Hello i have camtasia 8.2.
I  took a video with my phone vertically from a speech and because the recording is quite shaking and flickering i want to isolate the speaker's face and in the background to show slides from ppt.Keep the face in a small square  and the slide behind him like here : suppose i dont have to do, for all the length of the video, zoom in to the face.I tried camrec and then apply smartfocus but error occurs like below.

The initial video is 18:25.Is there a way for this ? Somehow to mark the face once with zoom only on it?Thanks in advance!

Camtasia doesn't have a feature that will do that for you.

What you could do is apply video stabilization to the footage in only his head remains visible.

If your video is to shaky, applying video stabilization . Can induce undesirable results as well.

You Tube has a video stabilization "Anti-Shake" filter you can apply to an uploaded video for free .After that, download the footage and use it instead.
