Step 2: Format Selection
Now that you’ve gathered all the media assets needed for your video, you decide whether you want to create a video with voice-over narration or no voice-over and just text on screen (Read more about that under Timeline).
Videos with voice-over narration can add another level to your video, allowing viewers to absorb more of the story and being able to reach a wider audience.
We make it easy to add a voice-over narration with a couple of different options:
- Recording it yourself straight into your computer
- Uploading a file
- Wochit VO: using one of our voice-over narrators in the cloud, if you are using Wochit VO you will be taken out to the Dashboard to wait for your voice-over to be completed after you confirm your script.
The way you choose whether you will be using the Wochit voice-over team or doing the voice-over yourself is with production lines.
Production Lines in Wochit are used to distinguish different customizations Wochit has created under your account. The most common use of different production lines is to allow for Wochit voice-over or self voice-over. You can access these different lines on the start new video page when you first enter Wochit.
Text Only Videos are good for social formats – allowing you to tell your story using text-overlays and custom animation.
Creating a video with just text on screen and no voice-over can be a lot faster, and can also be done in most production lines. Simply choose “No Voice-Over” and you will be taken directly to the Timeline to edit and add text on screen.
