CaptureSpace launches directly from the Media tool and allows you to record presentations, lectures, and screencasts. This can be accessed by using the Add New button in your Media Library. The first time you access CaptureSpace, you will be prompted to download a launcher that will allow you to run the program moving forward. Once the program is successfully launched, you will see a small window appear.
Before recording, you’ll want to make sure all of your settings are configured properly. Select the Settings tab. From here, you can select a folder on your computer where you would like to store your production files. If you prefer, you can check the box at the bottom labeled ‘Delete recordings on disk after upload.’ Be sure to select the proper webcam and microphone in the drop-down options. You can also choose the camera’s recording resolution and the playback resolution. Remember that higher resolution means higher file sizes.
Select the Record tab. You have the option to choose what type of recording you want to produce.
This walkthrough will cover the ‘Presentations & Lectures’ option since it’s the most comprehensive production in CaptureSpace. This option will bring up a new screen with a configuration panel on the left displaying all of your preferred settings from the Settings tab. You can also browse for a presentation file that you would like to use for your recording.
The preview of your presentation along with your webcam feed will be displayed for you to review. Once you’re ready, select Record on the bottom right. Progress through your presentation as you normally would in a live setting. Once you’re done, simply click Stop. Another screen will pop-up with a preview of your recording. On the left you have options to Trim or Chop the video.
Selecting either option will bring up two sliders that you can adjust along the video. In either tool, anything highlighted will be cut.
Click Apply on the bottom to perform the edit. Select Done proceed to the upload stage.
The next window will give you the option to add a Title, Description, and Tags to the video. If you wish to re-enter the editor, select Preview. If you’re ready to upload it to your Media Library, select Upload.
Select Save to house the video in the Library in CaptureSpace. From the Library tab, you will see a list of all videos produced in CaptureSpace (any content that hasn’t been uploaded will be noted appropriately). You can choose to edit any content listed in the Library by selecting the pencil icon, which will take you back to the Upload Options window shown above. Please note that removing the media will only remove it from the CaptureSpace library, not from your Media Library (you will need to go into your Media Library to delete the video permanently).
