[Feature request] Timeline Navigation Move playhead to next/previous stitch

Hi there, it would be great to add  on

[Feature request #1] - (Improves navigation)
̈Timeline Navigation:  Move playhead to next/previous stitch ̈ (Shortcut)

[Feature request #2] - (Improves productivity) 
̈Add custom animation ̈Zoom in / Zoom out ̈ automatically on each stitch (the user would set a variation of Zoom's ̈

That way the user could configure the whole timeline automatically like this:
    Add Zoom's interval / Apply on each ̈stitch ̈ or ̈clip ̈ /
   Zoom variation: 110% - 120% - 140% - 100%

By doing that Camtasia would add all of this custom Zoom on all stitch all at once, it's really time consuming going ̈stitch by stitch ̈ manually.

I hope you guys can release this feature ̈at least the Move playhead to next/previous stitch shortcut ̈

Right now is possible to do something similar but with clips

Move playhead to next clip - Ctrl+Period
Move playhead to previous clip - Ctrl+Comma

so one of the new feature could be

Move playhead to next stitch - Shift+Period
Move playhead to previous stitch - Shift+Comma

I'm not sure what your workflow is?
The idea of stitching media is this. Animations carry across the stitches.


The best thing to do when possible.Edit your video, then apply zoom animations. Just a video editing tip.

Hey Joe, thanks for replying,
I've been doing that, the thing is that I have to add more than 100 custom animations to zoom in / zoom out so the video doesn't see so stable.

The perfect situation would be having this option to add custom animation on each stitch.

Take a look on this screencast for more details: https://www.loom.com/share/50553a4ee8c94ee3bd4bf1f3c95ecc56

The playhead should snap to the splits/stitches on the timeline and also they should snap to the markers when you use the shortcut(s).

Due you have the snapping options on?

This again is on a Windows machine but this is all the snapping options that can be toggled on/off.

As shown under the Timeline Snapping there is a option to turn marker snapping on/off by check marking it or not.



If the snapping to marker shortcut isn't working than maybe you have a bug or need to do a repair install if Mac has that.

Sorry i can only reference a Windows system but hopefully it will maybe help you find a path to a workable solutions

Dubie:)

P.S. Even though I'm a Windows user I gave this a vote as a good idea.

Peace Out !!

It doesn't snap to stitches on any version I have installed on my machine.
What version are you using?

If your question is directed to me Joe I'm referring to markers not stitches.
If not me than all's good :)

Well you wrote:::The playhead should snap to the splits/stitches on the timeline.

Which didn't make much sense considering the topic of discussion.So lets  chock it up to typo and move on {:>)

hey guys, thanks for all replies on this thread, the option regarding to ̈timeline snapping ̈  on Camtasia 2019 for Mac OS is activated.

Seems like we will have to wait for a next version and hope Techsmith add some of the features below to speed up the editing process that by nature takes so long when it comes to videos.

[Feature request #1] - (Improves navigation)
̈Timeline Navigation:  Move playhead to next/previous stitch ̈ (Shortcut)

[Feature request #2] - (Improves productivity) 
̈Add custom animation ̈Zoom in / Zoom out ̈ automatically on each stitch (the user would set a variation of Zoom's ̈

That way the user could configure the whole timeline automatically like this:
    Add Zoom's interval / Apply on each ̈stitch ̈ or ̈clip ̈ / 
   Zoom variation: 110% - 120% - 140% - 100%

By doing that Camtasia would add all of this custom Zoom on all stitch all at once, it's really time consuming going ̈stitch by stitch ̈ manually.

thanks you all.
