sheen effect for camtasia

  • Question
  • Updated 1 year ago
Has anyone created a "sheen" effect that animates across their title text in Camtasia?  I see that effect in some online videos out there in cyberspace, and I'd like to create the same effect.  What I mean by a sheen effect is like a bright, semi-transparent diagonal line that glides across text to make it seem like the text sheens in the light.  Thanks!

Hi there

Perhaps the link below might have something you like?

Note that I'm in no way affiliated with this site. I just saw it after I saw your thread.

Aside from that, perhaps look at http://www.videoblocks.com or similar sites.

Cheers... Rick :)

I think he is looking for something like using an After Effects masking effect.

Most of the effects that I have been creating on Camtasia 9 relate to moving, resizing, and rotating shape graphics. (Something like that of the link you provided Rick.)

Camtasia would be more powerful if we have some masking effect.

Yes, David, this is what I'm looking for.  Unfortunately, I don't have/know After Effects.  I suspected that this glint effect that I want was something created outside of Camtasia.

I use both Camtasia and premiere.  I have used a site called pond5.com. They have preset animations with text paths and effects. Camtasia doesn't have the depth or the horsepower to do what you are asking.  It does a decent job of moving text around but it would be nice to have the a simple text glow effect. I have used Pond5.com to get premade background files and then dropped text over the top of it in Camtasia.   https://www.pond5.com/stock-video-footage/1/backgrounds-for-text.html#1/2063/resolutions:HD1080,back...

Hello again - I'm not sure if you are still seeking this, but I just saw an email message announcing something that may fit what you are looking for. When I saw it, I remembered this thread. So dug until I found it so I could share it.
