Should you be using music in your project? If so, what can you do to make everything fit together? Learn how to make music work with your other Camtasia 9 assets.
- [Narrator] The first question I ask myself…when it comes to making music work is,…"Does music work for this project?"…It's tempting to add music to every project.…It really does seem to make everything more interesting.…However, for my audio interface project,…I tried it out,…and I really don't think it helps my objective,…which of course is to show how to use a field recorder…as an audio input device.…And, truth be told, this is my general rule of thumb…when it comes to instructional videos.…Music tends to be a distraction.…
However, there are exceptions to this.…One of the best examples I can think of…are those fast-paced, text-based cooking videos…you see on Facebook.…It just works for that.…So, given that, for this video,…I'm going to assume that you are dead set…on adding music to your project.…And despite my better judgment,…I'm going to figure out how to make music work for this video.…The first thing to consider is the music itself.…To keep yourself out of trouble,…it's best to stick with legit, royalty-free music.…
