New Year Resolution Presentation

Here is a short clip I made using two softwares-

1) Prezi Desktop

This is an innovative single slide way of creating macromedia presentations. Recommended for offbeat new look presentations.

2) Xvidcap screencapture- For capturing and creating a video based on screen capture. This is the Linux Version of Camtasia- there is only one drawback the default rate is a bit fast- so audio and frame capture settings in a multi frame need to be tweaked.

3) I Phone- For Photography- It’s still the handiest camera around.

(Note- The Collage and Presentation are works of fiction)
