TurboDemoHow to Create Annotated Tutorial Videos and GIFs

While there are plenty of screen capturing tools out there, most of them are too simplistic to solve tasks many developers and tutors have. Recording what’s going on on the screen is just half of the job. The challenge starts when you need to annotate every step and action you record.

And Balesio’s TurboDemo can help you with this to say the least. The program is a “camera” that records everything from your screen and puts this into a Flash animation or a slideshow presentation with custom annotations, balloons, arrows and highlights. And then you can upload or share this new video or presentation with a click.

It goes without saying, creating tutorials, explanations, how-tos, user experiences, demos or walkthroughs is much simpler with the right tool in your hand. TurboDemo is the right tool.

‘One-click’ interface

When you shoot with a real camera, you simply press one button. You don’t navigate endless menus, you don’t answer 25 questions of the ‘designed-to-help-you-wizard’, and neither do you wait while the camera downloads the latest update. You click, it shoots. That’s it.

TurboDemo implements the same principle: you press one hotkey, and the program starts recording. You press another one, and the record stops.

Similarly, you add callouts, balloons and highlights to the final record. With minimum clicks.

Effortless capture

TurboDemo captures windows and applications regardless of the screen resolution or operating system. It captures classic, themed or tiled Windows interface. You can capture the entire screen or a part of it. Mouse or keyboard actions. With sound or silently.

And whatever capturing options you select, the goes smooth and effortless.

Multiple purposes

TurboDemo creates a lot more than screen videos. In fact, thanks to a range of editing tools you can make anything from a simple “How to” video to a complex hierarchical interactive quiz.

To name a few:

  • Drawing tools allow you to put various shapes like lines, arrows and rectangles to the image. This brings in capability to highlight certain areas of the video, put focus to given elements or controls, or supply feedback if you make these shapes interactive.
  • With annotation tools you can make your videos or slideshows much more explanatory by providing balloons, callouts and comment boxes of varying size, font and colors.
  • The support for hyperlinks coupled with interactive textboxes and mouse areas can turn your video to a full-featured online navigation menu.
  • The built-in e-learning controls are ideal to create quizzes and surveys. For marketing or education purposes alike.

Various output formats

As we mentioned above, with TurboDemo it is completely possible to create slideshow presentations, AVI and Flash videos. There are other options too. For example, if you want a time-limited tutorial, you can make a Flash or Java demo with specific time limitation. Want a stand-alone executable? TurboDemo will create one for you.

Slideshows can be exported to Word as well as to a set of images in the predefined format. Additional navigation menus and enhanced compression are here to enable more complex interaction while keeping the file size small.
