Open ViP and click the 'Create ViP' tab
Select your video device
Select your audio device
Start Preview, and check that your video is capturing and audio recording
Open your PowerPoint file
Select a save destination and name for your recording

Congratulations! You have now successfully recorded your ViP presentation! Three files will now be saved to the destination folder you specified: a ViP file, your recorded video, and your PowerPoint presentation.
Viewing a recorded ViP Presentation
After recording a presentation with ViP, you can view it, seeing both the slides and video side-by-side. To do this, simply follow these steps:
Click the 'View ViP' tab
Open the presentation ViP file from the saved destination (all ViP files are saved as .vip)
Both the slides and video will begin playing at the same time. Pause, stop, play, and scroll as you like!
ViP is ideal for evaluating presentations, whether they are just for practice, or the final presentation that counts. To evaluate a presentation:
Click the 'View ViP' tab
Open the ViP presentation you wish to evaluate and view it.
You can then evaluate by selecting the number of stars per evaluation criteria and provide comments in the 'Evaluation' box at the bottom of the page.
Click 'Save' when your evaluation is complete (your evaluation will be saved as an .evl file).
Set the evaluation criteria
You can set the evaluation criteria as needed for each ViP presentation. Simply follow these basic steps:
Click the 'Create Evaluations' Page
Select the ViP file you wish to set the evaluation criteria for
Either select one of the pre-set criteria groups, or create your own
Save your new criteria once complete
When you open the ViP file in 'View ViP', the new evaluation criteria will be available.
Converting ViP files to videos
ViP files are multimedia, consisting of a video recording, a presentation slideshow. You can use the software to convert these ViP recordings into a single video file, which can be played on common media players. To convert a ViP file into a video:
Click the 'Convert ViP' tab
Open the 'ViP' file you wish to convert
Use the mixer to switch between the slideshow and the presentation video while converting. Whatever is being displayed on the preview, is what the final video will display. You can also adjust the volume while converting.
Congratulations! You have now created a video which can be played on common media players! Upload to a website such as YouTube for easy sharing! Store on CD, or convert into DVD using another program. View some examples here.
