1. 0000 Purchase Upgrade And Installation: Hello and welcome. Now this video you're looking at the website Tech Smith and Tech Smith is where you would buy your legal copy of Camp Tasia. I don't have a copy of Can't Asia. All you need to do is to go to the texas dot com website and click the buy now button. Now you can buy a download version or you can have a disc sent to you, and you can also have a maintenance agreement. Now. What the maintenance agreement will do is it will allow you to have camped Asia upgraded for 50% of the cost of a new license. Typically, you would have to pay the full price of an upgrade. But if you do the maintenance agreement, you'll be able to get that at half price, and then they've got some other benefits here also. Now the other thing you want to take note of is going to be the area for system requirements, and you'll find that in the left most corner. If you go to this link, you want to make sure that your system matches up with these system requirements. And since camped Asian now stalls on both windows and the Mac. You want to make sure that you understand the individual requirements, and then there's some additional requirements here for Windows that you want to take note up. If you're going to be using some of the analysts, for example, you'll likely be using the and one for a power point. You want to make sure that you are able to use these as well as the video recording equipment. So now if everything now checks out for you and you don't have a current copy of Camped Asia, then you can just click the add to cart button, and then you can actually go ahead and pick up Camp Tasia Studio. Now it's quite possible that you may have a previous version of Camp Tasia already. And if that is the case, then camped. Asia will typically send you a message when you open the program, giving you the option that you can actually go to upgrade. You get this message if you don't have the most current version of Camped Asia, which is camped Asian nine. You want to click the upgrade now, but we'll typically bring you to the pricing area and you'll notice that it is going to be about half of the cost, because if you're gonna purchase it out right now, the other thing is, of course, you can actually go ahead and get the maintenance agreement also, and then it'll add on an additional feet. Now, once you've done that, you can click the add to cart button and you'll be provided with the opportunity to get some other up cells. However, if you don't need them, all you need to do is I do pick up the Camp Tasia upgrade and or the maintenance agreement . Now, in some cases, if you wait just a minute, you'll notice that Camp Tasia or Tech Smith will offer you a 5% discount. And there is no special science for you to get this discount. Typically, they'll add it to your account if you don't check out right away. So once you have your 5% discount, if you're pricing is what you want, then you can go ahead and check out. Now, when you get your upgrade certificate, you are going to want to keep this information, and the reason is that Camp Tasia nine will run side by side with any other Camp Tasia version that you have. So in other words, it's not going to replace Version eight or version seven or whatever version that you have . It can actually work side by side with that other version. So you are going to want to take this information. Put it inside of your password manager, where it is that you keep your licenses as well as your e mails. So once you've done this, go ahead and download the new version of Camp Tasia. Now, if you're on a Windows PC, camped, Asian nine will download direct to your hard drive. Just click the save button and camped. Asia will start to download. Now you're going to see Camped Asia in your corner. If you're using chrome, it's going to be in the directory. If you're using Internet Explorer or Firefox, wanna go ahead and click the executable file and get started installing camped. Asian contagion will ask you if you want to accept the license terms and you'll want to read them if you haven't read them and make sure that you understand the terms now, a couple of things of note that you are agreeing to one is that your license that your purchasing is non transferrable. So technically, if you wanted to sell your version of Camp Tasia, you are not allowed to sell it, and you're agreeing not to sell it. The other thing you're agreeing to is that Camp Tasia can be stalled on to of your computers to be used by one person to yourself. And you are technically not supposed to use them both at the same time. So if you want to run a production machine, you will have to make sure that you're running that production machine at a point in time at which you're not using the machine that you are currently using. So once you've read through the license, you want to go ahead and accept the terms and then click install and then camped. Ager will go through the installation process, and we're actually going to do this off camera. Once camped, Asia has completed the installation process. We will come back in the next video. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video 2. 0001 Accessing The Camtasia 9 Interface: Welcome back. You were now looking at the open interface for Cam Tasia, version nine. And when you open the program the first time provided that you have put in your registration key, you will see that you can either start with a new project or a new recording. Now, when you start with new project Camped, Asia is actually going to open up the editing interface, and typically you're going to get a screen that's going to ask you if you want to update Camp Tasia, you are going to want to say yes, and you'll be told that you're reading the most current version of camped Asian, especially when you first start. Now. Another way to start Camp Tasia is to start with a new recording, and if you open the interface and you click new recording, the recording interface is going to show up and you will be able to see where you are going to be able to record your screen or to record a power point. Now the other thing you can do to start camp Tasia is to open an existing project Now, in this particular case, we have just opened or downloaded the new Camp Tasia, so we don't have any new projects in Camped Asian nine, however we can do is we can open projects that we have created in other versions. In fact, if you go to any project that you have created in a previous version, you're going to notice that the icon has changed to the icon that's abused with Camped Asian nine. Now that doesn't mean that your files have been changed to can't Asian nine files and only means that the icon has changed. If you open this project in can't Asian nine, you can actually update the document to be used with the new system. So, for example, if we were to go and we were to take one of these files, which was created in a previous version of Camp Tasia, and we were to open it up camp Tasia is going to give you a message that this project was created in earlier version of Camp Danger Studio, and if you want to open it, you'll be opening it. But you'll be changing it so that it will only open then in Camp Tasia nine. You will not be able to use this file again and camped Asia eight. So this is something that you want to be aware of with projects that you have created in previous versions of Camped Asia. These air not backwards compatible. Once you have changed them over, you won't be able to change them back. So what we're going to do is we're going to say no gonna leave that document as it ISS. One final thing that will want to show before we go to the next video is that if you have entered into the editing screen, you can actually access the recording screen. Also, by going to the top left and clicking this record button. When you do that, then this button is going to show up and you'll recognize this as the recording screen. And those are all the basic ways that you'll be able to enter into Camp Tasia studio. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video 3. 0002 Basic Screen Recording Controls And Capture Menu: Hello and welcome on this video. We're going to get familiar with some of the basic screen recording controls now typically in camp. Tasia you can do is you can either open the entire program or you can open up just the recording screen. And that's what we're going to do right now. We're just gonna open up the recording feature. When you open up the recording feature, you're going to have a dialogue box that will allow you to customize your recording. They're going to be some basic things we want to take note of. One of the first things were gonna want to take note of is what Mike we're going to be using in order to use our recording. And we're gonna use this drop down arrow. You're gonna choose one of the microphones that you are going to be using. Want to use the best possible microphone with your Camp Tasia recording? We'll talk about that in the future video, but you can actually designate which microphone you're going to use in this dialog box. The other thing you can do is you can actually designate your webcam to be used. You have an external webcam you could connect it. If you have one, its internal, you can connect it so any webcam that you want to use with Camped Asian nine you can designate it inside of this recording screen. Now in the select area, get a chance to determine how you're going to record your screen. You can either record your screen in a custom size or you can corn the entire screen When you choose to use the custom size. What you're going to do is you're actually going to be able to record a certain area of the screen. You can see that here you can drag this image to the screen and just it, and that's not what you like. You can actually click the full screen and record the entire screen. In either case, you can determine what you want your viewer to see inside of the actual window. We're gonna actually close this now. Now there are some men used inside of the dialogue box. We're gonna take a look at some of those right now. In particular, we're gonna go to the capture area and you'll notice that you can actually record your screen or record your camera and you'll notice that you can actually use what's called a hot key, which is the F nine key. This is very important because you will not have to control your camera with your mouth. If you want to just start your recording, you want to do that with a button at the push of a button. You can do that with the F nine key. You can actually stop the recording with you have 10 key, and those are going to come in very handy when you're actually doing the recording. Once again, you can set the area to record, and that's pretty much the same that we did when we selected the area. And then we can actually lock to application. And that means that we can actually lack the recording to a specific application. For example, let's say that all we wanted to record was the Excel Application or Microsoft Excel. And if we have this spreadsheet open, what we would do then is just click lock to application and we would be locking to the Microsoft Excel application, and it would only record Microsoft Excel and not anything in the background on the next video. We'll review the effects menu, the tools, menu and Help menu. And with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 4. 0003 Recoding Toolbar Effects Menu: Welcome back. Now this video, we're going to take a look at the effects menu. We have already taken a look at the capture menu in a previous video, So if you open the effects menu, you're going to see three options. The first is going to be for adding a system stamp. The next is going to be for adding a caption. Now the other is going to be for adding mouse click sounds and then the options. Now, if you go to the options, that will actually control how you'll use Thies, too. So we're gonna take a look at the options menu first, because that'll tell us how we control these two portions of the menu. When you open up the options menu, you're going to see that there is a certain way that you can actually dictate how you want the time stamp toe appear, and you can actually have the elapsed time to appear. You can take out the time and date so you can customize this. You can also customize the date and time format. Now the other thing you can do is you can actually write a caption end that will appear in your video. So, for example, we can write in a phrase. Okay, so I've written in here, create video with Camped Asian nine and then I could determine how that captain is going to appear in the video. So, for example, I can determine if that caption is gonna appear at the bottom of the video. You can control where it's gonna peer. You can put at the top and put it in the middle. You can also control what the fund is going to be so we can change the fight here to something else that we like. We can change the text color as well as the background color, air, shadow, color. Once we have something that we like, we can then click the OK button and then we'll have a caption, and then we will have the options determined for our time stamp. Now we can also control what the sound effects are going to be. And what this been you will do is it will determine how the mouse button sound is going to be. And so, for example, you click this button, you'll notice that there is a click, and you can actually determine how this is going to sound inside of your video. So once you have the combination that you like, you are going to click. OK, but what this is going to do is now this is going to bring you back to the FX menu. And so now we can do is we can determine if we want a system stamp to occur in the video. And we can do that by clicking this menu. And we can also determine whether or not we want ah caption to occur. Click that also or we can decide we don't want either one of them and we get unchecked. Um okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in the next video when we'll talk about the tools menu of the recording toolbar. 5. 0004 Tools Menu Options: Welcome back. Now this video. We're going to take a look at the tools menu in the recording toolbar. And when we take a look at the Tools menu, you're going to notice that you have camped Asia and screen gas here now Cam Tasia. When you click this link, this will actually show you the editing tool box. So if I click, this will see the screen that we have seen before in the previous video. And so you'll notice that the editing field comes up when we go to tools and we go to screen Cast. What will happen is that your browser will open up screen cast dot com, which is a website that will interact with your camped Asian. We will be talking about that in a future video, and there you'll see, we have opened up to screen casts dot com. Now when we go to the Tools menu and we go to the option section, gonna notice four sections, general inputs, hot keys and programs. Now all of these things will be here by default. For the most part, you won't want to change them unless you have a reason to. We're going to focus on the hot keys in particular, that will be the one that you'll probably use the most. Now these hot keys are going to be keyboard combinations that you can use while you're recording. So, for example, if when you're recording, if you want to pause, recording and you hit F nine, the recording will pause if you want to stop the recording and you hit him. 10 the recording will stop. If you want to use the marker and you hit, control em, you can pull up the marker in the same thing with the screen draw. You can also select a region while you're recording. If you choose a certain keyboard combination right now, one is not selected. If you want to hide the tray icon, you can do that by selecting a certain keyboard combination. Now you can always use the default settings if you click restore defaults. The one thing that you will want to be aware of is that your recordings are going to be staged in a proprietary camp Tasia format. T R E C. If you want to save it to a more common format, you can do that with the A V I format, but for the most part, you will probably be using the T r e C. And that is what we will be using during the duration of this course. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 6. 