I’ve recently started my journey as a Pluralsight author and, as is know surprise, I’m spending a lot of time getting my tools set up. Regardless of what video editing tool you use, you need to record both screens and voice. I believe most video authors at Pluralsight have a dedicated monitor running at 1024×768. They simply record this windows.
Unfortunately for me, that does not work so well because I’m doing all my work on a MacBook Pro with just two external monitors (neither of which run correctly at 1024×768). So, my process is to create a 1024×768 window in the upper left hand corner of my Thunderbolt monitor (resolution 2560×1440). I’m going to run camtasia recorder in a custom region sized 1024×768. The challenge now becomes you have to align exactly your apps. You’ll see from the video I’m attaching below that my steady hand is not so steady and I would never be able to achieve this exact positioning.
So, just a couple notes
- You need to run Macro Express Pro as Admin
- This will likely not work on anything but windows 8 on thunderbolt monitor
- Small Adjustments may be necessary
- http://www.macros.com/ (I believe you need the pro version)
The Macro Exported
- And the Video
