How to get quality audio

Don’t be a noob – make sure that your audio is crisp and clear before uploading your latest creation to YouTube.

Think using Aimbot is a crime? Well, bad audio is worse. We show you how to set up your microphone correctly, and which voiceovers are best for your style of video. Watch us fix our audio by using some of the best effects included in Audacity software (completely free).


Using green screen and picture-in-picture

No Gaming channel is complete without dramatic zooms, green screen, and facecam footage!

Get that golden reaction caught on camera! Use chroma key to enhance your personality and place your facecam anywhere in the world – or simply cut it out to layer over your screen recording using PiP. Fashion yourself after the biggest online gamers in the world and add a little flair with sharp keyframed zooms using the best gameplay video editing software for YouTube HitFilm Express.
