Set up your camera to record your video

What is it?

You should consider your camera set up before you begin recording or sharing your screen in a live session

What does it do?

This will help you arrange your settings, and make sure that you don’t have to re-record any videos if there is something amiss with your set-up (e.g. camera angle, items in view, etc.).

What should I know?

Before you begin recording or sharing your screen, use the preview window to analyse yourself and your setting. Here are a few questions to consider:

  • Is your face and mouth clearly visible (this will help any users who are trying to read your lips)?
  • Are you facing the camera (this is especially relevant if you have multiple monitors)?
  • What is in your background?
  • Do you have anything overly distracting in your background? Remember, some viewers may have issues with over-stimulation, so things like digitally-created moving backgrounds should be avoided.

Once you are happy with your set up, begin recording or sharing your screen!
