Linear wipe animation

  • Updated 6 months ago
I'm using Camtasia 9; I just want to add a simple linear wipe animation (not transition) to a single object. In this particular case, I need it to go from bottom to top, but it should be possible to do this from any direction. I would have thought it would be a standard animation but I'm not seeing it. Am I missing it?

You can do this by creating a custom animation.  Highlight the object or clip. Short-cut key for an animation is Shift + A, then with your playhead at end of the animation, hold your Alt key down, put your cursor at the bottom of the object or clip, click and hold as you drag up.

Hi Naomi Skarzinski - tried to reply to your thread but no option.

thanks for the above. Anyone know the way to do this on a Mac? Tried substituting Alt key with option key but I think maybe another key might be different as well. Thank you!

Basically, its the Slight Right Transition, only it is Slight Up - which I can't seem to find. Thanks for any guidance!

Once you apply the animation. If the timeline indicator is placed at or beyond the animation arrow.

You can slide the media upward. The animation should be picked up by the arrow.

Thanks! I'm working on this now, and this is the exact effect I'm trying to get:

Maybe I'm not using the right function to make the words disappear gracefully.
