Things To Know #
With Screencast-O-Matic you can take screenshots (pictures of your screen), or screen captures (video of what’s happening on your screen).
When screen capturing there are options to record just the screen, just a webcam, or to record both a webcam and screen at the same time, along with your computer audio. You can also adjust the size of the screen capture to record a specific part of the screen, and use your microphone for narration.
Screencast-O-Matic offers basic video editing tools for free. You can add and animate text, image and video overlays, use video effects, and add free music and sound effects.
Videos can be saved directly to your computer or uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, or a cloud storage drive like Google Drive or Dropbox.
