Flash User Group meeting Friday February 26th, 7.30pm

This month’s meeting is from the Flash User Group but a lot of you will probably be very interested in this. The Dreamweaver group will kick off properly at the March meeting (25th March).  In the meantime can I encourage you all to sign up on the Adobe Groups site, as a lot more of our activity will be taking place there this year.

Flash Oxford, Friday February 26th

7.30pm at OFVM / Film Oxford

After an extended Christmas break the Flash User Group starts afresh this Friday. We have been working hard to come up with monthly themes to take us through the year. As ever we are hoping to cater for a wide range of Flash users and provide an opportunity for informally meeting other Flash users. We also will continue our regular software give- aways.

This month we will look at Camtasia. This is a screen recording software suite that allows you to record a presentation or tutorial to a video file. You can then edit and save the result as flash web page.

There are some great features in this package and John Twycross will demonstrate how to use it and also how he has used it to teach animation. TechSmith, the makers of the software, have given us a free copy of Camtasia and Snagit to give away on the night.

Tim Watts will be introducing a competition to take place of the Adobe software raffle entitled “Slapdash”. The winner of the competition will win an Adobe software bundle worth over $2000. More details will be revealed on the night.

Finally to round off the night we will have a Flash Surgery. This is an opportunity to ask for help or advice on any projects or ideas you are working on. Feel free to bring along any work to show. This is an open session where you should not be embarrassed to ask questions and join in the discussion.

We hope to see you there.
