    Camtasia Basics

    Using Camtasia

    Before Opening Camtasia

    Make sure you have your headphones with microphone connected to the computer, as well as an external hard drive.

    To Open Camtasia

    Go to My Computer/Local Disk (C)/ProgramFiles/TechSmith/Camtasia Studio 5 and click on the green Camtasia Studio icon.

    Immediately save your project file to a folder with your full name on it on the external hard drive. Inside the folder, create three subfolders named "Clips" (clips you record will go here), "Assets" (any other video you record will go here), and "Outputs" (your final quicktime file(s) will go here).

    To Record a PowerPoint Presentation

    Nb: this is different than what I presented in the lab; follow closely.

    Open your PowerPoint presentation file.

    Click on "Slide Show" in the menu above, and click on "Set Up Show." In the dialogue box under Show Type, click "Browsed by an Individual." Hit "Okay."

    Click on "Slide Show" in the menu above and click on "View Show" and then make window smaller (about half the size of the screen).

    Go to Camtasia and click "Make a recording." If you are recording audio with the presentation, make sure the microphone box is checked and that the computer is recognizing your voice. If you are recording the narration separately, uncheck this box.

    Click "Select are to record." Click a frame in the PowerPoint Slide Show window around your frame.

    Click "Record to start recording. Click on the PowerPoint window to make sure the window is active, and as you click you should advance through the presentation. When you are done, hit "Stop."

    Preview your clip to determine whether to save or delete it.

    Save your file with a new file name.

    Record another clip, or return to the Camtasia project file to edit.

    If your animations seem slow, return to the "Camtasia Recorder" window. Click on the "Tools" menu, and then "Options." Click the "Capture" tab and select "disable display acceleration." Try recording again.


    If Recording Narration Separately

    In Camtasia, align all of the video clips you have made in the timeline.

    Position the playhead at the start of the video clip that you want to synchronize the narration to.

    Click on the link "Voice narration."

    Check the following boxes: record to audio 2, "until end of timeline," and "Auto-extend last video frame." Test the audio to make sure that Camtasia is recognizing the microphone and your voice, and adjust the volume to make sure that the audio levels are not becoming red. Click "Start Recording."

    When you are finished, stop recording. You should see a new audio track appear on the timeline. If you want to make another recording, continue. When you are finished recording, click "Finished."

    You should be able to move your audio track and align it with some video.

    Editing Basics

    To split tracks, place the single playhead in the timeline and click on the splice icon in the menu just about the time.

    To delete a segment a clip, position the double playhead around the segment you wish to delete and click the scissors icon in the menu just above the timeline.

    To extend a video frame, position the single play had in the timeline on the frame that you want to extend. Go into the "Edit" menu and, select "Extend frame." You will be asked to choose the duration of the extended frame.

    To adjust to the audio in any clip, select the clip and click on the increase volume or decrease volume icon and a in the menu just above the timeline.

    Final Output

    Once you have completed editing your presentation and are ready to output, click on the link "produce your video" in the menu at the left.

    A dialog box will open. Choose "Custom."

    Choose "MOV - QuickTime movie." Click "Next."

    Click "Next."

    Click "Preset video sizes" and select 640 x 480. Click "Next."

    Click "Next."

    Click "Next."

    Rename the file and select where you will be saving it to (i.e. your file on the external hard drive." Click "Finish."

    The computer will take a while to render your final file. Do not be alarmed.

    Preview your final file.

    Burn your final file to 2 CDs (one for Prof. Haw, and one as a safety). Preview your file on another computer before turning it in.

    Reminders

    Save frequently.

    If you have recorded your video and audio simultaneously, those tracks will be locked in Camtasia.

    "Produce" means export. Don't select this option until you are finished with your timeline and ready to output your file as a movie.

    To record web video with sound, utilize the website www.zamzar.com or ask a student worker to help you rewire the audio.

    Remember to include a final slide with your bibliography and listing the sources (name of site + full url) for any images.
