OBS Studio - Free Screen Recording Software

Following on from yesterday's blog post about Quick Time, and its utility for tutors practicing distance learning, Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) offers another useful option for our tutors at Escape Studios. For those of who are switching to online delivery of our courses, OBS is easy to install and completely free to use, for Windows and Mac devices.

About OBS
OBS is a free and open-source recording program maintained by the OBS Project. There are versions of OBS available for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux. It's a useful piece of software, with the great advantage of being free.

Beginner's Guide
To see how to use OBS Studio, watch the easy-to-follow video above. Start in the Sources box, select the + sign, and then go to "Display Capture". Make sure that "make source visible" is checked.

Best of all OBS now has a pause button, which means you can pause in mid-recording to make a cup of tea or answer the front door.

Online Teaching at Escape Studios Continues
Our students may not be attending class in person these days, but teaching continues. Last night Michael Morgan taught his animation evening class online using Zoom; tonight Plamen Ananiev will teach Toonboom Harmony, and Sandra Duchiewicz will teach Concept Art.  Jonathan McFall is also teaching his Monday evening class in Character Creation on an online platform. So, albeit in unfamiliar ways, it is business as usual at Escape Studios

The Escape Studios Animation Blog offers a personal view on the art of animation and visual effects. To find out more about our new BA/MArt, now recruiting for September 2020, follow this link.   To apply, visit the offical page here.
