Does anyone have a way to reveal text, word by word, in Camtasia 9? Not the "typing" effect - I want each word in a text annotation to appear to match words in audio. 
PowerPoint and After Effects have this feature.  Camtasia 9.1.2.

Hi there

I'm thinking the simplest way would be to place the full caption on the timeline and canvas. Then layer several shapes that cover the text. Then adjust the timing so that the shapes uncover the words as desired.

That's if you want to achieve this all in Camtasia.

Another approach would involve configuring one or more PowerPoint slides to behave as you want. Then record that using Camtasia.

Perhaps others more clever than I can offer better suggestions.

Cheers... Rick :)

You can create text callouts and crop them so they don't appear at all.
Applying short animations that reveal the callout one word at a time. As the words are spoken.



That way you can place the text above or below images. Anywhere you wish.
