For the mean time maybe something like these will work.
If you would like give these a try you can download them here and add them to your library.
You can resize and adjust the speed to suit you needs.
Here's some examples all thrown together.
Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look into what cursor effects may be available for us to source for TechSmith Assets for Camtasia. In the meantime, I took Camtasia's ripple cursor effect, and placed that on a transparent background for you. You can download that from the link below.
in honor of getting my png video codec back. I rendered some A2D721 green gestures for you.
I'm still kicking myself for not thinking to use Premier Pro CC 2017 .
Thanks again Brent Beckman ,they still haven't answered my question in the Adobe Premiere Pro forum
How can I export video using the PNG format in Premiere Pro CC.
Many thanks for the A2D721 green gestures, with which I'm very happy!
Is it also possible to have these gestures available in a true circle shape, since they are a bit oval shaped?
The gestures you published before these ones are perfectly circle shaped.
This would surely solve it for me!
Sorry for the inconvenience ;-)
One thing to consider is that Camtasia Mac 2018 does already have a feature for touch/cursor effects for mobile devices called "Gesture Effects". I know that's not very helpful if you're using Windows, but in looking at how the feature works, is that maybe pretty similar to what you'd be hoping to accomplish? Here's a screenshot of what it looks like in action:
(you can learn more about it on our "Recording Your iOS Device" tutorial page)
I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts about that feature, and if that'd come pretty close to giving you what you're trying to accomplish.
I think Camtasia should capture gestures actions automatically.
Sometimes, I like to use my Wacom tablet as a touch pad with my desktop. If I did this while recording. Those actions would not be captured.
Adding and timing them manually seems like too much work.
Considering laptops have touch pads. I'm surprised a touch gesture feature isn't requested more often.
Perhaps laptop users have became accustomed to recording with a mouse out of necessity?
I kept reading requests for touch gestures for Windows. I was aware that MAC users had them for years. Yet, TechSmith never added this feature.
So I converted Aaron Wades touch Gestures to the PNG format for Camtasia 9 users to help fill that need.https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/gestures-are-now-available-for-the-pc-as-a-downloada...
So, not being able to test the MAC version. I have no Idea if I would like it or not. I tend to believe if the actions are not added automatically. I wouldn’t like it.
Adding them manually as videos is no walk in the park either. If your using a lot of gestures, that’s a lot extra work.
I’m a Desktop kind of guy. I hate Laptops. Used ones at my brother’s house for a couple of months without a mouse. Got quite proficient with the ‘Ol pad. If I were recording my actions. That would require way too many touch gestures.
Hi Kelly and Joe,
Looking at the screenshot Kelly posted, the solution in Camtasia 2018 seems to come pretty close to what I like to accomplish. For now the solution Joe recently provided works for me.
It seems like a good feature to have the gestures generated automatically, like already possible with 'regular' mouse clicks. And like possible with the mouse clicks, it would be nice to affect the opacity so you can have control over where the gestures should be shown and where they shouldn't.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I've been pulling out my hair trying to figure out how I was going to put in the taps for a demo video I'm creating for my boss to show at a conference. Like yourself, I'm a dyed in the wool PC user. The only thing Apple I own is my phone. Your touch gestures have saved me!
