adding transitions at the middle of a clip

Hi
as i understood, we can add transitions only at the beginning or at the end of any clip.
regarding above note, we have to split our single clip to many groups, everywhere we need to insert a transition.
but it would be nice if we could add transitions anywhere on a clip (like other similar products), so that we were not forced to split our clip to many groups only because of being able to use transitions
So isn't there a way to add transitions anywhere on the clip in camtasia studio 9 ?

You can add Animation along your clip but not Transitions.

Transitions are well... as they imply a transition from one clip to another clip.
So you have to split your main clip to be able to use a transition.

As Dubie says, transitions are intended to provide a nice way to move from one segment of something to another. I recall when I was new to Camtasia I was playing with them and after having learned how to apply them, I was just randomly splitting clips and applying them. And I was a bit mystified that many didn't seem to actually DO anything because the clip was so similar.

What might be helpful would be to describe how you would expect them to work and what you would hope to achieve if they were available in mid clip. Perhaps there is another way to achieve what you want.

Cheers... Rick :)

Agreed with Rick

Give a little more details or example. Could be a possible workaround.

thanks to both Rick and Dubie

i am really receiving great support here in this forum and thank you for these valuable guides.

the story is:

i am recording many 1 hour training video clips & to avoid monotony (tedium) during my clips, i need to add some interesting effects for example every 10 minutes inside my recordings.
in my viewpoint, both transitions & animations are effects that make interesting & nice fillings during clip observation.
i wasn't familiar with animations & i tested them as dubie said & they are nice, but they are not enough.
i hope inside animations, we had effects such as "spiral" and "cube rotate" since they are very attractive for viewers.
i believe it is not a must effects such as "spiral" and "cube rotate" must be mentioned as "transitions". they can be available in "animations", so that for example when i was to open an application )during my training recording) , i add the nice "cube rotate" effect.

i wish  in next editions, (please if possible) transitions be merged with animations as one part so that we be able to add all of theme anywhere in the clip (like animations)

(sorry for my english if any mistake...)
thank you very much
