Creating and using media files
There are a number of different things we can do with audio, like adding sound effects to slides, or to actual objects on a slide, even play sound in the background if we wanted to, and we’re going to look at those scenarios.
In this lesson you will have a better understanding of the basics of eLearning assessment, set up our first quiz. We will explore partial and negative scoring, use different question types and work with a pretest.
Publishing your project
After you create a project, you publish your project so others can view it. Adobe Captivate contains many publishing options, and you can publish the project in many formats. You will also learn reporting to a Learning Management System (LMS).
Enhancing audio in e-Learning content with Adobe Audition
Before you can use Audition, you need to configure your computer and audio system to work with the program. This lesson covers audio interfacing for Mac and Windows computers.
The Audition Environment
You can create custom workspaces with particular selections of windows and window arrangements, as well as choose various ways to navigate through Audition’s Waveform Editor and Multitrack Editor.
Audition makes it easy to cut, paste, copy, trim, fade, and perform other processes on audio files. Learn how to zoom in to make extremely precise edits, while seeing a zoomed-out version in the overview window at the top.
Learn to use the signal processors to “sweeten” the audio in multiple ways: fix tonal balance, alter dynamics and add ambience or special effects, and much more. Draw from the extensive collection of effects included in Audition, or use third-party plug-in processors.
Audition offers tools for reducing hiss, hum, clicks, pops and other types of noise. Learn to remove undesired artifacts by defining sections to be removed based on amplitude, time and frequency.
Mastering is the stage between mixing and distribution. By tasteful application of EQ, dynamics, waveform editing, widening, and other techniques learn how to shape a piece of music into a refined audio experience that’s ready for distribution or posting online.
With Audition’s array of signal processors, learn to modify common, everyday sounds into something completely different like transforming a wall fan into a spaceship’s engine room or a running faucet into crickets at night.
Creating and Recording Files
Not only can you record audio into Audition’s Waveform Editor or Multitrack Editor, you can also extract audio from standard Red Book Compact Discs or drag files from the desktop directly into either Audition Editor.
Multitrack Editor Orientation
Learn how to use the Multitrack Editor to assemble clips, add effects, change levels and panning, and create buses for routing tracks to various effects.
The Multitrack Mixer View
Learn to use Mixer view which is optimized for mixing rather than editing the multitrack project’s tracks.
Learn to apply a variety of operations to individual clips, including combining them with crossfading to create a perfect DJ-style continuous mix of music. Also learn to bounce the mix to a single file suitable for exporting, burning to CD, uploading to the web, and so on.
Creating Music with Sound Libraries
Using commercially available sound libraries and Audition’s Multitrack Editor, Learn to create music easily for commercials and audio for video, kiosks and other applications.
Recording in the Multitrack Editor
In addition to simply recording into a track in the Multitrack Editor, Learn to punch over mistakes and assemble multiple takes into an idealized and composite take.
Audition can remember parameter changes you make in a Multitrack Session and store those changes as part of the Session file. Whether those changes are performed in real time as control movements or created and edited in non-real time. Learn how these automation processes apply to individual clips or complete tracks.
Creating a mix is an art and a science. Audition’s Mixer view combined with automation, long-throw faders, the ability to detach the mixer and “float” it on another monitor and various other crucial tools help create the mix. Learn to save it in a variety of file formats (including MP3 for uploading to the web), as well as burn an audio CD of the final stereo mix.
Scoring Audio to Video
Learn how Audition can load video preview files; when composing soundtracks or adding dialogue, the video window provides a crucially important reference.
