What software do I need?
The main software you will need to make a Udemy course is a video suite that allows you to record your screen, camera, microphone and then to make some edits to those recordings so that you can present information in a professional way. The cloud powered video editor from Flixier let’s you do all that in a simple interface while running in your browser so no software downloads or installs.
What hardware do I need?
In the hardware department you will need a few things to get started but most of those you surely have around you. A PC or laptop to make the course edits is a must, if using Flixier to make the course it doesn’t have to be a super powerful computer because all the processing is in the cloud. You will also need a camera and a microphone, more about this in the next section.
Choose the best camera and microphone
In the camera department you could get by with your laptops webcam but we would definitely suggest using at least your phone camera. It is much better quality than any laptop webcam and it will make a big difference. In the microphone department you should spend around $50 and get a basic microphone, it will be miles ahead of the one you have on any of your devices, we have microphone recommendations in the sections below.
Why use Flixier to make a Udemy Course
Record or Import
With Flixier it is super easy to record yourself, your microphone and your screen. And if you prefer to use a different camera for recording we also make it super easy to import those too. Either from your computer from the direct cloud integrations.
Cut, Crop and Merge
Our tool makes it super easy to edit your courses. Cutting unwanted parts or cropping to focus only on the right parts of the recording is super easy. Merging videos together is also a breeze with Flixier, you can just drag and drop videos one after another to easily make a video composition.
Add animated text and shapes
When it comes to making a course the possibility to add text and shapes like arrows is a must have. In Flixier you can add animated text that keeps your viewers engaged or any kind of shape to help you easily make a point.
Add Images to courses
Adding images on top of a video is a great way to get your ideas across. Charts, drawings or other kinds of images can be overlayed on a video just by dragging and dropping them.
Add Captions or Subtitles
Adding subtitles to a video has become the expected norm these days. The trend was mostly imposed by social media platforms where videos are watched without sound. With Flixier you can automatically generate subtitles for your video with a single button press. Our cloud servers are processing your video and subtitles are added in seconds without having to lift a finger.
Super fast publishing in the browser
One of the best features of Flixier is that it is cloud powered and works in your browser. This comes with two benefits, you can access it from anywhere you can run a browser because your projects are safely backed up in the cloud. The second benefit is that you can publish any video in just a few minutes with any computer. No more spending a ton of money on expensive computers to edit video.
What people say about Flixier
I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.
My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
I'm so relieved I found Flixier. I have a YouTube channel with over 700k subscribers and Flixier allows me to collaborate seamlessly with my team, they can work from any device at any time plus, renders are cloud powered and super super fast on any computer.
