How to zoom in on complex diagrams when recording

This is a brief overview of the tools used to create a zoomable video using, Miro, OBS, and Descript. In just a few simple steps, you'll learn how to build a presentation packed with movement that captures your learner's attention.

First, create your presentation slides using PowerPoint, Google Slides, or your preferred presentation software. Focus on crafting clear, concise content and visually appealing designs.

Next, import your slides into Miro, an online collaborative whiteboard. This powerful tool allows you to enhance your presentation by creating frames around each slide. The beauty of Miro lies in its ability to zoom in on detailed content within your slides, making it easier for your audience to follow along and grasp complex ideas.

Now, it's time to record your presentation. For this, we recommend using OBS, a free and open-source screen recording software. Set up your recording parameters in OBS, ensuring that you select the MP4 format for optimal compatibility. With OBS running, navigate through your presentation in Miro, zooming in on key content as needed. Remember to speak clearly and at a comfortable pace, while also using your cursor to highlight important areas of the screen to focus on.

Once you've completed your recording, upload the MP4 file to Descript, an all-in-one audio and video editing platform. Descript's AI tools help you identify any gaps of silence or filler words in your presentation, allowing you to refine your delivery and create a more polished final product. Finally, export your edited presentation from Descript, and you'll have a professional-quality, engaging video ready to bring into your course on HeatSpring.
