Nowadays there are many different ways to capture videos directly on your computer itself, such as by recording your screen, capturing footage from a webcam, or even using a TV tuner or VHS player and digitizing the footage from it. It can be handy to have these options available, whether you’d like to save a TV show, online streaming video, or digitize some of your old home movies.
Assuming you’re interested in any of that, Movavi Screen Capture Studio can help you capture video from all those sources – and more. Although it is technically a screen recorder, it has a built-in editor that comes with the capability to capture videos from a variety of sources.
To start recording videos from your screen is simple, and as soon as you launch Movavi Screen Capture Studio a window will appear where you can select to do as much. After that it is simply a case of defining the capture area, setting the audio source, and configuring all the other recording parameters if need be.
On the other hand if you want to digitize videos from VHS players or TV tuners, capture video from a webcam or import it from an AVCHD camera, you would opt to open up the editor in the Movavi Screen Capture Studio launch window. Once you do that you can open up the dedicated video capture application by choosing to ‘Record Video’.
Needless to say you will have to connect your AVCHD camera, webcam, VHS player or TV tuner in advance, but assuming you did then Movavi Screen Capture Studio will let you select it as the capture device. For AVCHD cameras you’ll then be presented with a list of videos that you can import to your computer. On the other hand for webcams, VHS players or TV tuners you can adjust the other settings and start to capture footage as and when you see fit.
Regardless of how you choose to use the video capture software, when you are done you should also take advantage of the editing features in Movavi Screen Capture Studio. By applying them you can really improve the quality of your videos, trim out unwanted footage, add background music, or even transform them with special effects. Suffice to say you will have everything you could possibly need to both capture and produce some great videos.
