Need Help With Screen Captures – Couple Quick Questions

by 7 comments
Hello everybody!

I am wanting to set up some screen capture videos on my niche and sell it as a download or DVD.

I have a great web guy who will take care of all of that but my questions are as follows:

1. When I am recording the screen capture, am I speaking at the same time? Or do I need to record everything that is happening on my screen with the software and then narrate it afterwards?

2. What is the best microphone to use when you are doing a screen capture? I am wanting to use a USB headset to do the recording. Is this sufficient?

3. When I am doing the voice recording (or narration?) does the screen capture software do the job or do I need to get a specific software for recording my voice?

4. How would I go about burning a screen capture video from my computer to a DVD? What software would I need to use?

5. Do you even think people would purchase a DVD of screen captures to watch on their tv’s?

Thanks in advance!

    1. With Camtasia you can do both at the same time.

    2. Don't know.

    3. Q.1

    4. Burn Your Videos Into DVD (Google "How To Burn Videos to DVD")

    5. If it is worth the purchase. They'll buy it. But, you'll need to put a lot of content though, if you are selling DVD. I might be wrong on this one.

    I've had excellent results with a 40 dollar USB headset microphone, I just let Camtasia control the levels and it does a fine job.

    Between Camtasia and Windows Movie Maker (included with XP and Vista) you should have enough software to create your DVD's.

      There is a free alternative to Camtasia called Camstudio.

      It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but it does a basic video and audio capture perfectly well. It's what I used to make all the captures on, if you want to see a sample of the output.

      1: Camtasia

      2: USB Microphone

      3: Camtasia

      4: Computers usually have inbuilt burning software. If not, go grab
      any burning software off the net - paid or free.

      5: Yes. Infact, people can also watch them on their PC's. Their choice.
