How to get started

One Button Studio InstructionsWelcome to the One Button Studio! Getting started is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Insert your E-campus USB into the dock to begin
  2. Press the spacebar to start/stop recording
  3. Record and follow on screen instructions

There’s no need to adjust the lights, settings, the camera or anything else.

Recording

For successful videos, follow the steps below. 

  • Do not adjust any of the equipment in the room. Make sure your USB drive has enough free space (a 20-minute recording will take up approximately 1 GB of space).
  • Your USB drive must also be formatted as FAT, FAT32, or exFAT. Formatted USBs are available for use at the Gardner-Harvey Library InfoDesk.
  • Insert your USB drive into the dock to activate the lights and camera.
  • There is space in the room for a laptop, projector, or iPad for displaying a PowerPoint or using a teleprompter app. You can borrow these, as well as other tech equipment, at the Gardner-Harvey Library InfoDesk.
  • The green screen in the room may be lowered for use as the background with your video. (This studio is designed to capture video with the Chroma key green background. Any post processing or effects would need to be applied outside of this room on another computer.)
  • The software will create the video file in .mp4 format.

Please report any problems with this room or equipment to the E-Campus (ecampushelp@miamioh.edu).
