In this tutorial, we create a screen recording in "real time" to show an imagined user how to format text in Microsoft® Word. Once we have created the recording, we will explain how to use ScreenCorder's controls to navigate through the recording. You will also find out how to use the visual display to identify a particular frame very precisely. This is a very useful feature with many applications. One of them is to ensure the smoothest possible transition between frames when cutting out a section of the recording.
Here we show how to save a recording as a ScreenCorder project. Although optional, saving the recording as a ScreenCorder project gives you the extra flexibility to make changes later so that you can create your recording in several steps. With a ScreenCorder project you can:
Saving the project also allows you to keep different versions of it by duplicating the original version.
This tutorial demonstrates some of the editing features offered by ScreenCorder:
The new ScreenCorder 5 Multimedia Catalog lets you enhance your screen recordings very easily by adding to them still images, text bubbles, arrows, magnifiers or animated objects, which you can then customize as required via their Properties dialog. This tutorial shows you how to insert still images into your recording to organize it in sections, and how to place a magnifier on a given area of the frame to let the user view it in more detail.
ScreenCorder now lets you create and insert quizzes at key points of your recordings so that you can assess the level of understanding of your viewers or obtain their feedback on the material presented in your video. This tutorial (the first of 3 covering quiz creation) explains how quizzes are constructed. Note that recordings containing quizzes must be exported as Flash videos (SWF) and can be uploaded as SCORM 1.2 packages on any SCORM 1.2 compatible LMS server (Learning Management System).
In the final quiz tutorial, you will see how to define actions that depend on the answers given by the user, how to communicate the results to the user via a score card and optionally, how to forward the results to others via e-mail. You will also see how to use markers to redirect the user to a different section of the recording depending on his or her answers.
As well as letting you set markers, ScreenCorder 5 allows you to tag particular frames of the recording, with a view to exporting them as snapshots. In this tutorial, you will see how to define snapshot points and how to export the snapshots as bitmaps, either as single files, or embedded in a preformatted Word document, complete with chapter headings, legends, footers and page numbers.
