How can I have the shaking screen effect without creating it manually?

  • Updated 3 years ago
I have created sometimes the shaking screen effect but it takes too long to do it and the result is far from perfect, compared to other editors that have it already looking great like it is flowing. Is there a way to find it somehow or is there a way to insert this effect as plugin in Camtasia 9 somehow?

You could apply a behavior and play around with "Jump".
Set the In behavior to "None".
Set the Out behavior to "None".
Set the parameters very low for jump and see it you can come up with a shake effect that works for you.
You can always add animations to change it up a bit every few seconds.

As with Joe, the "Shifting" behavior does a decent job.

I found the "Shifting Style" to work for me.

In -  set to "None"
During - set to "Shifting" ( see image below)
Out - set to "None"

I also added a modest Z axis back and forth roll custom animation

You could also add some blur for better effect

I like yours better, but you can't beat a true FX filter for simplicity.

Sorry ninewinters,  but Camtasia isn't geared for special effects and there aren't any plug-ins compatible with Camtasia.

There's a lot of software out there with FX effects.
