Join Chris Mattia for an in-depth discussion in this video Handling mistakes, part of Camtasia Studio 8 Essential Training.
We all make mistakes, but by following a few simple rules during our recording,…we can make it relatively easy to fix those mistakes and end up with a…professional looking and sounding screencast.…The first thing you should always do before even starting to record is to make…sure that you have a clean starting state for your document, so that if you…need to start over, you can quickly and easily get back to the starting state for your document.…For instance, I'll typically go into my Documents folder, right-click, select…New and then Folder to create a New Folder called Backup Documents.…
I will then navigate on my hard drive to the location of the file that I'm going…to be using as part of the training.…I'll then right-click on the document, select Copy, close that window, then go…into my Backup Documents folder, right- click and select Paste, to paste a clean…copy of my document in here.…Now if I make a mistake during the recording and I need to start over, I can…quickly and easily get back to the starting state for this document.…
