  • Updated 2 years ago
I have a text which is in PNG format. I want to move it at bottom of my video, It moves from right to left. However this callout does not move smoothly, its so laggy and it looks like it jump instead of a smooth and continuous movement.

any suggestion to make it moves better?
The animation duration is about 20 second

I am using Camtasia 8, the latest version

When you produce the video it will probably be a fluid motion. Try sliding the green and red timeline indicators so that they span the length of that animation.
Then Right click and select produce selection as and see if produces smoothly.

I am not sure if I get what you mean...
But do you mean I increase the length of animation?
even in Timeline it doesnt play fully smooth but when it get rendered it becomes worse

I assume you have a text callout that you've applied an animation to [right to left]

how long is the animation keyframe?

real short animations coupled with large moves can look bad

also, right click on the animation point and look at easing; make sure it is set to "linear"; default easing is set to "auto"; that can give erratic motion to objects 

does that help?
