How do I crop the video into a circle?

Pretty much this, but for Camtasia 9 on Windows.

ok I noticed in the help doc that this is only for Macs, but is there any chance this can be implemented on the Windows version as well?  

For now, there's a hacky workaround by making a PNG of a green circle in a blue rectangle, then removing the color of the circle, producing that as an mp4, adding it back again, then removing the blue color from the rectangle.

Thanks.  Works nice.   Especially for photos where you want to turn a square photo into a circle.   Yes, a square photo to circle can easily be done in an external program with an alpha channel pretty quickly, it's nice to know that this feature exists in Camtasia.     ....Rowby
