Brian Jackson



Born in Los Angeles in the middle of the last century, I have always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.

Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the past four years I've published well over 100 books in paperback and eBook formats. Oddly enough this includes eBooks on how to self-publish books and how to create professional looking book covers using the GIMP. I've also recorded and distributed a pair of audiobooks available for purchase on Amazon... See full profile

1. Let's Talk Microphones: Hi. In this presentation, I thought we'd talk microphones. Now, why talk microphones now so late? Well, because I just got my new blue Yeti microphone and I want to try it out. So I'm going to do a presentation on the history of my microphones. I'm gonna show you how I upgraded my you Demi audio over time. So let's begin with some audio considerations first so that we can talk about how to choose . Ah, microphone for you, Demi Recording First audio quality is probably even mawr important than video quality when it comes to recording au Demi lecture. The reason is is that you know you can you can do things like zoom in and stuff toe to fix up the blurriness, maybe of some audio of video quality. But audio quality is just there. You're kind of stuck with it. You can run things through audacity a little bit, try and clean him up, trying to use some of the camp Tasia clean up things. But basically, if you don't have good audio to start with your kind of hosed, so invest in your audio quality. Selecting a microphone is a matter of cost, convenience and quality you're gonna see. What we're talking about is we get into the microphones, headphone microphones, air inexpensive and extremely convenient. Unfortunately, the quality of the audio is relatively low. Regardless, I used a headset microphone to record 13 you Demi courses, so it is possible to dio higher quality. USB microphones are moderately inexpensive, and they're pretty convenient as well. They produce great audio. So this is the way that I recommend you go get a moderately expensive USB microphone for yourself. Professional equipment is probably too expensive and cumbersome, at least for me to consider for you damn e course recording. So with this list of considerations in our pocket, let's go ahead and go through the history of my microphones. Okay, I began recording you Demi courses, knowing very little I used snag it, a cheap version of Camp Tasia by Tech Smith to record my first couple courses. Or so I used a headset microphone I found laying around that came free with Rosetta Stone, right? But it's about a $9 microphone, and it turned out that the quality of the recordings were really poor. It was so poor that I had to upgrade my headset before recording my first course. I just couldn't do it with the free headset microphone that I had. So next I got a quality headset microphone, the microphone that I chose his logic text 6 50 USB headset and was $59. So it's a pretty expensive headset microphone. I like the convenience of the small headset, and the recording quality seemed to be adequate for making you Demi courses. You are currently listening to logic headset microphone. You could see that it has a little bit more attack, and it's just not quite as Melo and full as this stone wall microphone I've used to record the rest of the course. So I find it to be sharper with more attack, and it picks up more unwanted sounds, especially civil. It s is in pops of various things because it doesn't have a pop filter on it. So this film, this had said, is pretty good, but not the best you can dio. Next we have an unsuccessful microphone upgrade story for you. After making some money, I decided to upgrade my microphone from my headset to a really you know, somewhat professional microphone. I picked up an audio Technica, 80 are 2100 USB microphone and proceeded to plug it in. I also got a pop filter with it. What you need. Pop filters with the independent microphones? Not as much with the headsets. I hooked up the microphone with little difficulty and started a pickup. Weird humming sounds. I got delay between the head sets and the microphone. I started searching on the Internet and found that there were notorious problems with Windows eight and microphones and delays, and ultimately, I ended up returning. The microphone went back to my headset. After all, it was convenient. I liked it. Then I had a successful microphone up grid. And in fact, this is very recent. This the first time I'm recording with this new microphone. I recently got the years to give the microphone upgrade one more try and purchased. Ah, Blue Yeti USB microphone. Now this is on 100 and $29 microphone, so it's pretty high end for the moderately priced microphones. I got it after reading several glowing reviews on various Facebook groups. I love my blue Yeti. This thing is really nice, and the sound is just mellowing and Oh, I just love it. You're currently listening to my blue Yeti Mike. In fact, I'm using my blue Yeti to record the entire lecture. Other than these section on the logic where I plugged that microphone in so you could hear it. Another good, inexpensive microphone at least that I hear, is the Blue Snowball USB microphone. This thing's quite small, and it's only about $55. I have no experience with it myself, but I hear and read good things about the snowball. The other thing that I want to mention is that with the microphone you need to get a pop filter. The pop filter keeps your breath from blowing against the microphones. You