I would like to make 3 suggestions that would really lift Camtasia to the next level! Because I love camtasia and it is still my prefered platform, however I am forced to use premiere pro before start using camtasia and I would love to see that change. The things I'm using Premiere Pro for:

- color grading (not even the advanced one, just the AUTO function is already sufficient, I really wish the color grading on camtasia was slightly better and has a AUTO function)

- Whip Pan Transition: nowadays lot of youtubers have professional looking transitions, which are just simple whip pan (blur) transitions often. But 95% of camtasia's transition (apart from fade & rotate cube) are not looking very professional in my opinion. The whip one for example goes around 3 times! Why not having the option of choosing 1x? Or 2x? that would be great if you guys can have a look at that! 

- And the last thing I really love about Premiere Pro is, just before exporting a file, is the choice of bitrates you want to export with and to see how large the final output file size will be. I can set it to e.g. maximum 5 or 6 or something and see the output file size, which is really handy nowadays, since youtube only allows 2Gb for example. I think that users should have the possiblity to see and change the output size before exporting. 

Thanks for having a look at my suggestions!

I would also respectfully add this: Have Camtasia be able to import and show transparency in videos created with such. Man I made these gorgeous looking animated graphs with transparent background in Motion 5 at home, then brought them to the office to overlay them on some gorgeous clips in Camtasia ... only to find out that nope ... forget it.

Not for a second do I believe that anyone in Techsmith reads your message rientsenzo, or my comment. If you do ... please wash away this paragraph with your soothing compliance to the great suggestion above.

Regards,

b.

@Brooks  I am really hoping that you guys can change the Whip Transition into 1x instead of spinning 3x, before 2020 version comes out. I would use this transition a lot! Can you have a look at it pls?
