Why You Need to Try an Audio-First Workflow for Your Videos

How can an audio-first workflow optimize your tutorial videos?

Creating tutorial videos using an audio-first workflow is one of our preferred methods at TechSmith. The editing process is often more straightforward, flexible, and easier to control than any other method.

But, as tutorial videos are primarily visual content, people often don’t think to start creating them using audio.

In this episode of The Visual Lounge, Matt Pierce walks you through a step-by-step guide to creating a high-value tutorial video using an audio-first workflow.

There are visual elements to this podcast as Matt demonstrates the workflow on his screen. If you prefer to watch this episode as a video, head over to our YouTube channel.
