2. Screenflow Layout: - Hello, - everyone. - Welcome to video school online dot com's screen flow course. - We're talking about how to use Max Screen Flow program, - which is a great program for screen casting, - creating online courses on line tutorials. - It's just one of the best programs. - Camp Tasia is another one that I've used, - but I feel like screen flow is just as good. - And for the Mac user, - it's really intuitive and easy, - and it's perfect for beginners. - So let's Today I'm just gonna give you a program layout of screen flow. - So once you open it up, - it's gonna look similar to this. - You're not gonna have these clips over here on the right side or anything down here in the - timeline. - But first, - let's go from top to bottom, - obviously up top. - You have your menu. - You have your file menu where you can start your new recordings, - save export published to these different platforms at it. - You know you can do all sorts of things with your timeline at your video. - With this menu itself up here, - your mark marking your footage or ins and outs points of your video will get It's that - layer later you getting at text box, - annotations, - different things like that. - You can change the font, - the current ing ligature, - all sorts of things, - styles of your fonts at different actions. - Again, - these things will go over in the future. - You can check out change the view of screen flow if you wanted to be full screen etcetera, - and that's pretty much it right. - Here is your canvas, - which is where your video will show up after you have recorded it, - or once you have imported footage into the program. - Down here is your timeline, - where you will see all the different layers that you have. - Right now. - I have one text layer, - and I have a video later. - So these air video layers that I've already recorded soldiers bring one down onto my - timeline to show you how it is. - So there you have my audio and video track right there, - and then you can also bring down your screen. - Capture the screen capture that goes along with it because that's the best thing about - screen flow is that it captures not only the screen but also video and audio. - If you want, - and all those settings you can change. - There's different crop settings that will go through in the future. - Play fast forward, - rewind the timing of your layer based or of your timeline. - Down here, - you can zoom in and out of your timeline. - I think so. - And then up here on the top, - right, - This is where really, - where you're going to get into editing your content. - You have your video properties, - audio properties, - screen recording properties, - call out properties, - imitations, - text properties and then your media that you import. - And you basically use all these tools toe edit your videos and make them awesome. - So those are This is the basic layout. - I'll play through this. - You you can see audio wave forms right here, - so that's good to know. - But really, - that's pretty much it is a really simple program. - You know, - it might seem a little daunting with all these options right here, - but have specific lessons that cover each of those later on. - And in the next lesson, - we're just gonna get started with creating a new recording. - But for now, - that's about it. - If you have any questions, - please let me know. - I check out video school online dot com for more great tutorials and we'll see you next - time. - Bye 3. The Recording Process: - Hey, - what's up, - everyone? - This is Phil Avenir back with another tutorial in the screen flow course. - Today we're gonna talk about setting up our recording to actually record do our screen for - so there's a couple different options. - You just go up to filed new recording or press command. - And once you do that, - it will pop up with this dialog box where you can set up your different options. - So first you can set up your video, - what camera and you want to record from. - So I have a couple of different cameras. - I have a PhD pro Webcam nine c 9 20 or the FaceTime HD camera That just comes with my Mac - computer so I can use either of those and obviously, - right now, - I know I'm not set up, - and I don't have my lighting or anything like that. - But if you need, - you know, - if you want your video recorded, - you would want to set this up properly. - Have a nice background, - um, - and but yeah, - basically, - just choose your camera. - Audios is another one where you can choose either the built in microphone or if you have - different ones. - So the webcam that I have also has an on audio recording capability, - so it has a stereo microphone, - which is decent quality. - I also have my H four and my zoom H four n plugged in, - which is the best quality for audio recordings. - All I would choose that you can also choose to record computer audio from, - um from your computer. - So that's like if you're playing a video on your screen or there's different sound effects - , - it will actually record that for it. - If you go down here, - you can set a maximum record length, - so it will stop recording after 10 minutes if you want. - Usually I don't like I don't like having record link because if I go over that, - then I don't want it to stop Andi. - That's pretty much it. - It's gonna record your whole screen. - You can't just like partners green, - but you can edit later and zoom into a portion of your screen if you want that and then - once you're done doing setting up these settings, - you just hit this red button. - It's going to prepare to record. - It's gonna give you a countdown. - And then, - after its red done countdown, - doing its countdown it's recording and to stop you can go up and press on the right side of - your screen. - There will be a button and you press stop recording or you press command shift to So you - didn't see that this recording, - but over the top in the menu bar is the screen flow icon, - and you can click the stop button. - Once it's done, - you say where you want to. - To save you can