In this week’s video, I cover the process and tools I use to create Macworld Videos. Yes, it’s a video about making the very video you’ll be watching.

So put on your circular reference hat, and I hope you enjoy this peek behind the Macworld Video production curtain.

Download Macworld Video #120

  • Format: MPEG-4/H.264
  • Resolution: 480 x 272 (iPhone & iPod compatible)
  • Size: 13.8MB
  • Length: 7 minutes

During the video, I demonstrate how I create my Macworld Video segments using a combination of ScreenFlow and Final Cut Express. Most of the video focuses on ScreenFlow, as video exported from ScreenFlow can then be used with any editing program, including iMovie.

I also included a time lapse movie within this video. However, I didn’t use either of the tools I covered in my Make a time-lapse video video. While both those tools are great, neither will capture the desktop at its full size on a timed interval. For that task, I turned to the freeware Timed Screenshot and QuickTime Pro (which can turn a sequence of stills into a movie).
