Good Things: September 20, 2011: Transmogrify (2011/09/21)
So for last night's livestream I used CamTwist and UStream Producer. However, they made my system pretty slow and the video quality wasn't very good. Does anyone have any other suggestions for software that might work better?
The only other free desktop-streaming software I've found for the Mac is ManyCam, so I'll probably give that a try, and I'll also probably use Justin.TV instead of Ustream tonight since that seemed to work pretty well for my friend Jonathan when he was streaming from his recording studio for all of June, but if there are any other solutions people know about I'd love to give them a try!
(And FWIW I have the top-end current-generation Mac mini, which is a pretty fast computer, but Lion still seems a bit quirky when it comes to a lot of A/V stuff, like with how my audio interface doesn't want to work quite out-of-the-box just yet, so that might also have something to do with how laggy it gets.)
In case you're interested in watching how I work, I'm streaming the comic right now (8:15 PM PDT), on my ustream channel. It will probably go until 10:15 or so.
Well, that was fun! I recorded the whole thing so you can watch it later, although I don't know how long I'll keep the recordings around. Next time I'll try to give more notice.
Who knew forcing myself to do a journal comic could be a good source for positive daily inspiration? You just have to know where to look.