0005 Recording Toolbar Help Menu Techsmith Account Access: Welcome back. Now, this video, we're going to talk about the recording toolbar, and we're going to talk about the help menu. Now what you're going to notice is that you can get specific help for the camp Tasia recorder with, according to a bar, what you're looking at here. You can access tutorials, technical support, or you can send me back to Sexsmith. Now, one thing that you'll want to note about Camp Tasia. Whether you are looking at the recording toolbar, where you're looking at the editing screen is that you can get specific help for everything that you have purchased from Camp Tasia Studio or from Tech Smith. And you'll notice that when you come to the editing screen, you'll see that you can actually signed into the software where you have camped ager studios. So what you want to do here is you're going to want to connect to the Tech Smith Server What you enter the email address that you have associated with your software. You're going to want to put in the password. Did you create it? Once you've done that, then you'll notice that your email address will be at the top. Your text myth count will be listed as part of your Camp Tasia software. Now, this will mean that when you access technical support, you will actually be able to get specialized help. So we're gonna go ahead, click technical support right here. Now, most cases you should already be signed into the Tech Smith website. If you're not, you want to go ahead and signed in at the top right here. And if you have any problem whatsoever, you can submit a ticket to text meant to help you to sort out your account. Now, what's important about accessing your tech Smith account and let's go ahead and enter or personal account? You'll notice here that anything that you've ever purchased from Tech Smith is actually listed along with the software key. In particular, you'll notice that here is our Camp Tasia nine license that we can see right here if we ever need the key for any reason. And this is important in case we have to move the software to a new PC, where if we have to use it someplace where our personal PC is not available, if you have a maintenance agreement, it will be present inside of your account online. And then your account will have all of your pertinent contact information. Okay, so what? That. Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 7. 0006 Recording Toolbar Recorded Inputs: Welcome back. Now this video, we're going to be talking about the recorded inputs. Now you're going to notice three separate pieces of the recorded inputs. The first you'll notice on the left hand side is your camera. And here is a drop down arrow here. Have you click that arrow? You're going to notice that you've got all of the webcam options that you can use on your particular PC. You are also going to notice that there is an option section that when you click this options button or link, it's going to take you back to the option screen. And we actually do need to do this for the camera. So let's do that right now. So there's anything in particular that you'll want to change about your device properties, and this is going to be specific to your device. War your formatting and again, this will be specific to your particular device. If you change that device, each one of these air going to be different, and you can actually change the settings for each individual device when you're going to use it with Camped Asia for a particular recording. Now, when you leave this setting and you actually click. OK, this is the setting that's going to be there for for the next recording, and so this will effectively be your default setting. If you ever want to go back to the default setting, you'll come back to this page for inputs and click restore defaults. You'll also notice that there is an audio button. Click the down arrow and you'll see all of your microphone in put options. If you have an internal microphone, if you have next Colonel microphone everything that you have plunged into your personal computer, you will see that option here now. The other thing is you're going to see is that you can choose to record the system audio. So, for example, if you have audio playing in the background on your PC, you could actually record it. You have something that is going to make some kind of audio sound. You could actually record that into your video. This is gonna be especially helpful if you are recording a webinar of some kind, and you want to make sure that you're getting it. You will want to record your system audio and just as you did with the camera. You have options here. It's going to take you back to the options menu. And again, what we can do is we can adjust the level of the microphone. We could have mawr audio going into the recording or less can actually change the audio and every audio setting we're going to be able to change through this audio button. If you ever want to go back to the default setting, you can click restore defaults. One other thing you're going to notice is that your capture frame rate is 30 frames per second as the default setting. You can actually change that and they get less. If for some reason you cannot process a video at 30 frames per second, go down to 15 10 or one. But it's advisable to leave this as the default setting. We're gonna go ahead and click OK, we can also control the audio input from the front of the recording to bar. We can adjust that audio and that is all that you'll need to know to get started with your recording input session. Now you'll notice here that this if we hover over this area that we have our webcam or what is the default for our webcam? And we can actually see what are Webcam is actually going to show people by hovering over this button and depending on which Web cam we have selected. So we want to know what our webcam is going to look like. Wherever we have that webcam, we can hover over this button and this will give us a preview in real time. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video. 8. 0007 Recording Toolbar Select Area Section: Welcome back in this video, we're gonna be talking about the select area portion of your recording toolbar. And if you go to the drop down menu, you're going to notice a couple of sections you're going to notice a section that says widescreen standard. Recent areas now widescreen and standard represent the aspect ratio and, in most cases, video that is done and posted to YouTube and other common forms of video sharing, they're gonna have a widescreen aspect of 16 by nine. That would mean that you're either going to shoot in the highest resolution at 10 80 or 7 24 for 80 but you want to make sure that you're matching the widescreen aspect of your screen. You can also shoot in a standard aspect, and again, this really depends on your screen. You can either shoot in a higher resolution or a lower resolution. You are now looking at Power Point and one of the things that you'll notice If you go to the design section of your power point and you go to the slide sides, you will notice that you can either choose the standard aspect or you can choose the widescreen aspect and again. This is how you will want to match your power point presentation with your actual video or your actual screen. And when you use the wrong aspect ratio, what can happen is that your video can appear stretched or out of proportion. So when you were watching a video that has been recorded in the 43 aspect ratio, but you're watching it on the wide screen it tonight to be stretched, or it can have the sides cut off or truncated. So again, you want to make sure that you're going to record in widescreen when possible. And if not, if you're going to use the aspect ratio of 43 where record is higher, resolution is possible. But in many cases, the most common format is going to be that you'll want to use the 10 80 or 7 20 aspect ratio within 16.9. Once again, one thing that Camp Tasia will allow us to do. It's a lot to a particular application, and in this particular case we can lack to the calculator. If we want to record just the calculator, we want to make sure that we're not locked to an application and we want to select the area . We can just push the custom button, push the custom button. And as we have discovered, as we have discussed in a previous video, we can move this screen around to determine where we're going to actually record. And if we're just going to work with the full screen, we can do that by clicking the full screen. But the one last thing that you'll notice about the recording toolbar is going to be particularly helpful. If you use two monitors or three monitors or multiple monitors, recording to bar can be moved to one of your other screens. So if you want to focus on recording this screen that you're looking, you can actually do that. And you can actually move this recording toolbar any place that you actually want by just clicking your mouse and moving it where you want it to be. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video 9. 0008 Brief Example Of What Happens: Welcome back. Now, this video, we're actually going to go through a brief recording process so you can get an understanding of what's actually going to happen when you hit the record button. Now we're going to record the screen that you're looking at in front of you. And in order to do that, we're just going to hit the Red Record button. If we have all of our settings in place and we hit the Red Record button, you'll notice that we get the opportunity to change our caption. So we'll call that Creed video with Cam Talaja nine test and then we'll click. OK, now we're going to see this throughout this course because we're using two forms of Camp Tasia studio In order to record the course, you will not see this air message. So just to get rid of the air message, I'm gonna click, OK, so that we can then see the countdown before we actually start recording once again. This you will not see in your recording process. We're gonna click. OK, then you're gonna see camped Asia studios start the countdown and right now we're now recording our screen. Now one thing you're going to notice right away is that the recording toolbar is no longer visible in front of us, and it's actually hidden down on toolbar. So it actually goes away and it appears at the bottom. If you want to see what's actually happening with our recording toolbar, weaken, do that. But it's going to bring it into the screen where recording is now. Let's do that right now. Now you'll notice that this is actually now going to be part of the recording. What's happening on the toolbar is that it's actually counting the elapsed time. If we have our cameras showing it showing, and it is actually showing us where we can actually pause the recording and stop it once again, we have configured hot keys in order to do this will actually do this. In the future video, we'll show you how the hot keys are actually going to work. So now we're going to go ahead, minimize this, said the sample recording that you see will actually show this screen now. The other thing that we're going to do is we're going to actually just go to youtube dot com, and we're just going to start a video. Now, when we start this video, there is actually going to be sound and that sound will actually be part of the video. So we're going to now just go back to the screen here and once again, this video is now still recording. Now, when we're complete with this recording, we can either hit the F 10 button as our hot key or we can just hit Stop. Now, once again, you'll notice that this toolbar is not appearing. If we bring it into our video, it will appear here. We don't want to do that in order to stop our actual video. And that's the case where we wanna have our hot keys. What do youse are? Hot keys so that we do not have to go and pick up this toolbar in order to stop the video course. What we can also do remember is we can put it on to another screen if we're using a second screen either to the left or to the right. So we're gonna do now is we're gonna click stop and then what's going to happen is camped. Asia is going to start making this into an edible video, so you'll notice that the editing screen will come up and camped. Asia will actually place the edit one to the toolbar. We will go through an editing process in another video. You'll also notice that the Webcam I was actually unable ends in the corner. We could actually remove that webcam from the recording by just going to delete it. Okay, so now, once we have completed this, you've actually gone to see now some of the basics as to how it's going to work. We will walk in depth through how you're going to use Camped Asian to record your screen or to record a power point or even to record your talking head videos. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 10. 0009 Actual Shoot Of A PowerPoint For Example Purposes: Welcome back. You are now looking at a sample video that we're going to be shooting and we're going to actually shoot the recording of a Power Point presentation. And what you're going to notice is that as we get ready to ours, we're previewing our recording toolbar. You'll notice that the audio is going in and we're using the microphone. We're using our external mike. What we're using right now is we're using one of the system Webcams. We're actually gonna change that. I'm going to turn that one, too. Our web camp, and that's gonna actually make the presenter viewable. Now, this is now blurred out at this point, but you'll notice that this is a camera and that the person is actually going to be visible when you hover over it. The other thing we're gonna do is we're not going to have a time stamp. So we're going to take this, Will you get rid of the annotations and then we're now ready to start with our video. Now, in a later video, we're actually going to show you a couple of ways that you can actually record power point presentations, but we're going to shoot this video so that we can then get familiar with the editing interface. So in order to get started, we have our recording toolbar set. We have our mike ready. We have our webcam ready. We're now ready to record. So we're gonna do is we're gonna go ahead. We're gonna hit the record button. Okay? So you'll notice that the camp Tasia is now not visible. And in order to record this presentation we're going to do is we're just going to go, and we're going to make sure that our slide is the right dimension. And then we're gonna start our slideshow. So we're gonna advance the slides, and we would actually talk through this. And we're going to just continue the power point. We complete the presentation, and now that we're complete, we convince Stop our video. And we can do that by getting the camera back here and then clicking the stop button. And so now our video is on these two tracks, and what we're going to do now is we're going to get to know some of the features on the actual editing screen. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video 11. 0010 Editing Screen The Timeline: Welcome back. Now, this video, we're going to look at some of the basics of the editing screen, and this is where you will have your projects and where you will do your editing. You're gonna notice right away. At the very bottom of the editing screen, you'll see that your video is down in two basic components. You'll see that one component is primarily audio and actually says audio there, and it will actually look like audio because you can see the peaks and valleys in the way that I actually spoke when we were recording the video. The other is the screen, and that's where you see this particular track and you'll see that this is going to be primarily the video. Now, when you do take a look at the elements on the timeline, one thing that you can do is you can right click this element, and you notice that there is a link here that says separate audio and video. When you click that link, what's gonna happen is that you will see that all of the audio is now separate. So, for example, you will see that the what appears on the screen is actually here. What is heard in the system in audio is now in one track, and what is now recorded is now on. One tracker would've spoken into the microphone, and all three of these components actually make up your video. You can take out any component that you want. So, for example, if you were to have some kind of audio noise come into your background or some kind of music that you didn't want there, you can actually take that out through the system Audio on your timeline, you can actually edit the entire piece, Of course, by keeping them together. So, for example, if we wanted to go backwards, we could go back and do the undo button, and they'll actually put those two pieces back together. Now, the timeline has a couple of elements. You're gonna notice that the timeline has markings at the very top. Those representing the seconds you'll notice that you have a scroll or cursor bar that will actually take you through each component of the video. So as I drag this cursor, you're going to notice a couple of things you're gonna notice that this indicator moves through to the end of the video. What also is gonna happen is that the video is going to advance and you'll notice that with backwards. So both of these features make it easy for us to go in and actually do the editing of a particular video. We can actually play the video. What we're gonna do right now is I'm going to hit the control home button. It's going to take me back to the beginning, and what I'm gonna do is hit the play button and you didn't notice, and you can actually hear some of the audio in the background. And what's happening here is that the editing screen is going to allow us to listen in real time to the video that we just created so that we can hear things in order to edit them. But you could do it visually by looking at the timeline. Now. Another element of the timeline is that if we want to take a look at the timeline as a whole, we can actually reduce the size without changing the nature of the timeline. We can do that by using this measuring rod and we click the minus. You'll notice that the timeline gets smaller one hour screen so that we can see the whole thing. If we need to stretch it so that we can see something a little more in depth, we can stretch it using the plus. We can actually delete the entire audio portion from the timeline by highlighting the audio and then clicking the delete button. Then the audio is gone. If we want to go backwards, we go back to the undo button and it's back there. We could do the same thing on the top of mind with the screen capture, and we can actually get to delete Button goes away. And then we could hit the undo button and it will come back. So the timeline basically gives us a glimpse off our entire video and what's happening and anything that you don't want to have in it can't. Asia allows you to separate into a track, and then it allows you to then delete the portion that you don't want there. So if we want to take out the system audio, we can, so their next video will take a look at another aspect of the editing screen. We have now looked at the timeline, and you've got a basic orientation as to what it does. