What I really would like to see in next Camtasia is Multiple Sequences in one project. Possibility to embed one sequence into anotherone. Possibility to export every single sequence as an independent lesson. That's how I do in Adobe Premiere.

could please explain further?  maybe post a brief screencast, host on screencast.com, describing [mock-up?] what you're looking for?

thank you for the screencast; it helped a lot

I believe you can do what you want by using the Library to hold your "sequence" assets; also, if you make your markers/quizzes as "media markers/media quizzes', you can move stuff around and the markers/quizzes will stay in correct place

have you used the Library; are you familiar with exploiting its capabilities?

I do use libraries. What I usually do :

1. Group
2. Right Click - Add to library (u can't just drag the selection into the "library" panel. Of course u can always use the shortcut, but still most of people work in different software and they have their habits. For instance I use PS, IL,Pr, in most of my projects thats why I am looking for the similar workflow.
3. If u keep the assets in the "library" panel the only thing u can do is right click and export assets as a ZIP file. In most cases I don't need that funcionality (I mostly use File/export zip for the whole project) but I need to export single asset (group of assets) as a local file/SCORM. When u press the share button u can export only the timeline content and that's why sequences would be very helpfull. One project, many sequences.

 That thing could improve the workflow in Camtasia.

From many years I was using different kind of screen recording software: Screen Flow ( I have it on my mac ), Adobe Presenter Video Express (now supports SCORM), SNAP, Storyline, Captivate, Camtasia...

Now I use mostly Camtasia :D I really enjoy this software but I do belive that it can be better every day.

Cheers!

thanks for additional details

what do you mean by "PS, IL,Pr"?

one approach I use is to keep my "sequences" in the Library using serialized names; I can then work on each individually; if I need them all in a project, I add them all back to timeline at same time; quick and easy

I have many tutorials on using the Library and exploiting its capabilities; if interested, they can be found here ...

I might assume that PS=Adobe PhotoShop, IL=Adobe Illustrator, and Pr=Adobe Premiere Pro?
