Best Practice: Recording Videos

Mar 01, 2013

Hi Everyone

I am fairly new to Articulate and currently creating a presentation where I need to insert a short video I will record using Screenr. I have no video editing software so I'm wondering if it is best to record the video and audio at the same time or record the video without audio and add the audio using record narration (which will allow me to touch up the audio).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Marnie. Welcome to E-Learning Heroes!

I think it really comes down to your personal preference. In the end, though, it really depends on the method that's comfortable for you. Personally, I prefer to record separately, so that I can modify narration after I've made the video. If I need to add some additional details to either recording, I don't have to worry about the functionality of the other. That being said, if it's a short recording, and I don't need to worry about losing access to the visual content I'm recording, I'll do both at the same time. 

Just a suggestion; try it all. Try a little of each method and see which one works best for you. If it gets too complicated to make separate recordings, do one main recording. If one single recording is to limiting for you, record the narration separately. It's a fun process, but only when you're comfortable with it. 

If you have any questions, please just let me know!
