I would like to know what video softwrae was used in conjuction with Camtasia to develop "What’s New in Camtasia Studio 8". If Camtasia was used how did you make the vignette occur? BTW, great job on on Camtasia Studio 8.

Hi! The What's New video was made with a number of tools, including Camtasia Studio 8 and After Effects.

By vignette, are you referring to the soft black vignette around the edge of the video? If so...it should be possible. Let me play around with it for a bit, and I'll let you know what I come up with.

Hi Jeffrey,

Ok, I whipped up a test image to see if I could get a decent vignette effect in Camtasia Studio 8, and the good news is, you definitely can! If you know how to make a vignette effect in your favorite image editor, simply do so at dimensions that make sense for your video, save as a PNG (make sure to leave the background transparent), import into Camtasia Studio 8, and then you can tweak the fine details by adjusting the opacity on the image file for the vignette.

If you (or anyone else) is not sure how to make a vignette, I put one together and I'll attach it as an image. The vignette is 1920 x 1080 in dimensions, so you should be able to use it all the way up to the best HD resolution on most cameras. If your video is smaller, feel free to adjust the size to fit. I set the opacity for the image to 60%, which looked good for the video I was using, but you'll definitely want to play around with it.



(hopefully this attaches; if not, I'll upload it to Screencast.com)
