Speeding up your videos

6 replies
I am editing some member area videos and i was trying to speed up my videos.

My audio became like mickey mouse.! lol..

To me it was annoying. haha

But i felt that was the speed i would like it to be.

Anyone knows how to speed up video & audio without the high pitch. ?

If not, would you rather hear a high pitch annoying training video or a slow normal voice training video?

I dont exactly speak very fast. :po

    What video software are you using?

    In Camtasia you can split the video and audio, so if you wanted to speed things up and keep the voice recording normal you can do that but you'd have to split it first.

    • Hi

      You might want to carefully consider if your videos really are that slow. Why I say that is many videos - particularly 'How to' videos tend to be too fast.

      You see, when you're explaining something you already know, you have to take into account the viewer for whom this is all new. So you need to take it slower than you might imagine.

      I've conducted many live masterclasses on video creation and internet marketing generally, and - unless you've done the same - you might be surprised how slowly folks absorb new information.

      But, provided you are satisfied that your videos really are too slow for the average viewer, then:

      If it's on Camtasia, simply unlock the video and audio tracks by clicking the blue button on the left. Delete the audio track and use the 'Narration' facility to re-record your voice over, once you cut the video down a bit.

      On Sony Vegas, you can also uncouple the audio from the video track by right clicking and selecting 'U'.

      Warmest regards,

      Paul

      yup am using camtasia.

      I split the audio and video and then speed the audio up, but still it is in high pitch.

      • Trying to speed up the existing audio without it becoming high pitched would mean you rewriting the Laws of Physics.

        Far easier and quicker to use the 'Narration' mode and re-record your voice over.

          Thanks paul.

          Really love your logic.

          But one thing i find hard to do narration is that you will always be a split second slower.

          You see your slide then you talk. So narration will be lagging.
          And if suddenly u need to talk longer than your video then u have to add a pause also every now and then.
          So it gets abit of a hassle.
