1. Editing Powerpoint Videos - Introduction: so welcome back. Once again I hope you enjoyed creating these three projects with me. And so now let's get into the technical stuff off. How you actually do the videos. So I explained you for now, mainly the creative part. How do you do Beautiful designs and animations inside power point to illustrate the point off your A video content, right? And then I explained you how to export this video by registering the timings and simply clicking on export video. But of course, this is not over because you probably a soundtrack are you have, ah, voiceover that you want to add to this video. So how exactly do you combine both this audio and the video track? And how do you I did them together. So probably a lot of you already know how to do this. But if you don't in this section, I will explain you how 2. Creating the audio file of the voice over script: so the way I do it personally, when I do fully animated videos, I usually record my full script first and I write it. So I script everything. Let me show you. For example, let's say that I want to record the audio for this video about the Zappos founders that we did in the first section. So here's my script. I will record us with the audio software called Audacity. It's a free one. So if you don't know it going Google type audacity and go on the website audacity and you just download this software, it's very basic, very easy. And so then you open it up. I suppose you have your good microphone and stuff and then you simply click on record and it will start recording everything. What I'm saying like I just did right now record and it will start recording everything what I'm saying like I just did right now. All right, so depending on the length off your video off course, this can be a very long audio track, and obviously you will do mistakes in your speech. You cannot always record perfectly, And so what I do, I always clean up my audio tracks first. So let me show you an example. So I recorded this and I made mistakes on purpose. So here it is. Let's listen. In order to validate their startup idea, Zappos founders went to look Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. OK, so let's say that this is a mistake here. Okay? In order to play the file, you can I directly keep order or hit space like I do in order to validate. So basically, we need to delay this part here. It's very simple. You just select it, okay? And you press delayed button. Here you go. In order to validate their startup idea, Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. They upload that that they uploaded them on the basic website. All right, so here's another mistake. And take this part, I take it out. Pictures. They uploaded them on the basic website and put them on sale. Once people started to order, they went back. Teoh the vendors. Well, obviously this was done on purpose, but it also happens naturally very often. And these are parts of the things that you have to dilate they don't sound good in your videos. So you identify this are, ah, right. And you try to dilate it as clearly as possible. They went back to the vendors, both the items and shipped them the opposed to their clients. And the rest is history. All right, As you can see now, at least it's clean. So you have to correct the mistakes, the moments where you re start, a sentence or award and all the annoying sounds like, ah, and things like this. And also, if sometimes you made too long spaces between some words. I also delayed them, for example here and ship them the opposed. I think this is a too long daily, so just take it out and ship them the opposed to their clients and the rest is history. And that's that we have a clean audio track. Okay. However, this is not over. You also need to compress the audio. Basically, this is a technical term. What it allows to do is it allows to make a good sound for the audio to expand all the frequencies off your recorded sound. It is very important if you don't do this, it will not sound good and the volume will be very low on your videos. So the way you do it, you select all this audio track. But to do it, you just click control A here it's electric and then you go to effects. Sorry. Mind computers again in French, but its effect and compressor. And obviously you can just leave how It was preset before and you click OK, depending on the length of your audiophile, it will can take more or less time. So let me show you the difference. Now it's compressed. In order to validate their startup idea, Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took. Now I go back to show you highlights without compressing. In order to validate their start up idea, Zappos founders went to look. You might not hear the difference with this microphone, but if you have headphones, you will definitely hear the difference. So anyway, once you have your clean track, so you first you clean it up and then you compress it. Then you have to export it as an audiophile cyclic file export audio, and you can leave it in w A v file. Okay, don't put it in MP three file. You really have to keep this file here because this is the one that doesn't compress anything. And so then you save this file into the directory folder where you will create the rest of your video, and I usually lame it like this. Ready? Okay, click. OK, and that's it. We have a good audio file. 3. Synchronizing powerpoint animations and transitions with the audio script: So now that you have a clean audio file, you need to record the right timings in your Power Point presentation in order to export a video that is synchronized to the rodeo. However, as you will see, it can actually become quite complicated to do it, especially if you have long videos with many animations. Because there's no way that even yourself, you remember when to click for the different transitions and animations that you created, so you have to try to do it as correct, less possible. But the point of doing that is just to save your time later, because anyways, you can end it all of this in a video editing software, which I will show you later. But if you manage to record your timings precisely well, we will just have less work to do afterwards. So this is how I do it. I open power point and I go