EDIT 556 - A video tutorial with captions
I used Camtasia to create an online video tutorial for Google Docs, specifically for documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. In order to get the flow right, I had to write a script that I could follow while I did my screen clicks. Just like a movie, I did take after take to get the presentation right. It was easier to get it all right in one take versus editing the short pieces together. I added zooming in certain parts to help the user "see" what I was doing. I realized after inserting the captions that I chopped up my footage to the point where I couldn't continue my effects on my clips. I did not figure out how to merge my clips to get around it.
