Video tutorials are among the most popular ways people are learning on the Internet, regardless of the domain or the difficulty level. In addition, creating a video presentation to go together with your project can explain the concepts far better than a simple movie clip, especially when it comes to software applications.
IntelliRec is a software utility that enables you to record your desktop and create videos of your screen activity, which can then be transformed into presentations or slideshows. The files are saved using the WMV format, which keeps the disk space requirements to a minimum and allows you to record longer clips at more than decent quality levels.
As far as the resolution is concerned, the videos can have the same resolution as your desktop, including full-HD dimensions at 1980x1080 pixels. In case you do not want to capture everything on the screen, the application allows you to enter the desired width and height of the area you want to record, or simply select it by dragging your mouse over it.
In order to create proper video tutorials or walkthroughs, your clip should contain an audio narration as well. To that effect, IntelliRec is capable of capturing the sound input from your microphone device and blend it over the video, without any loss in quality. By using the available settings, you can select the specific device you want to use for speech, as long as it is connected to the computer.
Furthermore, the overall movie quality can be modified to save additional disk space, or to make it more accessible on video streaming websites, such as YouTube, and it can range between 1 and 100, with 100 being the highest quality achievable. The frame rate option, on the other hand, can be used to adjust the number of frames the application captures every second, in case you are not satisfied with the default settings and you want to increase the amount of recorded details.
Despite the casual appearance of the utility, IntelliRec is a highly functional tool that can effectively capture the activity on your desktop screen at any resolution, quality level and frame rate you desire. In addition, the easy-to-use interface makes it really simple for anyone to record their own tutorials or software demos.
