Investing in Camtasia Studio was one of the best decisions I made. I would like there to be an option of adding grids to screen to be able to follow the rule of thirds when editing videos. Here's a video in which I used the new feature 'Device Frame':

If you post this as an Idea people can vote for it.

But if you want a rule of thirds grid a png image will do the trick.
Here's one I created in Photoshop.Just right click it and save it to your computer.

I added the blue border so you would know at a glance it's centered.
I saw your video, so I know you will know how to use it.

If anybody else want's to download and use the png.Go for it.Just place it on a track above the video to see it.

This is brilliant thank you! It truly baffles me why video editors don't have this feature; it would be comparatively easy to add, and yet almost none have it!
