The Making of "Product Demo - Mobile Beacon" Video

Tech Soup Blog

Digital Storytelling is in the air around TechSoup these days, and thanks to a grant from Symantec we have been able to experiment and create some new videos. We aimed to make this video informative, concise, and personable. While not every nonprofit needs to invest the resources to make scripted videos, we wanted to try the new format to better serve our audience, particularly the different learners coming to our site.

Lack of technical skills or software tools in cutting, splicing, fading the audio and weaving it with the video track. Here I found phosphor by Francesco Stablum and decided to incorporate it into the video I created to practice my music skills. Since I'm mostly creating instructional video, I have to ask myself - how much does this enhance the learning or ability to retain? They also suggested picking the music first if making a music video.

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

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

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.

Using Web Conferencing Software To Create A Screencast

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. Click To Play.

Converting GoToMeeting recording to something you can actually use

You can't post the file to any web service or play it back on a Mac.unless you specifically go to in to preferences before the recording begins and toggle a little button which converts the final file into a more standard video file. Playback was audio-only. Other folks suggested replaying the file through Camtasia , but I wasn't going to buy a $300 piece of software for this. So on to the second application, Any Video Converter.

The timing errors make it more of a comedy than an instructional video, but you have to start somewhere. 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.)
