I cant figure out how to make things move around by themselves in a video (like a image moving around the screen when i click the play button)
i tried many things, maybe I could try using another program if Camtasia doesn't have this feature?

You can't move something on its own without you doing anything. Its the same with any editor there is. You have to add the respective animation to the image, only then will it move.
YOu can add animations by going to the visual properties options.
Hope that helps.

Hi there

I think more information is needed. For example, the images you are trying to move. Are they images you added after creating the project? Or were they part of a screen recording session?

If you added them separately, you would be able to make them move around the screen by using Camtasia's Visual Properties. And even if they are "burned in" (meaning they are simply part of a screen recording session) you are able to use pan and zoom features to bring them closer and move (pan) the screen.

But really, the only way we will know for sure what is possible is if you tell us what you have.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thank you for using Camtasia Studio.  As Rick mentioned, it would be great to have a little more detail about what you would like to move - whether it is something you are adding to the video or a part of the video itself.
