1) how do I delete all of the zoom and pan effects that are automatically added to my screen recording? and
2) how do I stop CS8 from adding them in the first place?

Okay - finally figured out that what I am after is to actually delete the SmartFocus effects.

Only upon zooming out of the timeline (making it really small so the entire video shows) did I notice a little up arrow in the center of the timeline - if I click on that it reveals the effects for that track.

Then I could right click on 1 specific effect and remove them all with one of the menu options

Really not very user friendly here

Hi Steve:

Glad you figured out how to delete the animations.

Look in Tools>Options to find this menu and then un-check the appropriate box if you want to add SmartFocus-free clips.



Thanks for posting,
-Josh

Hey Josh - thanks for that

I did look in the Help section before posting here - couldn't find this in there or in the PDF doc. Might be something worth adding around the keyword phrase of "remove smartfocus animations" or something.

Just an idea.
Steve