don't hear breath sounds as much, and they're fairly cheap there, about $6. It keeps your breath out of the mike while letting your voice through the pop filter basically, and finally you need headphones. You need a nice set of comfortable headphones because you're gonna be wearing them for a while. Yeah, they get sweaty. All headphones get sweaty, would make sure that they're not crimping your ears and stuff like that, and that they're blocking out other sounds. So you're just hearing your recording. Most microphones except a 3.5 millimeter jack, one of those little dinky pinprick connectors. So look for that kind of microphone I got. My blue Yeti USB microphone is a bundle with the pop Felter and a set of J V C. Headphones. $469. Pretty pricey, but I was going for it. I've made some money on you, Demi, and it was time to upgrade. So let's look at an overview of things cheap, USB Head said about nine bucks. Unacceptable. Don't use this kind of microphone for recording you Demi courses. The logic text. 6 50 USB headset I think I proved that it's just barely acceptable to record you Demi courses by recording 13 courses using this microphone. The Audio Technica. I had problems with it. I couldn't get it to work with Windows eight. Maybe you'll have better luck. The Blue Yeti USB microphone. Oh, I love it. This microphone is exceptional. It's the microphone I'd recommend, but it is $129. I'm interested in the Blue Snowball USB microphone. Maybe I'll have to pick one up just to see how nice it is. This is only $54 I hear that the quality is very good. I don't know if it's a good is the Blue Yeti. And finally, what I picked up was a blue Yeti bundle with a pop filter and J. V C headphones for $169 on Amazon. Once again, the Blue Yeti is exceptional, and it's the microphone that I would recommend. I hope that that helps you out a little bit by looking at microphone options. 2. Recording Your Webcam with Camtasia Studio: Hi, everyone. In this lecture, we're going to look a recording your webcam using Cam Tasia studio. So here we go with using Camp Tasia to record your webcam or how to add a talking head video to your lectures. We're gonna begin by discussing the two options that you have for recording your webcam. The first is to record a full screen talking head video. The second option you have is to record a picture in picture talking head with a screen capture can't Asia will capture your screen and at the same time it will capture what's coming through your webcam. But before we begin, I want to take a look at my new Webcam. Let's take a look at equipment Now, this is a nice piece of equipment I'm about to show you. The reason I got it is that my built in webcam records on Lee the top of my head. It's on the top of the 27 inch widescreen and it doesn't point down. So all I see is the top of my head. So I had to get another webcam and the webcam that I got is a lodge Itek HD pro Webcam the 9 20 It's a widescreen webcam and its high definition it's really nice. Okay, having covered that, we're going to discuss how to record a full screen talking head video. We begin in the Camp Tasia Studio Ender. We're working to be using a new menu option. Go to Mawr and select record camera. The record camera screen gives you the option of recording the Webcam. The first thing you have to do is select the device you want to record from. So we're right now using the integrated Webcam, which doesn't work. And instead what we're going to do is use my large tech age T pro. When I select that I can actually see myself speaking here, I'm looking to the side because I'm actually looking at the side of the screen. The next thing that I can configure is the format of the recording. Here I have the option selecting the output size now by default. When I started this before it would come out it like 3 20 by 4 20 or 3 20 by 2 40 it would be very small what you want to do to record a full screen in high definition widescreen is to check 12 80 by 7 20 Make sure that selected. Also, make sure that your frame rate this 30 frames per second. That should be the default, so you should be OK. RGB 24 is also fine for the compression. Once you selected all of that click apply the next thing that you want to configure were set up Is your audio options here I click set up, and I could select the microphone that I'm using for input here. I can use my Webcam microphone, the built in PC microphone or my preference My blue yeti microphone. Go to next and click Finish. Now you're done. You set up your microphone and your webcam all you have to do now this click start recording. Hi, everybody. Here I am recording on my webcam. Now I'm gonna hit start recording so that I can show you what happens in the video editor. Okay, we're back to the video editor and that's asking where would you like to save this particular recording? We're going to save it as a web cam to I already have one. So yes, go ahead and replace it. And here is inserted my picture of my webcam, Me licking my lips. Let's go ahead and play that and see what it looks like. Hi, everybody here I am recording on my webcam Sure looks good enough to me. So that's recording a full screen video on your Web cam. Notice that all it does is create a new track down here in the Camp Tasia recorder. I can merge this with other tracks, too, have this seamlessly integrated with presentation slides, as I've done in this course. Next, we're gonna look at recording a picture and picture talking head video. We begin in the Camp Tasia editor, where we select record screen in the upper left hand corner. Once