Ryan, very well done. This software has some wonderful features that, you're right, can't even come close to being replicated with static paper spectra. How did you create this screencast?

Also, does this software run on Mac and Linux?

Ryan

Thanks for the comments Rich.

The screencasts were created using Camtasia Studio. It seems to work fairly well for the creation of these types of videos.

Unfortunately, I am still looking for a solution to embed Camtasia produced movies in my blog (i.e. youtube, google video, videoegg, etc.) as opposed to sending users to another page to watch the video. The compression that those services provides result in movies that are unwatchable, so this is the only solution I currently have. Any suggestions would be welcome!

As for the MAC and Linux question, ACD/1D NMR Assistant cannot run without an installation of Windows in a native or virtualized environment.

With virtualized technology such as Apple Bootcamp, Parallels Desktop, Microsoft Virtual PC, VMWare, etc.

I would recommend anyone interested in trying the software on a MAC or Linux platform to obtain an evaluation copy from ACD/Labs and try it out with one of the above software packages, or something different depending on their own.

Here's a couple of reviews from users who have tried with ACD/1D and 2D NMR Processor:
