As you may have realized there tends to be a pretty noticeable difference in quality between many of the screen capture videos out there. Some look like they’ve been produced professionally with high quality video, clear voiceovers, and even some other bells and whistles that add a certain polish to the video. On the other hand others look distinctly amateur, with low quality video that may appear blurry and out of focus or even shaky, and a voiceover that leaves a lot to be desired.
The good news is that it is certainly possible to create a screen capture video that looks professional, and the way to do that is by focusing on each aspect of it individually:
- Video quality
Needless to say video quality is a pretty huge area to look at and it encompasses the resolution, quality of the recording, as well as the color settings.
For the resolution it is always best to record in Full HD (1080p) nowadays, and as for the quality of the recording as well as the color settings it is a question of editing those on an ‘as required’ sort of basis, or re-recording certain parts of the video if absolutely necessary.
It is very noticeable when the voiceover starts to ‘uhh’ and ‘umm’ – and that alone can destroy the professional image of a video. If you’re recording your voiceover in tandem with your video then you should rehearse it beforehand to reduce the likelihood that you’ll ‘uhh’ or ‘umm’, or alternatively you could simply record the video and then add the voiceover as an audio track afterwards when you edit it.
If you choose the latter option you’ll need to ensure that the timing of the voiceover coincides with the video perfectly – which can be tricky.
Nowadays there’s a lot of polish that can go into a screen capture video and it ranges from transitions between scenes to special effects, background music, and so on. One of the easiest and yet most effective forms of ‘polish’ for videos that want to look professional is to simply insert subtitles.
