I personally enjoy Camtasia quite a bit but there are a number of things that would be included in the next Camtasia. I hope there would be a function that allows us to cut each video in a circle form as it's described in the attached short video.

To create a video in a shape other than quadrilateral requires producing it for export with "alpha channel" to AVI or MP4 format. The alpha channel defines the transparent sections; in the case of a round cameo video, everything outside the circle must be exported as alpha (transparent). To my knowledge, Camtasia does not currently support full export to alpha channel. Using visual effects to knock out areas of the video exports those sections as black. If this information is incorrect, someone please let us know exactly how to do it without using another editor like Premiere.

Interesting. When I clicked the link and saw a wall of text unrelated to video, I kind of assumed this was another mystery meat post!
