Importing audio into Peek?

Hello all,

I am using Peek for the first time. In general, I understand it and it seems very easy to use. However, I have some questions regarding the audio.

* Is it possible to import audio into the Peek file? I know I can record my own voice while the video is being made (from Studio 360 in my case) but I want to add prerecorded audio by our narrator into the video file. How is this possible?
* Similarly, I know I can record/import the audio into the Studio 360 file but then it gets erased when I convert it to a video using Peek. Is there any way to avoid this happening?
* Finally, in a regular presentation, I record/import the audio and then sync the animations to it. How are the animations synced in Peek? Do they have to be created in Studio and then hope that the timing matches the Peek audio?

Thanks for your input,

Hi Nina!

It sounds like your end goal is to add pre-recorded audio to a Peek video, is that right? 

If so, try this!

  1. Open Articulate Review, and find the Peek video you want to add audio to. 
  2. Click the three dots (...) icon, and select Download. A mp4 file will download to your computer.
  3. Open Replay 360.
  4. Add the Peek MP4 file to the Replay project. 
  5. Add the pre-recorded audio to the Replay project. 
  6. Publish the Replay project to a MP4 file.
  7. Go back to Articulate Review, and click the Upload Video link.
  8. Select the MP4 video you just created in Replay, and click Upload.  

And there you have it! Now you have combined a Peek video with a pre-recorded audio file. Let me know if that's what you had in mind!

Hi Nina,

I'm happy to hear you're using Peek - it's one of my favorite tools because it's so easy to use and without a lot of fuss! With all the tools in Articulate 360 there is a lot to choose from, not to worry we're here to help! 

It's designed to allow you to capture things on your screen and audio at the same time. I use it often for quick tutorials or how to videos to share here in the E-Learning Heroes community.

If you're looking to have separate audio and video tracks, take a look at using Replay (also a part of the Articulate 360 suite of tools). You'll have a lot more options there for adding media, editing, and then you can publish to an MP4 for use in any of your other courses. 

Hope that helps, and let me know if you have any other questions.
