As you see, the Audio editor is a complete mess in Camtasia Studio 9. We now don't have the 'Silence audio', 'Add audio point' button.
Or are they hidden in any group of function? Please let me know. These two buttons meant a great deal to me in Camtasia 8 version.

The functionality still exists, but the user interface has changed.  To silence a range, right click on selected range and select 'Silence Audio'.  To add an audio point, just double click on the audio volume level line.

Here is a quick video.  http://www.screencast.com/t/OnaWkwup

Hello Stephen,
I'm now able to use the 'Silence Audio' and add audio points. Thanks for the tutorial. But I'm having a lot of trouble using the newest version.

1. When I applied the 'Silence Audio' to a portion of the audio file and added some audio points and worked with them together, it plays very well and flawless in the Camtasia canvas.
But when I export the video, the audio points got messed up. I mean, I applied a silence to some 'ummms' in the audio. But in the exported video, i hear the words 'ummm' but the main conversations got silenced. That also happened when I manually added some audio points to create an effect but in the exported video, the effects got applied to somewhere else. Shortly, everything plays well in the Camtasia canvas player but they got messed up in the exported video.

Look at the screenshot. I miss all of the red marked things from the previous version.
  • To view in fullscreen, we have to now detach the canvas and click on the fullscreen button. But a direct button in the upper middle button set would be helpful
  • Shouldn't there be a time viewing thing just like we had in the previous version? We now cannot view the length of the video until we go the end of the timeline.
  • Buttons to go up/down/left/right of the timeline would be very handy.
3. In the project settings, there is no option to select 'Original Recording Dimension'. This is too frustrating.

Hello there Undiscovered Coal,

As far as the projects settings go there is a way to automatically make the project setting "Original Recording Dimension".

Go into preferences and set the program to Original Recording Dimension.

 Once you've done that. Anytime you are starting a new project, the project dimensions will automatically be set to match the first item placed on the timeline. This applies to images as well, so keep that in mind.
See Image.
Premiere Pro behaves the same way and I've been using that program for a very long time. I like the functionality a lot.



Regards,Joe

It mostly handled through the keyboard and mouse now.

Take a look at this webpage. https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/222160928-Audio-Editing-and-Effects

I've already bought Camtasia Studio 8.6.0. Now it's telling me to buy Camtasia Studio 9. Why do I have to buy it again???

Deadman, Camtasia 8 will stop prompting you to upgrade if you disable the feature 'Automatically check for updates"

With the release of Camtasia 9/3.
There will be no future updates coming for Camtasia 8. So you don't need the feature enabled.
To disable it see image below.

Regards,Joe

As stated above you can select the area to be silenced and right click to select the silence function or you can use the "short cut"  Shift + S and the area highlighted will be silenced.  Make sure never to cut into a silenced area or the audio points will be altered and an area once muted will now act like a  Fade In or Fade Out.  In other words portions of the previously muted area wll now become audible.
