Update Your Audio in Camtasia Studio 8

Have you ever finished a screencast only to discover that one small chunk of your narration is incorrect? Or learned a few weeks later that some of the information is out of date? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone.

We’ve had several customers ask us lately how to update a section of audio in an existing project without having to redo the whole thing.

To help, I’ve made a video showing you how to update a small section of 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 This can save you a lot of time if you just need to fix a small error or out-of-date information.

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

  1. If you can, record with the same equipment you used for the original project and record in the same location.
  2. Listen to the original audio before you record and try to match your speed and tone of voice.
  3. After you insert the new audio, adjust the volume so that it matches the original audio.
