Tip #1. Create a dedicated directory on your PC for storing all of your recordings and related material.

Video files take up a lot of room and can quickly fill your hard drive, if you're not careful. Still, it's likely that you'll use many of the same elements in multiple screencasts, or you may want to splice various recordings together to make a longer video. Either way, it's good to store all of your Camtasia recordings and related content in a dedicated location, so that the material will be easy to find and access.

Tip #2. Invest in a quality microphone or headset.

In many ways, the audio portion is the most important part of a screencast. Viewers will quickly forgive a couple of blurred frames or an off-center slide, but a crackling microphone or audio that fades in and out will turn people off right away. Even if your audience does continue to watch the entire presentation, a bad audio recording will be a constant distraction and take away from the focus of your material.

Tip #3. Do at least one practice walkthrough of your presentation before you begin recording.

You can save yourself from a lot of headaches if you take the time to rehearse your presentation before you actually begin recording with Camtasia. Not only will this allow you to become more comfortable with the material, but it will also let you spot potential problems or gaps in your presentation. In addition, you can use the rehearsal as a way to gauge the length of your screencast so you can determine if you need to break it up into smaller, more manageable chunks.

Tip #4. Close all unnecessary programs on your PC.

If you don't need a particular application or utility for your presentation, shut down the program before you begin your project. Recording and editing video files is very resource intensive, so it's a good idea to close any other software that may be competing for those resources.

Tip #6. Record your video in smaller segments that can be spliced together later.

Recording your screencast in small segments makes it easier to manage the size of individual video files, and it can be a huge blessing if you need to make edits or corrections to certain frames. Try to keep each segment less than five minutes long, or even less than 3 minutes if possible. You can always splice segments together later on, but it's a much more painstaking process to cut the middle of a segment out and replace it with another clip.

Tip #8. At the beginning of each video segment, wait a few seconds before you begin your presentation.

In the rush to get a screencast recorded, we often forget the usefulness of a short pause that allows the viewer to get comfortable before the beginning of a presentation or to absorb the point made in a previous segment before moving on. Also, pauses at the beginning and end of each video segment can be extremely helpful when you move on to the editing stage of your project, since this "dead" time allows more flexibility when trimming and splicing segments together.

One Final Tip

Consider recording your video and audio separately.

One great feature in Camtasia is the ability to separate your video and audio tracks. Basically, this means that you can narrate your video while recording your screencast, and then you can replace that audio file during the editing process. So, when making the initial recording, you can speak slowly and comfortably without worrying about leaving something out. Afterwards, you can use a free audio editing tool like Audacity to record a new sound track to attach to your pre-recorded video.
