This is currently what my project looks like – it also has a click sound, but you can’t hear that. Duh.
Today in class some people asked some questions about to how to assign click sounds and a background image, well here’s what I did:
1. Source image, ensure its a .jpg or .png file and at set at the correct dimensions – EG) Im using the 16×9 3 Below Interface so I set my image to 1280 x 800 pixels.
2. Drag into the viewer where all your other media assets are (like you did your thumbnails pretty much)
3. In the Interface Editor, click the Background Image drop down box and select your file.
Your done – easy as.
1. Source your sound, make sure it’s in .mp3 or .wav or else it wont work.
2. Drag into the viewer where all your other media assets are.
3. In the Interface Editor, click the Click drop down box and select your file.
Just a note – in the SNU editor, there is an option that allows you to remove the sounds embedded in your original videos.
Now, dont forget to ……and keep on exporting to make sure everything worked!
You may also notice the text underneath the viewer in my project, I did this by dragging the Insert Text Widget into my interface, you move the box around and change it’s shape (it has to be square/rectangular) and position it like a normal text box in word.
Then, simply add text to your individual videos in the SNU editor and they will appear in the place you have put the Insert Text box in your interface.
Just make sure your video is assigned to the interface that your using!
Also found this FAQ on the Korsakow site to be super helpful for uploading final videos, at the moment mine are all super low resolution because I want to be able to export quickly to keep track of the changes i’m making and the effects small tweaks are having.
What is a good compression setting for online video?
Florian: “This very much depends on the connection of your viewer. In short, if they have very slow internet they are out. I use H.264 compression and I am quite happy with it: Compression: Codec: H.264 width: 360 | height: 202 | 25fps | streaming on | audio: AAC, mono, 24,000 kHz. Please play around with these settings. Let me know when you find good settings for Korsakow!” See Tips & Tricks for more details
