So friends in this video I explained through as to what Camtasia is a lot it can do for you and how important it is for you to learn to use Camtasia if you are a content creator or a training developer. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 3. About the interface of Camtasia 2021: Hi friends. In this video, I'll upgrade tool with the interface of Camtasia 200, 201. When you are going to be using any application or software, it is very important to understand the interface so that you exactly know where the Tulsa, where do you assemble things, how do you save whatever you've created and the like? So let's get into it when you launch Camtasia to the row 2. Well, this is the kind of splash panel you will get initially. It has a lot of things like if you see this iconic, she's new projects. So if you click on this, you can straightaway create a new product. Then you can also create a new project from template. You also have the option of launching new recording right from here. And you can also open a project. Right below here. You will get the list of all the recent projects which you have worked on so far so that you can stay there and select one, whichever you want to work with and launch it so that you're there as far as getting started with concern, then you have this Learning tab. When you click on it, you will be able to access a whole lot of learning videos rich camtasia has created. They are very nice videos. They quickly get you on the job. Then white actors tutorial, which I've created to see what they have done is they have kept that in mind and their radios only launch you into how to working with that tool. We are going to be in this scores creating videos which will explain to you everything threadbare, and also give you certain ideas how to go about working with and creating with Camtasia to the R21. Then you have this W help. And from here, you can get online help, you can get community support, you can get tech support, you can get keyboard, shortcuts poster also. Now having understood this, let us get back to get started and let's launch a new product. So once you launch the new project, you now have the interface right in front of you, as you can see. And this is the place where you are going to be editing your videos or even creating videos right from scratch. Now here one thing that you need to understand its Camtasia is to software combined into 11 is these are Corridor which you can invoke by clicking here Record button about this I shall be discussing in a separate video altogether. And then you have this screen or interference which you are seeing where you edit your screen recordings which you have captured, or you can even create radial right from scratch. So in this video, I'll only be expanding to worry about the editor interface. We shall talk about the recorder in a separate video altogether. So coming to the interface right on top, on the left side, you will see a menu. When you hover over it and click on it. Then the panel which comes up, you can go through it. I don't think I should be describing all this. It's quite self explanatory. You can just browse through it. You hover over it, and you can see what options are available. Most of the options you will also find somewhere on the interface as we keep on discussing. Now, on the left here we have a panel. And these panels will take you to variance banners, which are very useful for working with Camtasia to the R21. Know firstly, the media panel. When you click on it, you'll get this media panel here. You can import media. So any media which you want to work with, you will have to import it initially how we are going to be working with media. When I shall explain to you in a separate video all together. Not then you have the library. In the library, you have many assets which Camtasia gives you for free. Let me just share a few, let's say buildings. And let me take this building from here and place it here because I'll require you to experience a few more things. So when you do this and now you go to media, you'll find that this media is now available in the medium. And similarly editing, which you'll important to Camtasia will also be available in the media bin. Now, then there the panel favorites. Now this panel includes all behaviors or visual effects, whichever your market favorites. Then we have a panel of annotations, red, that are many pre-bid annotations available which you can use in your project. Then we have transitions. There are many transactions and Camtasia. In fact, they've added almost about 75 for maybe 90 or transitions in this particular new version of Camtasia. So when you start working with Camtasia, you will relay. That is a very, very powerful tool. Then we have behaviors. Now these are preset, pre-programmed modules, but you can apply it to your clip to get some kind of an effect. Then we have the animation span. And using this, we can animate the objects. We have the cursor effects. We can apply certain personal effects to our cursor's. Then we have a panel of a voice narration. We can regard Ys. Using this panel. We have a panel which lets us applies that an audio effect to our audio within our project. Then we also have a panel for visual effects. For this panel will help you to use visual effects in your project. You also have the option of creating interactivity by using quizzes. And then you also have the option of creating captions. So friends, I explained to you all the other tabs or which are available, which launched certain panels and which you can use to work with your product. Right here in the center black space where we have this clip art available is called the canvas. This is where you are going to be assembling all your elements and working with them in Camtasia. Right? Now, coming down to this bit in the center, you have this edit tool. Now you can use this edit mode to move, resize, and rotate media on the canvas. So once we have this selected and you click on it, you can now move it here I shall discuss the edit tools and great detail in a separate video altogether. Then you have the hand tool. Now using the hand tool you can move the canvas. Then you have the crop tool. Using this, you can crop the assets which you place onto the canvas. And then you have this drop-down list from here. You can resize your canvas and let's say