Hi, as mentioned in an earlier thread we have a growing collection of mini vids that each showcase a single feature for promo purposes. They'll most likely end up on the Affinity website to complement the descriptions there.

 

Let us know your thoughts good or bad, thanks everyone.

One of our creatives is also making similar short and sexy videos to promote the Affinity Designer beta via Twitter, if you could retweet them that would be a real help, thanks.

Hi Dale,

I think the videos are all very well made.

I liked in particular the tutorial videos. They are short enough and concise.

The feature videos are great as well. No sound helps to focus and understand what's going on.

The quick intro in the #BecauseWeCan series based on the Affinity logo is really nice.

 

The only aspect i'm not so sure about is the music selected for #BecauseWeCan video series.

I think the mood isn't quite there. I was expecting something more energetic, with a little more punch without being pretentious.

The actual music is maybe too much unpretentious and light. It lacks some presence for a series that's supposed to engage based on the strengths of the program.

But as other things this is rather personal and some people may find it perfectly adequate. Only trying/comparing with a couple different options we can evaluate better which one works best.

Dale, I like what you have done on the tutorials. Maybe a voice to say what you are doing would add a little to them.

Hi Gregg, the tutorials do have a voiceover talking about what the operator is doing. The feature videos and #BecauseWeCan promo vids don't, do you think one or both of those video types should have some? I hoped they are so simple that it's easy to see what's happening.

Dale, I use to teach in the Military(A four year assignment). One of the things I learned was that people learn in many different ways....i.e. visual, sound etc. I just think having a voice with the visual increases the learning for everyone. Your visual is very well done.

Yep it's certainly proven that multiple channels and increased engagement increases retention, that's definitely the case for the tutorial vids.

Agreed, as it happens I'm a visual learner but the short tutorials are pretty quick and by the time I'd followed the cursor around it had finished, so the option to listen, second time round, would have been good for me, too. I was searching around for a volume control....

But the short silent videos aren't meant to be tutorials. Do you think they just don't work for promotional purposes?

They do work as promotional purposes - having slept on it - I can still see them in my mind, I've tried out the gradients (because I wanted to have a go at what I'd seen) and I didn't need to hear the instructions. Zoom and gradients, especially, are nice-sized nuggets of information, I could cope with lots more!

I'm retiring this thread, the feature videos are Private to be deleted soon, we have some much nicer Quick Tips videos instead.

 

See them here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOM7NyLu2a5beJVyX-73f4ABifWdaj5VG

 

Thanks, Dale.