either put in a new document or if you're creating a series of videos, - I would add it to that document. - So right now, - I'm just editing an untitled project. - But I would save it as now screen float tutorials or whatever you're doing, - and then every time you record it will save it into that project. - If you don't like your recording, - you can discard it, - or you can do that later on. - Won't you click? - OK, - it will pop up here in your media like so, - and then you can drop it down into your timeline. - So here you have it, - and then you would go ahead and edit that, - but where you aren't going do that just yet. - That's in a future lesson But that is the basics of working with screen flow and setting up - your recording. - I hope you enjoy this tutorial. - If you have any questions, - please let me know. - Otherwise we'll talk to you later. - Bye. 4. Importing Media: - everyone. - Quick tutorial here on importing footage or media into screen flow is a continuation of the - screen cloak course. - So if you're here in screen flow, - the easiest way to add media that you don't record, - such as music or some sort of video that you've already created is just by clicking this ad - media button. - And then, - for example, - I have some past exports that I could just show you. - For example, - video. - I can click it and select open, - And there it is, - it appears, - in my media been, - and then I can add it to my video itself. - Or, - if you want, - you can add J pegs or photos if you want to have photos added to your projects. - Another way to do this is just go to your finder, - find your your footage so I always use my video school online bumper I already have in this - prop project, - but I can just go ahead, - drop it down there and then use it later. - So that was your quick tutorial on how to import footage. - Hope you enjoyed it. - I hope you like this quick one. - Please check out my video school online dot com website or and my YouTube channel, - where you can like on watch some of these videos for free, - Thank you so much and have a great day. 5. Basic Editing Techniques: - everyone. - This is Philip. - Dinner with video school online dot com Bring you a great tutorial in the screen flow - course. - Today we're talking about editing our footage, - and this is probably what you've all been waiting for, - really getting into the nitty gritty of how to create great screen recordings and screen - cast. - So first I'm going to bring down a recording that I did for previous tutorial down for my - media. - Been so after you court on lot. - Your video. - It will show up as a screen recording and video if you recorded video and the audio is - attached to my video clip. - As you can see here, - I have audio waves on my video clip. - If you don't see the all your ways, - you can go up to screen flow preferences and make sure that on your timeline you have show - stereo audio wave forms selected. - I'm gonna zoom in down here. - Um, - another way to zoom in is by pressing the plus or minus keys on your keyboard. - If you have those eso basically, - the first thing I wanna do is make this video the right size. - What if you recorders your if you dio screen recording the size of your composition is - automatically going to be the size of your video, - but my screen is a 27 inch I max screen, - and equality is actually higher than typical 1920 by 10 80 HD. - So I had to use this canvas crop tool down here to make my canvas 1920 by 10 80. - So, - for example, - I could make it 12 80 by 7 20 which is also HD, - but just a lot smaller. - And this will decrease the size of the end file, - which will be easier to upload. - So if you don't need 1920 by 10 80 HD footage, - our videos, - I just used 12 80 by 7 20 And that's also the size of that my video has recorded. - So that's perfect. - But if I just want video, - But then I want to decrease the size of my video. - So the easiest way to do that I'm gonna go over some of these more in detail, - but it just to decrease the scale over here, - and then we can just grab and, - you know, - shrink these video to match the size we want. - I'm holding shift down toe lock the aspect of it. - If I don't hold shift down, - I can make it squeezed. - And I don't want that. - So I hold ship down while im decreasing the size. - Then you can just click and drag, - move them around wherever you want. - So then say you I'm just gonna get rid of See this? - Lay up here. - This is my video school online text layer. - Just gonna going to drag us off the end because I don't need that right now. - This first clip is my video school online bumper. - So I'm also going to have to decrease that size to match my new 12 80 by 7 20 screen after - the video school in online bumper finishes. - I'm just gonna move the start of my video to that point. - But see how there was, - like, - an awkward pause before I actually started talking. - I'm going to have to cut out part of the start of this video. - One way I could do that is just going to the edge. - See, - I have both of these highlighted and go to the edge and just drag. - You can drag as much as you want, - so say you just want to start your video right here in the middle. - You can drag both of these or one of them and drag it until it's basically there that it - starts there. - You can also drag the end Teoh wherever you want. - That's one way of editing your footage. - Another way is by using the trim tool. - So say you have a layer selected. - Say, - I just want to get rid of the video right here. - Then I can do H split clip options. - So that's with hot He t You can just press tne keyboard and see how it splits the clip into - two. - Then I could go forward until I want the video on again. - Delete it or press T and I could delete this part of it. - The problem with that is that our audio was actually on the attached to our video clip. - So I'm gonna undo that And I have to separate the audio from the video so I can right click - right Click this file and down below. - You can't see it right now, - but