Having made some videos on Openshot before, I recieved a couple questions on how to do certain tasks in openshot.  Question number 1, was how to add pictures on top of a moving video and size and position them as wanted. The other question was how to show multiple videos at the same time, in the same frame. As a bonus and because it fit in with the info being provided I also demonstarted how pictures or videos can be moved across the frame.

Here is the new Screencast here.

What are the previous Openshot tut's

Going to focus on mixing in some tutorials that appeal to a wider Linux audience and are not so Vectorlinux specific.  Of course everything is still being done on Vector so the message is there.

So with that in mind heres....

New Day, new tutorial.

Winetricks has come out with an update, so I thought I'd update the video tut.  The new Winetricks tested out to be really solid.

This one's not opensource, kind of feel bad about that, but I can't find anything opensource that does what it does.
If someone can suggest something I'm all ears.

Ok, back to some opensource goodness.  Just built the update for this and put it in the repo for 32bit, if someone can do the same for 64bit, I'd really appreciate it.  My 64bit machine is going through some changes right now.

Anyway, here is the days screencast.

What is Tintii? Why does it make my pictures look cool.

Tintii version 2.6.1 was just recently released.  So I thought I'd use the occation to get the word out on this Opensource application.  In the Tintii's own words...
"For photographers who love to express colour, use Tintii for colour  on black-and-white, colour popping, selective colour, saturation  contrast and subtle hue and lightness adjustments. Use Tintii..."
So in simplier terms Tintii will extract the color from everything you do not want to draw focus too.  This can make for some cool pictures check out the video.

Window manager's in Linux, Sawfish

There is plenty to choose from in the way of Window Managers in Linux, so what makes Sawfish special. Once the default window manager of the Gnome desktop environment. Sawfish is now an independent window manager.