here on slideshow, and now we need to do something very weird. So you go on the folder where you have your audiophile, you click on it and then you quickly go back to power point in order. It is a day they're startup idea Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. They uploaded them on the basic website and put them on sale. Once people started to order, they went back to the vendors, both the items and ship them the opposed to their clients. And the rest is history. All right. As you can see, I opened to the audiophile, and then I started to rehearse the timings on the Power point as these audiophile waas playing What you can also do is play this audio file on the different device, or even better, if you have two screens, you can put the file on the left and then do the transitions and clicking the animations on the right. And probably as you noticed already, I myself was mistaken. I was late in clicking on the timings. I did this on purpose because I need to show you how to do the video editing afterwards. But of course, if you restart one or two times, you can probably be very precise, very synchronized between the audio and the video. But anyways, that's how I do it. That's how I record the timings between all the animations and the transitions off my slides. So I opened up the audio file. I click on rehearse, and as the audio file explain, I'm clicking on my right arrow key on the keyboard to advance the animations so they are synchronized with what I'm saying in the audio. All right, So once you did this while you know the drill, you go here, file export, create the video. You keep this resolution here in new click, create video, and you call it like I don't know people TV deal, whatever safe. And as you can see, this is the Progress bar as the time it takes for your video to be a generated. And obviously, if you have a very big power point file because what we did here is actually very short, very small, So usually the videos are much bigger than this. Well, it will take that much longer in order to generate this video. And what you can also do is that you can separate your PowerPoint file in the smaller files , right? That's also possible. So now that you have your video and your audio, now you need to edit it in the final video editing software 4. Importing files into a Video Editing software: So in this video, let me show how you actually edit the final video inside a video editing software. So when it comes to video editing software, here's the thing. In order to do good stuff, you need to pay right. There are free Softwares out there, But honestly, I don't even know which one to advise to you, because I tried them and they're not good. So if you want to do good quality well, you will have to pay for a video editing software. That's as simple as that. However, there are many Softwares which allow you to download them to try them out, and to see what she can do is them. So let's do this. A literally picked a random software, so I typed the best free video editing software. I went here and I saw this one light works, so I went on their website and I downloaded it. So let's launch it and let's see. So I just did this project. It's literally the first time ever I used this software, and there are many things I didn't know. But what I will show you is that it's mostly always standard, so once you know how to master. Want video editing software? You will be able to quickly a just and use any other video editing software. So you should goes like this. You create a new project, you get the name. Let's say those apples. Video frame rate put 30. Okay, Create. So then you have to import the video. The Power Point video file and the audio file that we created previously insight this software. So usually you have irregular file browser like this. So you select the folder where you have everything all right. And so then you have these two files. This is my audio file. This is my video file. And then you import them. You click twice. See? Imported. Important. Now probably. They must be here in project contents. All right, there, here in project contents. 5. Editing and arranging elements on the video-audio timeline: now, as you can see here, there are four tabs on one of them. Is it? So click on edit and you see this timeline. So this timeline is the basis for every video software. All of them work in the same way. So you take a file like this one in you drag it onto the timeline. Actually, here it dragged both files already. So here is probably the bar which allows you to resize Yes, you can resize your view and now you see thinks closer. So let's put this here. And let's plate already to see ah where we are at. Well, probably space if I kids Space is gonna play the video in order to validate their start up idea, Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. All right, so now basically, the Power Point video and the audio file are playing like we register them previously. But as you can see, there's already a first mistake when I say that the Zappos founders went to the shoe store . What we see on the screen is late. There's a delay. Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took some legacy. This should arrive before this. What I'm saying. So in order to do that, we have to accelerate the video and cut the unnecessary parts. Local shoe stores? Yeah. So you see, when you drag like this, the founders, they come here now it stops. And now there is a blank period where nothing happens, And then this line appears here. So basically, we need to cut that moment here that time in the middle in order to bring this animation here closer to the left. So once again, depending on the video software usually click on the timeline object, and then you select cut, and it will make one cut here. But with this video software, you just press the button seat. However, before I press it, I need to de select this track here because it will cut everything so I don't want it toe cut the audio file. Just the video file. So let's press. See? Right as you can see now there is a cut here and now let's make a cut just before the animation off the line starts. So this one Okay, right position here. Now let's make a cut. Okay, So now I just need to delay this part here. So right Click dilate, and it automatically dragged this one closer. So now let's see if it's good or not. Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and to make it it's It's almost there, but it's even faster. So let's repair it. Let's do like this. And now probably I can just drag this part here. I can just drag it back here. I don't know. Let's see. Most founders went to local shoe stores. Yeah, better I d select this. Put this here and drag this until here. Right now, we put it. Zappos Founders went to local shoe stores and okay, it was too long. Founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. They uploaded them All right, So here this moment now it's examples. Founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. However, afterwards, what appears on the screen appears to fast, relatively to what I am saying, Look, they uploaded them on the basic website. So now here we actually have to slow down the time. So what I do is that I find a moment when there is nothing happening on the video and I copy paste this moment enough times in order to cover the gap. So let me show you here. The last picture appeared. So from this moment on, we need to copy the images. So let's make a cut here. Resolve this. Okay, now it's cut. Now, let's make another cut before this line appears. Okay? Okay. So we have. So this moment here is exactly the moment that we need to duplicate several times. So now let's take this timeline here and move it. And here, once again, depending on the video editing software, either you click on that object and you do control, See in control V, and then you can paste it here. But with this video editing software, you hover it, you hold control, and then you drag and it copies. So let's do it several times and see what happens. Just they uploaded them on the basic. Okay, I probably need to compete a few more times. And now let's put this here, floated them on the basic website and put them on sale. Yeah, I think it's good, but maybe too long. So let's deal 81 Oops. They uploaded them on the basic website and put them. That's it. Also, if the last one here doesn't fit perfectly, you can resize it by doing this very easy so you can literally place it at the exact second that you need chairs. They uploaded them on the basic website and put them on sale. Once people started to order, they went back to the vendors, both the items and shipped them the opposed to their clients. And the rest is history. All right, so it's almost there, except that there is still some delay here. We need to make it faster and ship them the opposed to their clients. So you see, there is a delayed when the box appears. Now there is some delay and only then it starts to move. So let's take out this delay as well. So you need to find the exact moment when the box finishes to appear right. I'll make a cut the other moment where it starts to change shape. Okay, here, cut and take out this part dilate. Now let's see all the items and ship them the opposed to their clients and the rest is history. And we could do exactly the same for the gap between this moment here and ah, this moment here. So, as you understand, this is how you edit the final video. And this is why I also told you that when you record the transitions and the timing's off your power point, you should try to be as precise as possible. Because if you are precise, it will basically spare you time. You will have to do less cuts like this, less arrangements. So let's see this from the beginning. In order to validate their startup idea, Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. They uploaded them on the basic website and put them on sale. Once people started to order, they went back to the vendors both the items and ship them the opposed to their clients. And the rest is history. That's it basically as simple as that. Off course. Afterwards, you need to take out this end part here with the weird sounds. Also the beginning. You decide when you place it, and finally, the last thing that you can do is at music or add sound effects 6. Adding sound effects: So just to show you let's at some basic sound effects to the pictures when the pictures appear to make a nice photo sound. Okay, So when it comes to sound effects, there are two ways to get them. Either you get them for free or you paid for them, right? It really depends on the license. What you find on the Internet off course for very common sounds, you'll probably find a lot off free files out there. And if you want something more complex, well, you probably have to pay for them, but I think that for a camera sound, we can find something for free. So either you go on Google and you type free camera sound effect, and you find a website which proposes many sound effects or you go on YouTube because actually, you can find a lot of this things on YouTube. And, um, let's see, for example, here, camera sound effect free. Okay. Okay. This sounds like a good sound. However, he really doesn't say how to get it. You are free to Akopian were distributed material. Okay, so, basically, you can take this sound, but you're supposed to give credit to the order provide the link, etcetera. Some sounds are completely free. But this is another story. I already explained to you and I will talk about this later as well. Everything concerning license sets and stuff like this. However, he doesn't say where to download it, but it's not a big deal because you can actually download anything you want from YouTube. We just copy this link and you go to any YouTube downloader or there's one thing called clip converter. I don't know if it still works. Okay, you put your l before file here, continue. And since we want only the sound, just click on MP three here and se start. And now you can download the audio off this video, and you can also download the whole video if you want. So basically, there are many YouTube downloaders on the Internet. You can You can literally download any video from YouTube this way. So, of course, don't steal stuff on the use it if you pay for it, or if you use a license and you give credit to the order. So let's say you downloaded this sound. Now you need to import that here as well. So you go here on local files, you find that audiophile here. Clean camera looks