Both are good. Doodly, is a great way to take notes on different topics and to see them in relation to one another. Videoscribe is a bit more flexible and can be used to record music or video files.
Video clips are a lot easier to edit than audio files, and video clips have a longer play time than audio files, which makes them a good way to record voiceovers and demos.
It’s true that videoscribe has a bit of a learning curve, but by the time you get to editing your video clips, you can probably do the same on audio files.
I think the main issue with video clips is that they’re a bit easier to edit than audio files. However, videoscribe supports audio (and video) files, so no matter how hard you try, video clips are an absolute breeze to edit.
It comes as no surprise that video clip audio is a better medium to record voiceovers and demos than audio files. Video clips are a much more efficient way to capture a voice, thus taking a bit more time to edit than audio files. The fact that video clips have less noise than audio files is a huge plus for the audio demo and video voiceover. Another minor issue is that video clips have a bit of a latency issue, meaning the sound does not travel as fast.
We’re pleased with the video clip recording experience, but not so much with the audio demo. The audio demo takes much longer to record than the video clip because we need to record the voiceover voice over at a reasonable volume (we record the background music with the microphone at full blast, but the voiceover is recorded at a quieter, and therefore less intrusive, volume). Also, the audio demo is done on a laptop.
The audio demo is done on a laptop with an onboard microphone. The video demo uses the same laptop, a Sony Vaio laptop with an onboard mic that has the same level of latency issues as the clips.
The video demo is done at a significantly lower volume than the clips, which is why you’ll be hearing a significantly lower volume of speech in the video than the audio demo recording.
The audio demo is also the video demo with the highest audio latency from the PC and the lowest latency from the iPod/iPhone. The video demo doesn’t use the same microphone as the audio demo, so the audio demo recording has the lowest latency latency. The video demo recording has the highest audio latency latency by far, but there is no audio latency latency on the video demo.
This is because the PC and the iPodiPhone are both using the same source material for the audio recording and the video recording. This means the audio recorded on the PC doesn’t have to travel from the PC to the iPodiPhone, so the audio latency on the video demo recording is slightly higher than on the audio demo recording.
