For your best presentations with slides we recommend Swivl Screencasting. When you record your desktop at the same time you record yourself, viewers see and hear high-quality, dynamic presentations, arguably better than if they attended in person.
All Swivl users can also record regular videos with slides. This includes two steps:
Step 1: Uploading Slides to Swivl:
To get slides into the Swivl app so that you can present and capture them with video, you first need to upload them to Swivl Teams.
- Select “Upload slides”. Browse through your documents to select a file to upload. You can upload JPEG, PNG, PPT, KEY or PDF. Once you have selected the file you want, click Open. You can see the size limitations for the slides that can be uploaded in the article What are the maximum file sizes for uploading videos or slides?
- Click Upload to add the slides to your Library.
Step 2: Importing Slides to the Swivl app:
- Open the Swivl app.
- Log in using your Swivl Teams account credentials.
- Tap "Add Slides" on your Capture Screen.
- If you do not see the "Add Slides" button available on your capture screen, learn how to modify what you see on your Capture Screen by default in this article here.
- Your newly uploaded slides will automatically sync with your app Library.
- Any slides you have uploaded more than 30 days ago will still appear in the app Library, but will need to be re-synced with your app before use. Simply tap the sync button on the right.
- Tap the slides you want to incorporate and then you'll be taken back to the Capture screen to start your recording.
Record your video with slides:
- Once you have selected the slides you wish to use, start your recording.
- You'll get a preview of your video capture but in the main view, you'll be able to clearly see your slides.
- Advance to the next slide by pressing the right arrow on the Primary marker. To go back, press the left arrow.
- What results is perfectly time-stamped slides to match your live presentation.
- Advanced Exporting/Downloading Video and Slides Together in Swivl Teams are available for Pro users who have videos with slides.
