NTEN and SalesForce Screencast: Learnings About the Interview/Documentary Approach

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Now comes the reflection on the process, the craft of screencasting. One thing I learned just two weeks ago from a phone call to the TechSmith tech support guy is that the.wmv files from Ready/Talk can be run through microsoft media encoder - so they could be pulled into Camtasia and edited. However, the idea of editing a long file in Camtasia does not sound appealing to me.). So that left me with a few hours of video and audio to edit and that's too much to do in Camtasia.

As a result, I'm reflecting on my comfort level. But wait a minute, what if I could create a screencast out of a screensharing session or using a web conference system like Ready/Talk that offers video/audio recording? Does he edit in Camtasia? So, I just plunged in with Ready/Talk and made a quick video/audio capture of me talking to myself while looking at my screen. Ready/Talk outputs the file into.swf format which can't be brought into Camtasia for editing.

Learning Journal: Experimenting With Adding Music to Web Videos

Lack of technical skills or software tools in cutting, splicing, fading the audio and weaving it with the video track. Reflection: MovieMaker is limited or perhaps it is my technical skill. You can't "silence" the audio in the video by clip or sections of the story board. Reflection: This time I experimented with using QuickTime Pro as the audio editor and video editor. The next experiment will be to do a music video and turn the video audio off.

Some immediate reflections on screencasting while it is fresh in my head. Unfortunately, the software was a little too much of a pig for my middle-aged computer, so there are some places where the over hiccups (if I'm not saying um) and it goes out of synch with the movie (more an editing problem on my part as you can edit the storyboard with the audio and there places where I deleted the audio and re-recorded it and it didn't synch right.)
