Pass on your Knowlege!

Post  Nighthawk0973 on Sat Aug 20, 2011 12:54 am

If you know how to program, you should create tutorials. Here's just some tips I have for creating video tutorials:

Make sure your audio and video are in sync. Don't overdose with youtube comments, use your voice in your video, not screen annotations. Don't make your videos over 10:00. Make sure your not saying 'um' to much. Make sure your sound and video quality is good. Make sure your clear and people can understand you. SPEAK UP. Don't cram to much information in one tutorial. Keep tutorials to one topic, like the 'variables' tutorial doesn't need to go over math with variables, and all different kinds of variables, just 'this is an interger variable, this is a string variable, to make it you do this...'. Don't be afraid to screw up. Nobodys perfect and a learning environment doesn't need to be dull or boring. Learning should be fun. And it's not going to be easy to learn if you don't want to do it and are not interested.

Those are just some of my tips. Hopefully I'll stop seeing people do what I call 'Pulling a Notepad' in there tutorials! (No offense DavidB, but really?)

If you don't know how to screenrecord than get this software www.camstudio.org it's free. Than just google 'How to Make Camstudios Audio/Video Sync' and follow the steps in the first youtube video that pops up.

Hope this helps,

My mom refuses to let me do voice recordings, so I have to do NotePad instead. I would MUCH rather do voice recording instead.

CamStudio, but I just had a thought...I could use a text to speech software.

That sounds like the robotic voice in MS Word Very Happy. Anyways if it does do that, and creates a .wav file or a .mp3 (not .midi) than you could take the video, and add the sound with Windows Movie Maker. Of course getting the audio and video on sync is a whole new challenge.

I have problems with Windows Movie Maker. I will have to find something else to use.

This is the problem...




I've had an issue with it for nearly two years, now, but I couldn't figure out how to stop it, so I just stopeed using it. If you can help me solve it, great! But otherwise, I will just need to find another free video editing software.



Here is my Windows Version information...

Do exactly what I do Very Happy

START -> Programs -> Windows Movie Maker

Add a something to the movie... I save all my files in the C:\Program Files\CamStudio\filename.avi directory.

Drag it to the storyboard.

File -> Save Movie File

Click My Computer and Click Next

Enter a name for your movie and save the finished product in 'My Videos'

Select 'Best Quality Settings for My Computer'

Click Next and Wait for the Load Bar.

You do not have to save the project file.

That's all it takes!

PS: We have the EXACT save OS, I too have Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3
