Digital video is a medium that is now available to almost everyone. It can be captured on anything from a mobile phone to a high-definition camera, and published anywhere from YouTube to Blu-ray discs. In Premiere Elements 4 Essential Training, Adobe Certified Instructor Chad Perkins explores all the video editing capabilities of Premiere Elements 4. Chad starts with a real-world sample project, then covers techniques for importing and editing video; and adding effects, transitions, and animation. He concludes with a final project incorporating all the steps, including exporting and posting. Exercise files accompany the course.
In this movie I just briefly want to show you the fact that you can actually record a narration, if you want to from here inside of Premiere Elements. Let's say, you've got a collection of baby videos from your kid growing up, I mean the first couple of years of their lives. What you can do is just kind of assemble those clips together and you can add a narration and it says "Oh! This is little Johnny. When he was first learning how to suck his thumb," or whatever is going on. And so you can do that by coming over here into the Timeline and clicking on the Add Narration button and from here you can just click the Record button and start recording and that's all there is to it.
As a matter of fact, you can see that my voice here is registering as I'm talking because it's picking up my microphone in the computer. Now again just as with audio volume and mixing audio that we talked about earlier, you want to make sure that you're not getting any red here when you're recording. Because that means that the audio will be distorted in too loud. So I recommend that before you record, you start talking as loud as you possibly need to and if it's still not in the red then you're probably pretty safe. Once you finish creating the Narration, the audio track, the WAV file that will be created, will be added to the narration track and you can use it as you please.
Once you have done recording just go ahead and hit the X in this Narration window to close this box and really that's all there is to recording a narration for a movie. Next we're going to be taking things up a notch as we close out this great chapter on audio in our video presentations. We are going to be talking about effects and how to fade-out audio, fade-in audio and all sorts of cool stuff, again taking effects to the next level.
