Need callout to move with the screen

I have made a video of some instructions for my software.  Displayed on the screen is some sensitive information that I want to blur/pixelate.  I would be all good with the callouts except that the screen scrolls in my video, and the sensitive information with it.  How can I make the pixelate callout follow a specific part of the video?

Hi there

What I do in this case is to click the callout to select it, then open the Visual Properties tab. I generally place the callout at the start position, then move the playhead to the end position. At that point I click the Add Animation button. Then drag the callout to where you need it. This should display a "ramp" indication of the callout movement. You adjust the speed by making the ramp longer to slow it down and shorter to speed it up.

Cheers... Rick :)

Hello, yes what Rick suggested is right on... but in some cases, depending on the scroll, (in attempting to keep the blur in sync with your sensitive info) you may need to add multiple animations.

I have this same issue with many of my videos... I asked Techsmith support... there's no other easy way.

Best..
