I have seen a lot of tutorials both here and on websites where the video has the live tutorial on the screen (Live view of the computer) and also the person giving the lesson.

Do you need a certain program/software to do this?

Is it easy to set up for someone with limited technical ability?

Does anyone know of any video tutorials on this within WA?

Cheers,

Mark

I use screen o matic. Easy to use and download. You can also use a free version, but the paid is better.

Good morning Mark,

Thank you for your question. I hope you're doing well.

I have used Camtasia for years, Mark, it is a paid product, however, I can strongly recommend it. It has great editing capabilities and there are lots of videos on how to use the software.

I also use software called Snagit, this is kind of like a cheaper version of Camtasia. They are both manufactured by Techsmith, you will find details on the Techsmith website. Snagit is considerably cheaper than Camtasia, they are definitely both worth a look.

I also pay a maintenance programme annually which entitles me to free upgrades and free telephone support. The telephone support is excellent, I speak from experience.

Have a great day.

A pleasure Mark.

Just for your interest, I believe there are still Black Friday special offers at Techsmith.

Have a great day.

With regard to this Camtasia, I already tried this as a trial version, but unfortunately, I can not save it to youtube or any social media, unless I will register to pro. Better try another one Mark.

I use Camtasia. It's a big learning curve and it's not free. Try https://screencast-o-matic.com/ it has a free version and I think it's a bit easier to learn.

I second this and I purchased the paid version. Worth every penny for the added benefits and options.

The free version works very well, too.

Techsmith used to have Jing, which was my favorite. Sadly, it was replaced.
