Learn how to export your project, with all the files embedded, into an easy-to-share or archive zipped folder.
- Okay, so your project is done. You've rendered it out, uploaded it to YouTube. You just got a raise and won the Sundance Film Festival Award for most amazing e-learning video ever. What now? I recommend you archive the entire project in a safe place. You may say, gee I really just need the final video. I'll just keep that and delete all these ginormous files hogging up my hard drive. Well, I can't tell you how many times archiving an entire project has saved my behind.
Sooner or later you're going to need to make a change to a posted video. Maybe an error was discovered, or a person featured in the video left the company and the CEO wants them removed from instructional media. Or maybe there's just been an update to a how to video. If you have the original project file and all the media, you can just make the change without having to start all over. Additionally, archiving a project is a great way to share it with a co-worker. You can send off your zipped archive folder, confident that all your media is intact and you won't be getting any grumpy grams complaining about missing files.
If you've been using the exercise files you've been using archived projects. Now I'll show you how to create one. I'm going to go up here to File, Export as Zip. I'm going to browse to my location. I'm going to go ahead and put this in my working folder. You can name it whatever you want here, I'm just going to call it Audio Interface, Save. I want to make sure this box is checked, Include all files from Media Bin in zip and click OK.
Camtasia collects all my files in my project, no matter where they live on my computer and packs them up in a nice, neat, little package. And if I open up my working folder, there is my Audio Interface zipped package. I can back this up on a hard drive, or upload it to the cloud, or shoot it to a co-worker for collaboration. To re-open the project, I just drag and drop the zip folder into the Media Bin, click OK. And whether it's been a week or a year, I'm right back where I left off.
