  • Updated 3 weeks ago
I am using Camtasia 8- My screen recording is approx 30 minutes long.  I have done in multiple sections- but recorded video and audio together- when i play it back the audio jumps as if the narrator is 'rapping' but this does not happen in same place all the time.  How do i know what ' blips' to fix?  as well, i am in the middle of editing- i have added all sections on timeline- and i find the more i edit - add transitions- call outs etc- it appears i get more ' blips' am i degrading the screen recording the more editing i am doing? Is there someway to keep the integrity of the original recordings but still edit?

Have you separated the audio and video into separate tracks? If not, when you edit the video, you're also editing the audio. If you separate them, you can lock the audio while you edit the video  and vice-versa.

I have separated now..should I just clip again, will this not alter the audio and not be aligned?
Is this the best forum or is there an email address I might be able to contact you?

try "simplifying" the project; produce to MP4 or AVI; this will "burn in" all you edits; use that production to start a new project, then continue editing

that usually improves things substantially

you'll want to add any interactive content [markers, captions, hotspots, quizzes] at the very end

What I do is  edit the audio and video separately and reposition them as necessary. What you want to avoid is inadvertently clipping out sections of audio when you're editing the video. 

I typically split the audio into short sections and edit by deleting sections and/or dragging the edges of the sections. That way, it has no effect on the video track, even if it's not locked.

You can move multiple sections by highlighting them and dragging, or grouping them and dragging.

You can also group audio and video sections once you've done the necessary editing and positioning.

If you're new to Camtasia, it takes a bit of time to get used to the steps require during editing and develop a workflow that works for you. Give it time and it will become second nature.

I would like to keep this conversation on this forum, so others may benefit from it.

that typically enhances things considerably 
you'll need to include any intelligent substance [markers, subtitles, hotspots, quizzes] at the plain end

You can always go back to the original project and edit as much as you like. I always create a new project version before or after any major editing, so I have a history to go back to if necessary. It's a simple matter of using Save As and including "v1", "v2", etc. in the project name. Once you make your edits, you can produce the video again. If you've changed the project version as above, the new production will not overwrite the existing one. Just be aware that if you don't do this, it will overwrite your existing project.

Hi there,
do you know if there is anywhere I can purchase or order online an actual book version of a user manual?  Not an Ebook, but an actual book?  I had one for an earlier version, but I would like to have one for this version, I am using Studio 8
