Episode 037 is posted. In this episode I demonstrate how to make a dvd software box. Since I had just gotten my perspective effect working again I thought it best to hurry and squeeze this one in. Like usual I took some shortcuts and fudged some things. You’ll likely notice that when you watch the tutorial.
Moreover, I fixed the quality of my video. It’s a little better than episode 036. Compiz-Fusion has this neat plug-in called “Resize Info”. When one scales a dialog box an on screen display pops up showing you the window size. It’s really neat and handy. You can make any window any size that you want simply by dragging it to size and stopping when you hit the size that you need. It helped me when I made this screencast.
By the way, yes I did notice the crummy job at tracing my screenshot that is attached to the LCD thumbnail. Trace bitmap doesn’t handle graidents very well without making the output image super big…or superbad…have you seen that movie yet? Funny.
Anyway, grab yourself some coffee or tea before watching this episode. It’s a dozer.
Oh, before I forget. I used the Inkscape logo in this screencast. It’s important to ask permission to use such things first. I didn’t do that. My apologies.
