For Audio I chose MPEG-4 Audio and Best Quality. It won't let you save at higher than 44.1 sample rate, not 48. Odd. Save the Encoder Preset under a reasonable name, then select it as the active Encoder Preset. I called it "720p23.976". Set the Destination to "Record to Disk" and choose the file location. This includes a default filename: check "Auto increment filenames" and it will add a numeric suffix for each file recorded. Make sure that all the stuff you just set up appears in the window at the top of the panel and then click Save. In fact, all you have done here is to set up an Encoder Preset, because if you had wanted to set WC up for broadcast live streaming, this would not be the settings you would use. To set the Record parameters, click the little hard drive labelled "Record" in the top left of the WC main window and do most of the same thing again, except for the fact that you simply have to select the Encoder Preset that you created earlier. When you click this in future, it will start capturing to disc.

But just bear in mind that Wirecast is designed both to capture to disc ''and'' to stream live, so if you want live programmes to be in your future, here is where you set up how to talk to your streaming server.

Now we come to the tricky bits. Wirecast has five layers on which you can place content/sources. The default layer is #3 and as you currently have the Layer Panel visible, you will probably see that the only source there is is your Intensity Pro card on that layer. You can rename the layer to something more appropriate, such as "Video" by double-clicking on the label.

This is the layer to use to add additional video capture inputs – such as a second Intensity Pro card and/or an external Firewire capture device. Do this by adding a new Shot from the video device as above. You wil cut or fade between them simply by clicking on the panel in this window. If you wish you can start building lower thirds and other features and given enough time and effort (and probably some more people) you'll be able to produce live shows this way… but I suggest you read the Wirecast manual very soon indeed.

Now we're going to configure the audio side to bring the Skype call into the recording.
