Here are a few tips for recording a high-quality screenshot suitable for use in your video production.
Ensure that your screen resolution is at least 1920×1080 (Full HD). This is the minimum resolution you should record your content looks it’s best.
For screen-capture software we recommend TechSmith Camtasia
. We use this in house, so after you record your files you can just send us the raw .camrec file for us to process. Otherwise, please output a high quality .mp4. (If you don’t already own Camtasia, you can download a free, fully-functioning 30-day trial
The software is really easy to use, and you should be able to dive right in. If you’d like to get really in-depth with the app, check out the full length tutorial:
Capturing Webpage Screens
If you are capturing screenshots of websites in your browser, utilize the full-screen function (F11) to hide the address bar, open tabs, etc, to ensure we can utilize all available real estate on your screen.
If there is a lot of whitespace on your site, you can zoom in to make the content fill the screen by usinging the CTRL+NUM(+) shortcut key.
