How to acquire the 'custom' transition feature

Hello... and thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer me with my problem

I'm trying to animate two layered pictures... I'm trying to make it look like one picture morphed out of the other one.  While keep both pictures on the screen.  I've seen some youtube videos that seem like it's exactly what I'm looking for, but involves using the 'custom' transition function.  Unfortunately I don't see this under my transitions.   I've looked under pull down menu or all the transitions and it's simply not there.  

Could I ask someone to explain how to see this?  I'm pretty baffled why I'm not seeing it.... Once again thanks in advance for anyone that read this and could offer a solution!

Can you post a you tube example? It may be an effect that requires a tweak.Or it may be an effect that Camtasia cannot even produce. It's hard to envision without an example.

Thanks for the quick reply!  Here's the video I saw that demonstrated something very similar to what I want to do

Put the media you want to appear above the media you want to disappear.
Under Animations add the one that is called  "No Opacity" in the middle of the one on Track 2. The one you want to magically appear.
Adjust the position and length of the Animation to your liking.

Works great to make one disappear and a new one appear. ( In Camtasia 9 )

like Joe, I noted that the transition was the page turn transition; animations will do the fly-in effects, and are easiest applied by selecting the target clip and using the shift-A shortcut; here is a short course how-to ...

Thank you for the reply! 

I apologize though... I must not have been very clear when I'm trying to do.  I have a picture that has a small section in it (I have a duplicate copy I'm going to put over it).  I want to expand  that small section and make it larger and pull it out  to make it seem like there's some depth to it.   I want to use that small section to explain some things and I want to highlight it in a somewhat dramatic way if possible.

The video I posted seems like it would do the trick as it moves an image around the screen, but in that demonstration it uses a transition feature called "custom" which I can not find in camtasia 9.  If I could ask you to tak a look at the youtube video I think what I'm trying to do might become clearer.

Once again... thank you for your assistance!

Hi Keith, Russell is using the ‘Custom Animation’ which is found under Animations not Transitions
If you do not see the Animations button on the left in the Tools Panel then select the ‘More’ button.
Hope you find it!
