  • This is a late addition to this thread, but OBS Studio is, among other things, a ‘kick-ass’ screen capture program that has made my production work flow much easier in the creation of videos. I still use Adobe After Effects to post-process, but I no longer need a video camera to capture the visualization. OBS also captures at full HD quality in real time, you simply have to choose the parameters for recording before hand. (Of course, it doesn’t hurt that I have a much better video card than I did in those days, a faster CPU with more cores and more RAM).

    The greatest part is- it’s free! For those interested, you can check it out here:

    OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) is free and open source software for video recording and live streaming. Stream to Twitch, YouTube and many other providers or record your own videos with high quality H264 / AAC encoding.

    I am now able to process video in 4K resolution, and a track that is around 8-10 minutes in length can be processed in under two hours- usually 30 minutes to an hour depending on how many effects and transitions I apply.

    Here is a recent example of a 4K video I posted:

    • Hey there! I stumbled upon this thread and thought I could share my experience with video creation and editing. I also use Adobe After Effects, and I agree that it can be time-consuming when working on a long video with many cuts and transitions. One tip that has helped me is signing the different fragments containing events, which helps to keep track of the audio and video tracks and their order.For those who are new to video editing, I would recommend checking out Vidpros. It's a user-friendly online video editing software with simple functionality that's easy to understand for most people.

      • since my last post in this topic I have given up on Sony Movie Studio and switched to DaVinci Resolve, which is free and very powerful

        another development is moving away from flame fractal animations, at least for the time being, and creating abstract animations directly in DaVinci Resolve using the Fusion page, specifically, rosette style graphics

        here is my latest example,

        and today I did a (rather embarrassing) livestream where I talked about how I go about creating them
