How to Record your Presentations

Presentations in minisymposia and special sessions will have to be recorded and submitted to a file server prior to their publication on the correponding MCQMC2020 Youtube channel. The details are still being worked out.

Here are some recording hints for the most common operating systems and programs:

  • On Windows, pressing the Windows-Key in combination with 'G' will start a screen recording. You may use your favorite presentation software and talk to record your contribution.

  • On macOS, you may use Quicktime to record a screen capture of your presentation with audio. As an option, you may check out the presentation tool at your own risk.

  • If you want to go professional, the Open Broadcaster Software allows for anything from simple screen capture to professional production. The software is free and available for Windows, macOS 10.13+, and Linux.

  • There will be many more options like recording your presentation using Webex or Zoom, if available to you.

  • Finally, both Powerpoint and Keynote offer an option to record your presentation with audio as a video.

Beyond that, please check the Web for advice.
