Hard coded image path names?

  • Problem
  • Updated 6 years ago
I create my movie locally.  I use lots (and I mean lots) of .jpg and .png graphic images.  I create them, store them in a directory structure along with the .camproj file.  When I'm done and I've rendered the whole thing, I copy the entire project up to a company-wide "shared" drive for our editor, etc., to review and then deploy.

However, I've found that if he wants to get in and make a change, he cannot because Camtasia gives him dozens of "I can't find this file:" messages followed by the hard-coded path to the location on my machine!

I get why Studio might want to keep its finger on that information for "updating" an image but this is a real problem for us right now.  Is there a way to make Camtasia aware of relative links to those images?  Or--at worse--decouple the links entirely if I so choose and the weight of updating them on the timeline falls to my shoulders?

Thanks!

export your project as zip [file menu]; share that zip with your editor; he can import it into Camtasia Studio; he'll be a happy camper ...
