Combine PowerPoint Animations, Transitions, and Video to Create an Ad

After speaking engagements, I like to walk around with my iPhone and iRig microphone to capture testimonials. This video is from a recent conference, Society of Government Meeting Professionals, SGMP.org. I created portions of this video in PowerPoint with animations and slide transitions (in PowerPoint 2010, you can render directly to video).
I pulled the PowerPoint video into my editing software (Camtasia) and added music and the testimonial videos from my iPhone (I’d added all that to PowerPoint, but it kept crashing). I’ll send this to attendees and my conference host.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
 
PEACE.

Record Better Sound with the iRig Mic for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

If you’re not satisfied with the sound quality when you record videos with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, get the iRig microphone. In the video below, I’ll show you the difference in the sound quality when the mic is used. It has three settings that will change how the sound is picked up in various situations.

  • Low intensity setting will capture all the sounds around you.
  • Medium intensity setting cuts out the noise around you and is ideal for busy tradeshow interviews, podcasting, and other similar work. This is the setting I use.
  • High intensity setting cuts down the background noise, but records loud.

I want to use my iRig mic with other gadgets other than the iPhone or iPad (if I had one). I found an adapter that works. It turns the iPhone connector into a standard mic plug. K-AD-IMIC (iPhone iMic to standard mic plug Adapter, 3.5mm TRS Male to 3.5mm TRRS 4 conductor Female).

I also want to use my other microphones with the iPhone so I purchased the adapter, KM-IPHONE-MIC (iPhone 1/8 inch microphone adapter – 3.5mm 4 conductor TRRS Male to 3.5mm Microphone Input Jack).
