Using the scroll wheel in Google Earth!

The possibility of controlling Google Earth with the scroll wheel is pretty obvious for zooming in and out. It can do more however. It is possible to rotate the current view. When you hold down "Command" with the scroll wheel, it will rotate the current view.

MacGeek— How do you get those screen-videos? I know how to take a screen shot, but have never been able to find a way to take a screen-video.

Thanks

There are many programs to capture video. One of the most popular is SnapZ Pro. It works very well and it is not too expensive.

Gee, I have SnapzPro, but didn't know you could make a screenshot video.
How do you do it? I guess I better start looking at the instructions, as this will be fun.
And how to put one on my website?
