Hi there, guys should I'll be showing you how to make a video tutorial for softwaretraining.co.za hat programmes will be using will be O. B s and Windows zoom. Today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za 0.0 dot zero softwaretraining.co.za website has lots of videos about how to solve specific software problems in real use cases. New videos uploaded daily. Okay, let's start by talking quickly about Window Zoom and then we'll head over to R. B s. So by default, windows zoom should be enabled on windows and to access it, you would press the windows button with the plus key should zoom in. If it's not zoomed in by default, then just press it again. You're assuming otherwise. Windows Key plus minus will zoom out to exit. The zoom will praise Windows Key plus escape. Okay, next, let's go to O. B s should be the first result going there. But also, alternatively, put in the Ural will be jobs project dot com. Next, we will select for which operating system we want to instal for us will be Windows, but you also do get it for Mac OS and Linux. X click on the windows. We will probably bring the download prompt. Then you just click safe. And after it's done installing, then we will go over to set up. Okay, once that is done installing and he started, we'll meet you with this order configuration with we'll select the middle one optimised just for recording. I will not be streaming next. He said. Your framework to 30 frames per second next. Well, this happens. We will have to set a few settings off towards an actual settings panel. But then once this is done, we can just click here at the bottom of my settings. Okay, Next, we're going to file settings, get your output and then under recording path. This is where your video will be safe too. Recording quality. Really? The same recording format will say to him before under custom axles, settings force far start. We'll be putting in your m 00 V flags. F l a G s equals faster. So f a s t S t a r t she zoom in so he doesn't see that. Next we will go to audio your sample rate. You can set lower, but your programme will need to restart the same with a channel if you have music and leave it on stereo. If you're recording the only voice you can always say to Mona, then they stop input. This is anything on the day Stop. This is what I will record. So in my case will be it phones, high definition, then Michael Auxiliary audio. This is where your Michael input is. So in my case is the plug and play. And next on the video, we want to set our output the same as the base canvas. My cases 1006 109 100. Then the frame rate will leave at 30 frames per second. As we can see on the right aspect ratios 16 by nine. It's very important for us to stay 16 by nine. Then we comply. Okay, Okay. Next up, let's just run through the basic ui. That's important to know my left. Here. We've got our scenes. This is what will be recorded sources what is in that scene. So whether it's music or video images and then our audio mixer, that is the input and yeah, the output. Then on the right here, we've got start recording. Stop recording Okay, then let's start with adding some audio so we are not seen one. This will be the main recording you'll be using for the programme, so we go click a plus. Then let's go to audio input Capture School is how we got to add existing Michael Gallery. And with this one selected, we can either click Philtres on top or right click and click Philtres and to have a consistent audio throughout the videos, we'll be adding first of all, uh, noise suppression to remove some basic background noise. We live on what it is like another one. We had a compressor. The compressor will set the lows and the highs to be closer to the same. So if you speak soft or loud, it sounds similar. The default settings is pretty standard. If you know what you're doing, you can play with that. Otherwise, just leave. It will be just focusing on the game and the gain output well adjusted and on the bottom Here you will see the level we wanted to basically just be in the red safely. If it's too far past already. As you can see, it's it's clipping, so we getaways rather safe. We speak large, soft. It's very similar. The next thing we're gonna do is we want to set a limiter so even if we speak too loud cannot clip. So let's add a limiter, and they know if you speak really loud, you can see it. It stops there, And if you're just this one louder or softer, you can kind of adjust the max threshold of the max volume. So if you're still too low, you can set it higher. But on average for these videos, try just in the read about then, if you're still struggling with background noise, you can always add a noise gate as well. But for most of the time, I'll just leave this one off. Okay, next up what we want to record as the display. So we'll click on the plus or go display capture. So be your desktop, so we'll just leave it to display capture. Now we've got that infinite loop will disable it now, too, so it's not too distracting and over a year display we want to record. I'm recording my first display. If you have two displays, it's good to run your programme on the one display and record all your assets on the other display. So at the moment, I leave it on that capture cross there, Of course. Cursor. Make sure that is on. Okay, Okay, let me disable. Display for analysis was confusing. So now this is the first scene set up. So our programme and everything that's on our desktop were recorded here. Now, what does help us for the intro video for softwaretraining.co.za y? It has the animation loop. And so for that to have that be able to cue in with a shortcut key, we can add another scene. Let's call this intro video and then click the plus sign by its sources. And then we're gonna media source and call this also intro video. Okay, then you want to locate your intro video, So intro video, then the settings that's important to set off. He's shown nothing when playback ends with this like this as well, when it ends, will go to a black screen where we rather wanted to stay on the last frame. So they were. If you're recording audio over the intro scripted, then, um, even if you take longer than the animation loop, it will still stay on screen the races. All right, We'll leave That as is It's like Okay, now we should see the intro video start. Now, My intro video has prerecorded audio because the scripted it makes it quicker. So now let me show you how to set that up. So the final recording actually picks up the prerecorded audio. So what we wanna do is with the scene to select it, we go to our little gear here on the audio. Then we go to advance audio properties and then under the intro video, we want to make sure by monitoring audio monitoring that it is monitor only mute output, then under our desktop audio. This is what we're playing through our monitors. We wanna put monitor and output. So now, once this video starts playing, it will record. It's audio as well. Let's do a little textures. So let's say we aren't seen one. We got to see you too. Today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za z. As you can see there, even if you hear the audio, then next let's set up a shortcut keys so we can while we're recording our desktop. We can easily switch to the intro video when it's time and then switch back without having to switch to the programme. So we'll go to file settings, then under hot keys and then start recording. Stop recording for my start recording. I got control, Shift are and stop control Shift s this way. You never have to shoot to the programme. And then for scenes seen one, I would make old one normally and they seem to introduce you all to so now the same things. When you're recording your desktop, you can just press all two switches to the video days. Video can be found old one and you switch back again. Okay, now, and one last note on the structure of the videos. We'll start by having a basic title about what you'll be showing in the video were rather short, and you tend to start that already been in the programme. Then you'll switch to your intro video. That will be the animation loop about you know, the softwaretraining.co.za gether today that one is normally scripted. Then you'll switch back to your desktop and you'll start the actual tutorial. That's the longest portion of the video tutorial, and that will be how you actually accomplish what you mentioned in the title. Then, lastly, you'll switch to the website and then that is also scripted.