if I bring it up like that, - you can detach audio. - So now I have three layers. - One is my audio one is my video, - and one is my screen cast. - And so now if I want to just get rid of the video but not the audio, - I can do that. - Like so another way to add it is with the hot key W. - So if I have a layer selected and do trim front two scrubber, - you can do use WN E, - so W will get rid of everything before that before your timeline. - Marker for E will get rid of everything after the timeline marker. - So this is a good way, - you know, - say, - at the end of your video, - you say bye. - And then there's a few seconds of delay before you finally stop your stop the program from - recording You can go to the end, - select all and press E, - and that just quickly deletes the rest of this video and audio and screen cast, - so those are some hot keys to remember. - Remember those the tea will t will split the clip. - W will trim the front of the scrubber front to the scrubber, - and E will get rid of everything after the script scrubber. - You'll notice another little option right here, - which is to add a freeze frame. - So say you have a freeze frame on your screen cast that you want to just freeze. - So say you go right here. - You want this image to freeze for the remainder of the video or however long you can either - right click or you just go to edit and add freeze frame or press shift command f and see - down here. - It adds this free freeze frame right here. - So now this is a free spring of the image right here and now I can, - as you can see here when I'm doing, - I'm just dragging this clip afterwards and making it smaller and extending this freeze - frame however long you want until you want to go on to the next thing. - So that's a great way if you you know, - if you have something on your screen that you want to keep on longer than you you had on - the screen like say, - you have a power point and you have a slide up and you accidentally go to the next slide - before you're done talking about it. - Well, - you can just at a freeze frame of the previous slide and extended another thing that you - want to learn how to do is transitions, - So adding a transition is really easy. - You can just select your clip. - Say I want this this clip down here the video toe fade onto the screen. - I just right click the clip and either choose add starting transition at ending transition - or add starting and ending transitions. - I just want ads starring transition. - You'll notice here that this little transition icon was added to the start of the video. - I'll play through this so you can see what it looks like. - So see how the video faded onto the screen. - There's different options for the transition. - If you click this little tool icon, - you can have a bars, - Wyatt copy machine flash all sorts of things. - You know I can do it. - Page turn. - I could make it longer by going to the end of it. - And extending this skill is brought you bites shutter stock. - So there you have that, - um, - to set your preference for preferred furred dissolved so that if you just want if you - always want cross dissolves, - for example, - instead of having Teoh go in change or if you always want dip to black instead of always - having to go in and change it, - you can go up to your preferences under timeline. - In under default, - durations are under default. - Transition. - You can just select your default transition, - and it's automatically set for I think bars Swipe, - which is a kind of funky transition. - So crosses all is a good standard transition to use. - So there you have transitions. - There's lots more things that we can add to our videos, - like text and different things like that. - Different things we can do with the video up here. - But for now, - you have the basics to get you started on editing your timeline. - It's just you know now you have the basics of of trimming your your video so that you start - where you want to start, - where you end where you want and how do you separate your audio from your video and the - basics of moving around your video and Christians in the size. - And so, - for example, - just really quickly say you want your video up here at the start, - but then at the end, - you want it to be down in the bottom corner. - You could just split the clip, - Presti go to your second part of the clip and move it. - So I see here now it will jump from me. - So say there was, - like, - a screen where you wanted it. - A big video. - You say you want this where you're saying something important and the screen doesn't matter - . - And then it jumps to a screen where something on screen matters. - This is a good way to do that. - Thank you so much for watching. - I know this was a little bit longer tutorial today, - but I hope you four with me. - And, - uh, - thank you so much for watching and for supporting me in taking this class. - If you have any questions, - please let me know otherwise I will see you in the next lesson by 6. Video Properties: - Hey, - everyone, - welcome back to another lesson in the screen flow course. - Today we're talking about the video properties and using some advanced techniques to do - some cool things with your videos. - So right here. - You know, - I created this sort of set up this layout with my screen cast just using the video - properties tab. - So this is original how it looks, - you know, - just basic. - With my screen cast in the background, - my video and lower corner. - This is like a pretty standard screen calf. - Not bad. - Not great. - Um, - just fine. - Um, - OK, - so over here in the videos tab, - you'll notice some different options. - So before we learned how to move around our videos using the controls on your actual canvas - , - but we can actually play with it, - you know, - with the scale and position modules here say you just want to show part of your screen. - You can increase the scale and move it around to where you want to show something like that - . - You can also change the position by plugging in a position