I filmed a scrolling screen of an insurance company's offerings. I want to blur their name and phone number each time each appears. Is there a way to make the blur stay on the text as the video of the scroll plays? I am using Camtasia 3. I've searched in vain in the forum. Saw something about adding an animation but couldn't make that work either. Thanks ahead,
gerry

It would be simple to create a box or other shape that blocked out their info, or that contained (fake) blurred text. Then you could animate that box to follow their name or number on the screen.

Here are some excellent animation tutorials:

Unfortunately, no, there isn't a way to make the blur callout automatically follow something on the screen as it moves. However, as davemillman points out, you could use the animation tool to move that blur along. Hopefully you can get it in sync enough that way.