we click that the Can't Asia recorder appears now, Usually we just set up our audio and then begin recording. In this case, we're going to use the Web cam configurations to turn on the webcam and record that as well . To do that, click on the pull down for the Webcam and from the pop up, click the Webcam that you want to use. I want to use the lodge tech HD pro, so I'll click on that. The Camp Tasia recorder opens up a new little window, showing me what's being recorded on the screen and the Webcam is now checked is being on. So now I'm recording the screen and the Webcam at the same time. Once I click record, let's go ahead and click record and the countdown begins. Three to one we're recording. Here we are recording to the opening to the presentation. When we're done, we hit F 10 and were brought to the video preview screen. All we've got to do is click Saving Edit. Hi, everybody. This is me on the Web Cam and a picture and picture with my title slide. When I'm done recording my video, I'm tossed back here into the video editor. Notice that we've actually recorded two tracks here that have been added to the video editor. One is my Webcam track, and the other is the screen recording track. I can play them both of the same time here. Notice that the Web recording where the Webcam recording has turned into a little many picture in the lower right hand corner of the screen. I congrats that and move it to someplace that is going to be free on the screen. I can also make it a little larger by dragging a corner. Now, when I'm ready to preview it, all I've got to do is hit the play button. Hi, everybody. This is me on the Web Cam and a picture and picture with my title slide. All I do is edit. The video is I would any other video So that's recording your webcam in Can't Asia Studio. 3. How I Record Lectures: Hello and welcome to my lecture, how I record lectures or how to get the screen recording into the can. This lecture is in response to a student question. So the course is being recorded in response to a speed back from a student. The student point out a message and he said this The topic I'd really like to see is how exactly you were recording lectures. Are you doing them in one shot or you gluing lectures from separate recorded pieces? Do you have a written script for whatever you're saying and so on? Maybe I missed that part. Well, in my opinion, this is great feedback. You Demi instructors really appreciate this kind of feedback. This is telling me exactly what I need to do for my course, and this lecture is in response to that. So I don't think the student missed the part. I think I missed the part by not including it in the course in the first place. So I'm going to try and address that issue now. Let me begin In the beginning, it all begins with an outline and in fact, the outline for a lecture is really comes after the outline for the entire course exists. I use a simple text file, the outline, my courses When I'm first throwing the ideas together, I just find that a text file and moving ideas around works great. And I'm gonna show you one of those text files at the end of the slide section. And lecture titles come from my text file directly into you, Demi as the curriculum. So I outline and set up section and lecture titles in my text file and then directly used them to create my curriculum. Now, if this is gonna be a slide based presentation, I use Power Point. Organized my lectures into slides. I create a set of slides with a title on each slide. So there, I've got my major points. I'm gonna have a slide on this major point. And then I used the individual bullet items as the talking points within the slide. So I find power point to be a great way to outline. So it seems to proceed this way from the text file into the U Demi course curriculum. Then I break it into lectures which are individual power point files. Then the individual slides are broken from that, and then the talking points that are broken down into bullets within each slide. Before going any further, I wanted to show you the text editor in which I'm editing a text version of my outlines. It's a file called You Demi class idea dot txt and I'm just It's just a text file in which I'm accumulating class ideas. The first thing here is an outline for a you Demi marketing course, which I actually never recorded. Maybe I will someday, but you can see that the major section breaks are not indebted. The lecture titles are so I can see the sections and titles, and this goes directly into you Demi as the curriculum. This is the layout for a course just down below it. Here is an outline for a lecture here. I just have the titles for slides. This is information that I want to cover. Next here I have a list of topics that I'm thinking of developing courses for, And then after that, here's a complete outline for my Excel course, which I did record and release. It shows you the here. In this case, each of the lectures is numbered and I have, Ah, little talking points or slide possibilities or screen cast options down below. It just keeps on going. Here's another. Here's a layout for a WordPress course that I never recorded, where I have section titles and lecture titles, so you just lay it out all in in Texas, it's easy toe manipulate lines to change the titles of things to move things around until you get it more or less right. And then it goes straight into you, Demi. In fact, I even went so far as to record and prioritize various things that I was working on and enhancements that I wanted to make to my existing courses and prioritize