You can record screen capture movies on your Mac using its built-in tools. In this video, Derrick Story shows you how.
- [Instructor] Let's make a movie together, you and I, using the new Video Screen Capture mode in Mac OS Mojave, and then we'll integrate that movie into our photos from Mac OS Library. Sounds like a good time, right? Let's do it. So I'm going to double-click on the screenshot right here in our Photos Library, and let's do a demo where we use the Retouch tool to get rid of these little icons up here, alright. So the way I'm going to do that, so we'll go to Edit mode right here, and then we'll bring Retouch up to the top.
Okay, so we're all set up, we're ready to go. So now I'm going to hit shift + command + five to bring us into our video mode. We could record entire screen here, or we could record selected portion, we'll do selected portion. And let's check our options to make sure that mouse clicks will show, we want that. Everything else looks good, we're not going to do any audio, I got audio right now, but we could add audio. We've got our area selected, let's roll 'em.
So, we'll record. 'Kay we're recording right now, and we come up here and let's go to Retouch tool. So we'll select that right there, and let's sample this area right here. Hold down the option key, sample that area and let's see if we can erase that. We lost our brush, but we will get it back, we will persevere. Let's erase this. Oops. Didn't quite get it.
Alright, it's pretty good. One, two, three. I'm not going to fool around retouching. Alright, we're going to stop right here. The way that we stop recording is we go up here to this little stop mark, there we go. Alright, now here it is down here. Just got to get it before it goes away. This is our video. So I'm going to go ahead, let's click Done here. Let's get out of here.
We'll take this away, alright, let's watch our video, let's see how we did. So I'm going to click Play, this is the video that we captured using shift + command + five in our Screen Capture mode in Mac OS Mojave, alright. So I'm selecting the area, I hold down the option key, sample that area, start painting, failed paint, failed paint, go back to brush. Alright, so we go back to brush, here we go, second time. Second time's a charm in this sort of thing.
Select again, okay, we sample our area. Now we start painting. There goes the first one. Paint, get going, failed. Retry, good, got one. There we go. Alright, number two. Down, here goes number three. Number three, and success. Go back, mop up just a little bit, 'cause you can't help it. And we have successfully shown how to retouch icons in Mac OS Mojave using photos.
We made a 57 second movie together, let's upload it to Photos, go up here. Choose Add to Photos, wait for the bounce, where's the bounce? There's the bounce. Alright, we'll go ahead and click done here. Let's go to Photos. Here we are in Photos. Look at that, that's gone. There's our movie. Can play it right here.
Okay, we have it in our library. Let's go to Info, let's give it a name. Alright, gave it a name. Double-click, here it is, we have successfully made a movie together using the Video Capture in Mac OS Mojave and saved it to our Photos library. Isn't that fun?
