Technology in general has made our lives so much easier than ever before. With the advancements which it has brought we have been able to make tutorials and explanations so much easier. When it comes to screen recording, you are able to make a boring presentation so much more intriguing while grasping the attention of your audience. So with this in mind, today we are going to be taking a look at some of the best screen recording tools available and how you can get your hands on them.
When it comes to putting together a video tutorial, there are a few different solutions that need to be considered.
Using Free Online Screen Recorder
The first part of the recording process is to get your hands on a screen recorder. My recommendation for this is to use the free Apowersoft Online Screen Recorder. The biggest benefit of using this recorder is that no installation is needed and therefore you don’t have to worry about a program taking up even more space on your hard drive. The online application itself is not an intensive one and allows you to easily record your screen without having to deal with any complications.
To use this online application, simply visit their website and when you’re ready to begin recording, click on the “Start Recording” button. Upon doing this, you will be taken through a guide on how to use the screen recorder as well as some important information regarding it.
After doing this, your browser will launch the software which is necessary and a user interface will be shown. With this, you are able to selectively decide the section of your screen which you want to be recorded. Not only this, but you are able to record audio on top of recording your video, a win-win.
Being able to record audio is crucial to producing a high quality video tutorial as it doesn’t only make things easier for you, the producer, but it prevents your audience from having to read everything from the video.
Lastly, quality is one of the highest priorities when it comes to recording your screen and due to this, with Apowersoft’s Online Screen Recorder you are able to record your video as high as 1080p.
Now, if you are happy with this screen recording tool but you’re looking for more, then a paid version of this tools is available. Screen Recorder Pro is slightly different and is a program rather than an online application, although it allows you to gain full control over all of your recordings. Record in high qualities, in a variety of formats, and you are even able to edit your recordings with a built-in editor.
Utilizing Video Editor
If the screen recorder that you have chosen does not come with a built-in video editor, don’t worry! There are several free video editors out there and the one which I recommend most is the “Windows Live Movie Maker” editor. This program is perfect for video producers who are just getting themselves off their feet and are looking to make a name for themselves.
It offers all of your basic video editing tools while also allowing you to customize your recording to truly make it yours.
Now, although I suggest this program to those who are just starting off if you are a professional level video producer, I recommend a program which is much higher up. Sony Vegas is one of the most loved programs among the video producer community for the simple reason that it actually does provide you with all of the tools to make a great video.
With the Help of Microsoft PowerPoint
Lastly, after editing your recording in your video recording and finalizing it, my suggestion would be to throw it on to Microsoft PowerPoint and prepare it for your presentation. Luckily, Microsoft PowerPoint allows you to easily incorporate videos and images into your presentation and therefore it is perfect for making a fantastic presentation.
So, with all of the above steps taken into consideration, you are now able to create a completely hassle-free video tutorial without spending hours upon hours of recording, editing, and preparing.