we make it to 35 percent or we make it too now 25 percent. So as per the department, you can either increase or decrease the size of your canvas. Let's fit it to the area. Now here you also have the option to detach Canvas. When you click on it, your Canvas get detached. Maybe you require this arraignment while working with a project. Along here we go and we find now attach carvers, Let's do that. Then you have this option of Project Settings. Click on that. And you can change canvas dimensions. There are many options available to work through it in your own time. In fact, I will be explaining to you also in a different video. You can change the color of the canvas. If you want to have a panel, you can do that. You can change the frame rate and you can also auto normalize the loudness for if you tick mark here, it is now auto normalized or you can control it on your own while editing. I normally like to Cupid checked and then you can click on Apply, I'll cancel it. Top right corner is the option which lets you access your account. You can sign in and sign out of TechSmith. Then you'll have a drop-down list where you can download more assets. Now this is for the exporting. Using this tab, you can export your file to various locations. I'll be discussing this again in great detail later on. But you must understand right now in this video, I'm explaining to you what is where I'm not telling you how they will be used, that I will be doing in great detail as we progress in the course. Here we have the properties panel which can be either closed or opened by using Properties tab. When you have an object selected, it has various properties as mentioned here. And that will differ for everything, every item which will bring onto your canvas, including behaviors and effect which you apply. I've got property which can be changed using the properties panel. It'll keep that in mind. Here you have the timeline. This is where you put your objects in time and space on this timeline in the sequence in which you want them to appear. And much more can be done in the timeline which we shall discuss when we work with the timeline in detail. Now here we have the radius play buttons, which let us play with. Let us also go back or go forward and the like. So friends. In this video, I gave you an insight into the interface of Camtasia 200, 201. Remember, there is much more to learn and we shall be doing that as we progress in this course. But you need to understand this interface very well so that when we are discussing something in the course, exactly know which area are we talking about at, what is it going to be doing? So do kindly go through this video a number of times to get acquainted with the interface. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 4. About the Media Bin: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to learn about the media bin. Now what is media? When any asset which you want to use in your presentation, you need to first bring it into media Ben or import into media will know the files which the media bin supports or Camtasia supports hard for movie. It supports the AVI files, MPD files and PNG files, WAV files, QuickTime move files, and SWF files. For its own native files, it supports DOT direct and dot camera. For images if supports BMP, GIF or JPEG and pink. And for audio it supports Wave, MP3, WMA, and M for a. So it doesn't show that when you are importing the files in Camtasia, you should follow the file formats. Now to import to media bin, you need to click on media. And then you have options either to click here to import media, or you can click on the Plus button here. Let's do it from import media from here. And then you navigate to the directory from where you want to pick up the media. We're going to import few images which pertain to COVID-19 because I'm creating a presentation on COVID-19 being the latest issue in the world. So you'll select this and then you'll select the others by pressing the Control key and then open it. So all these will now open up in media Ben as you can see. Or you can also import 5 some library. So if you click on library, you have folders. And let's say we want to pick up few images from this people. And maybe this one, all that you need to do is drag this onto your state and it gets imported into the media bit. Let's go to media bin. And there you'll find this image. Now I don't require this at the moment. So just click on it. You can also import music tracks from the library. So let's go down here to lab ready, close this, and go down to, Let's say you want this music track, you have to drag it to the timeline for it to be coming into media. Ben, we are going to drop it and bring it and put it on this track here. And if we go to media when we'll see that this has been added here, Let's now delete this. Now, having imported the asset to your media bent, you can bring it to timeline and one material that either grab it and drag it and place it, or you can just click on a place where you want to play it to be a right-click on that image. And then it had two timeline at blade. You'll click on it and it will get added onto the first track. Let's delete this. Now a few things I want to explain to you, and that is how to manage the media. But first of all, you can sort it by the options are listed here by name. So if we click on it, see you by name or two got sorted out. You can sort it by type. You can sort it by duration. You can sort it by size, you can sort it by dimensions, and you can sort it by date added. Now you also have the option of sorting it in ascending or descending order. So this is one aspect of managing your media bin. Now the second aspect which I want to explain to you is how you want to view your media. So you have options here. If you click on this, this is one option that if you see one on top of the other, then you have this option where you see two on a row. And then you can see four in a row. And you can also see many in a row. You can also have the ListView. So if you click here, you go to the list view. I always prefer to have this because I want to see what media I want to drag onto the state or to the timeline. So click here, and this is what it is. Now to manage media, you can also right-click and you'll get a flyout menu which add to timeline at playhead, which I just demonstrated in