Timothy, Sorry, no. This maintenance release was to address some critical issues our customers were hitting. Copy/paste of zoom animations is on our list of possible enhancements for a future release. Your request is noted.

I can't seem to download this update. I'm using 7.1.1 and I'm registered, but each time I attempt to download (clicking on the check for updates menu) nothing happens. No error message... nothing.

Is anyone else having a problem installing this (that is, the 8.0.4 update) on Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)? I was just trying to record something with the PowerPoint add-in (currently on 8.0.2 build 918) and found that it wasn't saving the recording. Camtasia had notified me on startup that there was a new version available so I downloaded that (missed the 8.0.3 one, if that's important) and tried to install it to see whether that would sort it out.

Three times now I've had the "copying files" dialog hit 100% but then the "Installing the features that you requested" dialog just sits there with no movement indefinitely; by which I mean 10 to 15 minutes before I killed it each time. The first couple of times I tried it as a standard installation, the last time Run As Administrator (with a reboot between each attempt) but none of them made a difference.

I used all of the standard defaults except for the path location; since I use a SSD as my boot drive I install apps to a standard HDD under the path F:\Program Files (x86)\TechSmith\Camtasia Studio 8.

On the plus side the 8.0.2 Powerpoint add-in seems to have recovered from whatever was causing it nervous exhaustion so I don't actually NEED the 8.0.4 update, but obviously it would be nice to have the option.

Versions 8.0.3 and 8.0.4 had some important updates to the handling of project files. We are recommending these updates for all users.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the install. The best way for us to help you is for you to open a ticket with our TechSupport staff by submitting a question at http://support.techsmith.com

Someone will follow up with you by email to help troubleshoot further.

Well, I finally got it to work. I shut down everything, rebooted, and ran the update as administrator. That was at 10:45 this morning. Same thing happened, it said that it had copied all of the files, then the main dialog popped up with no display of any progress. And so it sat. And sat. And sat. At one point I noticed that it said zero seconds to go, but it continued to sit there. I did notice the occasional flicker from the HDD light but that could have been anything; although I had no apps running there are always a stack of services in the background. After half an hour I decided that I'd have to raise the support ticket after all. At 11:25, 40 minutes after go-time, the dialog suddenly burst to life and started showing progress. The install completed and Camtasia opened.

If anyone else gets similarly stuck, maybe an overnight install is the way to go.

When I install this new updated version it is not installing correctly and I cannot open the Camtasia Studio Recorder. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Just an Update. I uninstalled and reinstalled using the :Run As Administrator" option and all is well and working now. maybe this will help others. If you install it on Windows 7 like I did then use the Run As Administrator and it should work better. Have a Happy Holiday Season!

"Flash/HTML5 controller controls should now auto-hide when appropriate"

Thank you for that quick fix. Now I am really enjoying CS8, from start to finish.

Regards,

You'll find some numeric controls in the Visual Properties tab. It's not the same as CS7. It'd be helpful if you could describe what you're trying to do, and we may be able to help you find the best method in CS8 to accomplish this.
