Your First Steps in Creating A Training Video - 3

Your First Steps in Creating A Training Video - 3
  1. Record Screenshots. Now that Wink is recording, go back to the target application and run through the steps that you wish to demonstrate. Wink will continuously record what you do. When you have finished the demonstration, return to the Wink icon in the System Tray.

  2. Finish Capture. Right click on the Wink icon for the pop-up menu and choose Finish Capture. This will stop the recording process and open the Wink workspace. It may take a few seconds for Wink to generate the individual frames for your screen capture. They will appear at the bottom of the workspace.

  3. Save your project. Now is a good time to save your project. Click File > Save from the Menubar to save your project in the Wink .wnk format.

Now that you have saved the original frames for the screen recording, you can preview your project by clicking on the Render button (green arrow) on the toolbar. Your next steps will vary depending on the type of training video you are creating. Generally, you will be adding a splash or welcome screen as the first frame of your video. You might also want to add text captions, audio, titles and visual effects for transitions between major sections, navigation buttons and more.
