How to record a screencast video for free on Mac OS X

I couldn’t figure out how to use a powerpoint and add my audio over it on my mac. With Imovie you have to get the images from you camera or Iphoto. This trick allowed me to open a powerpoint and just record my voice over the existing slides. Very easy and useful for out assignment and if you are going to make these videos in the future.

  1. This is good information to have since I have a mac as well. For my assignment I used Knovio, you can upload your powerpoint and record over it too. I may have to try imovie sometime to become familiar with that too.

    • Knovio is cool! Was it one of the one suggested? For my powerpoint it was to small. I didn’t check if I could make my face smaller and the presentation bigger.

      • I ended up by just using the sound. My lighting was not great to do video (though that was my initial intent). Thus, I am not sure the full capabilities