case you want this media which you drag them from your hard drive to be added to the liability. You can add it to the laboratory, you can preview it. You can update the media with a new media. You can delete the media. You can also delete any unused media. That means in case some media has not been used in your presentation, you can just delete that. You can open the file location by clicking here when from where you drag the media. And you can also view the details. Let's see the details of this. It gives you the size modified when one other dimensions colors, and what format of the file. And similarly, if you do that for an audio file, it will also give you the details of what is the length of the blade or the size, when was it modified? And what do you the format of this audio. You can also select unused media and you can sort by which I already explained to you on top. Same options are mentioned here too, right, friends. So in this video, I gave you an insight into what media, when and why do the required then I explain to you how to import the assets into your media. Ben and I also explained to you how you can manage the media Ben. Just last one aspect. There are two ways of putting your assets in media when to use. You can grab the relevant media and drag it onto stage. Then you can scale it. And we'll find that wherever the playhead was, that is where the media gets added. You can move it if you require. Another way that you drag the media, especially moves it drags and found a way to track on your timeline, and it gets added. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 5. About the canvas: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to learn about the Canvas. Canvas is a place where we assemble all the objects which we require in the project. And we have somebody in a manner that they are visible in time and space on the timeline, will discuss about the timeline in a subsequent video. Now this is the Canvas or you can see indicated by the red box. And the area which is outside here in gray. This is the area which is known as the inactive area. So whatever objects are on the Canvas, the other ones which are going to be included in the movies and whatever is outside the canvas in inactive area will not be included. We can place objects on the canvas from the media bin. This is the medial one right now it is the weekend. You can import things from your hard drive or from any other place into the media bin. Or we can also import content from the library. So let's do it from the library for this video. And let's go down here and let's pick up a building. Let's say we want this. The, what you need to do is grab it and then drag it onto the canvas. And there it is now visible to us. Also notice here that once we place it on the canvas here, this object is also visible on the timeline here. We'll talk about the timeline in much greater detail later on. The moment we place an object here, you will notice that there is a bounding box with you all around that particular object. Using this, you can scale and rotate the object. Or let's say if you go to this corner here, you can now scale it to the side you want. And in the center there are handled using which you can rotate the object. Now this will be handy when we start pasting objects, multiple objects, and making a story out of it, Let's Plays one more object on the screen, and that's going to be, let's close it. Let's go down to transport. And we're going to pick up this god and bring it up here and place it here and then resize it. Say this car is also gone onto its own track. Now, I want to explain to you these tools which are here. Let's de-select first all items. Now in case we want to work with something, we need to click on this green tool and then click on the object. Now this tool is known as the edit tool. Once we click on an object, we can now, as I explained to you earlier, we can resize it and we can rotate it. Then we have this tool, which is the hand tool, click on it. And now we can move the canvas and place it wherever we want to have an object selected. If we go down here, this is the crop tool. Click on it, see how the color of the bounding box here change and also the handles has now become a square instead of circle. So now we can grab this and we can crop the image as we want to or what you object to this. And in case we want, we can drag it up and bring it back to its normal state. So this is what the crop tool actually does to the right of it. We have a drop-down menu. Using this, we can zoom in and out of the canvas. Let's say we click on 25 percent or look, the Canvas has gone down inside. Here. We want to make it led us as 75 percent. It fills and goes beyond this gauge itself. The best practice as I think, is to keep it at 50 percent so that everything on the Canvas is visible to you. At the same time, there is adequate space in the inactive area, just in case you want to play certain items on the inactive area to be used later. You can select multiple objects like you press shift and you click on this card. Now both these objects have been selected and you can move them together. You can also group them. If you right-click, you get this optional group. Click on it and now see the objects are grouped. You can move them wherever you want to. You can again ungroup them. Go down here you have this option of Ungroup. Click and you have ungrouped object. You can also arrange the object. Let's say that we want this God to be placed behind the building or the house. You can right-click and from this array and you can send it to back. And there I got gone back. Just lift it up a bit so that it looks more realistic. And if you want to bring it back to the front, right-click, go down to arrange and click on bring to front. And there it is. So friends. In this video I explained to you about the Canvas. There are few aspects like detach Canvas and predict settings, which I shall explain to you in another video. By now, you've also rely that Canvas is there pain is where we bring in all the objects and place it there and then laid out in time and space on the timeline. So by combining the canvas and the timeline, we build a story for our project. So that's it for this video. Thanks for listening, Take care, and happy learning. 