How to Record Screen:

Maybe you are trying to make it easier when showing someone how to do something or maybe you need to record some strange behavior if an app isn't working as you expect. Luckily, with VAIS Screen Capture, it's easy to record everything happening on the screen of your PC. It not only can capture webcam video and online streaming video, but also can record audio synchronously, which means that you can create demonstration videos on the fly without having to record the sound in the editing process. No matter how long the video will last, its maximum recording ability will suit all individualized needs. Meanwhile, the scheduled recording can free yourself from waiting in front of the computer. Moreover, a set of post-recording options comes in handy to enable you to apply overlay image and filter effects to the recording.

1. Choose Recording Region

First, you need to download VAIS Screen Capture and launch it. In the dropdown menu of "Select region" you can see 5 options for region selection: Region stable - region from windows, Region stable - free hand mode, Region moving by mouse, Region stable - set values by user and Region stable - full screen. In this tutorial, we choose the "Region stable - region from windows".
