Below is a video tutorial as well as step-by-step instructions with screenshots that show how easy it is to record a video on VidGrid.
To record a video on VidGrid, first log in to your account. Click the Record button located in the upper left corner of your My Grid screen. The recording frame and toolbar will appear.
You can adjust the size and placement of the recording area on your screen by clicking on the corners. Drag the corner in or out to change the size, or move the frame around the screen to capture the area you want in your recording.
From the drop-down menu, you can also choose predesignated frame dimensions or opt to record the entire screen (Fullscreen).
Once you have selected your frame dimensions, you can choose whether or not to have your webcam on during the recording. Click the Webcam icon from the recording toolbar and select your webcam.
You can resize and/or move your webcam image anywhere on the screen as well as move this image around during your recording. (The image below shows a smaller webcam image in the lower right corner of the recording area).
Next, choose your audio recording device by clicking the Microphone icon from the recording toolbar. Select your microphone preference from the available choices in the drop-down list.
Click the More Options icon from the recording toolbar to select additional options.
Webcam only mode will record solely your webcam and nothing else on screen.
