How To Screen Record
Capture the contents of your screen quickly and effortlessly with VideoStudio. Making web tutorials has never been easier, and you can get set up in minutes. Perfect for small businesses or those of you setting up YouTube channels, if you can record your screen the world is your oyster. So let’s start recording a new video.
1. Install VideoStudio
To install VideoStudio video editing software on your Windows PC, download and run the installation file above. Continue following instructions on the screen to complete the setup process.
2. Open MultiCam Capture
Corel VideoStudio comes bundled with MultiCam Capture Lite, a multi-camera and screen recording software. To begin capturing your webinar video, launch MultiCam Capture from the start bar on your computer or from the shortcut within VideoStudio.
3. Define the area to record
Once you Launch MultiCam Capture you can set the parameters to capture what you are looking for. First, you need to define the area of your screen to record. You can select full screen (default at launch), a select window you have open, or a highlight to define a custom area of your screen and adjust the area manually by pulling on the edges of the frame. You can also connect an external camera, or launch your internal webcam to record 2 video streams if you want to add more personalization to your video and switch between angles or create a Picture-in-Picture effect in post-production.
4. Customize your screen recording settings
Next, we expand the settings menu to define your file name and location, audio settings, mouse click animations and more. By default, the program captures both your microphone/voiceover sound + your system audio. You can enable and disable these or connect an external microphone to record from. If you connect an external microphone, select ‘Sound Check’ to identify the device. In the settings menu, you can also identify the frame rate, choose the file format, and enable or disable mouse click animations in your recording.
5. Start Screen Recording
To begin recording your screen, press the red record button. All activities inside the specified capture area will be recorded. Screen capture starts after the countdown. You can press F10 to stop your recording or F11 to pause or resume the screen capture. Click the STOP button to finish your screen capture. The file is automatically saved to your defined folder destination.
After you are finished recording your video, you can import the file to the VideoStudio timeline to edit your video (optional). Trim video, add titles, background music and more. If you captured 2 or more video feeds, your videos will automatically be synced, and you can select what angle to show as the videos play in the Multi-Camera Editor - or create Picture-in-Picture effects.
When you are done save your video and share it online with Facebook, Twitter, your website, or through email.
