How to Replace Outdated or Inaccurate Audio in Camtasia Studio 8

We’ve had several customers ask us how to update a section of audio in an existing project – without having to redo the whole thing. In this video, I show you how to update your audio using the Voice Narration function in Camtasia Studio 8.  This can save you a lot of time if you just need to fix a small error or out-of-date information.

The tricky part about replacing just a section of audio is making it sound natural.  Here are a couple tips.

  1. Record with the same equipment you used for the original project (e.g., use the same mic).
  2. Listen to the existing audio before you record and try to mimic the talking speed and tone of voice you used in the original audio.
  3. After you insert the new audio, make sure the old and new audio are at the same volume level for continuity.

    This is fabulous. I’ve been so impressed with Camtasia Studio and your many instructional videos. Light years better than Adobe Captivate. So user friendly.
