- [Narrator] Once I've prepared all of my materials,…and am ready to begin recording,…I'm going to launch Camtasia 9.…I have the choice of creating a new project,…creating a new recording,…or opening a project that I've already started.…I'm going to click on "New Project",…so that we can take a look around the software.…Don't worry about remembering…all of these details right now.…As you use the tools and become…more familiar with the program,…the interface will become easier to navigate.…For now, let's just get a general idea…of how everything is set up.…
The menu across the top of the screen…has the options of "file", "edit",…"modify", "view", "share", or "help".…If I want to do something but I'm not sure how,…browsing through these menus will often provide the answer.…Just under that is the "Record" button.…If I want to capture new video of my screen or webcam,…that is where I want to go.…Below the "Record" button,…down the left-hand side of the screen,…I have another menu.…"Media" is my clip bin.…
That's where I can access any of the files…
