Having spent hours... and hours putting together my first Scribe, I
recorded the audio that I wanted to combine with a backing track in
Videoscribe. My heart sank. I wasn't aware just how awkward the editing
part of this is. I know the latest version (2.3) is supposed to have an
improved timeline, but I can see any difference.
Here are some things that would make VS so amazingly better:
I love VideoScribe. But it just seems like it falls short of glory it could (should?) otherwise have if you integrated some basic audio/slide editing functions into the one package rather than the gymnastics that is required for anything half complicated.
The silver lining is that this difficulty actually brought about a creative idea that'll take my Scribes in a different direction - necessity is the moth of invention, and all that. :)
Hi Ryan. Please correct me if I'm mistaken. It sounds like you did your scribe before you did your recording. If so, that makes it more difficult. Always do your recording first, then make your scribe fit the recording.
When I do my voiceover, I have to do many "takes" because I make mistakes. However, once it's perfect, I upload it to audacity and simply snip out what I don't want. But it's usually near perfect, so I don't end up having to edit it.
I use a professional mic from Amazon and use the record button from off my computer and talk away. It takes a lot of rehearsals before I get it perfect, but I'd rather do that than have to do a lot of editing.
I hope that helps.
