Default Recording Video in Reaper

I want to do a Tutorial in Reaper for a friend, but I'm not too sure about how to go about doing it. I have a program now called WebcamMax that I know how to use. It can record my internal, built-in mic on my PC. But how would I go about recording both the output from Reaper and the output of my mic since both require that I be using a specific driver?

Can anyone point me to a post or a guide on how to record video in Reaper?

Thanks.

The free and excellent CamStudio is I think the de facto standard for making screen videos and will also let you specify audio input.

So either set your mic port in CamStudio, and disable that input in Reaper (preferences) - or opposite, make a track in Reaper for the mic voice and disable that input in Camstudio.

If you still get issues, you could try another driver like ASIO4ALL in Reaper.

This looks nice, I'll definitely look into this.

But in the mean time, are there any applications that record the system sounds exclusively?

Thanks.

Are you planning to have Reaper with no sound, but talk into mic through system sound and record that to video? If so then you can disable the audio in Reaper so the mic will work in your webcam app.

If you want both sound from Reaper and mic sound, make a track in Reaper for the mic and either:

1. Record all of it onto another track in Reaper and capture the video with no sound and then later use another video app to glue the two together.

or

2. Record the sum output of Reaper into the video capture program as you capture.

Your best bet is really to get friendly with CamStudio as you can choose to capture with no audio, mic or line input, etc etc.

I'm not sure, but I'm getting an error when I try to record my speakers:

---------------------------
Note
---------------------------
WaveoutGetSelectControl() failed.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

I am selecting the driver responsible for playback. I tried the same thing with my headphones driver, and still no luck.

On the other hand, I've run into a program called BBFlashback that can record audio from the system and that works. But I think I've had some latency issues with that program... I was looking for an alternative.

Default Microphone and system sound video

I just did a tutorial with some free software called Apowersoft Free Screen Recorder which I downloaded from http://www.apowersoft.com/free-online-screen-recorder

It allows you to select microphone or system sound or both. It worked for me.

see this thread: http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=143233

Screenflow is the best for mac. You can record webcam, screen, external audio and computer sounds all at once. Great editing too.

It’s 10 years late, but here’s my take on this problem: I built a bridge between REAPER and OBS so that you can start/stop recording in both in sync. The resulting video just shows up in the REAPER timeline, ready to edit.

Are you sure you didnt bribe all these suddenly-appearing demanders of reaper recording video so you could promote your bridge?

Seriously, I am yet another who is considering this & was very pleased to see your vid, as I just started getting to grips with OBS. Thanks!
