videos. You have the option of recording the activity on the entire desktop, or just in a single window, and when the recording is complete, you can configure the video format according to how the file is going to be used - high quality, low compression for use on CDs and DVDs, and a smaller more compressed video for use online.

CamStudio has numerous uses. Small businesses can produce videos to introduce customers to the company, while organisation can record tutorial videos for viewing by employees or customers. For anyone selling online, the program provides an easy way to record product videos to help tell customers a little more about what is for sale.

Verdict:

Simple and effective, CamStudio makes it easy to record videos for use in a variety of forms.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
