2. Record

Now that you know WHAT you need to record, it's time to get down to business and record it.


  • Using your planning document, number all of the files that you are going to be creating. This will make the linking easier in the long run. Then you can join them into a single file quicker (and determine your time stamps) or you'll know which files link to which.
