I am generating instructional videos for my company and have examples of how aspects of our data base works. Due to the need to have examples while maintaining proper security I need to blur out pieces of information. This becomes an issue though when I use the "pan and zoom" feature as the blurred section does not move along with the pan and zoom.

Is there any resolution to this problem to be able to have both features running concurrently?

Ben as far as I know this is something that cannot be done without some extra work-a-rounds but, you could always put it in to have the Blur Callouts follow the Zoom_n_Pan's a feature request. Someone from TechSmith or another user might have some more ideas or suggestions on how to complete this too. I hope this helps a little. Thanks for posting and have a Happy Holiday Season.

my workarounds for this ...

overlap the blur callouts [before/after] from beginning to end of zoom pan

use a transition instead of a zoom pan for these instances with blur callouts on either side of scene change

You could add your blur callouts first and then add your zoom/pan animations: http://www.screencast.com/t/DLbHbmsD6SbS

Also, if what you need to blur out is moving around in your source clip, it is possible to do that although it does involve some manual adjustment of animations. It probably wouldn't be practical for long videos, but here's how to do it: http://www.screencast.com/t/HV2g6fxr6zlG
