Would like it so can crop parts of videos (the sides for example) and then put it where ever you want (like outro to different videos). so instead of zooming in with camtasia tool then rendering it, then putting it you video you want it in you can do it all in 1 project.

Add how long left till rendering if finished on the "rendering project" so i can schedule PC shutdowns like 20mins after the estimate finishing time instead of leaving it on till i get back wasting power! :P

Hi TheGamerBeans,
Good News!
We added Crop in Camtasia Studio 8.1.0
The Crop tool removes unwanted outer areas of a video clip or an image.
1. Click the Crop icon to turn crop mode on. (Located at the top of the Canvas in the toolbar on the right next to the Pan button.)
2. On the canvas, drag the blue handles to remove desired area.
3. Click the Crop icon again to turn crop mode off.

You can also hold the alt key down to enable crop and then release alt when you are finished.

For more information, watch this video tutorial:

If you have Camtasia Studio 8 installed (trial or licensed version), you can update to the new version by clicking Help > Check for Updates or by downloading and installing here.

No timer on the production bar still but from my experience timers like that are just estimates and fluctuate often based on a number of factors. I can see why it would be useful though.

Thanks for using Camtasia Studio!
