How do I save my webcam positions and size in a camtasia presentation

I am using the latest Camtasia version 2019 Build 17643. Now I am using a webcam and screen recording (talking head). When I am editing the video I would like to change the size or position of the webcam (talking head). So the first 1 minute or so it is bigger and in the lower right of the screen and after 1 minute somewhere else and maybe resized. I used to just do that resizing after 2 minutes in older versions but when I  do that now it changes it for the whole project.

Any ideas how I can do this?

Kind regards

David

if you want to edit or resize on any position of webcam video. you must split that part and resize or re-location you wanted.

thx Samarn but how do you split it? You mean the webcam video portion itself?

I'm not sure I'm understanding the problem.
How are you recording the Webcam?
Is it displayed on screen as you record your video?

A webcam is recorded to a separate track if you use the Camtasia recorder.
Or any other recording device.
You would size the video to taste at the beginning of the video.



When you want to resize and/or reposition it. You add a custom animation.



The animation arrow can be reduced in duration. Making the change instantaneous.
