@LightBurn I record in Active Presenter and I edit out most of my “ums” in Davinci Resolve :- . Active Presenter is chock full of features and probably the best screen capture tool I’ve ever used. I used to use OBS Studio & Davinci Resolve for my private (company) ATM coding training videos, but I was preaching to the Choir in those; YouTube is a whole different audience.
Active Presenter is free software and has a very small learning curve. The graphical UI is self explanatory, unlike most other software. I use the program window capture, and then when it’s done, watch it and add the zoom on the timeline as I playback; it’s an overlay. The rest of the edits I do in Davinci Resolve, like adding graphics, adjusting the soundtrack, adding cuts and other videos and such. But I guess the entire editing process can be done in Active Presenter. I’m just used to using Davinci Resolve from work.
Thanks again for the compliments! Now retired, mine aren’t like the entertaining videos on YouTube. I’m not making them to score the million subscriber plaques, but more to try and help my fellow hobbyists.
