OBS Studio for recording Magix Movie Edit Pro Tutorials?

CubeAce wrote on 8/12/2019, 6:33 AM

Does anyone use similar or this software or is there another way to get a screengrab while using MEP to produce a tutorial?

Hi Ray

I have tried OBS for screen recording vs my normal screen capture program - ScreenCast-o-Matic (paid for- got it before went subscription) and found OBS was wanting in terms of quality and load on the PC.

All the screen capture videos I have posted in the forum were captured with ScreenCast-O-Matic and then edited in MEP.

Thank you for your reply, John.

I was wondering about the load. I suppose I can only give it a try as it seems to have been updated a lot. There have been complaints about lag which infers quite a load being generated in use. It only occurred to me recently that I would need such a program now and again. I don't think it would get much use hence I was looking at freeware. I may have to re-think what to do as I wouldn't use such a program enough to justify a subscription.

Hi Ray,

I have used Debut by NHCSoftware in the past. There is a free version, but for some reason it kept asking me to pay. It is quite good.

I now use the Corel capture program.

Back to the campground - no wifi, no cell coverage.

Hi John CB.

I had a look at the site and while the download is free there is no mention of a free version. Maybe that is why you get a nag screen? I will look into that one and maybe try a download.

If you have Mozilla Firefox, there is an addin you can download called Video DownloadHelper, I have used it for downloading tutorials for years and of course it is free

Not sure if it is available for Edge or Chrome

I think you have misunderstood what @CubeAce is asking! He wants to know what software other users have to enable them to create a video tutorial using MEP. He doesn't want/need to download a video but rather create one, containing views of his workscreen.

Oops, sorry about that, did indeed misread the post, for normal screen capture I use Camtasia, only because I have had a version for many years, but now many NLEs also have their own screen capture programs

Please don't worry about getting it wrong. You gave me an idea. I have a free version of VSDC editor on my PC that can do this that I forgot about. I'm going to give it a go and see what happens.

I got VSDC editor to work but only at 15fps. Pretty unusable. Even then the audio was terrible and it was skipping frames I think. I don't think my machine is powerful enough to run a second program alongside MEP but I'll try a few other suggestions. I'm not holding out much hope though until I can upgrade my system.

NCHS has a free capture program which can record up to 60 fps, not had it ask me to upgrade to a paid version