right here that's a little bit - more difficult. - And then you could change the rotation. - So you have ax rotation like So it rotates along the X axis. - Why? - Rotation, - which rotates around the y axis and Z rotation, - which rotates around the Z axis. - A pastie drops a pastie brings it up. - You can also crop if you want to crop part of your image. - Um, - if this bar slider doesn't go above 200 so you're gonna have to type in a number if you - want more than 200. - So you want to get rid of 1000 pixels from the right and the left? - You can do that. - Okay, - so then you have a reflection which you saw here in both of these videos. - Yeah, - this reflection you have a shadow. - If you want to add a shadow, - you can add a shadow like so you can change the settings, - you know, - make it more or less offset. - You can drop the opacity. - You could increase the blur size to make it a little bit more blurry. - I like it when the shadows a little bit more blurry. - It looks a little bit more natural, - even dropped the past. - Eating like 35 or something like that may not even don't offset it so much, - you know, - I think that looks a little bit more natural on better. - You can change the color of the shadow as well. - You can also play with the color controls. - So this is like the saturation. - So you can make it black and white If you want zero saturation or go up to 400%. - Obviously this looks a little wacko with my face. - Just increase the size so you can see it, - you know, - But so you want to just increase a little bit, - you can type in 110%. - Yeah, - that's makes it a little bit more colorful and not oversaturated. - Brightness You can increase, - decrease contrast again. - Make it a little bit more contrast, - E You know, - contrast is the cool thing to add to your videos if you want. - So may something No. - 110 or so might look at 120 video filters. - These air if you have different filters, - Such a Yeah, - You have different filters on your computers? - No, - such as glass lozenge. - This is going Teoh ad a little piece to it where you can basically it's like, - uh, - it basically is like a a bubble in your video you can do different one all sorts of - different ones. - You know, - You want just the color. - You know, - Hugh style eyes, - Crystal Isler video, - all sorts of different video filters there. - And the last thing is this ad video action, - But, - um, - but we're gonna talk about that in the next lesson. - But first, - let's just do what I did with this video with this part of the video. - So first thing is to make them the right size. - So using these properties, - I'm just going to decrease the size something like 26%. - Drop it over here. - You'll notice that I could make the screen bigger or smaller by using the wheel on your on - your, - uh, - your mouth if you have one. - Um, - OK, - so then I wanted because the size of this screen cast I'm just going to decrease that, - like, - 25 or less slightly 21. - And you also notice that when you're moving things around your screen, - these yellow lines pop up and these really help you a line. - Things you know, - make them centered, - you know, - keep them aligned as really nice. - All right, - So first things I want to add a reflection to both of these. - So something like a 40 reflection, - 40% reflections. - Nice. - Then I want to rotate them. - So this one I want to turn in. - So I'm going to rotate y rotation like 20. - And for this one, - I'm gonna do negative 20. - So they both can I, - like, - turn in towards each other, - This one? - I'm going to crop to make it a square. - I'm just gonna crop in the right side. - Something like that. - The left Seidel type in like, - 300. - You like to 75 like that. - And there you have. - This nice looking video now looks pretty much the same. - I just have to move it around, - make it perfect. - But, - you know, - that's kind of a cool set up to have for your videos. - It's a little bit more unique. - So those are the video properties we played with scale, - position, - rotation capacity, - cropping reflection, - shadows, - color controls, - video filters. - And in the next lesson, - we're gonna do an ad video action. - But in which logic to zoom in to a portion of the screen within your video and so that you - can show something close up without cutting to it. - It actually zooms in. - So look forward to that lesson in the next tutorial. - Have a great day and we'll see next time. - Bye. 7. Video Actions: - Hey, - everyone, - welcome back to another tutorial today. - We're gonna do a quick one talking about adding a video action. - So what is the video action? - It's basically a change, - some sort of change in the video and doing that during the video while play. - So it's kind of like a transition, - in a sense. - So for example, - say for this part of the video, - I'm showing this list of subjects and software programs that you could learn on skill feed - . - But it's kind of small, - so say, - but right here, - it's fine. - Once I get to this screen, - I want to zoom into this so I can add a video action. - So go to your clicking on your screen recording, - say, - add video action and down here as this little yellow block. - What that means is that prior to this video, - it's gonna have these video properties afterward. - Words it's going to have these video properties. - They're the same right now, - but let me show you. - So I want to increase the size that scale to something like 115 or something to really zoom - in on this list. - So now I go before this video action and play it. - I'm just gonna get rid of this Audie it really quick show you more about that later. - And now it zooms into this screen right here. - Then after this plays a little bit like this and say, - I want to go back to the original settings. - Aiken, - go add video action and then go back here to find my settings. - The scale was 50% and just go 50% and move it back up to the original position. - So zooms in, - zooms out, - say later on I want to zoom into the same position. - I