I have a custom transition I am trying to use.  The color black in this case needs to be transparent.  I can do this in stills easy enough in snagit.  Is there a way in camtasia in a video clip to make a color transparent?

Use the feature "Remove a Color"

You'll find it under the Visual Effects tab.

If the black section is it's own object, you can adjust the opacity to whatever you want. If the displayed image is one piece, adjusting the opacity would affect the entire image.

Thank you so much. Removing the color works perfect.  Had to look for the visual effects as it't down in the more tab.  Just started using this program about a week ago so I'm a total noob but it is fantastic. thanks again.
