when the quiz appears in Camtasia, the background video is darkened and the quiz appears over the video with only the question and answer choices highlighted over the video window. See attached image quiz1.jpg.
We want to be able to provide a quiz that uses the imagery in the video. In this simple example, we have a video showing images of a variety of animals. We want to test the student's knowledge by showing an image and asking which animal is shown. In the example, the top portion of the video window is an image of a monkey, and below is a true/false question asking if the image shows a monkey. The question appears below the image, but the image is darkened, which makes it difficult to view.
This is a simple example, but applies to many subjects. The method of teaching is to show examples of items and provide details about them as the video progresses. At different times in the training, a question appears with an image. The student should be able to identify the image and answer the question pertaining to it.
It could be identifying an artwork, an instrument, a president, etc. But if the image is darkened, it is too difficult to discern details of the image.
So, provide an option for the video settings to keep the background at normal viewing, instead of darkened. We created a test video with a quiz in the timeline in the middle of showing an image for the question in the timeline, as you can see from this timeline segment.
After the first quiz, the video timeline shows the tiger image and asks the next question:
The question appears with the image as we want, but it is darkened, which we don't want.
