Additionally, this free screen and audio recorder allows you to record screen, your voice, and face at the same time to create picture-in-picture or video-in-video effect. It is very simple to operate.

Step 1. Click Screen & Webcam and then you will be offered two options: Record screen while showing facecam; Record webcam while showing screen. The first option makes screen recording as the main video and webcam recording as a smaller one overlaying the main video. The second option has the opposite effect. Here we choose the first one as an example.
