How can i move a clip on Video1? i can delete parts of it, split it, but NOT MOVE IT! no combination of click&drag + modifier keys allows this. i need to have a blank 9sec spot at the beginning, for example.

I'm sorry you are having trouble.

The Camtasia Studio timeline does not allow you to have gaps on the video track.

As a workaround for this, you can add a black image or titleclip to the timeline to fill that area. I know this is just a workaround and doesn't solve your real problem which is needing more control over where you place your video.

Product Management and development is aware of this limitation and a need for a better workflow.

Thank you for using Camtasia Studio!

Here's a tutorial that shows you how to add a blank title clip at the beginning and/or end of your video. You can then add a transition between the clips to make it fade in. (2:19)

Hope this helps.

What I had to do for this was delete the clip and then place it again anew where I wanted it.
