When performing long tasks in a training video, you may decide to use time-lapsing to shorten it up. Doing this can help increase viewer retention and satisfaction.
- [Instructor] Next, let's take a look…at how we can use the concept of timelapsing…to improve our videos.…So here within the video editor,…I'm actually going to skip ahead a bit.…And let's take a look at this area right here.…I'm going to push play…and we'll listen to it for a little while.…- [Recording] And then I can leave a note down here.…In this case, I'm going to leave a note…of the people that I will be with.…(typing)…- [Instructor] All right, I'm gonna go ahead and pause that,…because as you can see,…it's kind of painful waiting around for me…to type all of that in.…
