How do you use the blur tool in Camtasia that "moves" with the part I'm trying to blur out?

Any #camtasia for #mac experts or @techsmith able to direct me to a method of blurring sensitive data that doesn't require ugly squares?

We did implement a blur annotation in Camtasia for Mac 2 which released last week. You can blur out information on the screen. In order for it to track something on the screen as it moves, you will need to add an animation to the blur and change its position to match the changing position of the object on the screen. It might require several animations to be added in order to maintain position with the area you are blurring. However, if the area you want to blur doesn't change too much, it should work well.

We are considering providing a better method for blur to track an area or object on the screen. No guarantees on when and if this will be implemented however.

Here is a written tutorial showing how to use the new Blur Annotation:

I hope this helps!
