Thanks to my purchase of ScreenFlow for the Mac, this is the first of a whole slew of How-To computer videos:
Since Vimeo has full-length high-quality video, we’re able to present this video in only 1 part (37 minutes).
I’ve started filming and editing a new video tutorial: Lizardmen vs Star Crusaders. I’ve completed turn 1 (recording and editing), and will work on turn 2 (and maybe 3) tonight with the intention to complete the editing of turn 2.
There are a few changes in how I’m recording: I’m recording using both the Nikon CoolPix’s microphone and using Voice Memos on my iPhone. I take both files and sync up the audio in my video editor (unfortunately still Vegas 4 as I’ve not the time to purchase or try another video editor for now). So far this makes the audio sound much better than the previous tutorial.
I may edit this list (as I’m running off memory and I’m not sure how many Lizardmen Warriors I had on the table), but here are the forces participate in the test tutorial:
Star Crusaders (864 points)
Lizardmen Force (853 points)
So far the test tutorial has been a blast, and although there are already a couple of mistakes & rules omissions that I’ve corrected or explained in on-screen text when necessary it’s so far a good example of cross-genre combat. This type of game is one of the biggest reasons that the Open Wargaming System was conceived.
Since the system has changed just short of the fundamental level. I did learn a lot (filming*, editing and explaining) while doing it though, the next one will be a (slightly) smaller game and much easier to follow. Plus with the new mechanics the math will be easier and the flow will be quicker.
I hope to have the filming* finished by this weekend, and the editing done as soon as the filming has completed.
*Yes, technically it’s not film
