Setting default values for webcam recording settings

When editing screencasts, I have a tedious series of settings to make:

  • Set Shadow to 25%, blur 8 
  • Add video filter (Hue: 25%)
  • Set crop
  • Add Chroma Key filter

Automating this would cut my editing nearly in half...Is there a way to either set defaults for these options, or to save an apply all at once?

If not within ScreenFlow, any recommendations for other scripting software to accomplish these tasks?

    If you add that to your shot as a Video Action after you create the settings, save it as a Template Action and Name the Action. You can then add it as a Video Action Preset

     

    The Template Action you create will appear in the upper left Video Action pulldown

     

    They will also appear in the Template Actions menu

  • CraigS Thanks for the guidance...I don't think I would have gotten there on my own!! Do you guys have a book (something like the CSS Cookbook, or other O'Reilly titles) or online course to show deep dive features?

    Matt Sullivan You're welcome of course. No books but we have online Tutorials.

    Chris Mattia  has a course on Lynda.com and his often in this forum to offer tips as well.

  • Matt Sullivan check out http://go.mattia.us/screenflow I've tried to do a fairly deep dive coverage for ScreenFlow. There are courses for both SF6 & SF7.

     

    CraigS wow how did that feature slip by me?  Apparently I have a whole new chapter to add to my next course update. Thanks for that tip!

    Chris Mattia  really neat feature worth expanding on. We have about 90 seconds which barely scratches the surface of the power.

  • Very cool!  This made me think about using AppleScript to further add automation to SF, but after a quick open of ScriptEditor and then looking for the ScreenFlow AppleScript Dictionary it doesn't look any hooks have been added.  #featureRequest

    I think others at times asked for an AppleScript Dictionary although the developers may be thinking about their options.

    LP can log that for you though.
