  • This is the Screen Recorder. Basically, all you do is
    • Select whether or not you want to put a caption (a box with some text) at the bottom of your video. This might be your name, phone number and website address.
      • If you don't want one, leave that checkbox blank and ignore it.
      • If you DO want a caption,
        • click where it says "Click here" and you can create, edit or load an existing caption with our Photo Editor.
        • We have provided several larger and smaller sized caption boxes for you to start with on the Internet. Just press Load -> From Internet (Captions).
        • You can see a step-by-step tutorial for creating captions here.
    • Select what type of video you want to create (for YouTube, for the Online Magazine, full-size as a video to download, for an iPod, etc.). Check as many options as you want - the Commercial Creation Center will convert them for you!

  • type in a name for your video, and choose where you want to save it, and click Save.


  • The video immediately starts recording everything you do on your computer screen, and everything you say into your microphone.
  • Leave 1 second of silence at the beginning and end of your recording.
  • To stop the recording, hold down the F7 key on your keyboard.

Now, you can review your video by going to the folder where you saved it.

Video Converter. This one is simple.

  • You decide if you want to put a caption at the bottom of your video. (See Tutorial.)
  • Then you decide what output video formats you want.
  • Then you press F7. This will let you pick a video to convert.
  • It will tell you when the conversions are completed, and you can find the converted videos in the same folder with the original video.


The Photo Editor lets you crop photos, resize images (with easy default selctions for image sizes that go on the magazine), and add different size and color text on top of the image. Create logos, ads and slides, or simply resize an existing picture to place on the magazine, including your Profile Photo.

Watch a video about how to use the Photo Editor. (Click on Photo Editor on the menu on the left.)

The Photo / Background Tab:

  • Load an image first. We provide you with colored backgrounds to create slides and caption boxes with text, and over 200 royalty free photos. You can also load your own images AND capture your screen.
  • Optionally you can crop the image by clicking and dragging with the mouse and pressing F7.
  • Or you can resize the image by pressing the Resize button.
  • You can always press Undo.
  • However, you must save the image before you can put text over it or add another image or text box.

    Notice how you can load images:

    • from your own computer,
    • from our internet library of images and backgrounds,
    • screen capture your entire screen or just a selected area (you draw a square by clicking and dragging your mouse on the desktop screen), and
    • also paste an image that is in your clip board (let's say you copy it from somewhere else).

The Text Tab:

  • You can select an area on the image to place the text by clicking and dragging your mouse. Press F7 and the Text Editor box pops open.
  • To move the text around the image, click and drag to select a new location and press F7 again, or use your keyboard arrow keys.

You can select a font size from the Edit Text box. You can also now select a font type.

You can also change the color of the text with our Color Picker.

You can only print one color and size of text at a time. But you can click Save and then add more text with different colors and sizes. Repeat this process to create multicolored, different sized text in different areas on your image.

The Add Extra Image Tab:

This can be used to add a Caption Box to an image that you have already created, or a video you are about to create.

Sometimes, when you want to put text on top of an image, there are too many competing colors in the background, and no matter what text color you choose, some of the text disappears. For a video, you may want to put your name, phone number or link to your website at the bottom of your recording.

So you can create a Caption Box in our Photo Editor with any color background you want and then overlay it over your picture or video.

  • Just load one of our blank video Caption Boxes (LOAD IMAGE -> From Internet ->Captions). You will see 320x50 or 176x25 (use 176x25 if you will be creating a video in any Mobile Phone or Pocket PC format. Otherwise, 320x50 is your best choice),
  • or create your own caption box by loading a background (LOAD IMAGE -> From Internet -> Backgrounds or Background Colors) and cropping it to any size,
  • and save it.

  • Then click on the Text tab, add text on top of it
  • and save it.

  • CAPTIONS FOR VIDEOS: If you want this to be the caption that is overlaid at the bottom of your videos, click the checkbox at the bottom left hand side of the form AND PRESS SAVE.

  • CAPTIONS FOR IMAGES: Now load into the Photo/Background tab whatever image you want to put your Caption Box over,
  • save it,
  • and then go to the Add Extra Image tab to add your new Caption Box over it like an image.
  • Save the completed image.

Add Extra Image can also be used to overlay an image over a picture. You can even create a collage. Sometimes the image will have some transparency. We are working on that issue.

The most important thing to understand about putting an overlay image on top of your picture is that you MUST PREPARE the overlay image IN ADVANCE. Imagine you are decorating a cake, and you want to put chocolate covered strawberries on top. Well, you MUST melt the chocolate, dip the strawberries and let the chocolate harden before you can put the chocolate covered strawberries on the cake. It's the same process here.