those. And then, finally, it ends with the latest course that I'm recording, where I have used a blank space to indicate a section header. So here's Step zero. Preparing to publish is the section header and then innit? Here the lectures and even indented the sub items or potential power point screen titles for lectures within that topic. So this is the way I outlined things in text it and the online doesn't last very long. It lasts about long enough for me to transfer this over to you Demi as the curriculum for the upcoming course. But this is the area where I can also play with ideas. You should outline your course to make sure that you have enough to say on it before you start creating it. Have a complete outline laid out. Get your talking points from beginning to end. What are you going to say in this course? And I find it easy to do in a text file in response to the question, Do I script what I'm saying? Well, I wouldn't say that I never use a script, but it's pretty close. The only time I script what I'm going to say is during promotional videos and in such scripted dialogues, I'm pretty much accompanied by slides that contain the words that I'm saying. So the words I'm saying go across the screen as I'm saying them in promotional videos. Sometimes this is the only time I use a script, and the only time that I can think of that it's literally okay to read the power point bullets on the slide. I do use power point slides to prompt me through my dialogue, though, so we're gonna look at using presentation slides is a prompt. I love having lectures with slides because the titles and the bullet items prompt me through my talking points. I know exactly what I need to discuss, and I can even somewhat anticipate what's coming up next because, after all, I did just a little while ago create thes lecture slides, and all I need to do if I have decent slides is to paraphrase each bullet and elaborate upon it and do things in sequence. So it's a really convenient way to present a lecture. You should try not to be surprised by the next talking point or the If there's an error in the next bullet that comes up, just talk right on through it, or pause and fix it up in post production. The big down slide to creating slides is the amount of time that it takes to correct create the presentation slides. It takes probably more time to create the slides than it does to record them and then do the post production on the recording. So this is taking a long time to do this particular lecture. It takes far less time to just prepare and do a screen cast recording of leading somebody threw a demonstration of something. So I want to talk about the slide editing process. Before leaving slides. Be sure to edit your slides for spelling and grammatical errors. It's kind of embarrassing, and it's a little shocking as you're bringing up the talking points and you find an air in your talking point most the time. I just talk right over it, and it stays in the recording during the process of writing, revising and editing. This is another good reason to do it. You're going to be memorizing the flow of your presentation. You'll also be preparing to anticipate points to emphasize. So if you have hot points that you really want to talk about, well, you'll know where they're coming. In the presentation, you'll be able to elaborate on them, and you'll be able to avoid being surprised by the next content that comes onto the screen . That's always a little embarrassing, but then again, it usually just results in a pause. And then you edit that out in post production. Don't record too long after preparing your slides. Otherwise you're gonna have a lot of pauses and a lot of surprises to have to edit out in post production, and that just makes the recording process a lot longer. So what about screen casts? I've got to admit, I pretty much wing it, but I will say this about doing screen casts. I always demonstrate things that I know like the back of my hand. So I'm not surprised, right? I don't have any problem walking people through using something that I've done hundreds of times. Now, practice your lecture. You should practice your lecture before you recording not only so that you can streamline the process that you're working on notice. If you walk through it, you're gonna be able to set up files and you're gonna be able to set up applications to bring him up and stuff like that. Whatever you've got to do to do your lecture. But you're also optimizing or setting up the recording process. You know where the highs and lows there going to be in your preparing for that? So you're learning all of these things as you practice your lecture. Note that practice is important for both slide and screen. Caste based lectures don't practice too much, though you don't want to lose a really good presentation of your lectures stuff because you weren't recording at the time. And remember, You know, if you do mess up a recording or something, you can always clean it up or throw it away. As long as it isn't too imperfecta, you can pretty much saver recording. Okay. Practicing can quite often produce artifacts along the way that you need to clean up before you record again. For instance, if you're showing how to create a file or how to create a, let's, say, a book cover for a course. Well, once you get done showing them how to do it, the book cover is going to exist, so you have to delete it before you can go back and show them how to create it again. Anyway, I'm just pointing out. Make sure you clean up so you don't surprise yourself with some of these