I've gotten so much from this great Blender community, I'd like to give back. Before I start I'd like to ask how to do this best.


  • How do you record a Blender tutorial in Windows?
  • What do you have to set to see the keystrokes and mouse presses (or anything else that is worth showing)?
  • Which recording software do you use to record the Blender window? Or can Blender do the recording itself?
  • Can you record the Blender window alone or do you have to let it run in fullscreen to hide other elements like a taskbar?
  • Any additional suggestions?

    $\begingroup$ This is a quite good question, but regrettably most of it is out of scope for this site, on the one hand, an too much opinion based, on the other. I'm voting to close this question as off-topic. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @brasshat I thought so too. But then again it's Blender related. I've seen there's some screencast plugin for Blender, so I guess you could do it all in Blender alone. But I don't know if that's the proper way. After all versions change, methods improve, etc. The tutorial I've seen creates a gazillion of pngs. I rather prefer to have a movie and not have to convert pngs to a movie. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ LukeD, I wouldn't object to moving it there, but I'm not graced with the authority to move it myself. $\endgroup$
