Need to make a plan for an online video series...

Need to make a plan for an online video series...

I am good at writing and reading my audio scripts, recording them and editing them with Audacity. But I am new to video editing.

I plan to use Powerpoint, record my desktop and marry the audio into the video.

What's a good tool for this?

I have several Adobe licenses, and suspect I can use one of their tools for no charge. But, it may be overly complex for me??

What Adobe tool does what I need?

I have a Mac, so what other tools might work for me?

I want to have a standard enough tool where I can hand off the file to an expert for some final enhancement and maybe some animations...

I personally use Camtasia by Techsmith for this type of thing. It does everything I need without the learning curve associated with Premiere Pro. I can record the audio and the video and then do all my editing in Camtasia.

But if you want to be able to hand it off to a pro for finalization, you'll probably want to use Adobe Premiere Pro for your editing needs.

Unfortunately you can't record your screen with Premiere Pro. But you can use PowerPoint (or Camtasia) for that part.

Sorry, you'll probably have to do the audio part in Camtasia because Mac PPT won't export narrations. Or, better yet, just play the presentation and narrate while capturing the screen and audio in Camtasia. That way it's one complete file.

I like this better than merging MP3 and MP4 with iMovie. Great idea...
Glad it helped. I agree this would be the more straightforward way to go about it.