6. More about the Canvas: Hi friends. In this video, I'll explain to you a few more aspects which will help you to use the Canvas in Camtasia. Now when you click here, you get the drop-down list about the Zoom aspects I have already explained to know, Let's talk about this detach Canvas. When you click on this tab, your Canvas get detached as you are seeing here. And you can turn the side of the canvas to your requirement. You can also make it to full screen. Once you make it to full screen, it gives you more working space. You have lot of inactive area available and you have built which you can increase the size of. Now you can zoom to fill that measure Canvas fills the entire stage. You can zoom out. Rather do more. Yes. So you can keep on zooming out as I'm explaining to you, then you can also reattach Canvas right from you. All you can exit full screen. Let's exit full screen. The Canvas is still unattached. Here. You also have the option to reattach Canvas or you can right-click and attach Canvas. But let's use this and let's attach canvas. And let's set this to 50 percent. And other aspects which I would like to explain to you in the project settings. If you click on it, you get this panel here, using which you can change various settings as far as your canvas is concerned. The first, the Canvas dimensions, by default it is the ones that are 800 P HD format, that is 19, 200 in blue, 1, 0, 0. If you click, you get a drop-down list. Now many options are here. I'm not going to read them out for you, go through it. Basically, it is designed to meet the requirement of any kind of device for which you are creating your video. And there are many options. They include iPhones and iPads. They include widescreen dimension. So go through them and choose the one which best meets your requirement. You can also customize the Canvas site. Here you have width. You can use the up and down arrow key, then change the dimensions. Similarly, height, you can change it as per the requirement. You can also turn the Gullah of Canvas. So if you click here, you get this panel using which you can change the gelato Fu Panda was, Let's say you want to have it blue. Well, we can do that. Any kind of color you can choose from. I prefer to work in black, so I'm going to go back to black. Then frame rate, you have four options for frame rate, 25 frames, frames per second, 30, 50, and 60 frames per second. 30 seems to be the most standard, but you are most welcome to use any one of these as per the requirement of your project, I recommend you go through the help files of Camtasia to understand the frame rates. Well, then you have this auto normalized loudness. If you have this checked, whatever you have the caudate in terms of audio, Camtasia is going to normalize that after analyzing your input and give you from which viewpoint the best output. If you want to have full control over that and set your own settings, then you can uncheck it. I prefer to leave it at auto. That gives me quite good relatives and even click on Apply. Once you have done that, I'll cancel it for the moment. So friends in this video, I explained to you a few more aspects regarding the canvas which will help you in working with your products. And that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 7. Timeline : Overview: Hi friends. In this video, I'll explain to you about the timeline. The timeline is one of the most important components of Camtasia. This is what we call the timeline, as you can see by the red bounding. Or the timeline basically comprises of a scale, as you can see here, and tracks on these facts, you can layout the objects, such as music clips, videos, or images in time and space, one after the other. The way you would like them to appear on the Canvas. And this is how you build a movie. Now the timeline has a scalar you can see here and this KB that truly of time which has elapsed. So as the blade know playhead is this object here, moves on the timeline. It is going to reveal the object below it. Now before I can actually explain it to you in detail, let me just put certain elements on the tracks. So I have a few, few elements on the media when I'll drag them down onto the timeline. First of all, I love music clip. I'll place it here. Then I'll place one or two of these images. So here we have placed on the timeline music clip, which occupies and spans across some time. Also we have to image clips which are also spanning across the timescale. We can increase or decrease the time of images by dragging them like this. We can increase the span of time which they will cover, how we can reduce it. We can do that to any kind of clip. Remember that this kind of a change of duration cannot be applied to music because that had been recorded to play for a given amount of time. And it cannot also be applied to a video clip. So it can basically be applied only to static objects like images. And what happens is that once you have placed various clips onto the timeline, they are going to play at the given time interval as and when the playhead moves over them. So let me demonstrate this. Let's play clip. So you must have rely that images are appearing at a given time as I place them onto the timeline. Similarly, the music is also playing based on where the playhead is passing over the timeline. And now there are certain other components which are part of the timeline. The first one, I would like to expand it, the scale here. Now this scale shows us the time which has elapsed. So add this play head moves. It is covering time and more about all this as we progress in the course. Now, then we have tracks. Here. On the left side we have tracks. And we can add as many tracks as possible. Tracks or something like layers. Using this, you can stack objects one over the other. The way you want to use them. We will go into more detail of the tracks in a separate video. Now just above the tracks, we have this icon here. Now this shows our height quiz and markers. So if you click on this, we get another drop-down list. Using this, you can select markers or quizzes. These two aspects I'll be explaining to you in detail in a separate video that altogether Let's close it for the time being. Then just over the timeline, on the top left, we have a set of tools. These tools can be used to edit objects on the timeline. Then we have this slider here, using which we can increase the width of the timeline or decrease the width of the timeline as per our requirement, this is useful when you want to work with and edit the objects on the timeline. Part of timeline is this player here using which we play the timeline. So if we clear this play head is now moving and it displays whatever object is below it, right? Trends. And this is what is basically the timeline and various components which comprise the timeline. So in this video, I gave you a very brief overview of the timeline. We are going to discuss mode about the tracks and the tools and the player as we progress in the course and in coming videos. