I would love the ability to save custom behaviors independently. If I create or edit a behaviour, i would like to save it as it's own behaviour in my library just the same as the existing 9 template behaviours in V9.

That is a very nice idea, and I really love it. You would save hours and hours of video editing, saving custom behaviors.

I remember when I was talking via webcam with Troy and the Techsmith people, last June or May, don't remeber, via GoToMeeting, I explained something similar, but with zooms.

Also having the ability to save custom zooms, because most of the time I work with five zooms... up left corner, up right corner, down left corner, down right corner, center.

It would be great to have the possibility to save those zooms, as presets, so I don't have to waste time moving the slider every time I want to get a zoom... I would have them already customized, and I only have to do one click... so...

1. Saving the behaviors independently is very necessary

2. Saving customized zooms independently is very necessary

And... I am sure, some people would love to automate more complex tasks... the word that comes to my mind is MACROS...

3. It would be great, Camtasia can record a macro, and then play it with a simple shortcut, getting total automation in any process

Hi there Sharyn!

We are investigating quite a few improvements to behaviors in the future, and the ability to save customized behaviors is the top thing on that list! We agree that being able to save is pretty necessary to make working with behaviors enjoyable and efficient.
