How to make a screencast in 6 easy steps

1. Create a plan and a script.

You have the first few seconds to grab and capture the attention of the audience. From the beginning of the video, they need to know that they need this screencast right now. Plan your video to attract your viewers instantly. This is a blueprint for a future tutorial: where to start, what to present in the middle, and how to finish. Make sure you use meaningful words when creating your script. Compete each word for a place in the script. If a word does not help the viewer understand or move towards the goal of the video, consider removing it. A short script is easy to understand.

2. Select a microphone

For voice acting, a headset or built-in laptop microphone is invalid. Recordings may include background sounds such as hissing, cracking or echoes. When screencasting, use a separate microphone. A microphone isolation shield cuts out the echoes and mutes other sounds.

3. Check your screen recording software.

It is always recommended that you check your screen recording software before you start your actual recording. Make a short video and test it to understand when recording starts and what is captured.

4. Set up the recording studio

Select a moderate space for recording. In a huge room, your voice will be widened by the walls. Close all windows and switch off all electronics, including phones, computers, fans and other appliances. Check to see if your chair squeaks. If the room is empty the sound will be hollow, as if you are in the bathroom.

5. Get ready to record your voice

You must read the text lightly and reliably when recording a voiceover. Do some rehearsals before reading and recording the script aloud many times. It is important to use the microphone properly when recording. It should not be too far from your mouth, as it will pick up more ambient noise, or it should not be too close, as it will pick up unwanted mouth sounds and increase decibels. If you maintain the correct posture, your voice will sound stronger and more expressive.

6. Create a screencast

Remove any unwanted objects from the shot before recording.

Pop-ups and messaging notifications can be turned off.

Increase your screencast resolution.

Record voice and screen separately.

Unwanted video portions should be deleted.
