There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Do I have to be registered to grab Timanthes? Or is it just broken?

Not sure if many people know about this option in ProMotion but in a recent conversation with Jan Zimmermann (ProMotions creator) he pointed it out to me and it is very useful.

There is an option under the Animation Menu, Create From Undo Buffer. You can use this option to create an animation of the steps that you took to create your pixel art without the need for using a seperate video recorder program. Also, this has the added benefit of hugely reduced filesizes and no extra steps inbetween putting your pixels down. The only drawback is that you cannot see what options\ menus and so on the user is selecting.

Hope this is helpful to someone :)

Jason.

That kinda works, but in the current version you only have 128 undosteps so you have to fiddle stuff together and do it every now and then.
The next version will have unlimited undosteps (depending on how much ram you have).

True, but it is handy if your computer cannot handle a proper video recorder (like mine). You can always create several parts too, for each time you have used up your full 128 undo levels.

True. Though I think that a full capture where you can see the options and other stuff are better because you see more of the actual workflow and not just a magically growing picture.

I've just recently got a setup where I can record reasonably. Recording overhead still makes my movements a little like flying through molassess. Don't have anything interesting yet, just a video of me doing some minor touchups on a pixel-art logo -- honestly the most interesting part is at the beginning where you can see the terminal window recordmydesktop is running in and it says "Your window manager appears to be awesome." :)

Still, I've got to recommend recording yourself, if only to see where you waste the most time. In my case I spend a lot of time zooming in and out when I should arrange a preview window instead. Even if you don't think your results are worth posting here, it's still worth doing it and reviewing the footage :)

If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.
