Create video presentations

I recorded my first video presentation and demo using the screen recording and video editing software called Camtasia Studio for Windows.

It’s a great product that makes it easy to create videos that includes demos.  They also have a nice list of tutorials.

They offer a fully functional 30-day trial.  Here are my favorite features:

  • Automatically zooms and pans
  • Can have video of yourself
  • Records your screen
  • Formats for YouTube
  • Adjusts from your screens resolution to the videos
  • Easily edit out parts you don’t want
  • Makes sounds louder and evens it out
  • Can add pop-up words afterwards (callouts)
  • Can pause recording, or save and come back later

You want to use a good microphone, and what I found works real well is Scosche Increased Dynamic Range Noise-Isolation Earphones with tapLINE II Remote and Mic.

You may want to make a few setting changes on your PC for improved recording: Go to Sound -> Recording -> Properties -> Levels -> FrontMic (100) and Microphone Boost (+20).  Also check the boxes for Noise Suppression and Acoustic Echo Cancellation.
