PLEASE Help! LOL

For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to do this in C9....

I have a piece of text that has a sliding behaviour for entrance. 

The text slides in to the middle of the page at 150pt. Then, I would like the text to rotate from horizontal to turn (about 25 degrees) and shrink to 29pt inside an existing circle callout on the page. The text stays there whilst I repeat this process for more text that will end up inside the circle.


I cannot figure out what to do to get it to shrink and turn.

In CS8, I would apply an animation from visual properties, move the playhead to where I want the shrink and turn to start and make the change.


Now, I don't know how to get the playhead to appear on the text animation to do this.

arrrgggg. .....tearing my hear out LOL

Cheers :)

If you could post a screen shot with the timeline I can probably help.

I understand what you want to do but I need to see what your doing as well.I know there's a way.It may require a different approach.

Hi Joe, I don't have much of anything on the timeline at the moment as it is a brand new project. But Here is what I have:

I'm having trouble with Screencast it doesn't like my log in info.

SO I went with You tube, it's a little crude and tossed together but the steps are there.

I shrunk the text  box as opposed to decreasing the actual font size in the font properties panal. It's works just fine but if you were to start with small text and scale it up from there.It might become Pixelated and blurry. So in that instance I would recommend changing the font size instead of re-scaling the text box. I haven't played around enough with Camtasia 9's text to know what would actually happen in that situation.

Regards, Joe

It's a full HD video so you might want to click that gear Icon for 1080p and go full screen viewing