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in the next video. 12. 0011 Editing Screen Timeline Tools: Welcome back on this video, we're going to do a brief overview of some of the timeline tools here, and these are going to be tools that you're gonna be using in the editing process. And if you recall from the last video, we actually took out the system audio. And one thing that we can do here is we can actually remove this track so that we can have the audio and video together. So let's take a look at each of these individual tools. Now, the first thing you're gonna notice is that there is an arrow and this is going to be an undue tool. And all this does is what the undue tool traditionally does in a Windows program. And that is that if you click it, it'll actually undo your last action. And this can be a good way of being able to go back and retrace your steps. If you're going to do editing now, you can actually redo the last action by clicking the redo arrow. And that's for any action that you take along the time line area. So if you add something and you want to take it out, you want to go back. You can use the undo and redo command. Now you also have here the cut command and the cut command can be useful. If you are going to take out anything in your video that you don't actually want their that's in a section. So, for example, we can actually pull the cursor to a certain point in the video, and then we can then expand the cursor and we can actually have an entire section of the video and we can click the Cut Command, and that entire section will then no longer be in the video. If we want to go back. All we have to do is click Undo button and we want to return the cursor to its original state weaken. Double click the cursor. If we want to return the cursor to the home area, all we do is click control home. Now, the other thing that camp Tasia has is it has a copy and paste tool and camped. Asia will actually go to the place where the cursor is, and it will pace whatever you have in your clipboard. So, for example, if we control end, pull our cursor all the way to the end. We can then click the paste command and you'll notice there that there is a portion that will actually be there. And this is something that we had in the toolbar, Of course. Then we can actually go back and undo it and then bring our cursor back home. Now. One last thing that's important to show here is thes split command. And this is gonna come in handy when you want to take certain actions on the timeline for a particular section of the video. So, for example, if we pull our cursor to a certain point, we highlight the places on the timeline, and then we click the split command camped. Asia will literally split the video and you'll notice that the split is going to be there and you'll see a little line there that indicates that that portion of the video can be split. We couldn't pull it to another portion, highlight the video again, and one of the ways that we re highlight the video is we can hit the control button and then click the mouse, then hit the control button, click the mouse and then we can then click the split button. What's again? This is gonna come in handy when we do transitions. It's also gonna come in handy if let's say what we wanted to do was we wanted to raise the audio on a specific portion of the video, but we didn't want a reason On another portion. We could actually do that by splitting up the timeline. So we're gonna do here is we're gonna go back. I'm gonna undo both of those actions. Now, one thing that will need to do when we're editing is in some cases will need to see the timeline differently. And we can actually reduce the size that we see on screen by using this measuring bar and we can actually increase it, decrease it and increase it. And this will help us when we need to do specific audio editing or even specific video editing in a certain place. And we need to get so precise that we need to stretch out the audio so we can have Kirsten exact place where things began. Now you'll also notice that there is a marker here and we will actually discuss that in a separate video, as we will also discuss quizzing. One final aspect of the timeline that you want to know about is if we were to click just the video portion. What we can do is we can click the properties and we can get the properties of that particular video. In this case, it's the audio. If we click the video abortion, we can actually get the properties of video. Now, when we do that, there are some aspects of the video that we can actually customize. Weaken Do that from the property screen. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 13. 0012 Editing Screen Using Markers: in this video, we're going to be discussing the marker function and you'll notice down near the time line . If we go to this drop down arrow, you'll see that there is a marker command there. Now we can either make the marker bar go away when we could make a comeback and you'll see it visible there. And the marker function allows us to mark places on the timeline, either where we want to create a table of contents for individual video or where we want to come back. And we want to do something to the timeline. So let's say that there is a special element that you want to edit any particular point in the video. Well, what you could do is you can market where the cursor is, and all you need to do is to go up here and then left click. That will mark the area you can then name that and you'll go up to the right hand side and you'll put in here whatever it is, and you'll see the name there. You can come here. You could do the very same thing again. Click inside of the market area and being able to mark the timeline can be extremely handy when you are actually doing the editing so that you don't have to go back and redo entire portions. Once you know something that you're gonna have to actually do something on the timeline, you just want to go in the market just like we're doing here. You can also do this by hitting control him, and that will actually create a marker wherever your cursor is. Now let's say that you actually want to mark things while you are recording. That would make it especially handy. So let's take a look at the recording toolbar. One thing you're gonna want to make sure of is that you have the it affects tube are available. You can do that by going to your recording tool bars. Make sure that the effects are ticked, then click OK, and then you're gonna start the recording button. And then while you're doing your recording, what you can do is you can click marker when something happens, or let's say that you're not saying what you want to say in the video, you can click marker and continue to click it, and these markets will appear on your timeline when you actually get ready to edit the video and this will actually help get to know where to actually go to actually do the edits that you need to do a course. You can also use an alternative that will be talking about in a future video editing specifically. But you can use the marker command to your advantage as you go. It's a great way of being able to mark things on the timeline so that you will actually know what's happening now. We want to delete a marker. We can actually go back to the marker and click delete. And then our markets are no longer there. If we want to put them back, we can use the undue command. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video. 14. 0013 Editing Screen Using Marketers For Table Of Contents: Welcome back. Now in this video, we want to discuss very briefly another use for the markers that we talked about in the previous video. And what you can do is you can actually create a table of contents for each individual video. You can do that by marking your timeline and, for example, we're just going to move the cursor all the way back to the home area. And let's say that you got to the first portion of your video and you wanted to mark this as, ah point that you wanted people to know that it was a certain information point in your video where you could actually mark that with a marker and obviously, what you want to do it. Each marker point is you want to write in what the Table of contents point is going to be. It's going to be Chapter one. You want to write that in. You can write it in as you edit Point number two can be Chapter two. That's important to note that only certain kinds of videos are you going to be able to use your table contents and let's take a look right now in order to get to the final preparation of our video. We go to the share we go to custom production, and then we click custom production. What you're going to notice here is that Camp Tasia will give us the option of using a smart player. This is an option that will be able to actually use our table of contents if we choose any of the other formats. We're not actually going to be able to produce our video with a table of contents. And you'll see that as you progress through the final portion and you'll notice here that this video can have a table of contents and have a searchable table of contents, we'll talk more about the production options in future videos. It's important to note that for this video, we want to make mention that you can actually use markers in your timeline to denote when you want to have a portion of that video noted in the table of contents, and you can mark it and keep it marked as you produce the final video. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video 15. 0014 Editing Screen Adding Quizzes Surveys To The Timeline: Welcome back. Now in this video, we're going to add quizzes to the timeline. We're gonna first start by removing the chapter. Markings were going to do that by going to the modify command, going to markers and then removing all markers and then we're going to do is we're going to turn this drop down menu to quizzes and in the same way that we added markers to the timeline weaken, Go to pull the cursor where we want to add a quiz, and then we can then click this green button, which is going to be And you want to do it online with where the quiz iss You're gonna do that right here. So where the channel is, where you see the quiz? That's where you're gonna click in here to add your quiz. We're going to do with each quizzes. We're going to determine the properties of them, and you can do that in this area. You go to the properties, and if you want to do a multiple choice, fill in the blank or true falls. In many cases you will probably be doing is you will be doing a survey, and if you want to put survey questions at certain points in the video. You can actually do that, and the video will not advance until your client or customer actually finishes the question . Now, when you put these videos together, you will not be able to host them on YouTube. You will need to host them, either on your website or on screen cast dot com. So we have just taken a brief look at how you put quizzes on the timeline. We will go into detail as to what these quizzes mean and how you turn them into surveys so that you can reach your target customer. Okay, so what? That thanks and I will see you in another video. 16. 0015 Editing Screen Media Bin And Saving Your Projects: Welcome back in this video. We're going to take a little more time with the elements on the side panel and we're going to go a little more in depth into what they do as each one of these things will affect. What you are doing inside of your video when the first things we're gonna do is we're just going to clean up our desktop a little bit. We're gonna move, remove one of these tracks just so that will have the two tracks that were working on. Now, when you click the media panel, but you're gonna notice is that you'll see the media panel go away. If we click it again, the media panel will appear. And what's in the media panel is any recording or any media that were actually working with . So, for example, at the very beginning of this course, we recorded the video and it automatically populated into the media been and that always happens when you do a recording and camp Tasia. If we wanted to add to this, we would import a media file into the bin. So, for example, let's import a media file and we can do that by going to this plus, or we can go to the file and we'll go to import an important particular media. So in this particular case was just imports and media that we might have elsewhere. So we'll click the plus button and then we'll choose whether or not we import the media or import something from Google Drive. So you would choose something from our hard drive look like open. And then that media will appear in our bin. If we want to pick something that we have recorded previously, you go to the file area we can go to import, and we can actually import other recordings that we have done with the media. Been This does not actually do anything to the actual recording until you put it on the timeline. So when you decide on where you want it to appear in your video, all you would do is you would right click this and then add to the timeline at the play head. And what you're going to notice is that it will appear one a third track, and what that means is that you're going to hear this audio play right on top of all of the other audio. If you wanted to not hear some of the other audio to recall, all you have to do is highlight that track and delete it will bring it back. And if we were to delete this track, it would no longer be on the timeline. But it would still be in our media. Been media band allows us to work with recordings and allows us to work with everything that we're going to be using in our editing process. Now, the last thing that will want to do is something that we haven't done previously. In this course. We're going to actually save our project, file this preserve the work that we have done so far and what to save often because when you are actually doing editing you don't want to do, is have to go back and redo editing over and over again. So the ways in which you control that is you would actually save your project file. So in order to do that, you would go to the file area and you would click save as the first time. So we're going to save this as a name that will remember now you want to take note of how this project file is named, it's actually gonna be named something different than if you have used previous versions of Camp Tasia. It will not look like something that you have used before. And this is proof that if you want to use previous versions of Camp Tasia, the tour is not compatible. Unless unless you convert the file forward to version nine, you can't converse. You actually cannot convert this version back to a previous version. In this particular case, we're gonna call this course file one, and we're going to click Save. Were you completed this camp Tasia will actually let you know that your project has been saved on your hard drive. Now they will give you the option of not showing you this message again. It suggested that you allow this message to be seen because this will assure you that your project has actually been saved. If you don't get this message, you'll know that the saving process has not been completed and that you might want to try it again. In this particular case we've seen are camped age, a project file has been saved, and so What we're gonna do is we're gonna click. OK? Okay. So with that Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 17. 