Your overlay image is the chocolate covered strawberry. You need to create, resize and perfect your overlay image BEFORE you add it to another picture or slide. You CAN'T edit the image once it is put on top of another image. You can only browse for it and put it on top of another image.

Understand? (Now craving chocolate covered strawberries or cake?)


The simple Voice Recorder lets you record your voice simply and quickly. It can be used by itself, or in combination with our Audio Mixer (where you can combine several individual audios, and even add professional background music that we provide to your audios). There really is no need for a video, because you can't mess this up, it's so simple.

  1. Choose the device on your computer that you will record with. Normally this will be a webcam or microphone you have plugged in, or your sound card.
  2. Next, select the type of microphone or input you will use. Normally you just use whatever pops up, but you can be adventurous and try some other options if you want.
  3. Press Start Recording. Talk. The volume adjusts automatically for you, and you can see the lights move up and down.
  4. Press Stop Recording when you are finished.
  5. Press Play to listen to your recording. Press Stop to stop it. And press Save to save it.

Told you - there's not much to it!

Troubleshooting your recording:

1) If you hear a lot of puffing or blowing or pops or clicks, you probably want to move your microphone so it's not right in
front of your mouth or under your nose. The microphone should be to the side of either corner of your mouth for best
placement. Try also recording in a quiet room.

2) If the sound is not very loud (or too loud), change the recording level by clicking and dragging the slider on the
Volume bar. If this doesn't work, you may have to change your internal settings for your sound card (ick, I know,
sounds scary, but it's not too horrible).

First, find the Sound/Volume icon on the bottom right hand side of your computer, probably somewhere near the clock. Or click Start -> Control Panel ->

Right-click and select "Open Volume Control."

Click on Options, and then Properties

Select Recording instead of Playback.

Find the microphone column and move the slider up (or down) by clicking and dragging it.

Then just click the red "x" at the top right of the form.


Copy Recording from CD. Use the top drop down box to select which CD drive has a CD in it. If you guess the right one, you will see a list of tracks (or recordings) on your CD. Check which ones you want to copy.

Pick a location to save your track. We have created a folder called "cd", but you can save it anywhere.

It will tell you the progress of how far along it is in the copy process.

It will tell you when it is finished.


Mixers: Slide Show Video Maker, Audio Mixer & Video Mixer

Watch a video about the new Mixers.

Below is the Slide Show Video Maker. The screens are basically the same for all 3 Mixers.

The Slide Show Video Maker lets you select or create an image or slide to include in your video.

Then you have the option of selecting or recording an audio narration to go with that image or slide.

You can only do one slide at a time, to keep it simple.

Once you have added a slide to Slide 1, Slide 2 opens up so you can add information to it.

Notice that there is a small version of the image or slide you selected to the right of the slide.

You can click that to pop up a larger version, so you can look at it while you record a narration
for it.

Another option is to add background music to your video.

You can select your own, or you can choose from our online library of professional music.

 

The last tab combines all of the slides, audios and background music to create a video.

Step 1: Choose the size of your video (big or small).

Step 2: Preview your video (this is a MUST).

Step 3: If you added background music, you can adjust the volume easily.

Step 4: Create the Video. (You can also watch the last video you created.)

 

The Audio Mixer's form looks pretty much the same, with the exception that you can only add audio files to the Mixer.

The last tab says "Mix Audios", but basically takes you through the same 4 steps.

 

The Video Mixer works pretty much like the Slide Show Video Maker, only you can't add audio narrations.

But you CAN edit the start and stop points of your video, so they look a little more professional.

You can also Rearrange your slides, audios or videos with our Rearranger.

Just drag and drop folders from the left to the right, in the order you want them. Then press Done.

You can also save all of the slides, audios or videos in your project so you can load them at another time.


 

Upload to YouTube(TM). Clicking on this will take you to YouTube.com where you can login (or register if you don't have an account yet) and upload a video you have created.

First, login or sign up for an account.

Once you have logged in, click on the Upload button.

Next, fill in the title, description, category and keywords for your video.

Next, you can browse through your computer to find a video to upload, or if you have just finished creating a new video in the Commercial Creation Center, you can paste the path to that video next to the Browse button. Click Upload Video.

It will take a little while to upload, but when it is finished you will see a message that shows you a link to where you can see your video, and also some code that you can paste back onto your own website if you want to post the video there. (Even after it uploads, it takes a little while to be ready to view.)


 

Watch a video about how to put your newly created audio, video or image on the magazine.

Or, you can now go to your magazine page, click in the File box, and press Control + V to paste in the location of your video. Fill out your Upload Audio/Video page with a title, description and key words and press Send.