can actually copy this a select and copy it, - and it zooms into the same position. - If I want to change it up and then say I want to zoom out again to the same position I can - copy and paste this so zooms out. - If I go between here and shame to the settings, - it will change it up. - So say I wanna decrease the opacity for some reason and then increase the contrast or - decrease the contrast. - Then it will do that as well so I can decrease contrast, - increase the capacity or whatever. - And so those are the types of things that you can do with a video action. - Basically, - Prive. - The easiest way to do it I'm just going to delete all these is to find the spot where you - want to zoom in or do whatever action. - Add that video action. - Go to the end of that segment. - Do you add video accent again? - Then move your scrubber between and change it. - Change the video properties to whatever you want and now, - before it there, - it's at 50% scale. - Then it increases of 107 and afterwards it goes back to 50% of the original. - Thank you so much for watching this tutorial. - This is on how to add video actions to your screen flow videos. - Thank you for watching. - Check out video school online dot com for more, - and we'll see next time. - By 8. Audio Actions: - Hey, - what's up? - This is Philemon Air with video school online dot com talking to you about screen flow and - the audio properties today. - So last tutorial we checked out all the video properties, - we learned about adding video actions, - and now we're gonna look at the audio properties tab. - So down here you will see different options. - So you have volume. - This will basically just increase decrease your volume. - Ducking is a very interesting tool to use. - Say, - you want to add a music track to your video. - Let me see really quickly if I I don't even think I have really any video tracks on my - computer right now is like a brand new computer. - So what I'm going to do is just use this bumper as an example. - So say you have video track and you place it beneath your audio track sailing a voice over - and this is good if your voice you kind of start and stop. - So I'm just gonna trim this audio and just put a little pause in the middle as if I pause - is talking. - And then you add ducking to this layer. - So say you had ducking and I'm just gonna make that 10%. - I'm gonna add this to this part, - too. - The audio from this video, - this audio track or video tracker, - whatever is below will decrease to 10% when you're talking. - So let's play it Web building, - Cell Twitter, - you need. - So this audio down here is a lot quieter than if there wasn't a video track that had - ducking on it, - hear how loud that is. - But now with this track, - having ducking is really quiet, - actually, - so that's a really cool effect that you can use if you have, - um, - you know, - if you have music or background music or something like that. - All right, - so I'm just going to put those clips back together, - like so. - Just simply another option is to mute audio. - If you just want to get rid of your completely, - you can do that. - You could smooth volume levels. - And so this will is the process where it basically tries to make your levels the same - throughout the entire clip. - So this is probably more so if you're outside or there's lots of different noises and not - just you talking, - but it also might help if you're doing a screen cast and you play a video or there's some - audio on your computer or something that's really loud. - It will decrease that that all your levels are the same. - All your volume, - the volumes of all your tracks on the same level. - Mics. - Input to mono. - This isn't a bad idea to use just because if you are recording your sound with stereo - microphone, - depending if you have a recorder of my USB microphone or a webcam with the stereo mike. - Sometimes the left and right channels are different, - and when you're listening to it with headphones, - that might sound a little funky, - so you can go ahead and mix the input to monitor. - If you want, - you can also add different effects. - So if I click the song and no presence is just a basic, - uh, - effect that it just gives your voice mawr boom. - There's not really a term and just give them more presence. - That makes it stronger, - more full, - and it's really hard to hear, - but I can try to play it for you. - And but if I do change it to something like large room, - you'll notice that it sounds like I'm in a heart room cathedral. - It adds an echo reverb to it. - That makes me sound like I'm in an cathedral. - You can increase decrease the amount. - Sometimes I add presence. - And you know, - you are students taking some courses. - You can tell a little bit. - You know, - if you were actually here, - you can see that adds a little bit to your audio. - You can also remove background noise. - This is a good one. - You know, - if you have, - if you're recording in a situation with humming, - you know, - air conditioner. - If you have a streetcars outside, - this can really help remove the background noise. - You'll notice when I increased it like 80%. - It actually really helps. - Compared to win, - it's zero. - So this is something and taken to count. - One thing I will note about this is that it adds a lot of time during the export. - So if you're recording 10 20 minute lectures is gonna add, - make your export really long, - so you just gotta be careful about that. - And then there's audio filter similar to the video filters. - We have audio filters. - Um, - that if you have them on your computer already there's different ones. - I'm not gonna go into this because it's it's kind of more advanced, - but you can edit, - you know, - the equalization. - You can cut out all the low frequencies or the high frequencies at reverb, - but that's a little bit more advanced. - And for a different kind of production. - You're not going to really want to add those to these types of videos. - The last thing is to add an audio action, - and I'm just