Lower Third asset missing when upgrading to 2018

  • Updated 4 months ago
I used a lower thirds animation to produce a branding outro in a previous version of Camtasia. It was saved in my library but when I upgraded to Camtasia 2018 it disappeared. I have tried to find it in the assets library but it doesn't appear to be there. Now I only have it in an MP4 file.  Is there any way to separate the assets within that MP4 file if I open it in Camtasia or find the Lower Thirds asset and anywhere? I am relatively new to Camtasia and would appreciate any help on this.

I know which one it is; it's hexagone-lowerthird02. It was from a promotional pack that was created by an outfit called E-learning Brothers, who are Techsmith partners. There is a whole bunch of them under the group "Motion Graphics - eLearning Brothers" in my C9 install, but no, it's not in the C2018 library and nor is it available when you go to the Download Additional Assets link.

As best I can recall it, TechSmith provided it as a bonus pack, quite a while back now. They periodically do that, but quite often the assets concerned are in that pack and that pack only, often because they're intended to promote some third party or other. They don't remain available forever, which is why it's important to back up each download.

That said... I apparently didn't (at a guess because I didn't care for most of them) and although I've scoured my inbox and my archives folder I can't find exactly when they were released.

(Nor can I send them to you because that right is not mine to give.)

But that said, the outfit that created them does offer some free Camtasia assets and it would not surprise me at all if that is one of them. You can sign up for free so you may as well give it a shot and find out:

One other suggestion too; I don't know whether you completely uninstalled your older version of Camtasia, but if you didn't the old library may still be there. In C2018 go to your library, click on the drop-down, and see whether you have an entry like "Camtasia 9.1 (Needs Upgrade)". If the old library is still in your ProgramData folder, you may be able to get it back that way.

Thanks, Mal for your suggestions. I tried the first one but it is not available in their free assets. Your second suggestion doesn't work either because I am on a new computer with a clean install of windows 10. No old library there. But because you identified the name I was able to message eLearning Bros and ask if they still have it available. No reply yet but fingers cross. Again thanks for your help, I owe you one.

Under Motion Graphics
Nine rows down




Just as the name
hexagone-lowerthird02

Hover over that box and a download button should appear.

The page isn't showing any images but the asset download works.

I downloaded it this morning and unzipped it to make sure.
