Webinar Recordings from PresenterMedia Advanced! October 15 & 16

October 17th, 2013

Firstly, thank you all so much who were able to make it to this month’s webinar!  We had some great questions.  Below are the links to the recordings from the webinars:

October 15, 2013 1:00 PM CST

October 16, 2013 9:00 AM CST

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.

Learn to use PresenterMedia with Camtasia!

October 4th, 2013

This month’s webinar we are learning how to use the popular Techsmith program Camtasia Studio.  Not familiar with Camtasia?  Essentially, it is a robust video editing software which allows you, the user, to combine various media elements, zoom in, zoom out, add pop outs, transitions and more in an intuitive user interface, and then conveniently publish to a video file, or upload automatically to Screencast.com or YouTube (your choice).

October 2nd, 2013

Are you a “YouTuber”?  Did you know that you can create fantastic videos and then host them to the site, using our video backgrounds and images, and YOUR creativity and video editing software?  Traditionally, it has always been a problem finding adequate background music to go along with creative visual effects.  No longer!  YouTube launched their audio library and I must say, it’s a fun little library to listen to and consider for video backgrounds at least.  To access the YouTube Audio library, simply go to youtube.com/audiolibrary.  Check it out and let us know what you think!
