Two questions about Camtasia 9

[Camtasia 9 on Win 8.1 Pro]
I have 2 questions:
1) I need to have subtitles for projects I export as a .mp4 file. Currently, only .wav and .html files show the closed captions. I could export the captions as a .srt file but I want my users to be able to see the captions without any further actions on their part. Is there a way to do it in Camtasia?
2) I want to pixelate a portion of a recording and pixelisation should stick with the portion. Currently, I am having to pixelate the portion frame by frame. I'm sure there is an easier way to do this but how?

  • frustrated that I'm having to spent an inordinate amount of time trying to do seemingly easy editing tasks.

You can do both.

1. You can burn in your captions doing a "Custom video Production"
The main steps are depicted below.


2. There is a Pixelate Callout you can apply.
A Blur callout is directly above it.

Thanks Joe! 
The setting worked for the captions. 
I got the blur and pixalate callouts but I what really want is to pixallate the same portion while in motion. I am referring to a similar conversation on the forum. Just wanted to know if there is an easier way to do it.

Unfortunately, there is no easier way without a motion tracker.

You could track the motion by adding animation to the pixelated section. At least then you will only need to move the blur box when the item moves.
