We know that everyone has their own style of video creation because we’ve already seen your different audio & visual setups. But for this discussion, we’d love to know which software you are using to pull it all together?
Which editing software do you use and why do you use it?
I've been using iMovie since the start, but only because it came with my Mac! I've been forcing myself to figure out how to make it work (mainly since I don't want to buy a camtasia or finalcut). So far I've only run into a single limitation - it only allows 2 layers of video.
This means I can do a green screen, but NOT overlay a graphic... OR I can overlay a single graphic, but not a second one.
So far it's only been a mild annoyance, but given it's a free product I'm ok with that...
I utilize a combination of software tools to bring my video content together. Employ Clipchamp for screen and audio recording, Audacity for audio enhancements, MS Word for creating comprehensive course outlines, and MS PowerPoint for designing visually appealing presentations.
Clipchamp serves as an excellent solution for capturing both my screen activities and accompanying audio. If require to ensure optimal audio quality, I rely on Audacity, a widely-used open-source audio editing software.
MS Word acts as my go-to word-processing software for creating detailed course outlines. Its versatile formatting options enable me to organize and structure my content effectively, ensuring clarity and coherence in my teaching materials.
Lastly, I leverage the power of MS PowerPoint to craft captivating visual presentations. With its abundant features, including slide transitions, animations, and multimedia embedding.
Camtasia. HOWEVER.....not very happy with it. In terms of effects (for instance on screen words), it is incredibly limited. So, we are looking for something better. But what we currently have made, is made with Camtasia.