artifacts of the fact that you're doing the process of second or third time by the time you're recording it , and sometimes you save snapshots of what you're doing along the way so that you can fast forward to known good points and what you're demonstrating For instance, if you have a lengthy cleanup process, which involves repeating the same steps over and over again, you might want to Snoehvit snapshots that you can open a ah file that already has what you're going to demonstrate applied to it so they don't have to sit there for an hour and watch you do something tedious. Advice on your presentation style demonstrate enthusiasm for the topic that you're teaching . It's okay, toe over articulator overemphasize things. If you feel just a little bit goofy in your presentation, you're probably hitting it just right. Don't get too goofy, but try toe. Punch it up. Don't just talk in a monotone. Have inflections to your voice. Have ups and downs? Have I points and low points. Speak at a steady pace is if you were explaining something to a friend. I love that aspect of doing presentations. It feels like you're just sitting there with a long friend, and you're just explaining how things are working. Don't just read the bullet items, which was what I just did. Pair of phrase them in, elaborate on them. Find other talking points that you can apply to the particular bullet item it gets boring hearing somebody or watching them read bullet items over and over again. I mean, you may as well not have a lecturer. I can read bullet items without somebody reading them to me. Okay, Recording In post production, I lean heavily on post production during the recordings. That's because I make a lot of mistakes. And if I make a mistake and sometimes many in a row, I just pause and start again until I get it right. Then I keep on going until I make my next mistake and so on. Sometimes I even press the back arrow on the keyboard to back up several talking points during a Power Point presentation so that I can do them again. This can all be done, and you can work it all out in postproduction. I love the fact that post production works and that this isn't live. All of this, including throat clearing and the cat disturbing me. Yes, I'm I'm a cat owner or the cat owns me. So sometimes there are interruptions during recording. They're all removed during postproduction. Now, another post production consideration occurs when you're recording both slides and screen casts for a lecture in that case, you. How do you glue things together? And I want to talk about that next. Gluing things together when switching from presentation slides to screen casts and a screen cast demonstration and back and forth. You have two options. Really, you can stop recording and produce multiple takes, or you can just keep on going and remove the unwanted material in post production. I prefer the latter. I prefer to just keep on going and remove the unwanted stuff in post production. In both instances, it's easy to splice scenes together and post production. We've gone through and done a lot of Camp Tasia video editor lessons. So you know this is the fact. And just go back to those and and watch them to see how postproduction works were also going to do a little postproduction lecture. After this, you can even add transition effects. If the cuts seems too abrupt, you can do that in post production, so post production is great. Fix all evils and post production. And speaking of post production, I'm going to see you again in the next lecture, where we're going to do post production on the slides I just recorded 4. Post-production Video: Hi. Here I am in post production, and I'm showing you the result of having done some editing already. I told you how, you know, take a snapshot at ah, get rid of the boring part. I took out a lot of my mistakes, but you can see the evidence of them here. If you can see down here on the ah task bar the timeline. Rather, you'll see that there are a lot of rips in the recording. Here's the first recording that I did. Now what I did was actually I was going to move directly from the first set of slides, which was just the first couple slides into recording the editor session and then just keep on recording and go back to the slides. But I completely forgot in my excitement for the topic and going through the slides. I just walked right over my opportunity to do that. So I recorded all the slides and then I recorded the editor session separately. Now, unfortunately, I didn't really cleanly break it. That slide where I wanted to insert this so the inserting was kind of a challenge, and I used a transition to kind of clean that up. So let's look at a little these editing things here. The first is noticed the number of errors here. There's ah, probably I'm showing the entire timeline. It's, Ah, 13 minutes and 49 seconds long, and you can see that there must be, 0 20 or 30 edits here that I've made to the entire thing, chopping out ums Or, um, there's another one. I've got to get chopping those out and, you know, just doing cleanup stuff. And then I have these transitions here between the slides and the text file that I'm editing and we can actually watch the transition here occur, and I think we can even here maybe, and that was the transition from one to the other. And I just put that in there by going to transitions. I used a cube rotate, and I dragged it, and I dropped it right down where I wanted the transition and it occurred. So that was simple to do. Displaced thes two scenes together, and then I just did us another