3 Important Tips to Improve Business Videos Created with Screen Recording

Are you trying to record business videos with screen recording but aren’t that happy with how they’re turning out? Do you want to improve them but don’t know what steps to take to make them better?

Trying to improve the business videos that you capture with screen recording may seem confusing at first. However all that you really need to do are follow 3 very important tips:

  • Record at 60 frames per second (or as close to it as possible)

The frame rate that you record in will have a huge effect on your business videos, and make them look much smoother. That is because most screen recording videos have a lot of movement, and screen recording will make it all look more fluid – including the movement of the mouse cursor.

If you want to record business videos in the best possible quality, you should try to record at 60 frames per second – or as close to it as you can.

  • Clearly display input from the mouse or keyboard – or hide it completely

Generally speaking there are two types of screen recording videos: The type where the keyboard and mouse input is important, and the type where it isn’t.

If it is important you should make sure it is clearly displayed in your business videos. That can be done with apps that display keystrokes on screen, or that change the mouse cursor and make it more visible.

On the other hand if they aren’t important – you can hide the mouse cursor completely, so it doesn’t interfere with the video.

  • Encode in the right format and video settings

After you’re done recording, try to encode the video in the right format and video settings. As far as possible your video settings should be the same settings that you captured the video in, especially for the resolution and frame rate – or it could cause issues with the quality.

As far as the format goes, if you’re going to be publishing the video as is you can encode it in the format that you’ll use. For example you could encode it in MP4 with H.264 for YouTube.

However if you’re going to be editing and producing a video by using it as raw footage, you should use a format that is better for editing – such as DV, x264 Lossless, or JPEG2000. Some screen recorders may not support such formats however, in which case you don’t need to worry too much.

Needless to say if you’re creating business videos you may want to consider using a screen recorder that has a built-in editor so you can make improvements to your video. For example you could try Movavi Screen Capture Studio and follow the steps at www.movavi.com/support/how-to/how-to-create-videoguide.html.

As you can see the tips listed above aren’t that complicated – but they will definitely let you improve your business videos. It may help to look into optimizing the other video recording parameters as well – for best results.
