Zoom in on a part of an image/video

I would need to do some zooming but only on a portion of an image/video that is used in the timeline. - this feature does not seem to be integrated, and I think it would be a great evolution! I used this option in a smaller tool (Dmo Builder) and found it of great use - when the image/video is not inserted at its full scale, I could indicate which part of it I needed to zoom in: the part was zoomed in at 100% so it was not deteriorated and the rest of the image kept its original scale and was automatically greyed (as when using Camtasia highlight). Wanting to reproduce this kind of effect in Camtasia I had to integrate the part to zoom in as a second image with a greater scale and add an highlight effect, so this was 3 times more complicated ans less smooth in the end. The fact is this is something I use a lot for the tutorial videos I edit, so I guess it would help others too.  Otherwise I'm quite happy with this latest version of Camtasia!
Many thanks for reading.

I definitely agree with your request. If a competitor can do it why Techsmith could not add this useful feature ?
We count on you Techsmith !
