Tired of those lame arse filing cabinet folder icons? Looking to make a particular folder stand out? No problem. Step inside my friends, and I’ll show you exactly how to remedy this situation.
YouTube has made huge improvements over the last 6 months that finally make it an awesome one-to-many delivery platform for screen video. The video below (shared via the Jing blog) shows how to use Jing Pro to deliver high quality HD screencasts on YouTube. It’s also a great opportunity to see just how far I’ll stoop (intro shows me in curlers) to get a giggle.

It’s that easy–time for y’all to get Jing Pro and set up a screencasting channel for your favorite piece of software or dev project!
In the past I’ve shown examples of the type of compelling screencast content you can create with the combination of Jing Pro and iMovie. Today, I’ve created a quick tutorial (7:30) that illustrates how to do the following in iMovie:
- Import Jing video.
- Create and select clips.
- Add transitions.
- Use lower thirds.
- Introduce your screencast with a title clip.
- Create credits.
- Export an HD MPEG-4 video.