slice. Another cube rotate at the end, going back into my slides, so that was pretty much it. It's just a little bit of clean up and a couple transitions, including some stuff together. And I've got a lecture. And now I've got a second lecture on how I made the first lecture, so I can't think of what more to say. I've got the whole course here to show you how to, ah, work the editor. So you kind of seen the entire process Now of how I create a lecture to create this. I laid it out in Power point cause it was primarily a power point presentation. Or at least I laid out the power point parts and I made ah separate slide with a title for each major topic I wanted to address. And then I made bullet items for each talking point on that topic. And then I just recorded straight through it, brought into post production, glued some things together, did a little screen cast session to show you the text editor part of things and pulled it all together. And now I'm recording in Can't Asia showing you and talking about how it was all done. Hopefully, this helps toe for you to understand how you really pull an entire lecture together. And then it's all Swiss cheesing. It's all part of a big outline for the entire course. You move onto the next lecture and you do it all over again. If you have 40 lectures in your course, then you're gonna be doing it 40 times. And I've got 13 courses out there now, So I think I've done this somewhere around 400 times. You It gets to be old hat after a while, so good luck. And I hope that this works out well for you and that you, Demian course creation becomes something you want to spend time doing. 5. Do Voice Over for an Existing Video: Hello, everyone. I'm recording this lecture in response to a user question in its response to a student question. Who says that they would like to record new audio over an existing video presentation. So your video presentation, I'm assuming we'll have audio on it. You don't want to replace the audio with new audio, and you can do that within the Camp Tasia studio recorder or rather, the editor. So what we'll do first is we will open an existing project. Let's go ahead and will do the promo video for this for a course that I'm working on. And we'll bring in the promo here, and it has all of this audio already on it. Now we're going to use voice narration. If you don't see the option here on your menu, it's gonna be under more. So pull up more and go down to voice narration. And what it has is that it has the ability to record start recording your voice over an existing recording. But before we do that, what we want to do is play the recording and record our voice, but we don't want the existing voice recording to be in there, so Let's go ahead and will select this entire track. And then we'll go to audio and we'll say, Give me silence and it takes out all of the audio for that track. Now we can play the track and we can just see the video and we won't be disturbed by the audio. Now let's go back again to voice narration on The other thing that we needed to Dio is by default. I have two microphones on here. You may not have to do this. I got one for a webcam and one for my yeti. As you can see by the voice reacting here, my yeti is now working. But to get it working, I had to go into audio set up wizard Pick that I was getting this from a microphone and choose the microphone that I wanted to use. So I had to switch from my Webcam microphone to my yeti microphone to get the right microphone going. I don't know if you have to do that or not. Then you do next, and it does. I've already set the volume, so I'm going to go ahead and finish, and we're just gonna record with this So here's the way that it works. You put your play head at the very beginning of the video, and then you say, start recording and the play head moves forward, and it's recording my voice now. So I just wait for the tracks and I say hello. How are you? More importantly, how are your you Demi Sales? Not so good, huh? Have you considered? And when I'm done recording, I just hit. Stop recording. Okay, Now, at this point, it's gonna ask me, where do I want to save my voice recording that I just made? It's gonna save it as a wave file. So I'm gonna go ahead and call it promo. I'm gonna go ahead and call it promo. It will save. It is a way file already have one. So, yes, I want to replace it, the way files now replaced. And if we go and look at the clip in will see that my promo wave has been included. And it's also included a diss track, too. Now, when I play this recording, we should hear my voice. Believe it or not, this is my voice being re recorded. I had toe overdub because I forgot to say if system sounds so I wasn't hearing my recording . So here I am, overdubbing again, so it could be done multiple times, and that's it. So to voice over a an existing recording is very simple. You just bring it in, select the track, use audio and silence to get rid of the existing audio that you've got going. Then set your play head to the beginning and go to narration. Where is it? Voice narration. Set up your microphone. Make sure you got the mic right. Mike's that you've got your voice showing up here. Put the play head at the beginning, or wherever you want to do your recording actually and say Start recording it will create a new way file. It will bring it in as ah, imported media general. Position it on a track line for you and then you just edit it like any other video recording. So that's the answer to that lecture. That's how to voice over an existing video. I'll see in the next lecture
