TechSmith is working on a modification to capture system sounds that should be out in the near future. For the moment if you capture sounds with your microphone then it will also pick up background noise. Working in a quiet place is the way to do it.

Hi Steve,

You can definitely mute your audio when recording with Snagit. When you get ready to start a recording, all you need to do is select the mute button.



If the microphone button is green, then your audio is turned on. It should look like this when it's turned off.



Thanks for posting!

How does that get rid of background noise while still capturing audio?

At the end of his post, Steve asked if there was any way "to have the capture record with the mute on." My response was to show him how to do that.

You're right that you have to record in a quiet place if you don't want to have background noise when you're capturing audio.

Got you. I thought the question was - how do I mute background noise while creating a video capture? I suppose Steve will tell us.

There is already a solution. Record your audio in a quiet space. That's why Recording Studios and Recording Booths have been created.

For one thing, I'd be shocked if TechSmith were to add this as a feature to SnagIt. If any application were to have it, it would be Camtasia.

But from a purely technical standpoint I can't see where such an option would be feasible. How do you program a software application to recognize ONLY your voice and record that while ignoring everything else?

Cheers... Rick :)