gonna add this in this tutorial because you already know how to do so with the - video actions. - So this is if you want to change something about your audio property. - So I'm just gonna take off these properties, - say, - for a segment. - I want to increase the volume I can do add audio action. - And if I wanted to increase for the the the rest of this this track, - I can just go ahead and increase and you'll see here it will increase its on. - But say I want it to go ahead and decrease. - I can set another audio action and then go ahead and decrease it back to 100. - This also will help if there's, - you know, - a loud noise or you know something happened with the background where you talk loud for - some reason, - you can decrease the volume just for that word or that sentence or whatever you need. - And you don't have to do the smooth volume levels for that, - just at a volume action audio action. - And again, - you can do that for you can add effects within this period or remove background noise for - that period. - But really, - I would just stick to changing the volume with audio actions. - Thank you so much for watching. - I hope you enjoyed this lesson. - If you have questions, - please let me now. -

Screen Recording Properties: - Hey, - everyone, - welcome back to another lesson in the screen flow basics course. - Today we're talking about the screen Recording Properties tab in our editing window. - So if you click on your screen recording, - so there's the background. - You have different options under a screen reporting properties, - so the 1st 1 is you can show or make disappear your amounts. - Actually, - this is a really cool option. - Um, - basically somehow reads like the code of the computer and is able to get rid of your mouse - even though it recorded it. - You can also increase or decrease the size of your mouth. - So so you want a really big so that people can see it better. - You can increase it up, - too, - I think, - if you type in. - Yeah, - you even do you know 10,000% if you want. - Wow, - it's a lot, - but you know, - 500% good. - You know, - a mouse that you can easily see. - Another thing that you can add a click of back. - So radar, - check this out when you click. - It adds this. - See this red radar kind of thing, - so that kind of helps draw attention to the mouse clicks or invert will just invert the - colors of your mouse itself when you collects us. - Yeah, - it kind of makes it the negative colors right there. - So those are just ways to draw attention to your actions. - You can also change the mass itself. - So if you want, - you know, - a circle or square or dark circle, - you can actually do that, - and you can even add your own image. - So if you wanna add an image of a duck or a baseball, - anything like that, - you can do that. - Gain decrease the opacity of your mouth. - If you want, - you can add the sound of a click if you want. - You just have to add, - you know, - choose a sound from your library, - but you just add a sound on your click. - So let's see that. - Well, - I guess I would have to add a sound first, - so I don't have that sound chosen, - but you can do that. - And then the last and private. - Most important is to show keystrokes or not. - This is really important, - especially when you're doing tutorials that have to do with, - like, - uh, - showing how to use the software program or something like that. - Let me try. - Let me just show you really quick. - I'm just gonna do it quick recording. - I'm not gonna record video. - Just going to record, - um, - the background. - So I'm recording. - It's going to take five seconds or so to start and then say I'm using after facts or - something like that and I'm typing on the computer, - you know something, - And I here's my outline of my classes, - and now I should get some good clicks in there in the recording. - So basically, - why recording it is saving all the the clicks and things that you dio So say I bring this - down here onto my timeline, - and then I just got make sure that this is the right size and then I add go to my extreme - referring properties and show keystrokes. - See how now it adds this little highlighted box right here? - That show, - you know, - here's the interest. - That symbol shows a d. - That letters that I was typing is really important. - If you know, - I have some aftereffects courses where I'm pressing command shift f or, - you know, - tab up, - down or whatever. - It shows all of those key strokes and you can change the size. - You know, - you make this bigger. - If you want to be bigger or smaller, - you can change the position of it if you want. - You know, - put it right in middle or whatever you want, - really. - And you could also only choose Teoh do modifier keys instead of all keys. - So that's like if you're using command option, - shift those sorts of things. - So this is the show keystrokes option. - The last thing is at screen recording action, - and again, - that's just the same thing as a video and audio action. - If you want to basically increase the mouse at a certain point, - you can do that. - So say I want to No. - From this point in my timeline to this point, - I want to increase the mouth size to 500% and change it to a slight circle on the computer - . - So there you have it in the middle of my video. - It changes from mouth to a circle, - so that's kind of cool. - Those are the screen recording properties. - If you have any questions, - please let me know otherwise. - Have a great day and I will see you in the next lesson by 10. Call Out Properties: - Hey, - everyone, - welcome back to screen Flow 101 Today we're talking about Call out actions or call out - properties, - and this is one of the most important lessons to really use in your screen cast. - To make sure that we're talking about is clear. - You can really highlight certain features of your screen cast this way and before we talked - about video using a video action to zoom in to part of a screen. - But the Call Out Properties tab allows you to do some really cool stuff