An animation graph and the possibility to keyframe everything would bring Camtasia to another level.

What do you mean by an animation graph?

Animation graphs are good for altering applied animations.

Any applied animation looks best when the action is smooth and flowing. You can smooth out the changes visually as they interact with applied key frames using a graph.
It's great for complex animations but also requires the right type of applied keyframes with adjustment handles.

Camtasia doesn't use this type of "Traditional" keyframe editing.
Applying an animation using "Exponential In and Out". Is similar to bezier keyframing.

Shown below is Adobes After Effects timeline in graph mode.  In a nut shell, when you have adjusted the curves in the graph so they don't have any jagged edges or flat spots. The animation will be very smooth.

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the 1st of the month (this month is slightly different, due to the holidays) where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.

In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!

Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!
