How to Record Your Screen, Gameplay, and More with Wondershare DemoCreator
Recording your screen is simple with Wondershare DemoCreator—but it also has a ton of easy to use options, so you can record the perfect footage for your project. Let's get started:
1. Start a New Recording
When starting up Wondershare DemoCreator, you can choose to start a New Recording or to go to the Video Editor.
You can also open an existing project, down at the bottom of the window.
Let's start by creating a New Recording.
2. Resize the Recording Area
Let's take a look at in Wondershare DemoCreator's recording space.
Easily resize your recording area by clicking and dragging on any of the handles on the outside of the recording space's perimeter. This is perfect for capturing custom sizes.
Move this recording area by clicking and dragging the red circle with arrows, in the center of your defined recording area.
3. Adjust Video Settings
Let's take a look at some video settings. Click on the Settings icon to open them up.
4. Set the Screen Capture Settings
First, note the Screen tab. You've got two choices here: Screen Capture or Game.
- Screen capture: Choose from a custom size, full size, a target window, or no capture.
- Game: Choose from specific software running on your computer.
In both of these options, you can also choose the frame rate.
5. Define Audio Settings
Next are your Audio settings. Choose whether or not you want to capture audio, as well as the source. Wondershare DemoCreator is a screen recorder with audio—you can record it all at once.
6. Turn Camera Capture On
You can also choose whether you want to capture footage from a camera. Turn the camera capture on or off, the resolution, and the frame rate here.
This can also be handy if you're looking to capture both your screen (or gameplay footage) as well as your camera, at the same time.
7. Define Advanced Settings
Then you've got some advanced settings.
With the General tab, choose where your content is saved. Using Encode, choose from some encoding settings, such as H.264 and the quality of your capture.
In the Short Cut section, customize some of your short cuts.
8. Define Recording Device Settings
Now, let's look back out at your main recording area. You've got some quick options on the right hand side.
For example, click to mute or turn on your microphone and camera.
9. Start Your Recording
Let's do a sample recording by clicking on the red Record button.
Recording is that easy!
10. Use Screen Drawing Tools
The Screen Drawing tools in Wondershare DemoCreator are really fun. Toggle it on at the bottom of the Recording Area settings, or type Shift +D to toggle the tools on.
Choose from different sized pens, lines, shapes, and arrows. Simply choose the one you'd like to apply to your recording and click and drag to either draw or apply it, live, to your footage. In the example below, I used the Pencil in green.
If you've already drawn something in your recording area and you want to remove these drawings, it's as simple as clicking on this Brush tool to clear the space. Easy!
11. Activate Spotlight Mode
Spotlight Mode is also really user-friendly and easy to use.
First, click the Spotlight Mode icon to activate Spotlight Mode. Then, click and drag with the left mouse button to visually spotlight a particular part of your video.
This is such a simple but effective way to highlight specific parts of your video.
Once you're happy with your video, click on the red Record button to stop it. Or use the shortcut F10.
How to Easily Import, Export, and Edit Video in Wondershare DemoCreator
Now that you've recorded some video, let's take a look at editing, importing, and exporting video in Wondershare DemoCreator. It's simple but packed with options. Get started here:

You'll be given the option to export your visual footage, audio, or both. Make your selection, click FastExport, and you're done. It's that easy.
2. Use the Video Editor
Once you've stopped recording video, Wondershare DemoCreator takes us directly to the Video Editor. This is handy because you can make revisions before you save.

It's really very easy to edit your footage in Wondershare DemoCreator. For example, let's say you want to split a clip.
All you need to do is select your newly recorded clip, here in your timeline.
Move the marker to the position where you'd like to split your clip. The marker is shown in yellow, below.
Then, click on the Split button. That's it—the clip is split. Now, click and drag to move and rearrange the clips, or even delete them (with the Delete key) if you want to get rid of excess.
4. Crop Your Video Content
It's also really easy to crop your video content too. All you need to do is select your clip and the click on the Crop button.
Then, you need to resize the visible area. Click and drag on the resize handles to do so. Then, click OK to crop your video.
You can also put in specific dimensions here if you prefer.
5. Access More Video Editing Options

- Transform: Easily scale or rotate your selected clip. You can even adjust the position by X and Y coordinates.

- Speed: Easily speed up your slow down your clip here.
6. Import Content

Then, Wondershare DemoCreator gives us a host of options to choose from before you export your work. Export to your computer, or even directly to YouTube. Once you've selected the options best for your project, simply click Export.
How to Easily Add Transitions, Annotations, and More
Add transitions, captions, annotations, and more, here in Wondershare DemoCreator too. The best part is: they're super user-friendly and easy to use. Choose from a whole host of options and apply them in a snap. Let's take a look:
1. Add Captions
The first tab here is for adding text captions. Choose from a wide variety of stylish presets here. Click and drag one down into your timeline. It'll act like its own newly added footage.
Extend or shorten the length of the time the text is visible by simple dragging the clip. It's very user-friendly.
2. Change Caption Properties
Then, turn to the Properties over on the right hand side of the software when the caption is selected, down in your timeline. Easily edit what the text says, the font, the font color, and more.
3. Add Annotations
You can also easily add annotations using the content in the next tab. The functionality is similarly user-friendly. Click and drag a new annotation to your timeline. Then, you can turn to the Properties on the right to customize it.
Choose from a variety of fun colors and bubbles or stick to simple text.
4. Use Stickers
Wondershare DemoCreator has fun stickers too. Check them out in the next tab. Just click and drag to add them to your timeline.
5. Choose Transitions
But Wondershare DemoCreator also has a whole collection of professional transitions too. No need to stick to abrupt cuts, especially when you've got a library of easy to use transitions at your fingertips.
Like other elements here in DemoCreator, all you've got to do is choose a transition and drag it down to your clip. Place it right on top of your footage, down in your timeline, then preview it.
Preview your work using the video controls under your video preview or by dragging your marker in the timeline.
So, let's use your Transitions here to transition from one video to another. I'll use a split video clip in this demonstration
Check out my timeline. I've got these two video clips overlapping, with a transition applied on the top video in my timeline. When I preview them, the two clips transition from one to another via a 3D cube effect.
This is just one of many transitions you could try.
6. Work with Green Screen Footage
You can also work with Green Screen footage in Wondershare DemoCreator—and it's super user-friendly. Amazing, right?
With your green screened clip imported, all you need to do is turn to the Effects tab. Green screen is one of your effect options here.
Like you did with other elements in this demonstration, simply drag the Green Screen effect down and on top of your footage. It's that simple. Now, the green space has been masked out.
Use the Chroma Key properties to customize the green screen effect so it looks just right for your footage.
7. Add Cinema Mode or Mosaic Effect
You can also apply a wide screen Cinema Mode or add a Mosaic Effect here. All of this content is as simple as clicking and dragging. Place these effects on top of your work, within your timeline, to check them out.
Removing them is as simple as pressing Delete. It really is very user-friendly—and fun to try out.
8. Emphasize Your Cursor
The Cursor effects make it really easy to add more emphasis to your cursor. Make sure your footage already makes use of your cursor. Then, simply drag one of the effects onto your footage.
So, for example, if you were giving a software presentation, you could add a cursor highlight, so it's easier to see where your cursor is, for your viewers. Want to emphasize when you clicked? Add the click sound effect—Wondershare DemoCreator will automatically add in the click sounds for you, every time you clicked. Awesome, right?
