Is it intentional that in Camtasia Studio 8 tracks do overlay other tracks in the timeline when zoom is applied?

See screenshot:

I can hardly read the contents of Track 3 here.

Yet another question in this context:

Why is zoom applied to call-outs separately? It seem I can redo my whole arrangement now after having zoom applied, because the call-outs don't seem to have been zoomed along with the screen recording.

Hi Axel,

Sorry to hear the animation drawer made things difficult for you, but we definitely appreciate your feedback. The good news is: we released Camtasia Studio 8.1 yesterday, and if you haven't already played around with it, you'll find that animations have a whole new look.

Instead of appearing in a drawer, the animations will appear as an arrow on the clip:

This means, you'll no longer have to worry about animations covering up your other clips.

You'll also find that you can select multiple pieces of media (for example, a video clip and a callout) and add an animation to both at the same time. I believe this answers your other question.

For more information on animations in Camtasia Studio 8.1, check out this video tutorial: http://www.techsmith.com/tutorial-cam...

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: http://www.techsmith.com/download/cam...

Thanks again for your feedback, and feel free to let us know if you have any other questions.
