Creating Flash Presentation using Auto Panning Easily.

At this moment, there are many way to make a presentation. One of them is to use a screen capture. We will show you how to make a presentation using screen capture with auto panninng. Panning is a way to move the capture area during capturing session. Moving capturing area is useful when you want to record different part of desktop one at a time. Without panning, your only option is to record the whole desktop which is not quite effective as the resulting presentation will be very large.

Here is the result

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
