How to Capture the Desktop Screen Video?

First, I have to claim that the tutorial will change with the update of the software version. Therefore, if you find the following guide cannot match the newest version of the software. Please don't hesitate to contact us and tell us your suggestions.

The simplest and the fastest way to capture the desktop screen video in Corel VideoStudio is to use the 'Live Screen Capture' feature. In order to do so, simply select it from the 'Start' menu or alternatively you can click on the 'Screen Capture' feature under the 'Record/Capture' option. This action will minimize the Corel VideoStudio window and you will be able to see 'Live Screen Capture' toolbar on the screen.

Adjusting the 'Live Screen Capture' Settings: If you would like to ensure that your screen recording is in accordance with your wishes configuring the screen recording settings is the right thing to do. Click on the 'Settings' button and begin customizing the settings by entering the file name and choosing the location on your hard-disc where you want to save the file.

In the next step you will need to choose the preferred frame rate, but when doing so, keep in mind that higher frame rates create larger files that take more time to upload onto the Internet, but if you need to capture the on-screen action accurately, selecting a higher frame rate is a much better option, despite the size of the file. During this stage of the process, you can also select the file format of the video you are going to capture.

In the next step, you will need to enable the 'Voice Recording' in the 'Audio' settings if you would like to narrate the video, and you can also choose whether or not you want to record 'system audio'.

Finally, before starting a screen recording session, designate the area of the screen you want to capture, you can do this by either selecting the default 'Full Screen' option or by customizing the area so that it covers only the parts of the screen you want to include in your video.

After completing this task hit the record button and commence the recording session, if you would like to pause the recording, press the F11 button on your keyboard, or the F10 button if you want to stop recording.

How to Capture Videos from Devices?

Besides being able to capture desktop screen recordings, Corel VideoStudio also allows you to capture the footage from your camcorder. Launch the video editing software and connect the device to your computer with the firewire cable, then set the camcorder on Play in either VCR or VTC mode. In the 'Capture Options' window, select the 'Capture Video' option and then find your device in the 'Format' drop-down menu. At this stage of the video capturing process, you can also select the destination folder to which your footage will be transferred by selecting the folder from the list.

If you would like to capture only a portion of the video material you have on your camcorder, scan it or use the 'Navigation' area to play through the footage. Once you are ready to start transferring your video clips, click on the 'Capture Video' button and if at any point of the capturing process you'd like to stop it, simply hit the 'Escape' button on your keyboard.

Switching from 'Play' to 'Record' mode on your camera will enable you to capture live videos and transfer them from your device to the Corel VideoStudio while you are recording.
