how long in duration do you want each picture to be in the video?

set this value in Edit/Preferences/Timing

multi select pictures in bin and add all at one time, or, add 1 then send playhead to end and add another

that will give you no gaps between pictures

you'll probably want to add a transition between the images

if you save a project [what you're working on], you'll get a .tscproj file; this is only good in Camtasia; it is not a video file

to get an MP4, you need to share [produce] to MP4

you can make an MP4 with or without a controller [TechSmith SmartPlayer]

try making a custom production and set MP4 as the type

if you make a video w/controller [recommended], you will also get the MP4 which can be distributed by itself

In looking at the supplied image, I'm wondering if perhaps there is confusion. What seems to be shown are clips added to the Media Bin and not the Timeline. You must now select the images in the Media Bin and drag them down to the timeline across the bottom. They will always have "gaps" in the Media Bin because of the way it works.

Ahhh, I see that if you click and really zoom in on the image, looks like something is on the timeline. Although, it's hard to tell what is there.

Apologies, I was just glancing at the image as it appears before clicking to really zoom it in. And this appearance looks as if you hadn't yet added the images to the timeline. ;)

Cheers... Rick :)

I'm going to expand on what kayakman has already said.

If you change the duration in preferences.
Be aware that you can add a decimal point to break down the timing to tenths of a second. I think around .3 should work well for most stop animations.
Just highlight all the images if they are in the proper filing order and drag them to the timeline as kayakman suggested.
If not you will need to painstakingly add each image to the timeline one at time. Just drag them all onto the same track.
Then, drag them to the left until it contacts the previously added images.



Regards,Joe

You might be able to add all of the images to the timeline.Then, select all of them, right clip and chose "Group". Then right click and chose "Add Clip Speed". That way you can adjust the speed of the entire group of images.
However,based on the frame rate of the video you are going to output, the number of images involved and the number of seconds involved. Mathematically, some images would need to remain onscreen for one frame "more/less" than others to even out the math.
Depending on the animations speed, the end result may look a little jittery.
If it's looks good it may be a faster technique in the long run.
Good Luck
