In Camtasia Studio 7.1.1 you can extend a video at a specific point within the track. Everything moves to the right and the specified time is inserted.

However, a split is also introduced. And it is obviously not possible to have callout across a split.

It would be great if I could insert a few extra seconds here and there for timing in an instructon video, without having to manually correct the callouts across the new split.

Hello Guido,
We couldn't agree more, and I hope you will see callouts not be affected by splits in the future.

Hi Guido,

I agree, too. You may already use the copy/paste method when you have to extend a callout over a split...but just in case you aren't, here's a video that might help. The part I'm referencing starts around 35 seconds.

Thanks,

Hello Guido,

We just released Camtasia Studio 8. Callouts are no longer restricted by the Video 1 track. Callouts and video are treated the same. You can place callouts and video however you like on an unlimited number of tracks.

Here, for example, a video with cuts and splits is on Track 1. A callout is on Track 2:


However, you may still need to manually adjust the duration of your callout after performing an Extend Frame on Track 1. I hope you will find the overall workflow much easier. If not, let us know!

You can learn more about what's new in Camtasia Studio 8 here: [ http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia-wha... ]

(You can try the fully functional trial for 30 days without having to uninstall your previous version of Camtasia Studio.)
