Using CamStudio With Cubase/Sibelius (help?)
I really need help with something which is causing me a massive headache please !! Aghhhh......
I would like to try and make a couple of videos to whack up on You Tube. What I need is the software were you can film the entire screen of your PC (so exactly what someone would see at their end if they were taking remote access of your computer). There are many instructional videos on You Tube that show (music software products such as) Cubase/Sibelius were the narrator just talks in the background and all you see is his PC screen and what he is doing on it within the music program.
One option is to hold a camcorder in front of the screen but this method looks a bit amateur.
A friend of mine uses CamStudio to create his music videos (though he uses it in a slightly different way). Well anyway, I spent THREE days now trying to get this screen catcher software recording the elements of audio I require, though to no avail. The CamStudio captured all the screenwork in Cubase/Sibelius and otherwise, but SOUND was a different story. It would record me talking into a headset mic and would playback fine. Also, it would record my external synth (running into an external soundcard Interface) and back out thru the connected headphones. What it damn well would NOT do (and I swear I have tried every possible permutation I could think of) is :-
Record the INTERNAL sound of audio files playing in Cubase !! I could hear them when I pressed play (with the CamStudio running in 'record' mode), but no sound whatsoever during playback. So just like a silent movie picture.
So anyway, what I need is software which will (all at once on the same PC) :-
Record my voice (narration) thru my Sennheiser headset mic,
Record the SYSTEM SOUND,
and Record the full-size screen imagery as I film the tutorial.
I am totally at a loss on how to get this to work ?? The issue seems to be that it does not like the Steinberg C12+ external interface (but the problem is that I NEED this in order for Cubase to function !!).
I hope I have explained this ok and I thank you all in advance for any kind assistance offered. I am now at a total loss and have asked so many friends and family who are not able to advise. I also did watch Terry's You Tube instructionals but they did not deal with the problem as it presents itself in my (perhaps) unique scenario.
If it can not cope with performing all of the three aforementioned tasks at once, then I would be happy to drop the Senheisser headset mic and record the narration as an 'overdub' at a separate stage (say, in Audacity).
I have also tried Fraps and APowerSoft this week. Someone has also recommended ATube Catcher.
This is my first post so I hope I have submitted it to the correct category. Apologies if now.
Many thanks in advance guys...
