Creating online course videos can be a daunting task, especially when juggling apps like Canva and Loom. Fortunately, Detail 4 offers a comprehensive, all-in-one solution that streamlines the process and enhances the quality of your content.

Why use Detail to record your online course videos?

Streamlined workflow

  • Instant presets for course creators: With our latest update, setting up your recording environment is quick and easy, simplifying the course creation process by eliminating the need for complex setups.

Confidence in presentation

  • Record with confidence: Utilize the built-in teleprompter to record seamlessly with a script, ensuring smooth delivery without the need for extensive memorization.

  • Put your face anywhere: Easily position yourself in any corner of the video to enhance engagement and personalization.




Dynamic visuals

  • Stand out with layout options: Make your course videos more engaging by swapping between green screen, full screen, grid, and picture-in-picture layouts.

  • Record once, add slides later: Focus on getting your script recorded right and add slide images to the background after the recording is done.

  • Swap out slide mistakes in a tap: Update your slides without re-recording by simply replacing the image in the background of those clips.

  • Record multiple angles at once: Connect two iOS devices to record from multiple angles simultaneously. This is perfect for whiteboarding, demos, art, building, and any scenario where a second angle is beneficial.
