You can add text to create a title or caption for your video. You can also adjust the alignment of your text using the buttons described below. The captions may be changed and formatted while recording is taking place (to the live picture). To add captions to a completed recording, we recommend using VideoPad video editing software.

Alignment

The alignment can be adjusted to left, center, right, vertical top, vertical center and vertical bottom.

Caption

Insert total time, current year, month, day, hour, minute or second by typing the following:

Include Timestamp

When checking this checkbox it will add a new line to the text caption containing the timestamp with the format: %YYYY%-%MM%-%DD% %HH%:%MIN%:%SS%.

Size

Adjust the size of the caption.

Margin Padding

Adjust the margin padding of the caption.

Font

Adjust the font name, font style, height percent, effects, and font color.

Font Color

Click within the color box to adjust the font color (the color of the letters) of the caption.

Background Color

Click within the color box to adjust the background color of the caption if this check box is selected.

Outline Color

Click within the color box to adjust the outline color of the caption if this check box is selected.

Default

The Default button will erase the caption and reset the settings to their default values.

When using Text Captions, "%" delimits a variable. This means that if you type "%%", you will only see "%".
