I have Camtasia 2019 for Mac. What is the difference between Smart Focus and Smart Focus at Time? I've searched the site and Google and can't find an answer.

On the Windows version you apply it to selected media.

Or, the entire timeline.

I suspect thats what you're referring to.
I would think its the same thing. But feature parity is not 100%.

I found the video I'm presenting below:

Based on what was depicted in the video, basic "Smart focus" is dropped on the video and it analyzes the video and applies the zooms to places in the video automatically. I believe I've seen before where it uses the mouse or cursor to do this. Places where the mouse kind of "dwells" or hovers briefly are used.

From watching the video, it seems the feature for Smart Focus at Time allows you to choose the spot at which you want a Smart Focus to occur.

Cheers... Rick :)

Rick is correct. "Do some Smart Focus magic right here at this time" as opposed to "put SmartFocus events throughout this whole media"

Is there any way to change the default zoom amount?  Mine does 200% and its always waaay too much.
