Adding multiple assets all at once to a Camtasia project editor panel

  • Question
  • Updated 1 week ago

I find myself using the exact same items from my asset library for each video that I create:

  1. my title intro
  2. A call out
  3. Company logo

 And I find myself putting all these things in individually one by one each time on the Camtasia editing panel.

Is there a way to package multiple assets together and add them all at once to the editor panel? This seems like an obvious need that I can't find how to do...

you can just send those assets to the Library as a group; that's what I do for my tutorial's start and end groups; then, add them as a group into your projects ...

for more structure, the templates also work great

Thank you Joe and kayakman for your assistance again. Kayakman, I noticed that you made a video just for me to show me how the groupings work. Very instructional and good to see. I appreciate it!

I was still a bit confused afterwards about how to create and manage groups of assets and then I found this article which made it clear that I could take a bunch of assets from my timeline, right click to put them all in a group and then save the group

glad the groups are helping

when you select multiple items on timeline,  but have not yet grouped them, you can directly add the multiple selected items to Library [like by using ctrl-shift-A] and they will get grouped in the process, thus saving you a step
