For this last "technical" assignment, the goal was to make a screen capture to teach something. I tried to integrate other shots using the technique I was showing to grab the attention. I also played around with After Effects ans the Essential Graphics panel to build something like an intro that I would be able to easily re-use later. 90 seconds was a real challenge but making it short is so important !
First of all, I wrote a script in French for this tutorial and then translated it in English.
For the screen capture I used Camtasia because of the options it proposes (easy zooming, webcam capture...). I didn't know exactly what I would need. I wanted to have all the opportunities. Finally, I could have used VLC and animate the screen capture directly in Premiere. I didn't use the webcam and needed to speed up some portions of the clip.
I recorded a voice over directly in Premiere Pro with a Shure dynamic microphone as Jack explained in his Class 5 assignment (Thank you, Jack !) :
I made a lot of takes to obtain something fluent enough. I cut and adjust the speed of some portions to get an exactly 60 seconds demo.
The clip used in my tutorial comes from pexels.com.
Me, myself and I
I shot some clips of me talking for the intro and the outro with my Canon 600D and sync the audio with my Zoom H4 Pro. It was on the table, near the computer, but I made my frame to hide it.
For the titlings, I played with the Essential Graphics panel. I quickly added the default Lower third to introduce myself and spend a lot of time in After Effects to create the intro. I really enjoy animating motion graphics like that! It's 10 seconds long but there's a lot of work in it!
Sort of a storyboard for the intro...
