It must be something about Fridays? For the first half of today’s G14FTA lecture, when I was finishing off Section 3.1 introducing the extended real line, I had the following problems.
- My laptop was on battery power for most of that session, which resulted in the usual audio distortion and lack of synchronization in the recording. This was because I had yet again failed to flick the switch at the power socket. As usual, I only noticed this near the end of the recording when something unusual happened during one of my pen strokes. See if you can spot this in the recording!
- Somehow I managed to swap the Camtasia PiP video input setting from my external USB webcam to the laptop’s internal webcam. As a result, that webcam footage is not very useful, because most of the time it shows a portion of the ceiling, including a rather bright ceiling light. Also, it could be alarming to see my giant hand approaching the screen repeatedly. So I am going to discard the PiP video from that session.
- My Cursor Attention settings were also off, so that I had a pink/red spot instead of my usual red arrow when I wanted to point things out.
Hopefully I fixed all of these for the second half of the class. I’ll know soon!
