Learning To Use The Preview Section


Now that you've turned your script into Slides and recorded the Audio, you're ready to Preview your video!

Selecting the Background Track

On the left-hand side of the Preview section, you should see our Background Music tracks under the Recording Volume bar.

You can hover over each track and click the Play button to hear each song. 

When you click on a track it will turn blue, indicating that the track has been selected.

Generating a Preview

The first thing you should see when you move to this section is that Content Samurai needs to Generate a Preview of your video.

Unfortunately, this might take a little longer if your video has a lot of images or the runtime for your video is over 6 minutes long or roughly 125+ slides (give or take).

Watching your Preview

Now that the Preview has generated you should see a screen similar to the screenshot on the right.

You can Play and Pause your video by using the spacebar or clicking the play Play and Pause buttons on the video.

If you find that the video isn't in sync, you can click the 'Manually Adjust Timing' button to do some manual tweaking

Manually Adjusting Your Slides

After clicking the 'Manually Adjust Timing' button you should see a new bar appear along the bottom of the screen - this is your audio timeline that shows your recorded sentences and the slides that you've created.

You can see where the Slides match the Audio, so if there is a section that the Audio and Slides don't match, you can move the vertical bar for the slide into place by clicking and dragging it into place.

To make it easier to navigate around your audio timeline you can click anywhere, which will move the vertical red bar where you clicked. You can also Play and Pause by using the Spacebar.
