Reverse page turn in Camtasia studio 9

  • 1
  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
In Camtasia studio 9, among the transitions, we can do page turn, page roll, etc., all of which simulate a page turn for a book written in English (or similar languages), starting from the right hand side. Is it possible to reverse this effect, to do a page turn/roll starting from the left-hand side?

No, that is unrolling. I'd like to "roll" (or turn) from the left-hand side.

To my knowledge there is no way to adjust direction or change parameters of any of the transitions.

Although, perhaps you have some images of maybe a book where the pages actually do look like they are turning. I'm wondering if you might produce a small segment where the page turn occurs, then pop it into an application such as Adobe Premiere Pro and reverse it. Then produce that back out and insert it as a media clip to provide the effect you are wanting?

I think there is also a technique created and described by Kayakman for doing this. Lemme see if I can find it and I'll pop a link below.

Cheers... Rick :)

The use case I have is a transition from a "title page" with titile text coming in from the left, then moving out to the right. As the text is moving out, I want to transition from the title page to the main part of the video. Since the text is moving from left to right, a similarly moving transition would be a natural choice.

Title text "Réponse courte" originally comes from the left. As it leaves to the right, I would have liked to do a turn/roll from the left, as it would fit in naturally with the moving title.

Have you tried the transition "Slide Right"?

Slide right is what I do ... but it does not look nearly as nice as a page turn would.

That is unrolling, which is not the same as rolling from the left ... which would be natural say, when reading Japanese Anime books. I guess I'll stick with "slide right".

can you post an example showing what is is you want?

your initial post indicated you wanted a page turn from left; that is what is happening in my above screencast

I cannot show an example ... because I cannot create one. The page roll/turn is based on the idea of grabbing a page from the right edge, dragging it back towards the spine of the book on the left. The reverse effect I would like would be to grab a page from the left edge, dragging it back towards the spine of the book located on the right. The existing animation can be thought of as something like http://previews.123rf.com/images/robb.... What I want instead of something https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/blank...

"Can you produce a video of the thing you can't produce a video of so that I can see an example of what it is you are unable to produce?" What kind of idiotic question is that?!!!

Actually it's a perfectly reasonable question.

What was being asked wasn't for Andre to create a video using what he is incapable of creating. We all know that's a silly exercise.

What was being asked was for an example of the effect as seen elsewhere. Created by someone else. Likely using different tools.

Sometimes it becomes troublesome to "see" something being described in text and if you have seen it elsewhere and can point someone to where you have seen it, it's quite helpful in the end.

As I've heard elsewhere. If a picture is worth a thousand words. A video is worth a thousand pictures.

Cheers... Rick :)

Have you tried putting your pages in reverse order, use the page transition between each page , then use kayakman's technique to record the canvas while sweeping the play head on timeline from right to left.
I just did a 2 page sample with that technique and it plays with transition in reverse like you want.
Then if you are narrating, add that to newly created video.
It is not the corner turn you want but it does seem to work. Maybe you can find a page corner turn transition and try that technique.