0016 Editing Screen Media Bin Library Elements: Welcome back in this video, we're going to go to the other side of the media, been And what we're gonna find is we're going to find Media Library. Me library has a number of effects. Camp Tasia, when you purchase the program, gives you in order to enhance your video. And so each one of the can be dropped right into your presentation, and we'll show you how to do that right now. So, for example, you want to go through each one of these, but they all work basically in the same way. So let's start with animated backgrounds. And so you'll see here that you have ones called voting boxes and what you can do is you can right click, and you can add it to the timeline at the play it. Now what you'll notice here is that it goes on to 1/3 track. When you add on a new animation, a good practice would be to go to the track and renamed the track. In other words, we would go and rename this track too. Boxes not in orderto oft er the box. All we need to do is to drag the timeline in and then to place on the box whatever we want to place in it in order to preview it before we go to the timeline, all we need to do is to right click it and then click preview and you'll be able to see what this animation is gonna look like. When you decide that you do not want to have this animation, all you need to do is highlight it, delete it, bring your cursor back to the home space, and then you can add another one. We'll preview it. That's not the one that we want. We will take a look at another one, preview it and then we'll close this one and then once again, we can add it to the timeline. We can rename our shrank. So in each case, you what to take a look at the different elements. You want to preview them when and then add them to the timeline. Now, one thing you'll notice is that there are properties to each one of these elements, and you can do different and you can alter them in different ways. We're since you can turn them to give them a different look or revert them back, we can make them more opaque, more invisible. So you want to take a look at the properties to change the image to be what you want. If you want to do something to the image, perhaps you'd like to write on the image. Well, all you need to do is to add on and annotation, and what you'll notice when you add on the annotation is that it's going to be on a different track all the time. Why it's going to be the same length of the apartment, but we can actually lengthen it, or we can shorten it. So you have a lot of flexibility with the library, and you can do a lot of different things, anything that you want to do in terms of being able to denote something that you see that you want to illustrate to your audience. So we're going to delete this text and the apartment, and we're gonna delete these tracks and we're gonna go back to the media, been the one useful factor, and you'll want to go through each and every one of these media library pieces, and you will want to take a look to see how they could be used in your videos. Now all of the other graphics are visual in nature except for the music tracks. In this particular case, these air music tracks that a royalty free, and you can use them in your videos. You can preview them, and you can add them to the timeline. You can alter their timeline. For example, you can take this particular audio. You can lower the volume. Do that in the properties, and you'll notice that when you lower the volume, you can actually see that volume visually. So if you want to play background music, you can use some of the clips in your media library. So in this particular case, remember that the process is going to be that you'll want to preview it first. Then you'll want to put it onto the timeline. Then you'll want to drag your cursor into the timeline, and then you want to alter it. Lastly, as we leave the media library, you'll notice the camp Tasia has given you something called Lower Thirds, and this is a way of identifying yourself are identifying something that you see on the screen. In some cases, When you have a talking head video, it is a video of a person talking. You can actually add in and identify her. For example. Let's add in the lower third. And what we're going to do is we're going to drag into our timeline. And then what we're going to do is we're going to edit this and we can double click. Timeline could change the wording. Hey, we can change the color once again. Remember, we're going to look at the properties, gonna change it, and we can reposition any of the library options on the screen that where we want them. We can also determine how long they're going to appear. And we can do that by lengthening the time that they appear. We're shortening the time. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video 18. 0017 Editing Screen Annotations Element: Welcome back. Now, this video, we're going to take a look at the annotations element. And if you go to the left side menu, you click on annotations. You're going to notice they're going to be five different panels here, and the annotations actually give you another element that you can place onto your video and different points in the timeline. So, for example, you notice that in annotations you'll find the text element. So if you want to write something on your video toe, appear you can do that by dragging this element onto the track. And when you do that and you actually move your cursor, you'll notice that the element will show up inside of the presentation. So in this particular case, we can move this element any place that we want. And, as always, we can actually change the element with nature of the element in the properties area. So we're gonna do is we're going to change the color of the writing, and we can change that in this particular case to black, and you knows that that will change. In that case, what we can also do is we can also move this element to a point in time in the video that we want to show up. So, for example, let's say that we didn't want this to appear until midway through the video. We could do that. And so this annotation would not appear until that time. And so their several ways for us to alter our animation and all of them will take place inside of the properties area now could actually do more than one annotation. So, for example, if we wanted to do an arrow, all we would need to do is to drag that arrow either into the box or weaken. Drag it onto the timeline. Either one we do that we're doing here is we're making this arrow a part of the video. And of course, this arrow has an element that we can change. We can make the timing of this element independent of the other one that would place on the timeline, and you'll notice here that this is going to be on the video longer than the other element that will place there. So annotations give us lots of flexibility when we want to add things to our video to give us more ways of highlighting things that we want our viewer to see. In the second panel, we have arrows and arrows work in the very same way Weaken dragged those arrows onto the timeline. We can rotate those arrows. We can change the nature of those arrows in the properties area. We could even change the thickness of the line. So once again, all of the annotations give us things that we can actually place in the video wherever we want. Now one of the things you're going to notice about this particular annotation is that Camp Tasia put it on top of the other ones. So if we were to raise our cursor on the right side, we can see that this is now on track five. As we said, it's a good practice to we name the tracks so that you know what's there. We have even more options within each one of the annotations in this style area, for example, we can make something bold or we can make an element. What's called urban again would be dragging a new element. There we're abstract and the third panel we have shapes and in some cases, what we might do is, we might pull the cursor forward, and we might add this shape into the presentation at a different point. So if that's the case, we're just going to drag this element right into our video weaken size this element up or size it back down. We have 1/4 panel, and the fourth panel is very important, and there are some elements there that we want to take a few minutes to actually talk about for a minute. Now you're going to notice that first, there is a blur element, and the blur element is going to help us. If we have personal information that we need to display on our screen, we can actually blur that information out on one of the ways that we do. That is, we can then dragged this element onto the screen, and you'll notice then that the element becomes blurrier. What's on the screen is going to be blurry to the audience. We could make that appear as long as we needed to you notice. I'm pulling out the timeline when you were doing screen sharing video and you do not want to show personal information. You will be using the Blur key. Very often there are some similar keys that we can actually use. We can actually spotlight something. So in this particular case can actually bring our cursor and spotlight an element. We're gonna take the spotlight out. We can highlight something. Once again. Remember, we can alter all of these elements. When we click inside of the element and we go to the properties area, we can pixelated something which works very similar to the blur but has a different effect . Once again, we can change this in the properties area, and we can lengthen or shorten it on the timeline. Also, in the annotations area, we have the sketch motion call outs Now, also in the annotations area, we have this sketch motion call outs as sketch motion call outs are very handy to use when you want to highlight something and you want to draw your users attention. And you can do that by dragging in a sketch annotation. In this particular case, we're gonna drag in a loop circle, gonna have it cover all of this information. So what we want to do is want to take a look to see how that the animation is gonna look. We wanted to cover the entire section and with a sketch animation in Camp Tasia. This is actually going to do motion drawing, and we're going to be able to see this right on our screen. And once again, we can control this element in our properties area. I want to change the color if we want to change the thickness. And if we were even want to change the amount of time that's going to take to draw the element, we can actually flip the element vertically or horizontally. So again, always remember that when you dragon element in, you can always make changes to how it's actually going to appear by working with the properties, because this is a special element. One thing we can do is we can see how it's actually going to appear in the timeline in our actual video. So let's do that. All we have to do is pull it to that point in the timeline. They were going to press play and you'll notice that Camp Tasia actually draws on our video , so sketch motion is very handy, and once again you can have to appear as long as you like, but you'll still want to control the time that it takes to draw the element in this area. Now, one additional element in the annotations area are going to be what are called keystroke call outs. Keystroke call outs are very effective in sharing with your viewer what they need to do in order to replicate your effects that you're doing on your screen. So, for example, let's say that you were clicking Control s for save, and you're doing it at this point in the video. So what would you do? Well, we shorten it to just talk about the period of time where the person is gonna be talking about control s. And then we would change this. So you'll see now in the properties area, just as we've seen everything else gonna make this control Plus s, we're gonna head to the properties area. We're gonna make this control s to indicate safe place, are keys in there. And what we're going to do is we're going to do the motion one hour keyboards. We're not gonna type in control s. We're going to hit the control than s button and that will appear in this block, and then we'll drag it to the place that we want to be. Now let's say that there's a different point in the timeline that you wanted to indicate that your viewer needed to pay something. So we dragged the keystone call out either into the timeline or into the video itself. We would time it, and then we would go to the keys and we would click control the indicating paste. And so now what we have is another way of being able to get our viewer to understand exactly what they need to do to get the results that we are teaching them. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 19. 0018 Editing Screen Transitions: Welcome back. Now this video, we're going to work with the transitions element and on the left hand side menu you'll want to go to the transitions. And transitions are a way for you to be able to go from one part of your video toe. Another. Give your viewers something to focus on, other than a hard at it. So, for example, if we were to go to a place where there was a break and we wanted to start talking about something different. What we need to do in order to implement a transition is that we would need to go to the timeline, highlight all of the elements, and then we need to hit the split command. Once we have the split command, we can then use the transitions and order to give our viewer something else to focus on. So, for example, we can choose any of the transitions that you'll see here on the left hand side panel. They're also divided into certain sections, so if you want to have a fade, you want to have movement. If you want to have objects, if you want to have a stylized one, or even if you want to have one that wipes and so we're gonna do is we're going to actually drag this transition down to the timeline, and what you're going to notice is that it is going to land the actual video track. Now let's see what the transition is actually going to look like, well, back the cursor up, and then we'll hit the play button. And if we look in this area, if we look here, the editor will show us what our transition is going to do when it. So as you can see, what transitions do is they give us a break so that if you have to ideas and you're trying to share them differently, it's a great way of being able to display to your viewer that something has changed. Now you can do the same thing with a different kind of object. So all we would need to do if we wanted to delete this transition, right, click it and then click delete. And then we would drag this transition down to the timeline. So once again, we're back this cursor before the transition, and you can see how it's actually going to look with your content. So once again, you were going to go to the timeline where you want to transition to be situated. And let's say that we wanted to be situated someplace between these two slides. The one thing that you can do to get your transition exactly right is you can actually stretch the timeline. So, for example, what we want to do is we want to get it is close to being between these two slides as we can and can do that by stretching out the time line hitting the plus button and we're gonna do is we're going to go to the exact point where the slide changes. Once we found the space on the timeline that we want to actually have our transition appear , we're going to find the place, and then we're going to hit the split command. It's going to split. The video track we're to do is we're gonna drag this transition right down on top of that video track. We're actually gonna then take a look to see how it's actually gonna look. Wow. And what you'll notice is that the process that we just went through actually changes when the slide changes We accomplish that by stretching out the time line and getting the cursor exactly at the point where the slide transitions and this is a great way of being able to give your viewer an element of variety while they're watching a tutorial. But you can do this with any element that you're actually going to be using. Even if you're using a talking head video, you can do the very same thing. Now, of course, like every other element, if we place our cursor on top of the transition, it actually has its own properties, and we can actually change it in the Properties area. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 20. 0019 Editing Screen Behaviors Tab: Welcome back on this video. We're going to be discussing the behaviors tab and you'll notice that Camp Tasia will give you the opportunity to cause your entire video to behave in certain ways. And it's an interesting feature to use, but where it's especially used is when you are having an opening sequence. But for the sake of example, let's take a look to see what these behaviors actually do. Would we pick a place on the timeline and let's move the cursor all the way back to the beginning? What we can do is weaken drag, the behavior that we're looking for and we contest all of these. We could test all of them by hovering over them to see what they're gonna look like. Now we're gonna do is we're going to drag one of the behaviours onto the canvas. Now what we're going to do is we're just going to click the play button so we can see what our screen is actually going to do and what the viewer is going to see. As you noticed. This element has properties so we can control what happens at the beginning. We can control what happens during the middle and control. It happens during the end, and we can set different aspects of the behavior of our screen. So once again, we're gonna go back here to the beginning. And instead of the drifting timeline were to use the fade behavior and drag that into our box, You're gonna take a look at what this is going to actually look like. So you'll see the fade in and fade out. So let's take a look again. What again? We can control this using the properties and take a look to see what's actually going to happen. Sanitation. And so, as you can tell, what the behaviors do is they give us a different element for us to be able to give our viewer some variety and seeing our video. Now, the key to understanding how to use thes behaviors is to monitor how they look on. The timeline is to use the properties button. You don't want one there, you can just x out of it and then to drag them from the behavior section into the canvas. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video 21. 