Solutions For Recording Your Desktop & Creating Picture-In-Picture Videos

filmGetting Fancy
With Video!

Here’s a question I received about how I shoot my training videos….

Question from William,

“Hey Kim, can you guide me to a location where I can see how to create a video which allows others to see what I am navigating on while my picture is at the corner. I believe you would say give a presentation on “How To Show” my navigation on a platform and also have my picture exposed in the lower right corner or just keep my voice talking while I navigate. Thanks”

My reply….

When we do a video that shows our active desktop it’s called a “ScreenCast” style video (different from a “Talking Head” type video).

There’s a number of ways to record your screen and audio such as Jing, SnagIt 11, http://www.screenr.com/ etc. All at different price ranges.

Here’s an example of one of my picture-in-picture ScreenCast videos:

The only software that will ALSO record your webcam and put it in the bottom right corner the way my videos are done is Camtasia (ScreenFlow for Mac MIGHT but I can’t promise that).

I use Camtasia extensively for everything from my training videos to recording webinars. However, it’s not cheap but you can often find a used copy or slightly older copy (like version 6 rather than 7, don’t go all the way back to version 4 though, as somewhere in there that feature was not yet created) on eBay if you do not want a new license with support.

Camtasia is a critical, key piece of software in my business and I’m repeatedly glad I purchased it!

Hope that helps!
