Hi Dan,

That is something we are taking a look at offering in the future.  In the meantime, here are a couple 3rd party providers that offer Camtasia specific animations and transitions.  

eLearningBrothers - http://elearningbrothers.com/camtasia-templates-1/

Callouts.com - http://callouts.com/

Also, many of the larger stock assets sites contain video/images that will work with Camtasia as well.   Hope that helps!

Let me start by saying I'm a total rook when it comes to this stuff. But what I'm attempting to do is more commonly used in After Effects. It's probably more of a callout now that I think of it. I've got a talking head and let's say it's you. At the bottom in most cases, I want to put a few shapes & colors together that create a "Kelly Rush, Associate Program Mgr" callout at the bottom. In some cases I want a matte transition between frames with some flash style transitions. I guess I could do it with the shape box, just figured it would be easier to purchase something stock.

Ok, so I think you're looking at making something called a "lower-third". Are you aiming to do something like this?

Brent, this is exactly what I needed. Going to get an annual subscription too. Whatever I used to query this in Google didn't bring it up in the call.

Often, they offer a 7 day trial period where you download many of their catalog items (but have a daily limit 20 downloads, I think).

If you are concerned about scamming, don't use a regular credit card -- but use a Visa or Mastercard GIFT card instead.  I did, with a gift card that only a $1 or $2 left on it, and was still able to sign up.

Much of the stuff I downloaded came in MP4 or MOV, and works well.

Also, regarding the transitions I found, they are not "Camtasia-speciic", but you can just drop them on the timeline and adjust their position until the look good.

I found that once you find that "right position", you can split the transition clip where the underlying video clips meet, then you can easily copy and reuse..

NOTE:  They also have sister sites:  audioblocks.com and graphicstock.com

I mentioned videoblocks. com earlier -- they have lower-third graphics also.
