Unlink Screencast & Webcam

Hello!  I was wondering if I could separate my webcam recording from the screencast.  I see a little chain there, so I'm assuming there's a way to unlink them.  

Maybe I didn't think things completely through, but I'm trying to get familiar with this software, so I recorded a screencast of several pieces of streaming video and then I recorded with the webcam to get the voiceover in so I can play with the PIP.  I couldn't see a way to record the webcam without recording the screen.

Hi there Jessica,

You should be able to move to the point in the timeline where your screencast or webcam video begin - then you can click on the video mix button. For example, if you wanted to hide the screencast, but show the webcam video, you would click on "B". 

Here's a tutorial that will walk you through the process:

There's also some information on recording just a webcam video, as well. Hopefully that helps :)

 I recently posted this question myself and just found an answer from this discussion. I would suggest in the future to allow these to disconnect or unlink. This would provide flexibility to add a picture between the screencast (split screencast but not the webcam). This would enable editing of the screencast but maintain the Webcam.