0020 Editing Screen Animations: Welcome back on this video. We're going to be talking about the animations element, and you'll notice that the animations element in the left side panel has two sides zoom and pan and animations. So first, let's talk about zoom and pan. Now what you'll notice is that they're going to be times when you might actually want to zoom in and have your viewer see something that might be too small for them to see just by watching the video. And you can actually do that by doing zoom and pan, and I'll show you what that means. Now when you do zoom and pan, what you want to do is you want to take this square by the handles and you'll want to move it to the place that you actually want to zoom in on what you'll notice. This happening in the timeline is that there will be an arrow, and that is your zoom and pan arrow, and it's an indication that you have placed in element on the timeline where you were zooming and panning, and what's happening on the screen is that we have zoomed in on this one area. As you can see, now, just like any other element, we can actually control that element clicking on the element and by using the properties area. So what could happen is that your video would progress, and then you'd want to go back to the regular size. What they have your video show the entire screen. You can do that by going to skill to fit just by clicking this button, and you'll notice then that your screen will show the full size. And this could be a handy tool when you have to record a part of the video that will be too small for your viewers to see. What you'll notice is that we have two arrows on the timeline. Both arrows indicate zoom and pan. One indicates that we zoomed in. The other one indicates that we zoomed out. Now you can also use the animations feature, and there are 10 to speak of and will briefly go through each one of them have to do that. We're going to advance the video slightly by moving the cursor, and what we're going to do is we're going to actually pull each one on to the timeline so you can see what actually happens. So in the custom area we can pull our zoom and pan here. And what happens is we can actually customize what actually happens. And we control that inside of the properties area. If we don't want the animation, we click it and click delete. We can actually use the restore and you'll notice what happens is it actually restores the screen to where it waas. So in other words, it looks backwards. It skips the last animation and it brings the screen back to where it waas for this animation. You can see that here once again, we can control this in the properties area. Now we're gonna click delete. We can bring in an animation that has no a pacenti right or no see through nature where we couldn't bring in one that has full of paces, we could bring in the element that says Tilt to the left. And as you'll notice our screen tilts to the left, we can control how much in the properties area and we can We can do the same thing tilting to the right. We can actually have a an animation that will scale up, and then one that will scale down. The last animation that will be talking about can be done on any point in the timeline or any section of the timelines. We could choose a section of the timeline and we could place here. And what we want to do is we want to use the smart focus. And so we're going to do is going to drag the smart focus into one area. What you're going to notice is that can't Asian Studio will tell us that toe apply smart focus animations. The ending dimensions need to be smaller, then the media that we're using. So right now we're using full screen using full size, those logs and dimensions air smaller. We will be able to use zoom in tan, which it will be, and so we can choose our settings to make sure in a smaller we can use fit too visible where we can customize it. You can customize it for any device. In this particular case, what we're gonna do is we're gonna customize it for 4 80 p and click apply Since you'll be using this feature often will be taking closer. Look at the smart focus element all by itself in a future video. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video 22. 0021 Recording A Brief Video To Show More Effects: Okay, So what we're gonna do is record a sample video so that we can put it on the timeline so that we can show you the rest of the features that are part of the elements on the left side panel. So we're gonna click this record button, and then we're going to record some clicks, some other things on the snag page, and then we're going to bundle up this video, and then we're going to allow it to be placed on the timeline. Okay, So what we're gonna do is we're gonna click the file and we're going to click import profiles. And then we're going to dismiss that one and where to click to capture menu. I want to click the View menu and then the tools menu and the help menu. And then we're going to take a look at these three elements on the screen, and then we're going to take a look at one of these elements, and this will give us enough to take a look at what we're doing. Okay, so we're looking at this element and we're going to click. Yes. And now we have enough to go to the timeline. So we're just going to click this stop button. So we click the stop button. You notice our video populates this area, you'll see the sound coming in. And so now we have a video toe work with that, we can then show you cursor effects, voice, generations, audio effects, visual effects and interactivity. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video. 23. 0001 Use Multiple Screens: Welcome. Now, in this video, we're gonna be talking about the optimal computer set up, and that is to use multiple screens if you're not doing that already, one of the first things at best practice when you are using Camped Asian nine, is that you make the use of multiple screens, and that can be the screen on your laptop as well as a monitor. It can be the screen or your desktop as well as another monitor. It can be two monitors. The fact of the matter is that you need to make use of multiple screens if you're going to be most effective. And screen casting and making those monitors available and making them work with your operating system is very easy to do in Windows and Mac. In fact, Windows and Mac operating systems make accommodations for people who use multiple screens. They anticipate that you're going to make use off multiple screens. An additional monitor is not expensive, so probably you talking in the area. $50 used, maybe $100 new. Typically, an additional monitor could be picked up for his little is $50 used and $100 new. You're gonna want to purchase as high of a resolution that you can when you get the monitor and we're going to say that at minimum you should be looking for 1920 by 10 80 pixels. That is probably the standard at which you're going to be producing videos and that you want to edit your videos. And if you have a laptop, it has that resolution. Then you want to be able to use your screen effectively using in the same resolution. Here's what multiple screens dio they allow you to toggle back and forth between notes and screens and other things that will help you to create your video. For example, you're looking at the recording tool by here, and we have been able to move this back and forth due to the multiple screen environment. And what this does is this allows you to focus on what you're describing, and it also gives you some alternatives, especially when you're using, especially when you're using the screen writing tools and everything else that you're gonna be using as you start to screen cast. In fact, it's going to make it very easy for you to be able to do Power Point videos and one of the things that you have probably noticed that maybe you noticed in one of the previous videos and the basic course is that you can switch back and forth between the presenter view as well as the display view, and this really does help you to be able to monitor where you are. So, for example, you are looking at a slide presentation, and when you have a multiple screen environment, you can actually look over to the right and know what's coming next. You can actually start to plan in your mind as to what you're actually going to be saying about what you're going to be describing to your audience. And this is especially helpful when your screen casting, but we're gonna go ahead, switch back to the presenter view. Of course, if you can make use of three monitors, you can be even more efficient because you can spread some of the load across three monitors and be effect in some case, if you have a document you're referring to during your Power Point presentation, as well as having that Power Point staging area as well as having your presentation again, taking advantage of multiple screens is a very effective way of being able to use Camp Tasia, and this does not have to be expensive or fancy. You can have something. It's simple as an old monitor as well as an old laptop. The most important thing when you are projecting him when you are presenting is that you have these multiple screens and as long as they can be side by side and be next to each other, this will allow you toggle back and forth and to be able to refer to things and to be able to be effective when you're communicating. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 24. 0002 Bring Your PC To Eye Level: Welcome back. Now, in this best practices video, we're gonna be talking about making sure that your recording computer is going to be an eye level. You're going to appear in your tutorial videos. One camera. That means whether you're going to appear fully as the subject of the video or whether or not you're gonna appear in the corners we've talked about. You need to make sure that your computer is going to be a high level. And mainly you want to make sure that your camera is going to be a high level. Because whenever you are actually going to be talking to your audience, you should be looking directly into the eye of the camera because that will then give the effect that you were actually talking to them. One of the things that is difficulty about screen casting is that you can, often without necessarily trying to do so, look in a different direction. You can look off to the side, and it is distracting to the people who were actually watching your video. So two things that you need to do. Number one. Make sure that you're going to bring your computer the eye level and then wherever your webcam is, you want to make sure that you were able to look directly into it so that you can be direct and connecting with. The people were going to watch it. Now this whole set up is important for reading and navigational purposes to. So if you are actually scrolling through your points when you're talking on Power Point, it's more effective if you can see them and that their eye level if you're not looking up at them, I'm not looking too far down that them having them directly in front of them is very important. In order to get your computer to high level, you can purchase items from office supply stores, or you can use books to stack until you get to the right height. Now what you discover the right height that needs to be a short term solution. So all you're doing with the books and you're determining how high it is when a measure that you in there exactly how tall that is, because that's what you're gonna go and take to the office supply store. In the long term, the kind of solution that you want is going to be something that allows your laptop to be high II level, but it needs to breathe so it won't overheat. So you don't want to have your laptop. So it's sitting on top of something that will not allow that the fan to cool it off. You want to make sure that it's open, and that is really running over something that is porous or already has holds it again, just as we discussed in last video. This does not have to be, and it shouldn't be an expensive solution. The one you're about to see cost about $3 that's about as much as you have to pay. Notice how the area right behind the screen it's breathe, is porous and has holes in it so the laptop can actually breathe, and it also raises the level of the laptop so that you can see I level so you can see the webcam and necessaries you can read properly. You can actually have a real conversation with the people that are gonna be watching your video, and you can see a little better here again. Noticed fact that this allows the laptop to breathe. There isn't a problem with overheating. And one of the things that happens over time is if you have a laptop in, you don't allow it to breathe. You will cost problems with that laptop overheating, shortening the life of your laptop, having to buy other pieces when, really, this is a really simple, very inexpensive solution that will help you to do that while at the same time really bringing your PC to the level where you can actually use it. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 25. 0003 The Inexpensive Noise Cancelling Mic Setup: Hello. Welcome. Now this best practice video, we're gonna be talking about your microphone in terms of the optimal computer set up. If there's anyone discussion that you probably see amongst entrepreneurs and anyone who is doing anything on mine when it comes to multimedia, it's about finding the best Mike were your recordings and sound quality is important, but there are going to be some other considerations with you using Camped Asian nine. If you can have a place where you have absolute silence, any car toyed Mike. Such is the 80 2020 the Blue Yeti or any of those mikes that air USB Mike's. They're going to produce great sound. However, however, depending on where you work from, it will probably be rare that you are going to have absolute silence. And sometimes Mike's like the 80 2020 or the Blue Jetty, they will pick up background noise. And for that reason that we're going to suggest an alternative. And that alternative is a headset. In fact, a Plantronics headset, which we will show you here in a minute. Now you're gonna want to get the one that costs about $30 instead of the least expensive. One of a Plantronics headset plugs into your computer's stereo jacks. One does not plug into the USB port. It basically means you were not going to using a USB mic. And this is important because, ah, USB mic will always take up processing resources while you record. And when you actually choose to appear in your video, whether or not you're the subject, that video or you're appearing off to the side. This one fact is going to be very important because screen casting software like Camp Tasia is going to be computer resource intensive. And that means then that your video is going to have laden. See mismatches where your that he was doing one thing and your voice is doing another wing . And that happens often when you use USB microphones. Now a stereo. Mike avoids this problem. Yes, you were going to sacrifice some quality, but not really that much. And it's always going to be good enough for a solid tutorial on the other thing that headsets like this do extremely well. There's noise cancellation and will not require you to have absolute silence where you're recording from regards of what kind of headset you purchase, make sure you get something that will help you to black out noise on your mic, and that will also reduce pops in your recording. Now one of the things you're gonna want to do when you are screen casting, particularly camped Asian nine, is that you want a position your mic away from your mouth directly. This is going to keep you from producing pops, and let's take a look at the mike again. We're not talking about a huge expense, and these mikes are readily available. Very inexpensive, and what you'll notice again is that these mikes plug into this stereo. Jack. Do not plug into the USB jack. The laden sea issue is a big one, and you'll often see it when people are producing video and they have a tutorial video where they appear in that video. Unless you have a massive amount of computing power, you want to make sure that you are making the most of your resource is and and you want to get started using can't Asian nine. Before you go out, get a powerful computer. You can do that if you use the stereo jacks in your microphone and again. Here are very inexpensive alternatives. To be ableto add to your mic to slide right over to the mike head. And again, this will help you to avoid Pops will help me to block out some of the noise while you're talking. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 26. 