  • Wes:

    • Screenflow
    • Speed up slow typing
    • Edit out some goof-ups (but not all)
    • Edit immediately after recording so I’m in the same headspace and can easily re-record
  • Scott:

    • Hire a video editor
    • Cut out all blank spaces in audio, because I know that pauses are typically where I stop to think
    • Normalize audio
    • DaVinci Resolve 16
