Editing a Video


I used my cell phone to record the footage (note to self make sure it is landscape next time) and imported these to Camtasia.

After adding the 2 videos, I split them and deleted sections that I did not want and added a title video of a title at the beginning and fades to link the sections.

Editing a video is relatively easy once you have had a play- it is just annoying that I had my phone the wrong way as portrait does not work well.

  1. Hi Sarah, I did not know where to access your first ‘live action’ video..?
    Your Screencast was very effective and it was clear what you want the viewed to know after watching. You spoke clearly and the timing was good. The ‘Edited’ video was also done well. The transitions were smooth and it did not take away from the quality or experience in watching it.