0004 The Production Machine: Welcome back. Now, in this video, we'll be talking about the best practice off using a production machine. One of the ways that you're gonna save time is not having to produce or render is the other term your videos on the same computer that you work on and can't. Agius studio will allow you to use to installations for one license. As long as you are the person using both of those installations, it's legal within the terms in which you purchase can't Asian studio. This means that you can place your second installation on another computer that you use, and we're calling this this video a production machine. Now you will use this computer to do the final processing or the rendering or production of your videos, and the best way to do this would be to use an external drive and to plug it into your production PC. Now, if you use any kind of special assets in your library, you're going to need to make sure that you export those assets out of your library on one machine and support them into the library on your production machine. This major could either hand over the videos that you create to someone else to render or you didn't work on endured videos, render them all at once on your production machine and walk away. Previously in the course, we talked about how you can batch render multiple videos. In other words, you can sit all your videos up in once and then use the batch requirement. And remember that batch can be found. Remember, the batch can be found here in the file area. And then if you're a call, there is a batch production link, and this gives you the opportunity then to go and get those multiple files for you to run all at once. So if you're creating course or a SYRIZA videos, you can work on the creation, and then you can set all of your rendering jobs on your production machine. With this, Ruby means, is that you can keep working so you don't have to worry about all the resource is on your computer being taken up. To render your videos, you can continue to work on your main PC and then run your jobs. One. Your production machine. You were also then free to run your jobs and your production machine and then do whatever helps that you like to do. Now there is an important discussion toe have about a production machine and it is that technically, in the terms of service, camped Ages says that you cannot run Camped Asia con currently, even if you are the user of both installation, those are the terms inversion nine Nana Recent discussion with Cam Tasia won their social media. It was asked of them whether or not this production machine clause is still valid. And basically, if you look in this area, we verified that you can still use the function of doing production machine and that this is an appropriate use. According to Camp Tasia, if you read this So even though the terms technically would leave out the production machine at a version night verifying with Camped Asia, as of right now the recording of this video that this is something that they are perfectly fine with. But once again, if you are unsure, make sure that you do your own follow up that you follow up with camped Asian. You don't want to break the terms of service and then have your license to Camp. Tasia revoked make sure that you verify if this is something that you want to do it. It's certainly something that you should want to do because it will make you much more efficient and allow you the freedom of being able toe work on your PC while your videos render on your production machine. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video. 27. 0005 Setting Up Your Home Network For Production: Welcome back. Now, in this video, we're going to be discussing setting up your home network for production using campaign Jinnai. Now, we talked about using an external drive last time and that so that you can transfer files so you would produce the files on one machine, save them onto your external hard drive. Then take that external hard drive, plug it into your production machine and then start the rendering process on a second machine while you work on the machine that you do all your work on. But now there are other ways to do this. And if you choose not to go that route by an external drive, but you still want to render videos on that production machine on that different computer, you can actually do so now. What you need to do is to make sure that your home network can actually see, can actually recognize all of your computers and all of your drives. Then, as we said earlier, you need to make sure that you have all of your assets on your production machine. So let's take a look at what we mean by that. Typically, if you have computers connected by Ah, home network. You'll be able to see all of those computers on the same network in this area of windows. As long as you can see those other computers, you can actually access their hard drive, provided that you've done all of the networking involved. So what you want to be able to do is you want to be able to see the network drive on another PC. So, for example, as you can see this particular computer on this network, even though this is not the computer I'm working on, I can move files over to this Dr. And this computer can see for lack of a better word into mind so they can move files back and forth to my. So what that means is that I can actually access files to do my transfer using my home network so that when you're using Camped Asian nine and let's say that you want to run a batch job, What you're going to do is you're gonna go and add files. Where you gonna go? Get those files where that's when you'll go and get the files from the network, as opposed to getting them from your hard drive. Now, this actually does work best at the files or local. But in some cases, what you can do is you can transfer all of the files temporarily through the network been operated that way. You know, if you find that that's too much stress on your network, you can make some accommodations. But the point is that you can use your home network to access files back and forth, and you can use them to run on Camp Tasia. As we said before, the most important thing is that if you're using assets from your library, these libraries have to match the on both the production machine as well as this one. Otherwise, if you start rendering of video, your production machine will look for these assets. You don't have them on your production machine. It will stop the process. So you have to make sure that you've exported your entire library from the computer you work on to your production machine, and you can do that very easily if you just go to the library tab and then you look for export library. So you just gonna export your library to a zip drive and then you're gonna re upload it on your production machine, of course, is what we've been talking about. You can then have the production machine access the files on your creation machine in order to render your videos. That's really the point of having this network set up and having everything in one place. And this is can be especially helpful when you have multiple videos to do. And you're gonna run these jobs in a batch and you've either got to keep working or you've got to set it up so that you can start a process, walk away and then come back to your personal computer and do some work without having the resource is tied up. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 28. 0006 Using Project Files: Welcome back in this video, we're gonna be talking about Camp Taysir projects, media and recordings. Briefly, we talked about in the main course that you want to make use of Camp Tasia projects. So, yes, you're gonna record video. Yes, You're going to have a file that you're going to be working with. However, you want to be in the habit of also using the project files, which is any changes that you make anything that you add it. Anything that you add, any annotation that you make, you save it over in that project. What happens is you haven't done anything to the original recording, and it gives you the opportunity to work with that original file over and over again in different ways. Project means that you're gonna be able to save your and it's in a file as you make them. And it also means you can work with multiple media sources. So in other words, if you want to bring in another video, if you want to bring in some other audio, you want to bring in something that's not in the library. You can, and you don't have to worry about it causing any problems with something that you previously done, or even causing any problems with the recording because all these things go along with the right on top of the recording when you actually use them. And the only way that you can make use of those things is that you have to use the project feature. So basically what a project does, is it safe sign it saves you've time from having that we do and restart videos once you have made a mistake. And this is a major thing to learn that you want to make sure that you're saving the projects. Once you have corrected something or even if you make a mistake, you can always go back and fix that mistake through the editing process. So don't record over and over again. Do one take and then just use your project file. You think of something that you want to insert into the video. You want to use a project, you think of something that you want to change about a project. You use the project file Now. This is important concept to understand, especially as we approach this next concept in the next video, which is doing all your videos of one. Take something that we mentioned in the basic course, but really want to kind of expand on that and let you know why This is important to do, Why it saves time and why it's going to affect how you do the rest of your videos. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 29. 0007 Recording In One Take: Welcome back in this video, we're gonna be talking about another concept which is doing all your videos and one take. And you do have to understand concept we talked about previously, which is projects making sure that you're doing all your videos and one take it requires that you use the project feature in time that you any time that you add or change anything , you don't want to stop the recording and start another one over. You want to save even the mistakes to your project file. It's much more effective to do this and go back and edit out your mistakes. To do this, you want to be able to see on the timeline where you need to edit by putting a marker there , and we've shown you how to do this. But let's go over that again, and you can do that by going to the marker menu and then just going to this bar and they do that again. You can do that as many times as you want to. And remember, you can also do this during the recording process by hitting the marker key while you're actually recording, which is again yet another reason why you want to make sure that you are doing your videos with. And these two screens want to be able tohave that timing that marker off to the side where you can click it yet at the same time, keep focused on what it is you're presented now what some marketers, myself included, mark their own at his space by stopping, allowing a little silence to pass and then clapping three times loudly near the mic like this. What this does is this produces a visual effect on the audio timeline that look different than anything that you're doing if you're talking and that means when you see those three claps when you see that signal, that means in that that's where you need to go and focus your attention in editing. Now again, you can do this while you're actually recording. So while you're recording, if you heard kind of cruising along and you're talking and then you discover all I should have said something else would you want to do is you want to stop clap three times and then go back to the point where you should have said something different and then you'll know how to determine where it is you're going to actually place you're in it, but you mark the place and which you make the mistake during the recording process. And of course, as we said, all of this is going to be visible on the timeline. And as you do these things, you want to be able to keep your changes and you save them as you go into your project file . Now the other thing that you want to do, you want to make sure that you program the pause button as you record the way that you want it. This is an important thing because you need to be able to pause, recording at the push of a button. If you try to do it by catching your mouse and trying to figure out where you're going to click on the actual recording toolbar, it'll keep you from finding the most accurate point and delaying you and how you're going to be ableto amateur video. So you want to make sure that Pause button is programmed the way that you want it. And basically, what that means is that when you look at your tools option inside your recording toolbar. I want to make sure that whatever you program this to be that you know what it is. If it's gonna be f nine, it's gonna be controlled at nine. That you're able to go to that button and you're able to click it in order to make the recording do what you wanted to do, so there will be a default. But you can change that default to be whatever you want it to be. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video. 30. 0008 Webcams And Picture In Picture Video: Welcome back. Now, in this video, we're gonna be talking about recording picture in picture video. And rather than go over some of the technical aspects of this process, it's kind of important to give you some ideas on how to think about this. And then the technical parts will be fairly simple. Picture in picture video is a good way to personalize your tutorial videos. What you're doing is you're putting a an image or a video of yourself, typically in the bottom right hand corner. And so, if you think about seeing a square of yourself, your entire background and you really giving life to the video, this is a great way of personalizing power point video. Even sometimes a screen share video and what this does is allows you to protect yourself while you explain your concept. So it's not just you being detached from the subject. You are really giving people, and I d probably teaching someone an idea that either you agree with or something that you have some strong feelings about. Now you do want to be aware of where you're going to be on the screen, and one of the things we talked about The main course is the fact that you can put this square. You can organize it. Any place you can put in any place on the screen, you can arrange it at the top, right top left any place that you want, However, if you're gonna be recording power point or even if you're going to be risk Orting screen share videos. You need to be aware while you're recording where the video is gonna be. Unfortunately, you're not going to be able to see the square while you're recording. So if you know you're gonna be in the bottom right hand corner, you want to leave that area open whether or not you doing power point whether or not you were doing screen sharing. And yes, you want to recreate your slides knowing where your video is going to appear. And this is especially going to be helpful because you don't want to go back and redo slides or you don't want your video to overshadow the words. Remember, you're not using words to have people read your using words to enhancer bolster what it is you trying to say in your video. Now you could use your computer's webcam in order to do this. But it's probably going to be best that you get a webcam that will enhance this process, and it's recommended that you get a webcam like the Logic Tec 9 30 e. There's a reason that this is a recommended camera. It's probably gonna be a little more expensive than your average webcam, but it renders at 1920 by 10 80 which is high definition, and it really uses less of your computers processing power. In other words, the resource is of the webcam run inside the webcam, as opposed to other cameras where the resource is run on the computer. That's very important because it keeps you from having Layton see in your video. It keeps you from having a mismatch between what's happening in the video and people hearing your words. And this makes a very credible video and execute people paying attention. You can see the logic Tec 9 30 right here and actually doesn't look different than any other webcam. What's most important, And even if you can't get this particular camera, you don't like this one. You want to get one where the resource is, do not have to run on the PC. That's the most important thing. That's what makes for the timing in your videos to be in sync with the actual Web cam. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 31. 0009 Batch Converting Audio To Mp3 Using Camtasia: Welcome back. Now, in this video, we're going to talk about converting some of your project files to MP three and in version eight of Camped Asia, which is what you're seeing on your screen. You're looking at the batch production and what we're gonna do is we're just gonna grab some files here and we're gonna go through this process and we're going to go and look at one particular preset, which is the MP three pre set and used to be that you could do just this, which is to convert. We're not gonna go through this entire process, but you could convert a video using Camped Asia to MP three. Now we're gonna go to camped Asian Night that featured no longer exists, so you can no longer use your batch to convert multiple videos into multiple MP threes. The other thing is that when you want to convert ah file, you can export an audio to away file or to an M four a file. But again, you cannot do this during a batch. Now, the Onley format that you can actually use during a batch we're going to show you this. We're just gonna go through this process. And if we were to look for a particular preset, we have one set up for new IMF or a audio, so we can actually run a batch job for him for a audio. But that's the only audio that we can run a batch for. So the way to convert multiple files at the same time is to bring them into your iTunes account. Now, you don't have iTunes. ITunes is free in order to download to your hard drive. And once you actually have these files in a certain playlist, you can then highlight them all. And you can then create an MP three versions. So the process is a little more indirect. You're gonna have to batch produce in for a files. You're gonna pull those in for a files into iTunes, and then you're going to bulk turn them into MP three versions just by highlighting them all and then clicking, create impede three versions. