I am trying to use Adobe Premiere Elements 10 to re-create a software product demo. I have the audio recording file of the demo and 72 screen shots of the software. I'm trying to marry the two together to create a new video file which will basically be a re-creation of the demo.
What is the best way to align the screen shot photos to the correct audio time stamps? For example, I want to specify that shot 1 is :14 - :45 and shot 2 is :46 - 1:32 and shot 3 is 1:33 - 1:55, etc. Do you know how I can set these time stamps telling the software when and for how long it should display each screen shot photo before moving to the next one?
I have found where you can specify duration for each photo - like shot 1 is :32 duration and shot 2 is :45 duration and shot 3 is 1:45 duration and so on. The problem with this method is that if you're off by just 1 second it has a cummulative effect so 10 photos in and your audio could be out of synch with your photos by a good 8-10 seconds -- this is not good.
If anyone can let me know how to do this I'd greatly appreciat it. Thank you, Mark
In PRE you can edit down to frame level (just repeatedly zoom in). In your case I suggest you right click your still and use Time Stretch to set the exact duration you want. The format is hours: minutes: seconds; frames.
You can also stretch or shrink duration by placing the cursor at the end of your clip and click-drag.
