Presentations and Lectures with webcam and voice

Now that you have seen the process for the various other options the process for recording a presentation combined with a lecture, webcam and voice is fairly easy to do aside from the initial setup.

To start recording click on ‘Presentations & Lectures’ in the CaptureSpace window.

  • Your default camera will already be selected in the first box (in this case the Microsoft LifeCam VX-2000).
  • Choose the video quality for the camera.
  • To add multiple camera’s please connect them prior to selecting the record option!
  • Once connected press on –None– to see a drop-down menu of available camera’s and select one. Repeat this if you wish to add a third camera!
  • As with the prior chapters select the screen you wish to record the presentation from (under screen capture) as well as select the highest possible quality (1080P preferred).
  • Under Presentation you can select the presentation you wish to add to the video, the most recently opened presentation file can already be loaded, if not or if you wish to record another presentation please click Browse and browse towards the presentation you wish to record.
  • Leave the ‘On/Off’ selectors at on to record the presentation.
  • At sound choose to either use the default input device or click on ‘Default’ to select another source.
  • Leave the sound selector at ‘On’ if you wish to add sound to the video.

  • A Countdown timer will appear (counts down from 5 seconds). If you decide that you aren’t ready after all, press cancel.

  • After the countdown finishes your recording will begin. If for whatever reason you wish to pause or cancel, press the appropriate button. The video feeds will also be shown above the controls.

  • When you are finished recording, press done. The video will start to save.

  • Afterwards a new window will open with some edit options (a partial screenshot is shared below).
  • The top bar to the right of the play button is the timeline.
  • Below the timeline are the two edit options with to the right a preview window (in this case showing a black screen because there is no video to view).

  • You can now also see the video feeds to the right hand side of the presentation.

  • When you choose to either trim or chop your video two blue ‘dots’ will appear on the screen. You can drag these along the timeline to choose the start and endpoint of your edit.
    • When you trim everything between the start and endpoint will be kept, everything to the left and right of those points will be deleted.
    • When you choose chop everything between the start and endpoint will be ‘chopped’ from the video.

  • When you have selected the proper area to trim or cut from press apply.
  • Repeat the above steps if you wish to edit more or choose done when you are finished.
    • Pressing cancel will restore the video to original.

  • In the next screen after you choose done or cancel you will get the option to name your video, give a description and add tags. For searchability we recommend giving a proper name, description and as many tags as you can think off to classify your video.
    • Choose upload to upload your video to Kaltura.
    • Choose preview to go back to the editing screen.
    • Press save to save a local copy.
