Getting started with the Post-Production Console

VodBurner records Skype video calls and allows you to edit the recordings to produce a mastered final video. You may decide keep this mastered video file on your hard drive to show family and friends, or you may want to upload to YouTube to share with everyone. VodBurner has some neat features where you can add subtitles to your videos, trim / delete parts of the video, choose which camera to show and pan back and forth between the cameras, show both people on the Skype video call on a side-by-view etc.

To edit your recorded video, you need to use the VodBurner Post-Production Console. Here is an overview on the VodBurner Post-Production Console. When you’ve finished recording a Skype video conversation with VodBurner, the following dialog is shown:

To launch the Post-Production Console, click on the “View and Edit the recording” button.

When you click the “View and Edit the recording” button, VodBurner prepares the recorded Skype video content for the editing console. Note: This process can take a while depending on the speed of your computer / length of the recorded video. This progress dialog is shown while the Skype video files are being prepared for the Post-Production Console:
