Bi-Weekly Video Update – 06/24/18

Hey there, it’s Michelle this week and I hope you are getting some time in the sun. It’s quite hot and humid in Atlanta this time of year. In today’s video news you’ll learn a little more about creating a Table of Contents, how to get some new bonuses when you purchase Camtasia 2018 and a way to shift your mindset about image vs text in videos.

“Over the years, I’ve had a lot of fun arguments with folks who write scripts first and feel that doing the storyboard first is counter-intuitive. It’s only after they try the storyboard first, that it makes sense”

The author agrees that there is quite a challenge in learning to think in pictures. But it is a worthwhile skill to develop if you want to create videos.
