In this episode I’m going to show you how to use the excellent free OBS Studio for screen recordings. This is an open source, cross platform tool with amazing capabilities, yet it can be a little daunting to get started with it. While OBS Studio is commonly used for live streaming, it can do simple screen captures too. I’ll show you how to do that.
I’ll begin by explaining the interface philosophy, then I’ll show you how to add a desktop to your scene, how to add a webcam as an overlay, how to add audio, and finally how to pick the right preset and file format for your capture. When we’re done, you’ll be good to start editing your recording in your favorite application.
Any questions, please let me know.
