I'm new to the program. I bought it because it does what I basically need. We have training sessions on-line, but not everyone can attend, so I want to capture the training session with a screen capture and after it's over, I cut out bits of extraneous matter then take what's left, slice it into chunks according to the agenda and then post each segment as a lesson and thus people can come back and watch all sessions or just the ones they missed. Camtasia supports the screen portion part, and I even seem to be able to cut out the extraneous matter, but it doesn't seem to support the rest, at least not in any reasonably easy manner and I can't seem to find tutorials or even help files that deal with these functions. For example, I'm looking at a 6 hour track. So I move to a place in the track and I hit the "split" key. I now have what I consider two clips (none of the program language seems to support this use of the word, but that's what I call them). Now, if I move to another point on the track to try and make another split, it is grayed out, the "S" key doesn't work etc. (although I did find if I right-click on play head and select "split all" it will make a split, but that seems illogical when "split" makes perfect sense). So, it seems a track can only make one "split". Is that right? Next, I have these "clips", I can't seem to do anything with them. You can't drag them into media bin or the library and you can't save them. How do you control the clips? The only work around I've had is to load the file, delete everything to the right of the clip, ripple delete everything to the left of the file, then save it. Then I undo (CTRL-Z) my way back to having the whole track and repeat the process until I've hacked out each segment, then I go back and load each saved segment and work on the chunks as if they were individually recorded. Is that how it's supposed to work, or am I missing something. Also, there doesn't appear to be a way to renames each "clip". I can rename each track on the far left of the screen, but the clip name(s) always say "Rec 10-30-16 (Screen)" and they all have the same name, no matter how many of them I make. Is there a way to rename these clips? I did find I could put markers in, but they don't stay put if you cut or edit anything, so they don't make good place holders. I realize these are vary, very basic actions, but I can't figure out how to make it work in a simple fashion without having to take hours doing and undoing and saving. The program must work better than that. Also, does the recorder have a timer? I couldn't find one. I would like to not have to be present, but program it to start at a certain time and turn off, either at a certain time or after a specified duration. For instance, I's like to set up my desktop to come on and capture fullscreen starting at noon, record for 5 hours and then stop. Better would be a schedule, like start at noon, stop at 1:15, start again at 1:30, stop again 3:15, start at 3:30 and stop and save at 5:00. Then I'm on auto-pilot and can do other work while Camtasia is recording the conference. (my job has nothing to do with what the company does and sitting around for hours and days listening to them talk business is a real pain). In any event, any help or advice would be appreciated. If I bought the wrong product, please let me know and tell me what I need to do this job. It seems pretty simply to me, but then I'm not a programmer either.