with your screen - cast, - so let me just show you what it's capable of doing. - So I have my screen casts here of me showing this website skill feed, - and it's really hard to see. - Actually, - you would have to be full screen 10 80 p quality. - But even better if I could just zoom in, - you know, - are just show where my mouse is clicking. - Well, - you can do that under Klopp properties of you go to add to call out it automatically does - this. - It highlights your mouse, - and it makes everything around it dark. - That's the basic, - uh, - you know, - that's how it is automatically you can change these properties, - though. - So right now we have mouse cursor. - We can change the opacity of the background. - We can change the blur of what our mouths on or of the background itself. - So you blur the background. - If you want that, - you could zoom into your spot so you can really see. - Then you can also increase the circle. - So you're really seeing what it's capable of on seeing what your mouse is looking at. - You can add a outline. - You can add a shadow if you want. - You know, - im feathering to your shadow. - If you like that and you can also, - you know, - increase you can make it, - um, - zoom like fade into this. - So instead of just cutting to it like this, - you can build into it. - So you know, - you start and then you end with a 32nd transition. - That just makes it look a little bit nicer up here. - Under this highlight option, - you can change it from mouse cursor. - You can change it the forget ground window, - which will change it to basically whatever is in the foreground, - or you can change whatever layers in the foreground, - or you can change FREEHAND. - Which is a good option if you, - you know, - if you just want Teoh, - do it on your own. - So I'm gonna take off this background blur, - and there's two options up here. - You have a circle and you countries the size of this circle. - So say you want to really just highlight one line something like that. - You know, - you can do that. - Or you could do a square where you, - you know, - draw square around the part that you want to zoom into and means. - And then, - you know, - you just leave it on that spot and you could go down to your timeline, - zoom in and basically extend this period of time until you're out of this area and you want - to zoom back out to the full screen. - You could copy and paste thes these call outs if you want, - so that you can use similar ones later in the video. - Um, - but really, - it's just a great way to highlight where your mouse is clicking, - especially if you're teaching software or it's not just like a lecture or a power point in - the background. - If you're really showing them how to do something, - it would be really good to really highlight certain points in your video. - It's just adds a little bit to your video. - Makes it more engaging and it makes it clear for your students. - So that is the call out property. - I hope you enjoyed this lesson. - If you have any questions, - please let me know otherwise I'll see you in the next lesson. - Talk to you later. 11. Adding Annotations: - Hey, - everyone, - welcome back to the screen. - Flow one A. - One course Today we're going to be talking about the annotations properties tab. - There's just another way to highlight certain parts of your video, - Um, - or whatever you want to do with different shapes in colors. - So if you go up here and you click on add annotations, - clip on this new layer to your video. - Once you have that new layer, - just make sure you're scrub your scrubber. - Your timeline marker is over this and that it's selected. - Then go ahead and select one of these options. - You have an arrow align, - a solid square, - a on outlined square and outlawing circle so we'll try and circle. - You can, - um, - then go ahead and right onto your screen. - Say you want to create a circle. - If you hold down shift, - you will create a perfect circle. - Otherwise, - if I'm not holding shift, - you can see that it squeezes. - Or, - you know I could make a noble I'll just go ahead and make a noble like So once you've - created it, - you can change the color. - So just hit the color tab right there. - It brings up this color window jeans the color to whatever you want. - Try like magenta. - You can change the opacity of it changed the thickness on shadow. - I had an outline if you want. - And yeah, - this is basically a great way to apps on creating another one. - So if you have it selected and you go back up here, - you can add more shapes to your figure. - Um, - if you want to move it around, - go ahead and click off of it clicked back on it. - Now you can move it around, - so this is a good way. - If you want to create cool titles, - you can add, - um, - you can add, - you know, - text inside of here. - We got motion to this if you want. - So go ahead and go to video properties with the selected. - Go to the start of the clip and or a little bit in and do add video action. - Zoom in here on the timeline so you can see. - So after this point, - I wanted to be on the screen right here. - I go before here and move it off the screen. - You'll see now that it flies onto the screen using that video action that I just added, - and we can have it fly off the screen. - So at a video action, - make sure scrubbers on or after this video action and drop it down. - So there it drops down. - So those are the annotations properties. - Let's just do another one just to show you what else we can do, - we can do a an arrow. - So say we want to, - you know, - point to whatever I'm clicking on. - They changed the color so that it contrasts with what the background is. - You make a little bit thicker and there you have it. - We can add a transition to this. - If you go to that one side or the other and right, - click and then go down, - Lower says. - As during transition, - you couldn't see that. - But, - um, - there it will fade onto this green annotations. - Great way to create engaging videos. - I think you should use them when