2) Allocate file space (Optional)
Go to File->Allocate file space and set the maximum size of video capture file.
3) Check preferences
Go to Edit->Preferences. You can capture maximum 3 hours of video depending upon the hard drive space available. If you want to capture less than 15 minutes video, select [27,000 15 minutes @ 30fps]. If you want to capture a video more than 15 minutes, select [324,000 3 hours @ 30fps]. Remember 15 minutes and 3 hours are maximum limits. If you want to capture a video - say 3 minutes, you will choose 15 minutes. During video capture, you can stop capture anytime by pressing the right mouse button on video screen. Make sure that [sync video to audio] option is checked. Hit [ok].
4) Capture Video
Go to Capture->Video. A dialog box will open. From where you can select the capture rate, set the capture length, check if you want to capture audio, select compression if you want. It is recommended to leave the compression at its default settings. NOTE: for audio capture, you will have to select audio device from Windows Audio properties. You can do so by double clicking the little speaker icon on lower right corner of windows.
