Have you ever noticed that some screen recording videos can look really impressive – but others do not? Naturally you’d probably prefer that yours number among the former, but you may not know how to go about it.
The fact of the matter is that there are numerous factors that can affect how impressive your screen recording videos turn out. Some of the factors play a bigger part than others however, which is why there are 3 tips that are a good place to start:
- Set up the recording parameters to capture high quality videos
To set up the recording parameters so that the video quality that you record is impeccable, you should focus on the resolution and frame rate. As a rule the resolution should be an equivalent of 1080p Full HD or higher, and the frame rate should be at least 30 – though 60 is much better.
The resolution that you’re able to capture will be restricted by your maximum display resolution, so if you’re using a 1080p display you’ll need to record in full screen. As far as the frame rate goes you just need to make sure the video screen capture Mac or PC software that you use allows you to adjust the frame rate, and for example you could use Movavi Screen Capture Studio for Mac.
- Close unnecessary background processes and apps
Before you start recording you should close any unnecessary background processes and apps on your Mac or Windows PC. That should free up system resources that may be needed to record the video, and it should also minimize the risk of performance issues or notifications suddenly popping up and getting in the way of the video you’re capturing.
- Make sure the microphone audio quality is good
If you’re only recording the system audio you can ignore this tip, but it is important seeing as many screen recording videos capture audio via a microphone as well. The audio quality that you record from your microphone will affect how impressive your video appears to be – so you should take steps to make sure it is good.
A good place to start is to use a decent mid-range microphone so that you’re able to capture better quality audio. On top of that you could then find ways to minimize background noise, and edit it later to adjust the sound levels and make other adjustments.
Try to make it a point to use each one of the tips listed above the next time you record a video using screen recording – and see for yourself what a difference it makes. None of the tips are particularly difficult, but each of them will definitely have an impact on the videos that you capture.
Just remember that after you’re done you should make sure you use the right format and settings to encode your video. After all you don’t want to use the wrong settings and end up adversely affecting the video quality in the process.
