Panopto record mode - powerpoint question
When I am in record mode to voiceover my slides, I need to set powerpoint to play (slideshow mode), which in turn makes it full screen, which then hides the Panopto controls. How can I see what the end viewer would see -eg my presentation with my video insert in the corner, whilst recording the audio? (photo of it working in slide view mode, but not in slideshow mode)
I found i had to first launch powerpoint into slideshow mode then select alt+tab to get back to panopto in the browser. Now when you select share screen you should see you slide show as an option. Next i choose to pop out my video (i think this only works in chrome) I then hit record and click back on my slideshow. I hope that helps :)
or is your case being on a mac it would be cmd+tab
Daryl has this right! It is a little tricky right now to record a full screen slideshow presentation. Here is a step-by-step:
Thanks Daryl, I tried that and can now see the real presentation not the preview. Kathryn, those steps are really clear, I couldn't find that in the help documents.
The tab options given in the help documents to pause the recording don't work at all for me - can I check, it's meant to be alt/cmd/p (UK mac keyboard)? At the moment to end I need to cmd+tab back to the panopto screen, which then takes a few more seconds to allow me to manually press stop. Pause would be better cause then I can eg switch feeds to a pre-recorded video to continue the presentation with a different input. I could do that with the editing software after but it's simpler to record it all correctly in the first place.
Thanks for the feedback! - we are working on updating some of our Capture documentation to make the steps more clear for recording with Powerpoint.
Capture (the in-browser recorder used in Panopto Pro) unfortunately currently doesn't have a pause function. (The keyboard shortcut you saw is for Panopto for Mac, an installed recording application that is only available when using Panopto Enterprise).
But if you'd like to see that in the product in the future, please add it as a feature request here:https://community.panopto.com/categories/feature-requests

So the only way to create a video of composite sources that switches during the video (eg powerpoint plus a pre-recorded video), would be to record it sectionally and then combine? Are there instructions for this please?
So there are a couple of ways to do it, both using the editor:
