How To Slow Zoom in & Out in Camtasia 9

Hi, I thought it would be easy but i can't seem to figure out how to slow zoom in and out.

I know the longer you drag the arrow the slower it will get but it is still too fast. I need to do a very slow zoom on one short clip, slow zoom outs as well in other parts of the clip.

Really need to finish this video. Anyone know how???


Found this video on youtube but it is in sony vegas. This guy is talking about using keyframes. Is this what i need to do? If so, how?

If anyone from camtasia sees this, can you please make a video show how to do this as I know there are other people wondering as well.


Using Windows 10, Desktop.


Thank you.

You can apply a clip speed adjustment and slow down the videos speed to increase it's duration first.



That way you can drag the arrow out further slowing the zoom effect down more because the clips duration will be longer.

Thanks for the reply joe,

But the issue is that i can't slow down the clip. I am trying to add slow zoom in's and out's in the video to make it flow better and more interesting. Kind of a Lens pulsing effect.

I know you can easily do this other programs but can't seem to figure out how to in camtasia 9.

I thought it would be straight forward as camtasia is very userfriendly.

No, just the video clip it self. Am trying to slow zoom in's, and slow zoom outs without slowing down the clip.  I think it involves using keyframes maybe. Not that familiar with camtasia 9 so was wondering how.

You can Enable Easing to Exponential In and Out.
Which slows the start and end speed of an animation. It makes the Acceleration at the start of the animation and the Deceleration at the end smoother. Like a car starting and stopping without jerking.But that's the extent of the control.

 In other programs you can control speed on a curve between keyframes. But this is also an advanced form of editing and it's really not in Camtasia's wheelhouse.
