Where did the Exponential Easing Preference Go?

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
Camtasia 8 had a global preference to always use exponential in/out easing for scaling animations. That is missing in Camtasia 9. Can we please get it back or am I missing something?
Currently I have to Right-click and change the animation property for every scale animation.

I don't believe there is a global option for changing the default easing, but you can save some time
by holding the control key and selecting all the animations you want to change your easing on.

Then with all of them selected Right-Click on one of the them and click on "Enable Easing" and change the easing to what you want.

All the selected animations will now have the easing you chose.

I think this is crazy, surely there is an option to change the default option (I can't find it).
Anyone?

I was experimenting with the easing a few days ago and it spawned a question to TechSmith that I've yet to see an answer on.

My testing seems to indicate that Exponential seems to be the default. There seems to be no way to choose "none" if that's what you want.

Cheers... Rick :)

I see you're correct about the Exponential easing. I haven't been using Camtasia much these days.

Linear is the same as choosing None. You can right click and apply None.
I still think it's best to let people chose there own default.That could be handy for certain animations now that behaviors are part of the mix.

Thanks for those comments.
In a lengthy project, it makes sense to have a default easing option for consistency with animations tp save the right click thing all the time...

Typo above. Linear is still the same as none Rick. You cannot right click and select "None".

Ahhh, kind of makes sense. But I think it should be presented as "None", because that's what version 8 offered and would seem to only be logical. ;)

Thanks for the info. Rick :)
