O, the agony and the ecstasy of gaming. The high you feel on long nights spent pwning n00bs. The low you feel when you’re being destroyed and heckled. Riding these ups and downs is what makes gaming so damn addictive. Sharing this addiction with a community is a secondary but also very satisfying part of the gaming.
Websites like Reddit are awash with gaming discussions and are a great place to meet new players, share tips, and improve your play. Homemade videos are often posted and exchanged. These videos show off skills, give tutorials on difficult levels, etc. Today, I’m going to show you how easy it is to use MAGIX Movie Edit Pro Plus and Movie Edit Pro Premium to make your own gaming video.
The trick to good gaming videos is screen capturing, this means recording whatever is happening on screen. Screen capturing allows you to record live gameplay so you can edit it down later. Movie Edit Pro Plus and Premium feature an integrated screen recording function able to both screen capture and audio capture with minimal GPU usage. Here’s how to do use it to make your own gaming videos:
Step 1: Start up Movie Edit Pro, click on File on the top toolbar and select ‘Record audio/image/video’
Step 2: After selecting ‘Record audio/image/video’, the ‘Recording source selection’ window will come up. Select: ‘Screen’.
Step 3: After selecting ‘Screen’ the ‘Screen Capture’ window will come up. Here you can chose which digital format to record in and if you’d like to also capture the computer’s audio output. When you have chosen, click ‘record’.
Step 4: The Movie Edit Pro interface will automatically minimize leaving you with an adjustable box which allows you to choose exactly which part of the screen you’d like to capture. A small window with a few options will also come up with a few other customizable options like retaining the aspect ratio. When you’ve chosen where you’d like to record, click the red record button.
Step 5: Now you’re screen capturing! Movie Edit Pro will completely minimize leaving just a red icon on the bottom right side of your screen. When you’re done, click the red button to stop the screen capture. All you footage will automatically be saved into Movie Edit Pro. There you can edit your raw footage down and quickly share it with your fellow gamers!
Now that you’ve seen how easy it is, go forth and create epic gaming videos!
