Windows Panopto Recorder

Update Session Settings

Use the drop-down menu next to Folder to choose the Panopto folder that the session will upload to.

By default, the selected folder will be the same folder that you launched the recorder from.

Use the text box next to Name to update the title of your session.

Select Primary Sources

Use the drop-down menu next to Video to select the camera you would like to use for this session.

If you do not want to include video, select None.

Use the drop-down menu next to Audio to select the microphone you would like to use for this session.

If you do not want to include audio, select None.

You must select at least one primary source in order to create a recording.

Select the quality level of your recording (Standard, High, or Ultra).

Panopto does save a local copy of your recording to your computer and the higher the quality the larger the file sizes will be.

Select Secondary Sources

If you would like to include PowerPoint slides in your recording, check the box next to Capture PowerPoint.

You do not have to upload your PowerPoint to Panopto. The PowerPoint just needs to be saved on the computer you are using to record (not on the cloud) and in presentation mode (full screen mode) while you are recording.

You should only have one PowerPoint open at a time while recording.

If you would like to record your screen during this session, check the box next to Capture Main Screen and/or Capture Second Screen.

You will only see the Capture Second Screen option if you have more than one monitor connected to your computer.

If you have more than one camera connected to your computer, you can include the video from that camera in your session by selecting Add Another Video Source.

If you choose to capture your screen, viewers will see anything that appears on your screen during the recording. Be sure to close any private content including your Sakai Gradebook and email.

Record your Session

To begin recording, select the Record button or press the F8 key on your keyboard.

If you are including a PowerPoint presentation in your recording, you must put the PowerPoint in presentation (full screen) mode for Panopto to capture the slides. You will not be able to view the recorder while your presentation is in full screen mode.

The Record button will be replaced by the Stop and Pause buttons. Select Stop, or F10 when you are finished with your recording.

You can pause your session by selecting Pause or F9. The Pause button will be replaced by a Resume button. You can resume your recording by selecting the Resume button or F9.

When you pause a Panopto recording the timer will keep increasing, because the recorder continues to capture the session. Viewers will not see this portion of the session, but creators can access this content in the Panopto editor.
