Screencast with Imported Audio vs. No Audio

Hello,

I'm a content developer new to Storyline.  Tasked with creating simple screencasts of e-learning courses,  coupled with audio, I am having difficulty understanding the basics of why Storyline 2 is capturing audio, too.  I've recorded audio in Audacity, and when I listen to it (still in Audacity) while actively doing a screen capture, Storyline 2 is capturing the audio with the video, even though I've selected NO AUDIO on the Record Screen function.  A bubble once popped up stating that Muting the audio in the video will only apply during Preview, not when Publishing.  What gives?

Leslie,
That is correct, I've selected NO AUDIO.
I did just come across information that states I have to disable my speakers on the computer so Storyline 2 won't capture it. How am I supposed to hear myself so I can capture the video correctly?? It seems that I'm going to have to send my .wav files to another computer so I can listen to them while capturing screencasts.

If this is the best SL2 can do, then I will likely use an alternate video capturing software and import these to SL2, as well.

Hi Stacy!

I'm not sure if you were trying to include an image here, but replying to the forums via e-mail does not allow attachments to come through and does post your signature. You are welcome to pop in and edit that if needed.

As to your question, I was just able to duplicate what you are reporting and this is not new to SL2 and occurs with SL1 as well. I will ask our QA Team about this to understand if it's expected and update here if applicable.

Replay may be able to accomplish what you are trying to do though :)
