Camtasia 3 (Mac) Enhancement Requests

With the release of Camtasia 3 for Mac I had hoped to find the same features as in Camtasia 9 for Windows. Although the UI is now much more consistent, I'm still missing some key features on the Mac side:
  1. Produce Timeline Selection As...
    I'm often recording whole meetings with camcorder, which I then cut up in small pieces. On Windows that is pretty easy using this option, but on Mac I can't do this.
  2. The Library is completely missing on Mac.
    The Library is a very useful and often used feature. On Windows I was able to create my own library of clips which I could very easily use in my projects. I created a number of assets with video, music, text and animations. All I can do now on Mac is save these in a separate project and copy paste from there. Not the most user friendly way compared to the Windows version.
  3. A number of transitions are missing in the Mac version compared to Windows:
    - Circle Stretch
    - Page Roll
    - Page Turn
  4. Highlight and Blur Annotations are inconsistent between Mac and Windows
  5. Sketch Motion Annotations are inconsistent between Mac and Windows
  6. Can't add Windows Keystrokes Annotations on Mac and vice versa
  7. Zoom-n-Pan Animation is missing on Mac. This can only be achieved using a Custom Animation.
Lovely job you did on making the Mac version more feature rich and more aligned with Windows. It would be even better if you made added these features too so they become even more aligned.

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea/feature request!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the 1st of the month, 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!