exactly. Click twice important. Okay, Project components. And now it's here. So now you drag this and you insert it on the different audio track. This is a different audio track. And since this sound had several camera sounds, let's find the one that we prefer. So I put this one on mute. Okay, Whatever. Okay, let's take this one. So let's cut just this part because we literally don't need Ah, the rest. So see, see, de late dilate. Now where are our pictures? On the video. They're here. So let's place three times this sound exactly when our pictures appear so literally. Now then, here you remember you cop it like this and then third time here. So it's copy and let's see the effect if we positioned it correctly or not local shoe stores and took some pictures. They uploaded. This looks good. So went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. They uploaded them on the basic website. And so you also then try to see if the video corresponds well to the sound. If you need to adjust it, you put it slightly before, slightly after etcetera, and you can play with sound effects like this off course. Don't abuse it. Onley do sound effects when it's relevant, because it can also become very knowing really quick. This here is good because we don't have many sound effects, and the last thing you can do is ah at a music soundtrack. And here again there are free ones. There are free, but you need to credit the order and there are also paid ones. So this is something I will talk about later in this course. But generally speaking, the procedure is the same. Take your audiophile and then you imported here on the new audio track. So let's see this from the beginning. In order to validate their startup idea, Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. They uploaded them on the basic website and put them on sale. Once people started to order, they went back to the vendors both the items and shipped them the opposed to their clients , and the rest is history 7. Exporting the final video & Conclusion: anything. Your video and you arranged everything from the beginning until the end. Well, then you have to export it. And here again, in absolutely every single video software, you have a button somewhere which say's export. And then you choose the format off the video that she wanted to export it in. So in this software, you do a right click on the timeline here. Okay, Not here but here. And you select export. And normally you need to you choose media files, so I will put it higher here. This is a bit weird. Um, export. Yeah. Normally, you have to choose this file here. This format H 264 and before it's a very common format. But as you can see, I just downloaded the software, so I don't have the paid version, and I only have access to limited features. So these are the only two for months that they can export it my video in. So let's choose YouTube. And I'm pretty sure that I also have limitations here, and probably this is the limitation. So yeah, Right now, the common standard for the videos is at least 10. 80 p, especially that our source. File the Power point. Videophile Ease in 10 80 p for men, but I cannot choose it because I have the free version. So this is the limit. Here. You can try it. You can play with it because it's free. But if you want to do quality videos, you will need some software, which allows you to export your files in this format here. So let's click here. When it comes to region, the whole sequence has to be selected. Then it means that it's this whole file that is generated. And now let's give it the name, and then you could start, and now it will start. Generate the whole video. We is the sound combined. So this process can take some time, depending on the software on the power of your computer and, of course, the lengths and the complexity off your video. So for now, I will just accelerate it, all right. It's exported, so let's see the result. Here it is. In order to validate their startup idea, Zappos founders went to local shoe stores and took some pictures. They uploaded them on the basic website and put them on sale once people started to order. They went back to the vendors, both the items and shipped them the opposed to their clients. And the rest is history. All right. As you can see, we have our final video and you can literally do whatever you want with this. Ah, And like I said already, when it comes to video editing software, the principle is always the same. You always have these tracks here, the tracks where you place the images. So the video and the audio tracks also, you can add tracks and then you can place, for example, images here if you forgot something. But if you did everything in your power point file, then you just need one video track and that's it. And for the audio while you have your audio, you might at some sound effects and the music, and that's it. So once you will start work with this kind of software will take you some time to get used to them. But trust me, it goes really fast. And remember, if you have any problem, some things that you don't know how to make them work, well, you just go on Google or even on YouTube and you type, for example, the name of this software, like light works and then this and this problem, and you will probably find a video if someone who is explaining how to solve this problem or how to do this or that action with this software. So you literally can find the answers to all these questions on the Internet. People have already been through all of that. All right, so is that being said, you know, know everything about the video creation with Power point. First of all, the design of the power point itself, then the admissions, the transitions, the audio recording and finally, the video editing to create the final video file. The next section off this course will be about details that I might not have covered during this three projects. So actually, like I said, it's more the theoretical part. So afterwards, it will be more theory. I will just go through every topic, every important topic, like collars, fonds, uh, licenses. All these things also thinks what you should not do, and I will go through them one by one to make sure that you don't forget anything. All right, so see you in the next section.
