I am working on Camtasia 8.5.2

I have a video file which, I have separated in two parts.
You can see in below image.



Now, As you can see, I have used zoom in animation on first clip and I want to continue zooming with same dimensions for second clip as well...

Though, I have copy pasted animation for second clip, its not working perfectly...
(screen comes in original dimension for a while and again it get zoom in)

what is the best practice /procedure to continue zoom in with the same distentions with different clips  ?

Hello,

If I understand the question correctly, you are wanting the zoom to CONTINUE from its end point in the first clip? I believe that if you note the visual properties of the zoom as ended in part 1, that you could re-create that as the starting point of the zoom in part 2 and finish it from there.

It's very simple to do el.kolhapur

First......Right click on the clip that has zoom applied. Select "Copy Visual Properties"
See Image



Next.....Right click on the adjacent clip and select "Paste Visual Properties"



DONE, that's it

How can we do this for callouts that have been added before zoom? When I start zooming on a callout the callout will zoom as the base-recording but when I zoom in a callout later on the timeline e.g. the spotlight will stay in the same position despite the zooming.

I'm not sure I follow your question but if you select the video and callout at the same time and"Group" them.  You should be able to apply a spotlight animation to the new group.
You group them by selecting them first, right click and select "Group".

Yes, with a group it's possible to get the results I want.
