Step 1: Plan Your Content and Prepare the Tools
Plan your content ahead of time. Write a script and outline, know your audience, and what tools you should use. In this demonstration, we will be making a tutorial video on “How to use Microsoft Powerpoint Presentation.”
Step 2: Enable Hotkeys
In ZEUS settings, make sure you enable your hotkeys for the screen record.
This is so you can just use shortcut keys when recording as making a tutorial video uses most of the space on your screen.
You can customize this but we will use it by default for now.
Step 3: Customize Recording Settings
Change your “Recording” settings from the “Record” Tab.
Once another box appears, uncheck the “Show recording toolbar” to hide the recording toolbar when making your tutorial video.
Step 4: Select Sound and Record Mode
Launch ZEUS RECORD to click on the “Sound” button. Select your preferred sound mode from the dropdown box to record the audio of your tutorial: None, System sound, Microphone or System sound, and Microphone
“System sound and Microphone” will be used for this demonstration.
Next, click the “Record” button. Select your preferred recording mode from the dropdown box to record your gameplay: Region, Fullscreen, Around mouse, etc.
“Region” will be used for this demonstration.
Step 5: Prepare to Record Your Tutorial Video
An adjusting tool will pop up for you to modify the part you want to include in the recording. You may also drag the borders to adjust your recording area Click “OK” to start recording.
Another pop-up window will open, alerting you to prepare to record your tutorial. When you’re finished, click “OK.” A countdown will begin, indicating that the recording will commence when the countdown reaches zero.
Step 6: Start Recording Your Tutorial Video
You are now in the process of recording your tutorial video once you see a stripped border appear below the recording area.
Since the recording toolbar is hidden, use shortcut keys to Pause or Resume Recording (Ctrl+F7), Show or Hide Recording Toolbar (Ctrl+Alt+E), or Stop Recording (CTRL+F10).
Note: Showing recording toolbar is needed for you to access the pencil icon if you wish to annotate.
Step 7: Manage Recorded Tutorial Video
Once you’re done recording your tutorial video, Press “CTRL+F10” to stop recording. Go back to ZEUS RECORD to check your recorded tutorial video. Double click it to watch the video right away or right-click to see other options.
If you double-clicked for immediate playback, you can see here that the tutorial video you recorded is successful.
