Hi,

Like many more of us days, I use Teams and Zoom to communicate with students. 

I often use Finale to demonstrate certain things and I hav a question for you:

I want that my students can see the tool pallets when I explain how to do something in Finale. It seems like the present state is that you can only see the results, not the prosess behind it.

Set your Zoom screen share to show the entire screen, not just the Finale window.

Oh, I'll try that.

Thank you!

If only demonstrating the visual, MikeR's suggestion is what you need.

 

If you try to share the audio at the same time, that can be a royal pain to do so from Finale since it involves the Zoom Audio Driver and setup is different on Mac (much easier) vs Win. There's a ton of documentation on that from Zoom and others. Far easier to pre-record that part of the lesson and show it as a Movie using Screen Sharing. BTW, Screen Sharing in Zoom now defaults to silent unless the Share Computer Audio box is checked in the lower left corner—and you can't save checked as a preference. Grrrr.... I hate Zoom but am pretty good at it being an essential tool in my work. Know thine enemy.

 

I've managed to avoid Teams even though a friend is Microsoft's VP of that division so I can't speak to that.

(I couldn't find exactly how to quote someone even with the quote button, so maybe that will suffice.)

Hi Mike,

If you don't mind, would you describe how you would pre-record? I've been wanting to share with friends by email some videos of Finale as my scores play back. I've tried Snagit and OBS Studio, both of which work fine except that they record my audio at disappointingly low levels. I'm sure this is because I'm using hardware sound modules through a mixer with USB out (i.e. an audio interface) rather than my PC's "system audio".

Just wondering what you'd use, to see if it is a possible alternative to the above. Thank you.

Mac or Windows? If Mac, I can make a short video this week and post it to my YouTube channel then post the link here. It may or may not be a little different in Windows these days — I gave away my last Win laptop to someone with greater need than I.

According to a previous post (1 month ago) J JOHN MIXSON is using Windows 10.

Hello, yes it's Windows 10 (& Finale 26). This PC is not quite up to the system reqs to use Windows' built-in gaming share feature, but I'm not talking real time sharing anyway. Thank you.

Zoom doesn't use that so it's not an issue.

 

As I wrote earlier, It may or may not be a little different in Windows these days. If you were doing real time sharing, it would be way different. I'll get to it.

Ok, here's a 7 minute video I made. Part One shows doing a live presentation; Part Two shows prerecording a lesson using a screen recording app. I am not using the Zoom Audio Driver

This Knowledge Base article tells about using the Zoom Audio Driver. Some have good luck with this while others do not. It's less problematic if your system audio is set to 48k but it's now supposed to work if your system is at 44.1kHz.
