I've been following your adventures in timelapse Illustrator for a while now and it's great work. Whilst your maps and graphics are truly inspirational, I'm also interested in how you recorded the process- what software, and whether it required a lot of editing, etc. I looked through your posts a while ago, but couldn't find details.

I was wondering if a timelapse like this would be a useful way for students learning Illustrator to demonstrate their technique.

Cheers, and keep timelapsin'!
Will

I have switched screen capture software many times. Each package I have tried has it's own advantages and disadvantages, but they are all extremely similar.

On the first video I did (http://www.escapekey...me-lapse-video/) I captured everything in real time and sped it up in the video editing software. After that, I decided to try capturing one frame per second, but I found the video choppy, so I went back to my old way. This makes for lots of big files and complicates editing.

The editing can take quite some time. In one of the videos mentioned in this post I included some live video of me at my desk as well. That increased the editing a lot. I used to only use Windows Movie Maker, but this time (and one other time) I used Cyberlink PowerDirector as well.

I only use inexpensive or free software for the videos, and I'm not educated in video at all. I'm sure a person who does digital video editing or studied it could give you (and me) better advice. I've just figured it out as I go.

I guess if I were a teacher and I wanted to teach my students how to use a program efficiently, videos like this might make it easier for me to help them. There would be some technical hurdles to make, but it seems doable.

Thanks
