Hi Zen Creator! In this video, I will show you how to download your Zencastr postproduction files.

Produce is a paid feature that enhances and mixes together the separate audio (and video) files for you and your guests into a combined file. Produce can be used for any recording done on Zencastr for up to 6 participants at a time. Audio and video mixing is included for users on all plans, with additional advanced features available to users on paid plans.

In this video, my account is on a paid plan and my recording was done in the Record Audio and Video mode.

On your Dashboard, from the Rooms tab, hover over the room you wish to post-produce and click the Produce button.

On the Produce page, make sure the correct recording name and number is selected on the right, under Recordings.

If you would like to use the default postproduction settings, you can skip to the next step. If you would like to view and adjust settings, click the Edit button. For this video, I’m going to use the default postproduction settings.

To run the postproduction and download it to your computer, click Produce & Download. You then will be asked to select an aspect ratio for the final video mix, either 16:9, 9:16, or square. Please note, once you select an aspect ratio, the postproduction will run.

Once the postproduction is running, you can stay on the page but you do not have to. The postproduction will process in the background and you will receive an email when it is complete and the files are available to download.

When it completes, you have three options for downloading the files.

If you stayed on the Produce page, the postproduction will download as a zip file. Unzip the file and open the folder. In it, you will have an audio mix and a video mix. Users on paid plans will also have a postproduction transcript.

If you left the Produce page, open the email you receive when the postproduction completes. Click the Download button in the email. Login to your account and you will be taken to your recording page. The Podcast Mixes track contains the postproduction files. Click Download Audio Podcast to download the audio file and/or click download Download Video Podcast to download the video file. The files will download separately.

Alternatively, if you left the Produce page and want the zip file, on your Dashboard, from the Rooms tab, hover over the room you post-produced and click the Produce button. On the Produce page, make sure the correct recording name and number is selected on the right, under Recordings. Then, in the upper right, click Postprodcutions. Click the 3-dot menu to the right of the postproduction name and select Download. The postproduction will download as a zip file. Unzip the file and open the folder. In it, you will have an audio mix and a video mix. Users on paid plans will also have a postproduction transcript.

And that is how to download your Zencastr postproduction files. If you need further assistance, please contact us via chat or email at support@zencastr.com.
