Also, here is a completed tutorial creating a Camtasia Video using PresenterMedia Content (31 minutes long)
Of course, we had tons of excellent questions as well, we didn’t forget about anyone! Here are the questions and our answers from Tuesday and Wednesday’s Webinar:
I tried to record my screen and then add clipart, my text was fine when I recorded the screen, but when I edited it in Camtasia the words were so small I couldn’t read it. How do I fix it to apply the clipart?
When you record a screen and then upload it to Camtasia, make sure you tell the project to be the Recording Dimensions or something relatively large if you want to be able to see the text images. If you want to add clipart separately, you can do so by using Import Media.
How do you save a PPT presentation as a Windows Media File in PowerPoint 2007?
Unfortunately there’s not a way to simply “Save as WMV” in PowerPoint 2007 (great reason to upgrade to 2010 or 2013 or purchase Camtasia though!) You can also use freebie screen capture softwares, but beware many are limited as far as the length , dimensions and file type that it can save as.
Can you post the URL for “Studio Cutz” audio library?
You can still purchase Studio Cutz from sounddogs.com if you purchase all the CDs, but the music is not available to download online. For online options, remember to search “Royalty Free Music” and make sure you abide by all rules stated regarding using any artist’s music.
Have you had the chance to use our Tablet Toolkit yet? If not, take a look, and view our basic tutorial on using this engaging template. Below, you’ll see our Advanced tutorial of this template, demonstrating how to change it from being strictly informational, to more of a quiz style, highlighting a correct answer, fading out the incorrect answer, and additional details regarding keeping track of which item is on which slide.
Did you miss this month’s webinar? Never fear, you can view the highlights here!
Each month we host a webinar which is unique in its approach. Rather than simply being another tutorial (which we also create every month), our webinar focuses on audience input in a live digital environment. We do have a few tips we are planning on discussing during the webinar, but the program is driven by questions from our audience. Questions range in complexity to something as simple as how to use our add-in all the way to how to insert content into various programs or combine elements of PowerPoint.
If you’d like to register for our webinar next month, we will be having two dates and times available, simply click whichever date and time works best for you below:
September 17th, 1:00 – 1:30 PM CST
September 18th, 9:00-9:30 AM CST
Please leave your questions in the comments field below, we’d love to answer any questions you may have in our webinar!
This blog is managed by the creative artists and owners of PresenterMedia. We'll show you how our templates work and give you reviews of new PowerPoint features and applications. We'll also share our PowerPoint knowledge through tutorials and examples.
