I tested ffmpeg screen grab with alsa support (thanks JB) and tried to
make clean 1280x720 screen grabs (thanks Dan).
Sorry if I keep posting about screen grab, but I would like a suitable
solution for scren grab, which is one of keys for success.
Yesterday, I watched very nice tutorials on Vimeo about Final Cut Pro
(FCP) and other softwares. It is a very neat feature to be able to
follow the mouse.
Problem: ffmpeg does not support following mouse.
Solution: use an external program like recordmydesktop.
recordmydesktop is part of all GNU/Linux distributions.
In short it supports:
* yuv420p non-compressed video capture
* Alsa, OSS and .. jack
* Follow mouse
Example of screen grab:
recordmydesktop -width 1280 -height 720 -fps 15 --full-shots
--follow-mouse -device hw:0,0 -freq 48000 -o capture.ogv
recordmydesktop produces only ogg files, but this is not a drawback as
screengrabs are intended to be edited in Kdenlive.
I am going to use recordmydesktop to create short tutorials.
Shall we use screengrab inside kdenlive?
