When you use screen capture to record a video, you will essentially be recording that video directly from your screen. However there are various other factors that need to be taken into account if you want to ensure that your video matches the vision that you have for it.

With the right screen capture software, you should be able to control all aspects of the video that you record. That is certainly the case when you use Movavi Screen Capture Studio, and it will give you the means to:

  • Set the recording area

Start by deciding whether you want to capture the entire screen, or just a particular part of it. If you want to just capture a part of the screen you can use one of the preset sizes or manually resize the capture frame in Movavi Screen Capture Studio.

  • Select the audio source

In most cases you’ll want to record the system audio, but sometimes you may want to also (or only) record audio from a microphone or some other device. In Movavi Screen Capture Studio that is as easy as clicking a single button to set the audio source.

  • Capture keyboard and mouse actions

If you’re creating a video where you’re guiding the audience through a particular procedure on a PC then it might help to let them ‘see’ what keys you’re pressing on your keyboard. One of the features of Movavi Screen Capture Studio will display the keys that you press on screen, and it can also highlight your mouse cursor to make it more visible too.

  • Change the frame rate

In a nutshell the frame rate determines how ‘smooth’ the playback is, and while a frame rate of 60 frames per second is normally best – you might want to change that and make it lower if you’re looking to conserve space.

While all of that you be sufficient to help you record the right kind of video, the real strength of Movavi Screen Capture Studio is in the fact that it comes with numerous other features to edit and improve videos. It is able to cut and combine video segments, enhance the video quality, apply special effects and filters, insert customizable text, and add additional audio tracks for background music or voiceovers.

To put it simply – after you’ve recorded your video using screen capture, you can use Movavi Screen Capture Studio to go over it with a fine comb and tweak it so that it turns out exactly the way that you need. If necessary, you could even cut out and ‘reshoot’ certain segments and merge them together as required. By the time you’re done – your video should look perfect.
