: The makers of Visual Communicator, Serious Magic, have announced a new tool called Vlog It.
I’ve been singing the praises of Visual Communicator since I used it to play with vlogging two years ago. VC does two important things: first, it gives you a teleprompter on your PC screen so you actually have something to say; second, it lets you drag-and-drop insertion of graphics, audio, and video onto your script so, as you read off the prompter, you record the finished product — no postproduction or editing needed.
I said way back then that the Visual Communicator folks were missing the boat by not targeting bloggers. It took them two years to wake up but now here is a vlogging tool. It’s Windows only and outputs only in Windows and Real formats (it’d be great if it created Torrents, too). It costs $99. I’m paying the same to upgrade my copy to the latest pro version.
