I knew that once everyone put in the time to get Quicksilver setup according to the last screencast, they’d be chomping at the bit to do something that was actually interesting. So I wanted to get this next screencast out sooner than later. As long as you followed The Setup, then you’re in perfect shape to attempt the following.

Before everyone starts complaining, I know the video size isn’t as large as you’d like it to be. I’ve been dealing with some stupid Quicktime error when I export it to full size. I wanted to get this out to you, so I’m releasing it in the largest format that would work. Please be patient, and I’ll keep working on the larger version.

Without further ado:
Quicksilver: Pictures (mov – 11mb)

As always, if you’ve got questions, let me know in the comments and I’ll answer as soon as I can. If you’ve got suggestions (besides video dimentions!) or whatever, I’m all ears.(Especially if you’ve got suggestions for the video imagery during my closing comments – you’ll see the ‘flurry’ I used in this one…) I am trying to think of all angles here, but I realize everyone learns differently, so be patient as I continue to evolve this Quicksilver screencast process.

Thanks for reading & watching!

  1. the pace was fast in the beginning, had to re-run it a few times to see what you were doing :)
    and why is there a screensaver in the end?

  2. I dont have a “run” command after choosing screen capture.. hmm?

  3. the screensaver was my ‘filler’ while I made my closing comments. Couldn’t figure out what I should put there….which is why I’m open to suggestions about what else people would like to see in the screencast during sections like that where I’m talking randomly.

    Go into preferences.
    Actions section
    with ‘All Actions’ selected, search for ‘run’
    make sure all run commands (in this case, with the gear icon next to it) are checked, or enabled.

  4. I think you need to slow it down a lot. it just was a blur of actions with no explanation on how you were going from step to step or what anything was.

    yeah, I’ve noticed, and noted this for next time. I get going with the intent to show how fast and awesomer Quicksilver is, and then I get stuck in that mode. Will work on that for next time.
    thanks for the input!

    It would be awesome if you can post the keyboard shortcuts you used during the video!

  7. Rishabh –
    I was going to do something like that, but there’s reallyno shortcuts that I used. The only one was the custom trigger I mentioned, and I showed the setup screen. All it does is load the currently selected item into Quicksilver.

    Basically, create a trigger (I use cdm esc) that uses the Current Selection Proxy Object. (if you followed the setup video last week, you saw where I enabled the Proxy Objects in the Catalog, under Quicksilver). It doesn’t matter when the 2nd pane is set to in the trigger, because most likely you’ll choose something different when you use it.

    If you don’t want to create/use the trigger, simply select the file(s) you want to load into Quicksilver, invoke Quicksilver, and then hit cmg g – this achieves the same result.

  8. Just curious, when I go through the same exercise I don’t see the preview of the image in the command window, just the standard icon for preview. I am also using the bezel view, is it a quicksilver seting that gives the image preview?

  9. rangi –
    In Quicksilver prefs, go to the Appearance section (should be 3rd from top)
    make sure that “load previews” is checked. That should be the one you’re looking for.

    Though I’ve got all three of those checked – Superfluous effects, load icons, and load previews. so just check em all! :)

  10. You should cover “load previews” and so on in the screencast :)
