What We Use
At The Duck Pond we use many pieces of software, some advanced, some simple and here I will detail what we use, and where to find it!
This is the cheapest member of the current Sony Vegas video editing family and is incredibly easy to use! You can go in-depth and create a masterpiece with it or you can simply use it to create and share family videos, there is even an option to share straight to YouTube without having to muck about with render settings.
This piece of screen capture software is what I use to record all my game-play for our videos. It is quite expensive but it is incredibly reliably, I personally have NEVER had a problem with it. The only drawback that some say is a major problem with Fraps is the large file sizes it outputs, but this is no problem and when rendered into .mp4 or .wmv there is no loss of quality what so ever!
This piece of software is incredibly useful as it tells you everything you would want to know about your PC. You start the program, it analyses your system and it tells you detailed info about your hardware and about your computer in general.
This is an incredible piece of free software, it allows free voice and video chat, and it is what we use to talk while in game.
If you are on this website you probably already know what Minecraft is. If not, it is a sand-box building game, involving the moving of blocks of resources and fighting monsters.
Another piece of free software used for voice communication, but you need to pay for a server. Mostly used as a group chat room, similar to Ventrilo.
This is a brilliant piece of free image editing software (nothing to do with MS paint) that I use as I am to lazy to go and get Photoshop out of the attic.
This awesome thing enables you to play the Technic pack, the Yogbox, Hack/Mine, Tekket Lite, Tekkit Classic, Voltz as well as custom jars and the vanilla game all from the same launcher, making it incredibly easy!
This piece of software is used to record audio and edit it, adding effects and fixing broken audio.
