Update on 7sept07:
I’ve decided the “zoom problem” (described in detail in the links at right) is insoluble and have instead changed my video-generation process to work around this glitch by just using the “capture” method rather than the “drag and drop”, which I prefer.
If you are aware of a fix or of a bona fide competitor for Camtasia Studio, please leave a note at the bottom of this page. Thanks.
Articles I still need to write:
- Document the problem with pics and video
- Include my dialogue with Camtasia support
- Report on my experience attempting to do the workaround suggested by Camtasia support
- Compare the two ways of creating a video using Camtasia: screen capture and drag & drop
- Best practice for making a screen capture video, start to finish
- perpare pics, ordered and sized for best capture in ??
- narrate/zoom/annotate with lots of pauses
- pull to camproj and touch up
- Best practice for making a drag/drop video, start to finish
- pre-edit pics to deal with camtasia zoom problem?
- dump pics into camtasia, drag onto timeline in order
- narrate audio
- adjust frame timing
- if you’re doing the camtasia-recommended fix:
- write to avi
- pull avi into a new file
- add title/close/zooms
- if you want to cut in pictures later, repeat these steps
