OK all you Mac folk, now you too can join the screencasting revolution! As far as I know, this is the first software of this type that is available for the Mac. I was a beta tester for this version and I was pleasantly surprised to find how closely it mirrored the Windows version I was already familiar with. I did find it just a little slow to compile the final product into the final Flash file, but that may be a result of my older Mac - it may well scream on a G5 for all I know. Can anyone report on this? The only glitch in this release is that it sadly does not support audio (at least as recorded on the Mac). I am told that a project that has been created on the Mac can be imported into ViewletBuilder for Windows and the audio can be added there, but I haven't confirmed this yet. While this is significant, I'll admit that I never added audio to any of my projects for the first year or so that I owned a copy of ViewletBuilder for Windows. On the other hand, I have had some feedback that students really do appreciate the audio component to these files, and of course Jon Udell uses this almost exclusively instead of annotations for his screencasts.
Qarbon does plan to release the next version, supporting audio, late this Summer.
