  • Use the three dots on each clip to edit it.

  • Perform basic editing tasks like cloning and deleting clips.

  • Perform multi-clip operations such as merging, adding voiceovers, reordering, and bulk deleting clips.

Step 4: Adding Audio to Your Video

You can add audio to your clips using three different modes: AI text-to-speech, voice recording, or uploading existing audio clips.

  1. Click on the Voice Settings option to change the AI voice settings.

  2. Choose from multiple languages and accents.

  3. Adjust voice styles, pitch, volume, and speed.

  4. Add the text for each clip and click on Generate Audio.

  5. Repeat the process for all the clips.

Step 5: Customizing Your Video

Trains offers various options to customize your video and make it visually appealing.

  • Unwanted sections of the screen recording, such as page loaders and button loaders, are captured and automatically enhanced.

  • Unlock and make changes or add audio to these sections if needed.

  • Edit the introduction image, change the theme, and modify content and images easily.

  • Use the Spotlight mode to turn on/off spotlight, drag, and resize it.

  • Add annotations like text, rectangles, and arrows to highlight important information.

  • Use Zoom Transitions to zoom into specific areas on the screen.

  • Blur sensitive information by selecting the area and clicking on the Blur Selection option.

  • Choose from different layout options for your video.

  • Select a solid colour or use pre-designed templates as background and borders.

  • Perform advanced editing tasks like trimming, splitting, and timeline operations under Advanced Editing.

Step 6: Previewing and Publishing Your Video

Once you're satisfied with your video, you can preview and publish it.

  • Share the video with your end users by generating links.

  • Embed the video into your application or knowledge base.

  • Export the video as images or PDF.

  • Add call-to-actions, chapters, and modify auto-generated subtitles for the published video.
