Hello, I'm Matthew, and I'd like to take a

moment and show you how you can make a

YouTube video using

ScreenFlow

all right, ScreenFlow you can find

at telesteam.net go to their website

that's the

company that created it

you find the download free trial

button download that to your

computer you can play with it

try everything out

it's a really great tool for making

these types of videos

in fact you could probably spend a lot of

time under their resources

if you click here you see tutorials and

webinars there's a ton of stuff

here, how to use it, how to get the most

out of it

just a lot of great webinars showing you

all the all the

tricks of the trade

but this video real quick just how to get up and

running and how to quickly make

a YouTube video just like the one you're

seeing here

all right once you've installed screen flow and

it's on your computer you can open it up

typically when to

open it up you get this display window

that shows you which camera you're

choosing and which

desktop display

you can just do your desktop display or a

video you want to choose

which audio

recording from

and you can even choose to record

your computer audio

so if you're showing a,

you know a demo that you

want to hear what's on the computer

like if you're demoing audible or something

like our Delo or

something like that you could you could do that

so this is the

display window and then all you

do is you hit record

and it starts recording I have it set to

two seconds versus five seconds but it

just starts recording and now it's actually

recording my desktop

and it's recording this camera

and then I'll show you how we put it all

together inside of ScreenFlow

okay now as soon as

you finish recording with

ScreenFlow typically

a session window will open up and here's

the basics

and now there's a lot of cool things you can

do like this video that you're watching

I have myself overlaid in the

corner I have a green screen

which I key out

and which you can see

inside of the window here

and so those are all advanced techniques

I'm not going to go over all of

those because one telescreen

has a lot of tutorials and

one just for the duration of this

video I want to at least get you in

here recording something and

understanding the basics of

a video where you're on

top of your desktop so

that for the purpose of you know making

quick tutorials using ScreenFlow

but once you do this

this simple version it's really

cool where you can end up learning all the

techniques I'll show you some of the real real

basics just so you could get up and you could

have a video that

has your desktop and you

overlaid on it

but I'm not going to show you all the green screen

tricks and all of that stuff

with this video

So once you open it up

there's a couple of things that you can notice

down below here

this timeline you have the

the video track that I

recorded with my camera

it's here

and it highlighted

here by when I click down here and it

all turned yellow and it all turned white up

here down below in the

timeline when I click on it, that's the

actual desktop

now right now it's taking up the full

display window in this

little window

but you can see it's actually just a

video source

so if I shrink both of these

you can see and I'll just use this as a demo just

to show real clearly how

screen full

it ends up recording two different

video sources

as separate files

So down here in the corner

I have my video and if I

play it you can hear it

captured the audio inside of that

all right

welcome to my test

demo on YouTube all

about ScreenFlow

and telestream

so I recorded that

using ScreenFlow it opened up this

session and then you have

again one there's the

there's the desktop and

there's my overlay

now I'll just show you like one

technique if I click down here and

I highlight the

desktop and I guess I'll show you real

quick on the side panel here

this is like our little media

file and kind of this is the

default that I have on my setting

where I've got the file there and I've

got the file there

so there's a lot of

different ways you can edit the

audio the audio and the

video and all of that

but right now, just a real

basic to

input video

we'll do that for now

so if I wanted to

have my my desktop

fill the screen like it was kind

of by default I'll just drag

that I could even like hide my

desktop a little bit and just show

just show the the website if

I wanted by stretching that

and then I could highlight me

sometimes it grabs me

other times I need to go down to the timeline

and then I can just either if I

want myself real small there I can drag

myself anywhere in the screen I can

go small or real

big and all of that and just kind of

move it around

and then I can

at the very minimum just

record both of them and then arrange them

in such a way

maybe again, you have some purpose where

you'd want to have your

desktop shown on

one side and you could be

you know, larger, whatever

and so this is just a real

quick showing how you

have

automatically just in ScreenFlow

record and it gives you the two layers that

you can kind of play around with

and again, there's all sorts of cool

things that you can do

but getting this concept down

is really helpful

let's just say what we recorded straight

away was great

then you just go to file

on your computer and you

can publish it straight to Vimeo

YouTube, all those, or you can

export it as a

file, save it on your desktop

and then export it uploaded to

YouTube that way

so again a real powerful tool

this is just

getting you started understanding the

basics so you could get up and running and

start making some tutorial

videos or whatever you wanted to do

and then of course there's a lot

more features which I recommend

watching some of those other videos

who knows, maybe I'll make some more

but for right now I just wanted to get you started

with making a

YouTube video with

ScreenFlow

thanks guys
