Record your desktop screen online just using your browser, without downloading any app,
plugin, or extension. Revise, edit, and export your walkthrough video from the same place.
Trim your screen recording and crop out irrelevant areas to show just the actions that
matter. Overlay a logo and add text with your brand name, a title or a message.
Annotate your screen recordings. Encircle important graphics, buttons or concepts and
use arrows to relate a text annotation with the right element in the scene.
Annotations draw attention to important elements in a tutorial video. Highlight the
ideas and areas that matter and make your content easier to understand.
Capture text from images
Capture text from screenshots, images, and videos. Save typing and get the text
directly from any image or video from the internet capturing a simple screenshot.
Copy and paste any screenshot to extract the text present in it. Click the capture text
button and get the recognized text into the clipboard to paste it somewhere.
How to make a video tutorial efficiently
Short video tutorials are great to showcase a product, a method, or an app. Here we show
how to record the screen and make the edits to create effective video tutorials with very little effort.
For a tutorial to be effective, we would rather keep it short and clear. We must focus on
specific operations. Most times, it is better to make one tutorial for each feature or idea that we want to
Instead of using an application to record the screen and one another to edit the recording,
the most convenient approach is to use a solution that integrates both. An example is Abraia console that
leverages the capability of your browser to record the screen and to access a powerful video editing API
without the need of any software download.
1. Record the screen
The steps are simple. Once in the Abraia console, we click the record screen button. We
perform all the actions we intend to show at work. Once we are done, we click stop. The recording will appear
right in the editor of the Abraia console.
2. Edit the video
Now, we can trim the video capture so that it starts and ends exactly where we wish. As
well, we can set the video size by entering a custom value or simply choosing a preset -Instagram square,
Story, or other-, and pad or crop out part of the video. In this case we may move the video over the canvas to
keep visible the part we want to show.
3. Export and share
Once done with editing, we are ready to click on the export and share button. You may
simply download the video to your computer and share it elsewhere or rather you may share it directly to a
social network app from your phone or tablet.
4. Create video templates
When doing tutorials for a brand, it is good to keep the branding consistent. The texts,
the fonts, the colors. Once you have crafted your final design for a tutorial, you may save it in the Abraia
console. Afterwards you can reuse it easily by clicking on the template and changing the video or tweaking the
size settings or even the texts.
