Hi Justi,

Nice to see all theses new features especially the movable frame.
The circle under the mouse cursor is great but it would be cool to add an option to display this circle only on mouse clicks instead of displaying it black all the time.

Hi Justi,

I have just find out a new open-source application which could be useful for getting "inspiration" for RecorditNow.
Its name is Key-mon and it runs fine on Linux.
Maybe you already know it.
However, the link for its web-page is: http://code.google.com/p/key-mon/

Next year I will start testing RecorditNow on Ubuntu Lucid.
The first Lucid's beta has been already released :-)

I have not forgotten my promise about my sponsorship ;-)

In the meantime, MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL RecorditNow users.

Silvio

Hi, I am using openSUSE 11.2 and KDE 4.3.3.

I have this error when trying to compile:

wei@firefly:~/Download/recorditnow-0.5/build> cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ../
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:84 (MESSAGE):

CMake Warning (dev) in CMakeLists.txt:
No cmake_minimum_required command is present. A line of code such as

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.6)

should be added at the top of the file. The version specified may be lower
if you wish to support older CMake versions for this project. For more
information run "cmake --help-policy CMP0000".
This warning is for project developers. Use -Wno-dev to suppress it.

This should be for something silly. I am not familiar with cmake syntax to know the reason though.

Many thanks for this very usefull piece of software !
Working great even if it has crash few times using the "record a window" option (I will try to retrieve some logs if I reproduce it).

Thx for the ebuilds too ;) It compile like a charm.

After some tests, my two cents about bugs & improvement that can be done :

* There are issues on dual screen configuration (at least on my config):
- It's always the first screen that is recorded when using "record full screen" function.
- The zoom function doesn't work on the second screen (using frame recording). The zoom window stay black and is weirdly far away from the cursor.
These are not major issues as I can still use first screen only but it's cool if it can be adressed.

* The "show mouse clicks" function is great but I think the design could be improved. It's a bit anoying to have this led following the cursor. It could be better to just show a colored circle around the cursor only on clicks.

* Would be cool to have a "cancel" option because it is useless to render the video & encode it if i think I need to redo it while recording.

* Adding params to set distance between cursor and zoom's window.

* The included KDE's opengl effects like the magnifying glass or the stars around the cursor are also very usefull and working great. However, when using frame recording and magnifying glass, the frame is zoomed too (seems normal behavior so far) but recorded video is ok. Should be great that the frame stay at the same size (like recorded video) but it is maybe hardcore to find a way to address this issue as the frame is a part of the display... If you have an idea :)

Thx ++

PS: I've sent you the french localization by email.

same bug and fixed in the next release.
Thank you for report.

>>> [...] weirdly far away from the cursor.

Its not a bug, its a feature! :)
The zoom window can not be closer, because otherwise it would zoom in itself...
I am looking for a solution.


>>> * Would be cool to have a "cancel" option because it is useless to render the video & encode it if i think I need to redo it while recording.

Use the stop button :)

Lol, in fact there are a bug. On the first screen it's far but not too far. But on second screen it's black and also veryyyyy far, quite out of the screen :)

>>> * Would be cool to have a "cancel" option [...]

I'm not sure to understand. Stop button will write the file and proceed to encoding just what I want to cancel ;)
