MultiCam Capture Lite

MultiCam Capture Lite

VideoStudio 2019 introduces new MultiCam Capture Lite. Create engaging videos and record screen and webcam simultaneously. View the preview screens for your content in one place and easily calibrate the color and brightness of each feed. With multiple angles recorded, you can go ahead and edit each view and select the angle you’d like to show as the videos play. Explore a variety of creative options, including picture-in-picture effects, or swiftly switch between camera angles to add interest and draw in viewers. This is the perfect combination to create engaging how-to tutorial videos, training videos, unboxing videos, and much more. With MultiCam Capture Lite and editing tools, we’re bringing you all of the options to produce engaging videos that are sure to grow your audience (as you grow your skill set!).
This tool is incredibly powerful, and extremely fun to play with!

What can you create with MultiCam Capture?

  • Training videos, webinars, or presentations that switch between a presenter and content on a computer screen
  • YouTube or other online videos, including product reviews, how-to videos, performances, and vlogs that switch between a webcam and other cameras to show different angles of a presenter, demo, or product

Getting started with MultiCam Capture is easy!

  1. Open the application.
  2. Set up your cameras.
  3. Click Record.

A video clip is produced for each recording device—each device is considered a source.

When you’re done recording, you can easily export your video clips to VideoStudio. This will automatically create a multicam editor file for you to edit clips together. Since videos were recorded together, they will automatically sync…meaning, all you have to do is press Play and click what angle to show as the video plays – or create a Picture in Picture effect and show both screens!

The MultiCam Capture workspace consists of two windows:

  • Record — the main application window
  • Source View — a secondary window with source previews and source settings

The Record window provides the following capture controls:

  • Record button — click to start the recording process
  • Stop Recording button — click to stop recording
  • Pause Recording button — click to pause the recording temporarily
  • Resume Recording button — click to continue a recording that you have paused

It also includes basic settings related to the project such as Project Name, where to save the project (Save To) and an option to create a project file in addition to separate video files for each source. A list of shortcut keys is also available in this window.

The Source View window includes a MultiCam area, where all camera sources can be viewed. Clicking a source makes it active in the Preview area and lets you adjust the corresponding settings in the Settings area.

To create a multi-camera project:

  1. Open MultiCam Capture. The first time you launch the application a Performance Check window appears to evaluate the best resolution for screen capturing. Click OK to accept the recommended setting.
  2. If you are using any additional cameras or an external microphone, connect them to your computer.
  3. Your computer screen, webcam, and each detected camera displays in the Source View window. Click a source in the MultiCam area to display the source in the Preview area and to adjust the settings.
  4. In the Record window, type a name for your project in the Project Name box, and choose a Save To location.
  5. When you are ready, click the Record button (or press F11) to start recording. If you need to pause, press the Pause button (or press F10). Click the button again to resume recording.
  6. When you are finished recording. press the Stop button (or press F11). Your captured files are saved to the location that you specified in the Save To box. You can now open the synchronized files in the video editing software of your choice, and finalize your project. If you saved to a project file, you’ll be able to import the project into the specified multi-camera editor.


Explore the settings tab and control screen recording settings, monitor settings, volume, mouse click animations, color, brightness and so much more.

Upgrade for more camera supports

VideoStudio comes bundled with MultiCam Capture Lite. This means,you can record two sources, for example your computer screen and your webcam. For more camera supports, upgrade to MultiCam Capture to work with additional camera angles.

    Do multiple cameras have to be installed prior to recording? I may have answered my own question. Sorry if I did

    I have Pinnacle Studio 24 Ultimate and updated MultiCam Capture. Then I have Logitech BRIO 4K Stream webcam. However, Multicam Capture do not find larger resolutions than 1920 × 1080. The same problem exist with Xsplit Vcam and Canon EOS Webcam Utility with the Canon cameras. I just want to capture screen and webcam at the same K4 resolution 3840 × 2160. I have also Camtasia 2020, it finds Logitech BRIO 4K Stream webcam 4K resolutions. However, I should like to use Multicam Capture, because it is more user friendly. Does webcam Corel MultiCam Capture support higher webcam resolutions than 1920 × 1080? It would make it much more professional.

    Using Version 1.0.0 64bit – MultiCam Capture to capture a singing/dancing video from my computer screen. The sound doesn’t sync up with the video when I play back the recording. Suggestions for advanced settings for Encode, Frame Rate and Latency would be appreciated (or even default settings since I tried changing and forgot what default was)

    Is there a way to have two audio sources for one screen? For instance, I want to record myself doing something on my computer, and I want to sound coming from whatever I’m doing on my laptop to come across, but I also want to be able to hear myself talk all in one clip. For some reason, I can only have one audio source. I have Lite, if that’s helpful. It came with my Corel Videostudio 2020.

    Hi there!
    I received MultiCam Capture Lite in a bundle of software and was excited to start recording, however I notice that it’s capped at 30fps? Is there anyway to get 60fps or does the premium version allow this? 30fps is no help to me when I want to screen record my artwork process

      Hello Rhiannon,

      Thank you for the feedback! The full version of MultiCam Capture allows for more simultaneous sources, but does not currently add additional capture settings or formats. We have sent your comment on to the VideoStudio team for their consideration.

    My application is for a live band with 3 different cameras. When you state “the program will sense your cameras..” I’m assuming that the cameras are transmitting via USB..yes? What is required if one of my camera’s only has an hdmi out? If additional hardware is required please advise. Thanks!

      Hello Johnnie,

      VideoStudio can detect cameras connected via USB, but HDMI is a little trickier. HDMI connections are typically one-directional, meaning you need a dedicated capture card in order to connect to an HDMI output for live video.

      Hope this helps!

    why the multi cam that I bought still does not recognize the cameras that I plug into my computer (hdmi). is window 10 which prevents your recognition of cameras?

      Hello Sylvain,

      Are you plugging the cameras into a capture card, or a video card? HDMI ports on video cards are only equipped to output video, and will not recognize or accept video input on those channels.

      If it is a capture card, we would suggest making sure you have the latest drivers installed before launching the program again.

    Does “MultiCam” only work for live streams? Most of my videos will include, drone and time lapse and will need to toggle between 3-5 cameras. Thank you in advance, please advise.

      Hello Dorothy,

      MultiCam is designed to capture streaming video, so you would need a way to have all video devices feeding into it directly in order to make use of it. The alternative is to capture your videos in advance, then import and edit them as you normally would.

      Hope this helps,

        Can i use my camcorder as a webcam with multi cam lite?

        If yes, do we need a capture card or any other devices?

          Hello Jason,

          Camcorders often require a capture card, but it depends on what outputs it has, and whether the camera supports a live connection. While USB devices can be detected and typically support this functionality, depending on the resolution you are capturing USB can be a limiting factor – especially as many camcorders use older USB specifications with lower maximum bitrates. Using a capture card and connecting the camera using the highest bandwidth video connection it offers (typically HDMI) is a more complex setup, but is typically the higher-quality and more reliable connection.
