How To Record a Video Diary On Your Mac

You can record a simple video diary on your Mac using your built-in camera and the QuickTime Player app. When you save the video, you can export it as a lower-resolution video to save space. You can use the comments field for the file to add comments and keywords. Save these to a folder and you can easily view them in a list by date.

    When recording with the built in camera on an iMac, is there some way to limit the recording area. When I record a video it covers too much of the room and I want to have the focus on me, like your corner image.

    Larry: When I record for my video, I get a lot more. Then I crop it out (inside Screenflow) to get the square you see. Search the Mac App Store for "Webcam Settings." It will do a little bit of a zoom for you if you like. But if you are recording for use in something else (iMovie, FCP, etc) then you usually just crop it at that point.
