I want to make the video with index files. What I think is a file which contain index page and video data. And if I click the item of the index, I can jump to the top of the part of the video. And if I want to back to index, I click the index icon of the video data. Can I make make the file like that by using Camtasia?

Hi, one solution would be to use 'Interactive Hotspots'. Create your callout e.g. index icon, select Visual Effects and add Interactive Hotspot. There are several actions you can choose e.g. go to Marker, go to specific time. You can create a Table of Contents using Interactive Hotspots too. This works great with branding.

Alternatively, you can create a Table of Contents (TOC) using Markers. In the Production Wizard you can adjust how and when the TOC displays. If you wish the TOC to display all the time the following video may help from TechSmith: https://www.screencast.com/t/zl4KyfcMc

Please bear in mind you must produce with the TechSmith Smartplayer for this interactivity to work.

I hope this helps. Jayne

Dear Jayne san,
Thank you for your quick response. Now I'm looking for authoring tools for video data.
Now I'm going to download and test Camtasia. Thank you very much again from Kochi Japan.
