If you use PCTG in a Dribbble shot, the inclusion of a “PCTG” and/or "precomposed gestures" tag would be appreciated so that I can keep a curated bucket.



However, Camtasia 9 cannot open them.

Aaron was kind enough to grant me permission to convert his files to the png codec to share with you. He said he will be updating his files in the future.

I took the liberty to create some new video files. There already Orientated to Portrait Mode. Plus I've included the original Landscape videos.
I created a left rotation as well, since we can't reverse footage in Camtasia.

These animations are all 1920 x 1080 and will re-scale larger or smaller well. You can add them to the Library for easy access.

You could add clip speed and slow them down a bit.


I made a set of Red ones for contrast.


You could use colorize to change the color.Not all colors will work,but it's an option.


You can download them here.The file is 14.83 MB.

I decided to do this because someone asked about gestures for the PC just yesterday. It is also a feature request that dates back at least 3 years.https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/gestures-for-the-pc

Hi Joe,
Thanks so much for these! We are having trouble with the Colorize tool in Camtasia changing the red gestures to anything other than a light orange or pink and the white gestures do not change at all.
I've called Techsmith about this and am providing them with the .mov files so that they can take a look. 
Do you have any other suggestions? We are trying to change them to "grassy green" and "steel grey" colors. Thanks!

So what I was doing was combining Colorize & Color Adjustments. White cannot be colorized with Camtasia.



The problem is these gestures have Brightness variations built into them. I believe the variations were generated using  Luma "Gama".
 Controlling the start and end colors is what you can do best.
I don't remember how I got the Olive Green  rotation example in my original post to stay that green.It's all in playing with the applied effects.


You're the first person that's even given any feedback on this. It would make life easier on a lot of people if TechSmith would add gestures to Windows.

To be fair, that's probably more trouble than its worth. So, I made you some Green and Steel Gray Gestures. You picked a couple of good very good colors.
They both colorize well, you can colorize them and come up with a lot of other choices.

I was playing around  with the green ones in Camtasia here. The gray ones produce darker tones.
I only applied color correction to the very last gesture to create magenta.
 
Hope they serve you well.
