About This Class

Introduction

The secret to producing good quality courses in quick time is all about creating systems and standardisation. In this section, I will show you how I set up my presentations, the equipment that I use, the structure of my presentations, walk you through the Screenflow editing process I follow and show you the Keynote process as well.

Key Settings

This lecture covers some of the main principles and settings that I use when creating my Lectures. I show you the outline structure for all my presentations and provide you with an example of my standard presentation template.  I explain the key settings I use for my recording in Screenflow and the settings I use when exporting from Screenflow.

There is also a brief discussion of microphone technique

Equipment

Good equipment is the key to productivity. I have reinvested a significant proportion of my online earnings into making sure I have good, but not necessarily the best or most expensive, equipment to work with

I explain how I combine my iMac with a Logitech Webcam, a Blue Yeti Microphone and Keynote and Screenflow. You can use Powerpoint and Camtasia if you use a PC.

Editing Process

Editing can be a real challenge but if you can master the basics of Screenflow/Camtasia, you should not find it too daunting. When I started it took me forever to edit a video. Now I am much faster and just try to keep things as standardised as possible. One trick, not mentioned in the video, is that it is fine to do several takes of a slide if you are not happy with the result but just keep the recording going and then cut out the stuff you don’t want.

I walk you through how I edited the introduction to this lecture group and hopefully this will help you to get more acquainted with the simple way to do things with Screenflow.

Bonus Lecture: Get the Lecture Creation Sequence Right

This is so easy to get right and so often got wrong.  If you do the latter, you might waste a lot of time re-doing some of your videos.  So sit up, watch this short video and by investing two minutes you might save many more!

Bonus: Direct Your Video Like A Pro

Here I want to share with you a really important technique used by many videographers!  And it is so easy to do and requires no additional software or equipment!  Watch the video and find out!
