Creating a demo

I just got through my first attempt at creating a demo. I made the demo using Camtasia, which is very easy to use and has a generous fully functional 30-day demo version.

It’s kind of funny — I’m pretty used to public speaking, and don’t get all that nervous doing it, but I was nervous creating the demo. Maybe because it’s kind of creepy to just be talking to yourself.

Overall the demo was pretty easy to make, but the audio has some pretty bad popping. It’s due to the cheapo mike I’m using: in order to get enough volume on the sound, I had to get the mike close to my mouth, which picked up all those lovely popping “p”s and “t”s.

I’ll get down to the computer shop tomorrow and shop for a better mike, but for now I think I need a nice cool beverage to wet my whistle.
