I know there was a sketch motion in Camtasia 7 and now I cannot find it in C8. Is there some motions I can download?



Thanks, regards, Natasa

OK, here is what I have discovered. Without you asking this question, I never would have noticed this.

Overall, that callout should still be in your Camtasia Studio callout folder. However, it is not showing since it has somehow been removed from the XML file in that same folder.

So, you will need to add it to that document. Here's how:
1. Close Camtasia Studio.
2. Navigate to: C:\Program Files (x86)\TechSmith\Camtasia Studio 8\Media\Studio\Callouts
3. Drag the motioncallouts.xml file to your desktop.
4. Open that document on the desktop with Notepad.
5. Add the following text to the end of the document, before the last line of code (see image below).

   <Callout type="sketch">
      <name>Sketch Motion Scribble</name>
      <sourceFile>anim_scribble.svg</sourceFile>
      <fadeInSeconds>2.00</fadeInSeconds>
      <speedChangeMultiplier>200</speedChangeMultiplier>
      <totalPauseFraction>.2</totalPauseFraction>
   </Callout>



6. Save the document.
7. Drag it back to the original location and overwrite the original file.
8. Reopen Camtasia Studio. That file should now be in the lineup:

It be nice if TechSmith could dream up some more of these things.
