Add Voice Narration to your Camtasia for Mac Project

There are lots of ways to create videos with Camtasia. Here at TechSmith, we generally start with a script and storyboard, record the audio, record the video (while listening to the audio), and then edit it all together. Others record everything at once, with or without a script/outline. Still others record their video first, then record voice narration of that video, and put them both together.

This quick tutorial will show one way to add narration to video you’ve already created:

How do you work? Any other tips you have to narrate an already recorded video?

    Hello, I am trying to add narration to a video already created on Jing, is there a way how??

      If you’re on Windows, you could import the Jing video into Camtasia Studio and add narration there. Free trial of Camtasia:

      I believe you can bring an MP4 file (created by Jing Pro) into Camtasia on Mac, but not a SWF file (created by Jing).