you're creating your videos just to make them pop out some - more just to make your videos pop, - look better and get more. - In the end, - get more viewers. - Thank you so much for watching. - If you have any questions, - please let me know. - Otherwise I will see you in the next lesson by 12. Adding Text: - Hey, - everyone, - welcome back to screen Flow 101 Today we're going to talk about text properties and how to - add text to our videos. - Texas is another great way to add engagement, - to clarify or just to add titles or anything that you want add your your your or anything - like that in your videos. - I mean, - I've created this video bumper on my own in after effects, - but you can actually create, - you know, - a intro titles with the text properties. - And let's just do something like that. - I'm just gonna move this video bumper over here to add a text box or a text property. - You just go click this on text box button, - double click the text, - and on this type in my brand, - my title and then with all these properties, - you can change the font. - If you want to change it, - do Helvetica. - You can change the font size. - You can treat the font color at outline solid color, - etcetera and then with all these the this basically becomes its own layer. - And with this layer, - you can add any sort of video action so you can either at right click in had transitions. - Or you can add a video action. - Have it zoom into the screen. - You know, - if you want to make it, - start out at scale zero. - Have a zoom in. - You can do that. - Or you can, - um I'm just gonna move this video action to the side. - You can have it coming from the side like this. - So before you set your position over here off the screen afterwards, - you put it to the center of the screen. - And, - yeah, - so those are text. - That's the text properties box. - It's pretty basic. - You can at an image, - Phil, - if you want to add an image. - So let's just pick an image. - I have see this image from angels game that I went to and you can add an image in that text - box of yours could change it to whatever you want. - Uh, - changed its original size, - etcetera. - If you want a backdrop or just want a solid text box color, - you can do that as well. - You want green text box? - That's great. - Make a little bit smaller. - Something like that. - That's pretty cool. - Awesome. - Well, - thank you so much for watching this video. - I hope you learned a lot about adding text to your your, - um, - videos. - If you have any questions, - though, - please let me know and I will get back to you as soon as possible. - Have a great day and we'll talk to you soon. - Bye. 13. Exporting from Screenflow: - So you've created your webcast and you're ready to export it. - You're ready to post it online, - get thousands of viewers and start making income, - doing whatever you want to do with them, - and you don't know where to go from here. - Well, - first you have to. - You export your video, - and it's actually really easy to do. - So once you're done, - you've done all your edits, - added all your text, - all your annotations, - everything. - Basically, - all I have to do is go to file export. - They have these options where you can choose to publish to straight to YouTube or published - a video which aren't bad ideas. - You just have to authorize your account. - It can publish straight to those those places if you like, - But I like the idea of exporting to a file so that you can save it onto your computer. - Use it later in whatever fashion you want, - whether you want to post online if you want to share it with a friend, - if you want to use it a live presentation or anything like that so that you go press the - expert button or press command E. - This brings up this dialog box, - which gives you all the options. - You can choose where you want to export to, - and then you can choose a preset so preset you can have these different ones. - You know, - they have a high quality web, - one low quality web specifically prefer for iPad, - iPhone, - Apple TV, - etcetera. - And this is great if you you know you don't. - I If you know specifically that this is the only place your video is gonna show. - But I like giving the very best quality that I can get. - And that is by this lossless method. - So by clicking lossless your creating the full quality export of your screen cast Now the - file is going to be larger than your typical file if you're exporting as iPad or iPhone or - something like that. - But this makes it a lot easier to, - you know, - use in the future when everything is HD and once you selected lossless, - you can customize it. - So under video settings, - you'll see that the compression type is animation. - You don't need to do animation. - Animation is, - you know, - 100% the best quality. - I just use a 264 which is a good quality, - good compression type for uploading online because the size of the file actually isn't too - big, - so you can set the frame rate. - I usually just leave it at current under here compressor for quality. - I usually choose best, - so I just slide this slaughter up to best encoding. - I use best quality unless you have a slower computer and you can't stand waiting for it to - export, - you can choose faster and code data rate. - If you want, - you can restrict it to a certain data, - and this will also keep the file size down. - If you restrict to like 8000 that's good for 1920 by 10 80 HD footage 5000 kilobytes. - A second is good for 12 80 by 7 20 But once you have all yours compression settings, - just click OK for sound. - You can either keep it at linear PCM or a C is good. - Or if you're using another one of these options, - that's fine, - but these air fine. - You good with these moving settings, - just click OK and click export. - It will export. - Save it to your files and that's all you need to do. - That's it. - Thank you so much for watching I hope you learned a lot. - If you have any questions, - please let me know. - Otherwise I will talk to you later. - Have a great day.
