I would like to be able to apply a gradient fade effect over a portion of a video or image (FROM WITHIN CAMTASIA AND NOT ANY OTHER APPLICATION OR PRODUCT)  so they appear to blend or fade together. The effect would be like a gradient alpha channel except it could be selected from within CAMTASIA and applied to a video or image.

Hello all;

I wanted to step in here as it clear that the this thread has gone beyond the spirit of this user-to-user community forum. I appreciate the explanation of what Britt is looking for out of Camtasia and as mentioned a few times throughout, the gradient fade is not currently possible within Camtasia outside of a workaround or two. However the clear and hostile tones used within this thread are in direct opposition to our Community Guidelines and as such the thread will now be closed and votes will no longer be possible.
I strongly recommend posting a new thread that adheres to the community forums guidelines; to ensure your thread has the most exposure it can have (meaning more votes and more opportunity for the developers to add the function to the living backlog of community-provided feature suggestions) please be sure to be articulate regarding the idea as well as sharing any examples whether that be via screenshot or video, as it will help define the suggested feature. I would also like to politely remind the community that while there are a significant number of extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled users of TechSmith applications, users of varying skill levels within Camtasia and Snagit will come across these posts. Some user may not fully understand the idea without seeing an example and thus votes may be lost.

As I mentioned I will be closing this thread given the relative tone and general discourse of the conversations; if you have any questions, concerns, or complaints, please contact me directly at so I may address the issues directly.