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video 32. 0010 Batch Bulk Zipper: Welcome back. Now, in this video we're gonna be talking about taking the batch job that you have run and then being able to finalize for production and delivery using a time saving process. Once you created all your videos, you're gonna wanted package them for delivery and for sale. And you can do this very easily with the Rahm zipper program with Rahm Zipper, you can zip multiple files simultaneously. And the most important thing is that you have all your files in the same folder without any additional folder. Now, what this does is this makes the batch job that you just did. Easy to zip and easier to upload to your host. In order to deliver them to your buyer, you can find Rob Zipper by just googling download Rahm Zipper. It is a free program. And once you get it on your hard drive, let's take a look and see what it will do. Well, Rahm, Zipper opens up you want to do is find the folders where your files are that you're going to want to work with and we found Are you gonna notice that there are 10 finals and what we want to do is we want a bundle. These when a bundle. These all at once. And we went a bundle these quickly. Well, now that we have found the folder, all we're going to do is we're going to highlight all of our files, and they were gonna click ZIP files, and then we're gonna figure out where we want them to go. I would have put him in the very same driver that came from as soon as we click. Okay, Rahm Zipper is going to start the process of bundling up our files and you'll see that here in the left hand corner doesn't take very long. And then what you'll see is you'll see the files come into view, and then all you really have to do then is take your files and upload them wherever you like to host them. And that's a very easy way of being able bundle the content that you ran with the batch and then continue to save time to put your effort into other things. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video 33. 0011 Drawing Tool Basics: Hello and welcome. Now, in this video, we want to explore the drawing tool. And so you're looking at your recording toolbar for camped Asian I, and we're going to just start by clicking the record button. Remember, we get this message because we're actually using two instances of camp. Tasia, you will not see this warning message. We click. OK, the countdown will begin. Okay, We have camped Asia's set to minimize to the toolbar. So we're gonna bring this up and what you're going to notice is that the effects menu comes up. We've already seen where we can add a marker, but the part that we're going to look at right now is this screen drawing. And of course, if you're using multiple screens, this toolbar would be off to the sides and this would not be showing to your viewer. But this is a fairly useful tool and which you'll notice is that when you click the screen draw button, the rest of the effects come available. Now what we can do is we can actually choose to use the pin, which we have, and let's see what the pin actually does. One of the things that it does is it draws right. And so this probably works extremely well if you have a tablet. But it works very well, even if you don't. And you were able to draw lines on your presentation, which again leads to more of the credibility. Now you don't have with a mouse. It would be very difficult to write like this. But you can draw and you can draw circles. And of course, we're able to do that in the editing process. Also, we can also explore where we can change the color, right so we can change it to blue. We can also change the with so we could make the lines very thick. So once again, I mean, you see that we can use each of these effects and we can actually close this effect and do away with it now the way that you would actually cause the writing to go away. So, for example, if we were to draw a line around this circle, all we would need to do is to hit the escape key. And then the toolbar closes and the writing goes away. So once again, we decide on the Penn. We're gonna use with. And then when we're tired of writing or we don't want to have it appear on the screen, we can click, OK? And actually, then we go back to being able to use our mouse. So once again, this drawing feature is a useful tool when you have information on a power point, and sometimes it's less dynamic than you'd like it to be. Well, this is one way of being able to keep your viewers attention without having to do things with the animation or make your power point inconsistent. Keep your power point consistent, and then you use points of emphasis using tools like the screen drawing program. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 34. 0012 Before You Hit Record: Now, this video, we want to discuss some things that you want to do before you hit record, and and and you're going to understand why these things are important to do beforehand. And of course, it almost seems that this would be elementary. You want to make sure you have your content ready, you're gonna read it. If you're going to refer to it, it needs to be available. Before you actually hit the record button, you shouldn't have to go and search for. And you really don't even want to pause the video to go get it. It really does disturb the continuity. It can disturb the level of your voice. It can disturb a lot of things if you have to stop your presentation in order to retrieve something that should be readily available right in front of you. The screen cast videos work best when you already have some knowledge or expertise, and that it goes without saying if you're going to be presenting something, even if you're presenting something that you're using the private label whites in order to present, you should have some knowledge. You shouldn't be reading it for the first time. If you're going to do a video that's actually gonna be interesting in that for people to listen to. You don't want to read anything if you read from Ah, Power Point. If you read from a word document, it's going to sound like it. And so you are gonna have some knowledge of the subject matter, so that if you have to stop reading or if you have to stop referring and you actually have to given anecdote, you actually have to talk or tell a story. You were going to be able to make it interesting for your audience. For your viewers. Open up the tabs on your browser headed times in Sync wins. You want to think through your presentations and don't get to your presentation and have to open up tabs and open up browsers. The time that you think it takes is a video creator is a lot longer to the person experiencing it. You don't want to spend your time one camera opening tabs looking for things in your browser. These things should already be ready. They should already be in sequence, and this is especially true when you're looking at programs like Google Chrome or Firefox, where and then explore these. These give you the opportunity to set up tabs ahead of time. You should have already thought through your presentation before you actually ate the record button. And this has been said many different instances. You don't want to linger a neat screen too long. So if your screen casting don't leave your screen up very long done, obviously, sometimes you're gonna have to violates this principle. But Hollywood actually changes screens every eight seconds for a reason. That's because our attention span is just short assed human beings, and this could also have to do with the modern day. So you want to make sure that if you can, you want to switch something on your screen for a minimum of every eight seconds. If you keep some action going of any kind, we talked about using the markers. Viewers will not be quick to lose interests again. This has been discussed before, but don't create videos with two or three subjects. You show people with things one of the time you talk about one subject in time. Even if the video is very short, it's better if you have one subject in one video rather than three subjects in one short video or one medium link video. You want people to be able to look at the title of the video and know exactly what you're about to get, and they decided to click on Watch it, but you don't want is for you to have to make a title. It's so very long that people don't know exactly what you're saying or for them to click on a video and actually think they're getting something. And then they get a lot more or less than what they I really thought the video was gonna be about. Always assume you're viewing those nothing. They'll break down your video in the bite size chunks again. Short videos wanted concept at a time. You don't want to try to do something really complex unless you're really breaking down the steps, and it's so try to keep your steps in separate videos. If you are going toe, add in title clips and music, gonna slick them before you start the project again. That goes without saying, And if you're recording multiple videos, it's important to make sure that your content is uniforms. So in other words, you are doing a SYRIZA 10 videos. Then you want to do everything you can to make sure that your voice is uniform. The power points, a uniform. Everything that you're doing should look similar to all the other videos in the series. That's pretty important to do, and this is probably the same. You want to try to avoid using different styles inside of one video you're going to do screen sharing trial. You're going to do screen sharing. Try to stick to screens, hearing going to do animated, try to stick, to animate it. Don't do a lot of different styles of one video against disorienting for the actual viewer , and it can be confusing. And even though it might keep their attention, it might not get your point to where you actually want it to be. Not wise is all this important, and we've actually hinted at this because to do something like this and this is what you don't want to do. I don't want a type on your screen cast video. Go looking for websites. You don't want to search for information. This is disorienting, and it's an invitation for people to tune out of your video, all of the typing that you can do ahead of time. You want to do it ahead of time, you don't want to type on your video. And if you must do it, if you must type even after you have set things ahead of time, you pause the video, then type. This is an important distinction to make. So again you pause the video than type. Do your typing right in the information you want and then come back to the video because that really holds your viewers attention and makes your videos concise. And it also gives them the opportunity to connect with your information. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 35. 0013 Creating A Gif With Camtasia: Welcome back. Now, this video, we're gonna be talking about one of the little use features in camped. Asian people typically use tools and order to create Jeffs. And this is actually something that you can create in the camp. Tasia. So what we're going to do in order to create a chip? Of course, we are not going to use the audio. And once again, whenever we make a big change like this and we're gonna do something totally different with the fire, we're going to save it into what a new projects. We're gonna go to the file. We're gonna say this as a new project. Okay, so we've got our indication from camped Asian that our project that saved And so we have a video file on track one. And so, typically, if you can, Typically, if you have a short video clip, something like five seconds at the most, typically 3 to 7 seconds. And what we're gonna do is we're just going to get a split this track. Eso Let's get rid of the escaped with the marker area, and then let's go ahead and split this track, and we're going to do away with this part, and we just want a little short video clip that we can use in order to create a Jiff and camped. Asian makes this very easy to do. If you can get the video went to the timeline, you're going to click and you're going to do a new custom production and you'll see here. One of the menu options is to create a gym or an animation file. Now all of these factors are going to be the default settings and it for the most part. You probably want to leave the default settings as they are, unless you know of a reason to not use them. So we're going to continue one with the default settings in Camp Tasia. We are not going to in bed this in HTML, and so once we do this, we're just going to click. Next. We're gonna have a place where we save it and we're going to click finish so the video renders fairly quickly. And then there's a process. You'll be able to use this shift as your image, and you'll be able to use it where you want animation for your viewers to see. Okay, so that is a very simple way of being able to create a Jiff. Having a short video clip, the read of five seconds, maybe seven at the most. Putting on the timeline. Scratch out the audio and then run the Jif sequence. Okay, so what? That. Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 36. 0014 Customer Service With Camtasia: one of the ways you should absolutely be using capitation if you haven't done so already, is in conjunction with screen cast dot com to do customer service. So right now you're looking at a Web browser. You're looking at your recorder. So let's give a scenario where you would have to explain to your customer how to do research on Google and this would take a Google search and you'd want to show them how the look, of course, one of the good things that you can do with can't Asia is actually walked through that process where you type in the search term, where you get the search term where you scroll through the list of information to find out which one would be best to do. And, of course, all you're gonna have to do in order to do this is to hit your recording toolbar and to record once again. This message comes because we're recording with two instances of Camp Tasia right now, this is going to start the recording. And so if we look through our digital camera information, this is just hypothetical. And even if we were to find out, what are the key words there were and then decided we were going to look at information here. Just based on that, while being able to do a quick video tutorials is one of the best little ways that you can actually use Camped Asia in order to do customer service and in order to explain to your clients exactly what you mean, as they say, a picture's worth 1000 words. So what happens after the recording? Well, okay, so we stop the recording. It's about 41 seconds. What happens is the video comes into the media. Been We're gonna bring it down to the timeline now. One of the things that we can do is we can share this video to screen cast dot com, and we're gonna do Women at screens has dot com. We're going to get a link to give to our customers, So let's go do that right now. So we're just going to look briefly at the fact that this project is rendering. We're gonna turn the camera back off until it's complete. Okay, so now it's completing and complete. It will now upload to screen cast, which is a fairly short process, depending on how much space your video is actually going to take. So now what we have, it's screen cats where we have a link. We have a video. So instead of trying to explain to our customer exactly what we're trying to tell them, we will just grab this link. It will pass a go into them, and after some time we might want to go into screen, cast and clear out some of those videos. But this gives us an opportunity to give high levels of customer and client service and at the same time save ourselves time by making sure that we explain things correctly the first time. So Camp Tasia is great for this use, and it's mirrors another text myth program called James. A number of entrepreneurs and educators use that system, and it works. Justus Well camped Asia does the very same thing as Jane, so make sure to use is tool and the way that helps you best. With that. Thanks and I will see you in another video 37. 