How To Record Your Face and Screen in Mac at the same time - for FREE

I think we all can agree it’s pretty easy to record videos using our smartphones or using the webcam from our laptops. And with all the cool features that our smartphones has to offer, it often makes video recording quite fun.

But if you want to do some sort of tutorial video, like ‘how to make a purchase on your website’, or if you’re a trainer and you want to tech someone ‘how to setup wordpress’ for example, then you might need to do a screen recording from your laptop instead. And although there are times that you might just want to record your screen, there could also be instances that you might want to record the screen and your face at the same time.

“Doing screen and face recording is a great way to do tutorial videos


Now there are plenty of software out there that can do this job. And they do come with all sorts of cool features too, but they do cost money.

So a few years back when I was just starting out doing tutorial videos myself, I researched through many of these software and while I found some to be very good, I didn’t really want to spend money on those expensive software. Luckily for me, I discovered how I can do face and screen recording in Mac using Quicktime, for free!

Sure it doesn’t have all the fancy features that other software has, but it does the job for me. And quite importantly, I didn’t need to do any extra editing work to the videos – I can use them straightaway. Unless of course I want to trim them or something, but that could also be easily done in iMovie, which is also a free tool in Mac.

I made the tutorial video (above) a few years back, showing you just how to set it up. It’s pretty easy and it still works the same way today. Do try it and enjoy making your videos!
