When you're satisfied with your edit, you can click Continue recording to continue or click Save video to finish your recording and share it to mmhmm TV. 

Takes

Note: The takes feature is currently only available in mmhmm Studio.

With takes, you can redo recordings on a slide-by-slide basis instead of re-recording your entire presentation. During a recording session, mmhmm will automatically generate a take for each slide. An icon will appear next to the slide name to show that a take was recorded for that slide.

Tip: Start a new recording session if you want to re-record any of your slides or redo the take. There is no limit to the number of takes you can record.

To choose which take you’d like to use in the final presentation, select that take from the dropdown on the right side of the mode bar.
