How to Screen Record in 4 Easy Steps


Start your screen recording

The first step to screen record is to create a project. Then, once you’re in your Animoto workspace, click the black RECORD icon at the top of your screen.


Select your screen

Now, select the screen, window, or tab that you’d like to record. Click the RECORD button again and you’re off! To end your screen recording, click “Stop sharing” in the recording window or hit the stop button in your workspace.


Trim and edit your screen recording

Drag and drop your screen recording into your project and edit it to your liking. You can trim any unwanted footage out of your recording. Or, cut it into bite-sized pieces to use throughout your video. You can also adjust the volume or silence your screen recordings altogether.
