I had a really hard time following this, because I am not familiar with the program. So, when the author is saying - you want your point right here - but is moving the cursor around, I can't grasp where "here" is. And without telling us how to create the set points, I couldn't follow when she said "and just create your set points."

The whole point about making the background look 3-d went by me. The cursor was moving around between 2 points when she said make this one the child. And I don't know what that means. And then she deleted the point anyway, but I never saw any difference in the image.

I think for starting out on a program it's really important to define terms, go slowly, and describe exactly what you're doing very carefully by keeping the cursor right where you're talking about something. Click on ONE tool at a time and explain what it will do, then use it to perform the task, so we can see exactly how you used it.

That would help me a lot, and probably a lot of other novice users, too.

Tutorial was great. Wish some more things were covered, but this being my first time using the program it exsplains the basics well.

Review of Basics of Drawing and Animation

You don't tell us how to use this at all. Kinda useless if you ask me...And, you did!!!

Good overview. Much improved over the first video in the series.

Hey there, glad to have you back with us! Nice screencast, it is well paced and very clear.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
