Screencasting can be utilized for a variety of purposes. Whether you’re looking to showcase a new product, or trying to educate end-users with a quick tutorial, screencast videos allow you to convey information simply and easily.

But when screencasting isn’t done properly, you can end up with a boring video that no one ends up watching. Check out this guide to shooting your laptop screen with the right techniques to make your next screencast more professional and exciting.

Welcome: Screen Magic After Effects Template

After Effects now has a new Screen Magic template to liven up the screencasting experience. With a Screen Magic After Effects template, you can make visually engaging screencasts without a camera. The template allows you to skip past the whole process of filming your screencast on your computer. All you need is your screen capture footage – then you’re ready to go.

How Does the Template Work?

A screencast that’s stuck at the same camera angle and view throughout the whole video ends up coming across as slow-paced and monotonous. The Screen Magic After Effects template allows you to change the framing of your screen in just a simple click of a button. That means you can show the exact part of the screen that you want to highlight without having to record completely new footage. If you need to adjust to a particular angle, you can change the position and scale of the corresponding layer. The template also comes with additional features like slow zooms and subtle pans.

Jeremy Wick, Head of Video at Sticker Mule, recommends editing your screencast before adding it to the template. That means having all scripting, voiceovers, and screen recording done beforehand. Once you have the edited screencast footage ready, export it at the highest resolution and drop it into After Effects.

You’re also able to change up the background screen of your video while keeping all the camera angles. See for yourself:
