Part 1. Recording your footage
The first step of any video is to record your footage for some tutorials like arts and cooking. You can use a camera to get the footage you need. However, sometimes you'll need to record your computer screen, and you can do that easily in Filmora.
Step1 Firstly, open Filmora on your computer. If you haven't already downloaded it you can get it at filmora.wondershare.com. Once you open Filmora, click "File" and "Record screen." Here you can adjust various options like recording your computer's audio or including your webcam.
Step2 Click settings to unlock even more options. Recording at the highest quality setting is recommended in case you need to zoom in later. Also, make sure to enable the show mouse if you want your viewer to follow along with your cursor.
Step3 When you're ready press these buttons to begin recording your tutorial and hit them again to finish your recording.
Part 2. Keep your intro short
Avoid adding any long intro monologues or skits to your tutorial. First, your goal is to be informative and entertaining. Second, it's always best to lead with a peek at what the final result of your tutorial will look like whether it's a video effect arts and crafts or a recipe video.
Part 3. Break down your tutorial into steps
