Today the customer wanted to see what we were building. I could have walked him through the application, but I decided to do something different. I have a growing number of Watin tests, so I just run the build and let him watch it as it tested the application. It certainly showed what the application can do :-)

Creating demos

time to read 1 min | 103 words

I just spent the last five hours evaluating all sorts of application to produce flash demos.

{Interestingly, there is no free software on this front, only expansive one :-})

I couldn't find a single one that would allow me to do a flash demo easily. Most of them created the content easily enough, but editing it was pure hell.

Macromedia Captivate is so close to what I need, but for some strange reason is didn't track my mouse, making it totally impossible to work with.

Anyone can recommend on a good solution?

I hope you'll like it.
