I am continuing to try to find the best setup for my screencasting with picture-in-picture (PIP) video from my webcam.
However, I may have the lighting too bright? Or else I am still facing limitations of the webcams/laptop.
These latest PIP videos were recorded using my own Creative Livecam Optia, rather than the School’s logitech webcam. I am using a 40 watt bulb in my desk lamp (the maximum it takes). I am als keeping the desk lamp a bit further away from me than before (as recommended by Alan Mintey).
These recent screencasts are definitely a vast improvement on, for example, Lecture 1 and many of the other screencasts with PIP video available from http://www.maths.nott.ac.uk/MathsModules/G14FUN/LectureNotes.html
