The Add animation feature allows for linear movement between key frames, but not along a curve. Consider adding the ability to animate media along user defined paths, using anchor points and control handles to create paths along Bezier curves.
I'm presently facing the situation where I have to record in AVI format because the mouse movements aren't recorded in TREC format for me with one application. If I could supply motion paths, I could easily overcome this by just animating the mouse pointer.
Love this idea!
Hello there @kellybellis,
First off, You are posting a lot of good ideas today. A lot of the functionality that you seek is built into high quality video editing programs already. That being said.
Camtasia studio is primarily a high-quality screen recorder. It has the added functionality of adding quizzes as a teaching aid.
That's what sets Camtasia apart from other video editors or screen recorders.
They have added a lot of additional editing functionality. But if you really want to do a lot of high-quality special effects, Camtasia probably shouldn't be on your list.
Don't chop my head off, this is just my take on what Camtasia is all about. It's grown a lot as a video editor. But it will never be like Sony Vegas, Premier Pro, or even Premier Elements for that matter. So if you truly need all the functionality that you are requesting, I wouldn't "wait for or expect" Camtasia to implement all these features.
all it requires is a path template to follow [i.e., a "Yellow Brick Road"], and a little effort
adjusting animations will also allow for a simulation of depth perspective
here is a simple example that involves multiple grouped objects [the aircraft is a photo] ...
