"Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Screen Capture" "how to" screens... someone will find it useful I'm sure. Step one is download and install the software; "Microsoft Expression Encoder 3 Screen Capture" = XP "Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Screen Capture" = all other Windows To use "Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Screen Capture"Navigate to the " Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Screen Capture" icon. Press the gear wheel in the middle and select the options… I recommend you don't adjust the video settings because they are a standard used on the internet and also be aware that ticking the capture mouse curser option will increase the ram/ cpu load placed on your system during recording so you may want to leave it off. The next button to the right of the gear wheel is the manager and the only thing you need to do in here is browse to the folder where you want to store your captures… make sure there is lots of room. Final steps;Press the record button and a (adjustable) grid will display on your screen… be aware again that increasing the size of this grid also increases the loads put on your system but my Asus i3 12g ram laptop can record a photoshop/ muse session in full wide screen for 20 minutes without locking up… I don't allow Microsoft updates, facebook or anything else to run in the background during these bigger captures however so I recommend doing short (under 5 minute) videos to get you started as these will upload to places like vimeo (Vimeo: Watch, upload and share HD videos with no ads) without stress. When you have the screen set to the size you like press the red record button to begin recording… if you have it on full screen then this interface will be hidden and you can use the keyboard shortcuts (listed in the gear wheel options) instead. During the recording session you will see frame markers to let you know what area of the screen is being captured and a running count of the recording. After you stop recording the manager screen should come up with a new video at the top of the list… you can use whatever player to check this video for errors. Tip; It's a very bad idea to record sound during a video capture session… I know some people do it and it always comes off as choppy. A professional will simply record commentary separately and edit it as required.
