Creating a screencast is easy - all you need is a steady hand and a lot of patience. If you want to help out with Plasma screencasts, here are some guidelines:

  • Use a resolution of 640×480 to produce GIF files with the same dimensions as the original screencasts.
  • Make your desktop look like the ones in the other screencasts. This includes panel height, widgets, desktop style, icons in the system tray and wallpaper.

Hint: Most are default settings.

  • No unnecessary mouse movements. In the beginning and at the end the mouse pointer should be completely still for about 1 second.
  • Smooth mouse movements, not too fast. When clicking it's sometimes nice to hold down the button a little bit longer than usual before releasing.
  • Use left click when possible.
  • Redo until you're 99.9 % satisfied.
  • Follow the name convention: Plasma_howto-[section]-[item].png. See the name of the other screencasts.

For information about how to record the screencasts and some tips, see Record screencasts to animated GIF files.