0015 Two Important Factors About Interactive Videos With Camtasia: Welcome back on this video. We want to talk about some of the basics of interactivity and so that you understand very succinctly exactly what you're doing. Now. Interactivity can be anything you see markers or quizzes. It can be in the annotations area. It can be an interactive hot spot. It can be not only a marker, but a quiz or survey. And so these are ways that we can create a video, have the video actually get our audience to do something, or look or interact something before the video actually continues. And basically, we use that to our advantage to interact with our audience, either to move them where we want them to move or to get information from them. Now they're two key connections to make. When you start talking about interactivity number one, when we actually go through the custom production, we're going to produce a series of files. That series of files is gonna come with HTML. That means then that we can then use that html toe upload to a website Now. The other thing is that when we create that video and we uploaded to screen cast dot com, which is tech Smith's website. That gives us the opportunity to use some of the features in our interactive video that we can actually embed this code onto another website, providing that we can understand and get the sizing right. In this case, we see 1920 by 10 80. We've never in bed at that size. But if we can embed into, for example, our WordPress website at a certain side, then that gives us a different dimension off these actual videos, and it gives us the opportunity to do a few different kinds of things, such a surveying and branching that we might not have to do otherwise. And because our videos are going to be so specific and screen cast videos, we can actually use them to help our clients tell us more about themselves so that we can serve them better. We're gonna get into that in another video. So again, the most important thing is that you can embed onto a WordPress site. That's what you want to do. Or you could take the files that are produced in the custom production settings, and we can upload them to a server where we have HTML. So either way, We have access to place our interactive videos onto individual web pages where we can then use them according to our plans. Okay, so what? That. Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 38. 0016 Embedding Your Screencast Com Video To Wordpress: Welcome back. Now, this video, what we want to do is we want to go ahead and produce a video for screen cast dot com and then we want to use the embed tool to our WordPress website. So what we're going to do is we're just going to produce a video. We're going to assume that this video is already an interactive video. So we're not gonna go through the process of creating another interactive video. We're just going to go ahead and create the video and upload to screen cast dot com. Okay, so the upload press s is completing, and you're gonna notice that you now have an embed code. So we're gonna do is we're gonna go ahead and copy that embed code. We're gonna head on over to our WordPress site and we get a word press. What we're gonna do is we're going to just add a new post and we're going to use the text box. So we're gonna write in a title, and there were going to embed our content. Hey, so we're going to just drop that text in there, and then we're just going to click publish. Now we can do is we can take a look at our post. And what we're gonna notice is that this video is really taking up too much space in this frame. So we're probably gonna have to adjust it so we can assume that all the way across is going to be about 900 pixels. So if we are someplace in the area of four or 500 wide, that should help us in some way. So we're going to go into the code. I'm going to change the with 26 40 by 4 80 And one of the reasons why we're doing that, of course, is that maintains the aspect ratio. So in other words, 1920 by 10. 80. We want to try to keep this as close as we can to the aspect ratio. So we've done that by going to 6 40 by 4 80 we're gonna update our post, and now we're going to take a look at it again. Okay, so our video now fits in our post, so want to make sure that if we're going to be giving instructions for interactive video that we have those instructions here and that we title this appropriately. But what we have now is we have the ability to put our interactive video on a specific page on the Web, where to use our WordPress site to do that. And if we already have a WordPress site that we're using, we can embed this code. The video will serve from screen cast dot com, and it will be interactive. And that's going to be important in something that we're going to do in a future video. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 39. 0017 Table Of Contents And Self Hosting Interactive Content: Welcome back in this video, we're going to go over what we can do with our markers if we want to section off different parts of the video. We can do that with a table of contents, and all we have to do is use our marker code. We want to make sure that our markers showing when our market bar is showing we mark off the different points that we want. Now, obviously, we're doing this arbitrarily. You would obviously do this according to your content, it wouldn't rename each marker. Okay, so now that we have our chapters lined up, we had them marked off. What's gonna happen is that Camp Taejin that produces the video that's going to give people the opportunity The skip ahead through different elements of the video. Based on the chapters that we have designated again, this again is another interactive video. And the only way they're gonna be able to do that is if they use the smart player so we can have this on screen cast dot com or we can have it on our servant. One of the things that we'd like to show you in this video is how the filing system works and how you would actually put it on your servant. We've already seen how you put it on screen cast dot com But now let's go ahead and process this video. We can walk through the table of contents process and then we can actually see how the file structure will be. So we're gonna do is we're going to go and we're going to now create a local file. And now that we have the custom production settings, we can go forward, we're going to choose the smart player, and then we're going to customize our actual player. Now to skip ahead. We're just going toe work with the table of contents, want to make sure it's ready and that it's searchable. Then we're gonna click next. Now we're gonna have one more screen after this, I'm gonna click next, and we're actually going to now be able to dictate what our table of contents is going to be like. We can fix it to the right, fix it to the left. We're gonna have text with thumbnail. We can number marker the injuries. We've got some flexibility over what our table of contents actually going to look like. So now what we're going to do is we're gonna click next. We're gonna go ahead and produce our project when things are going to see right off the bat is we're gonna have a number of files that are going to be available to us. So now we're just gonna click finish, and then we're gonna let the project start. It's rendering that the video is complete and you can see that we have our table of contents. It's clickable. But now this video is now in Our hard drive we're gonna do now is we're gonna take those files. We're not gonna upload them to our server. We're gonna come back here and open our production folder here. All the files and so now we're going to do is we're gonna upload them to a site. And so now the same file can be served from our server and can be represented here on our site for the same smart players there. The same level of interactivity is there. It's now one hour site and not on screen cast dot com. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video 40. 0018 Hotspots Daisy Chain: Welcome back Now. In the last video, we talked about the fact that we can have the last couple of videos. We talked about the fact that we can have these interactive videos on individual Web pages , And so now it's time to talk about what can we do inside the interactivity? Having a table of contents is great may or may not necessarily direct people in the way that we want. It doesn't necessarily illicit information from them. It does make for more pleasant experience. For the user, however, using hot spots is one way for us to be able to direct Ah, user who's watching our video to take an action. And so when we actually use, we're going to go into the annotations, we're gonna grab the interactive hot spot on. What we want to do is when a pick, a period, a specific period of time where our video is and we want to do something with that video. We want the user to have to click something now. The most important thing when you do this is to remember that you're gonna have to give the user some instructions, so this might be a point at which you are going to give them. You're gonna write something in here. You might write something in here. We're gonna go ahead and leave that one there. We might write something in here, like right, So we give them some instructions. Cook, explain If you want to talk to someone personally, we want the hot spot, then to do something right, we want them to click on that word, explain. And then we want something to be ableto happen when that happens. And so we want to do something over here in the properties and we can have it so that someone, when they click it, they actually go to a your l Basically, what we're trying to do in this hot spot is we're trying to get the user to do something. And again, if you combine this with being able to be on specific Web page, have this interactive video where you're going to give them some information, and then at each point, you're going to compel them to a call to action. And when they take that called action, send them to a specific website. You then have interactive marketing and customer service, keeping them engaged. We go beyond trying to entertain or just inform people, but to get them to take some kind of action. That's really what interactive hot spots are at the heart of. And we can do that very simply by making our button clickable and by making sure that the video does not go any further until they take some kind of action that we want to make sure that our words are at the same point at which the hot spot comes. So the user's thin starts understand. OK, well, maybe if I click this, then something will move on. Everything depends on the kind of instructions that you're able to give. So when someone clicks a certain link, if they want to talk to someone personally, what's a good thing for us to do? Well, the good thing for us to do is to try to get some information from them, right, just to try to figure out, maybe to try to help the person who's going to be taking the call there to help the person who's going to be serving that person, to try to find out a little bit more about them, and we want to be able to send that person to a place where they can give us some information. And that's really where our surveys come in. And so this u r l can be a page on your WordPress site with another interactive video. Basically, what we're doing is we are figuring out ways for us to chain together the interactivity. So we're not just informing. We're getting involved with the customer and we're actually getting information from them. Hopefully. Okay, so with that thanks. And I will see you in the next video. 41. 0019 Surveys And Chaining: Now that you understand the concept of Daisy chaining the hot spots canal look at surveys in a different way. And so we're gonna do is we're gonna open up quiz. Even though we're not really looking to quiz anyone. We're really looking to do a survey. And so we're going to ask some questions. I'm gonna write a question in here, and so we're gonna do is we're gonna display the feedback. And so if a person answers a certain way, we want something to happen. So we're gonna right in here. We're not thinking in terms of quizzing and writing. It wrong with the question is, who is your favorite copywriter and there's an answer. So if it's if the person says Dad Kennedy, well, then we want to send them to Maybe it could be our affiliate, Lee. Maybe it could be our site. Maybe Could be something where we are doing something that is representative of Dan Kennedy . We want to put that in there. Now, if you follow this, what you also could do now that you know you can put another video survey on your site is you can send the person to the next survey to narrow down their answers. So, in other words, an answer. The first question. And maybe you want to send them to a follow up question. Well, then you're gonna have a video there and another set of questions. And you could do that by dictating what you are. L they go to and you can actually have the video embedded in your WordPress site, or you can have it hosted on your side. It really doesn't matter. But you can deliver them to a another interactive video where they can answer another question. Ultimately, your goal is to get them to someplace where it's gonna be advantageous for them. The customer. Now you want to be able to make sure that the viewers don't see their results. We do want to score the quiz. That Okay, now, when all of these elements are where we want them, we've gotta you gotta survey there. We're going to send the person someplace they're gonna they're going to see their feedback . And so now we want to do is want to start the processing and we get to this page in the production wizard. We know that quizzing is now available now no longer grayed out. So what we can do is we're gonna continue to go forward, and now we're going to produce our video. Now. One thing that we also get the opportunity to do is we get the opportunity to customize our quiz. Now this is the table of Contents section. We go past that and we get to customize our quiz. And this is where we make sure that we're communicating the right things to our prospect. Our customer were acquaintance. I want to make sure that our button says take a five minute survey or a short survey and that we have niche specific information in these these spaces so that when they see our quiz, they're not unfamiliar with it, and it's going to make sense that they should want to take the survey in order to get something that you promise them. But you do have the opportunity to customize this information and the last screen before processing. And so once we process, we can either process as a smart player that we're gonna host on our site, or we can back up and actually host this site on screen cast dot com and embedded on our website. We can do it either way. The important thing is that when the user takes some kind of action that we send them to the next chain that we want them to be in. And if survey is the first part and you want them then to be sent to the page with the hot spot, you can do that where you can do advice. A verse in the point is that your interactive quiz, where your interactivity can send people toe Web pages. That's the most important thing. So whether someone watches a video all the way through where they get to a certain point, you can ask them to take an action if they want to see the rest of the video. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 42. 0020 Picture In Picture and the Color Out Tool: Welcome back. Now, in this video, we're going to talk a little bit about picture in picture videos, and you notice that the only the only video that's in the campus and on the timeline is actually a portrait talking head video. Now, we can actually import any other video into this practice that we want. And all we have to do is to go to file and the import command and look for other media. We can also look for recent Camped Asia recordings. In this particular case, let's just pull one of the Camp Tasia recordings into the timeline. Okay, so now we have this recording we're gonna do is we're gonna go ahead and add it to timeline at the plate head. Okay, so now we have a video and we have a talking head video. So what you're going to notice right away is that the talking head video seems to have disappeared. But as you can see, it's really on the bottom of two tracks, neither of which are opaque or either which are invisible. So what we need to do is we need to move this track up and move the others down, right? we can do that very easily. Just by changing the order of some of the tracks. Digital marketing entrepreneurs, many of whom use systems like Facebook, Live and YouTube, are looking for ways to be more connected. One of the ways that they're doing that is by making sure that they're in their videos. But the other thing that they're doing, they're coming back to this medium, but with no background. And so you may be wondering how people they're doing that. So how are they appearing as if they're literally on top of the screen? One of the first things you actually just did. You just make sure that you're talking at video was on top of the timeline. Right now we do not have a green screen, but if we did, all we really need to do is we need to take care of that color, and so we could go to the visual effects, and then we can drag one type of the track. Now, of course, we don't really have a color. A specific color, too, really take out. But you wouldn't want to make sure that if you wanted to appear right outside of your background that you just had a background that really contrast ID with where you are and that it was some color that could be easily removed inside a camped Asian. The process is very simple, and the most important part is to make sure that you have good lighting even before you get to camp. Tasia. When you do that successfully, what you are going to be able to do is you're going to be able to do things with hot spots that previously you may have been unable to do. And these were the two basic steps to being able to use Camped Asian nine in order to have your image cut out on top of your presentation. And all you really need to do is have a green screen video that shot with green in the background. You're gonna remove that with the removal color tool, and then you just got to make sure that the video is on top of the video. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video
