4 5 Points to Consider Before Recording

  1. Clean and prepare your screen. Unnecessary apps and programs should not be running. Clean up your desktop, leaving just the apps and windows open that you intend to display during your screen recording.
  1. Disable alerts. Before you record your screen, turn off all notifications, emails, applications, and so on.
  1. Make sure your microphone is in working order. Before you begin recording, make sure to check your audio levels. Perform a 15-30 second narration test, then check the volume levels to make sure the microphone was turned on or chosen, which is especially crucial if you have multiple microphones.
  1. Keep a steady pace. Don’t rush your voice or movements on the screen.
  1. Put it into practice. If you can practice it, go ahead and do it. Having a screenplay or outline may be really beneficial.

Overall, we think Camtasia by Techsmith is a great tool to have in your video-editing arsenal. Camtasia is an excellent location for novices to dip their toes into the realm of video editing, even if it isn’t as robust as other video editing applications. Camtasia’s screen capturing capability is unparalleled and the finest in the market for generating software lesson videos, even for seasoned experts.
