Learning How To Edit Your Videos With Camtasia Studios Can Be Very Lucrative For Your Business
1) Editing Videos with Camtasia Studios™
It makes it so much easier to edit videos using Camtasia Studios
You can download videos right onto your computer
Put them into your editing bin.
From there it is as easy as dragging and dropping
Clips you want to use
- You can add transitions(I owe you a video on that the video was getting too long)
- Music and audio narration
- You can do screen recordings from your computer screen(great for learning doing teaching videos)
- Presentations where the person is speaking the words you are reading on the screen? They are done with Camtasia Studios
- Windows in a screen recording, where the person speaking is seen? That was Camtasia Studios too.
Call out boxes and all sorts of shapes, as well as colors are all possible with Camtasia Studios, and you can write on them too.
Make each edit 5 seconds long. That is the key to a great video versus an OK video. Our attention span is not much more than 5 seconds long. I have worked with some great video people and they like 5 second edits. Test it, and see what kind of results you get as far as conversions go. You may consider polling your audience to see what they like as well.
2) Sharing Videos With Camtasia Studio
Camtasia Studio Makes it so much easier to share videos in the proper format. It is as easy as using a toggle button and scrolling down to the format you want to share it too. HD and MP4 is my preferred format for video, as the crisp, clean video, is what you end up with as a finished produced video:
1) First You Take The Video
2) Then You Download The Video To Your Computer
3) Then you upload the Video file to Camtasia.
4) Edit it in Camtasia by dragging it into the editing screen
5) Share it to your desired destination with Camtasia after you produce it.
It really is an all in one software for producing professional videos(or at least that look similar to professional videos)
YouTube is a breeze if you like sharing your Videos there.
I also keep a file on my computer, of the finished product, just in case my channel gets shut down.
We also have out Empower Network Media Server that you can save your videos on
(I recommend that)
This way, your videos, that are tied to your offers, will never get shut down by “a hater.” That is someone who takes pleasure at shutting down YouTube channels. It happened to me, painful as it was, it was a good lesson, I will share with you sometime at an event. Events are great places for video too! In fact the video above, those clips were taken in Miami as I was going to an event.
You could also get your own server, but that is a post for another time. This would definitely be an advanced topic.
If a 53-year old, tech-challenged, person can figure out how to produce and share over 350 videos you can figure it out too. My first YouTube channel got shut down, as I mentioned above, but that did not stop me. I started another one and another.
Success leaves clues…Jon Penbernathy started one for each video he did on the way to the leaderboards.
You see working online with video and learning how to edit your videos with Camtasia Studio is not hard.
It just takes practice and not being afraid, to not make it perfect every time. Produce one video a day and you will get good at it after about 50 videos or sooner, or later, depending on Your skill and ability to learn new things.
You may need to fail forward, like I do, test some things out, see if you like them, and measure the results. Are you making money with your videos? Then they are working!
That is the measure. Views are nice, but remember you are making these videos to make money, right? Or, perhaps this is a personal hobby then that is fine too.
That will come with time.
Mine still are not perfect, but each one gets me closer and closer to where I want them to be. The best part I love doing them. It is my passion! Find your passion and you will never work another day in your life. Truer words were never spoken.
Remember, they do not have to be perfect. People like real people, just be yourself. The rest, the polished look will come with time. Enjoy the creative process. Make your videos fun and people will like that!
I have made an infinitesimal amount of mistakes while on my journey to editing videos with Camtasia. You are going to make mistakes. Learn from each one, and get better.
Google anything you do not understand, or YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia it. Wistia has a wonderful tutorial on video production and lighting.
TechSmith™ also has some great tutorials on Camtasia Studio™ and Snagit™
