This series of articles is going to show you how to use screen recording software to create a "video recipe" to document the steps followed for sequencing an application. In this article, we’ll be using Community Clips — a  Microsoft’s Office Labs tool to record clips that can be shared with community. Once installed, you will see a little, blue monitor icon with a question mark in your system tray. Remember, your recording software is not installed on the same machine as your sequencer. Your Sequencer should be accessible in a remote window, or in a VM on the same machine. In this series, my Sequencer is running on a Virtual PC virtual machine.

To record your sequence: 1. Start your sequencer (virtual) machine and have your installation files or media ready. 2. Click on the Community Clips icon in your system tray and select “Start Recording Application” and then the sequencer from the list provided. 3. Sequence your application. 4. Click on the Community Clips icon in your system tray and select “Stop Recording”. 5. The preview window opens. Save your video.