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 8. Working with tracks: Hi friends. In this video, I'll explain to you how to use and manage tracks. It's a very important component of the timeline and we must understand how to use it. So here on the left side are the tracks. We can add and remove tracks as we require them. So to be able to work with an object, you need to add it on tracks. So let's say I require a movie clip in my project. So I'm going to drag it on and it goes on lecture TO track one. Now I want to add another clip or an image to the tracks saw from the media clip, we can drag it directly to the timeline and place it. And I'll see a new track has now been created. We can also directly add an object to the canvas and it is going to get added to the track. So let's do that. And then once we have added an element with a track, we can also move it in time and space the way I'm doing it right now. So you must have no rely that tracks, keep on getting added as we add objects to it, we can also move and place objects on the same track. Like I can grab this object here and I can move it to this track here. Now, another point which you need to understand it that tracks get stacked in a zed order. What it implied it, that you can layer them one over the other. And if you have an object, let's say I include this here. And I move my play head, I can see this object now. But if I placed another object on a track above it and my play head is over it. Then the element which is on the top track or higher track, it going to be visible and it will hide the elements on the track below. Now this needs to be understood. Or let's bring this object later, say to the same track. Now you'll find that there are gaps between these tracks or not, they can be taken care of. I'll explain about that in a bit. So when you have a look at these tracks, there are three icons which are grayed out on each track. For this is disabled track. That means media on this track will be locked for editing, will not be included in preview or final video. If you want to do that, you can do it. Also when you hide a track or disable a track, that track will not be visible on the canvas. Let's make it visible. Let me move this here. Now, this object here is on track 3, therefore T of hiding the object and tried to, if I disable this track. And then now I can see objects on the track below. Let me undo this. Now here we have something known as enabled magnetic track. So we can use this to enable, to automatically remove spaces between media on this track. We're on track to, we have in fact at B first. So this here on track two, we have two elements. And then a gap between, if we don't want this gap, we can go down here to track two and click on Enable magnetic track. If I click on it, see how the gaps have now got removed, then we also have this option of lost track. Now once we locked the track, media on track will be locked for editing. So if I look at, I will not be able to edit anything on this track. So these are very useful options which are available within the tracks. Let us now do over this. Once your magnetic track is on, Whenever we will bring in something to this track, it is going to always latch on to the POS tag. You cannot undo that. So if I click on this, now, we can move it away. Now this needs to be understood for better management of your elements using the tracks. If you right-click on any of these tags, you'll get a menu. So using this, you can insert the tracks either above or below. Let's say we want to insert a track below this track. I'm going to click on it. And there are empty track has got at it. Let's right-click on this. Then you can remove the track. If you click on it, this track has now got deleted. Rightly again on this, you have this option to move the track down. Now if I click on this, it moves below the track. These are all very important aspects of being able to manage your tracks and assets on the timeline while creating a movie or while editing a movie. Then you have this option of select all media on track. If you click on it, or media on this crack gets elected. In fact, let me try this out with track three. Select all media on track. So all these free media, they have now got selected. Let's right-click. Now here you can also enable solo Track. Do that. What this does is now only this track if others have been disabled, you can now carry out editing on just this track. Now this is a great time-saver. We have options of doing the same thing otherwise, but this becomes a great time-saver as right-click. And we can also disable all solo tracks. There it is. We can also rename track. So here we have this option of renamed track, and now we can change the names. So let's say we want to call it or birds. And there the name has changed. Now you can also grab hold of tracks and increase the width of the track to fit in the name of the track, should you require to do that? Let's go back. Another option to manage your track is that you can, by using this plus sign, Yeah, You can add onto tracks. So there we have added a track. You can right-click and if you want to remove tracks, you can do that or you can use this. Remove all empty track. Let me first remove this track. Now let me right-click and let me insert track below. And here, let me also insert a track above this. So we have two tracks available to us, which are right now empty. Let's say that we want to remove all empty tracks. We can right-click and we have this option of removing all empty tracks. Click on it, and both did get removed. So friends, in this video, I explained to you how to use and manage tracks, which is a very important aspect of creating your footage or content using Camtasia. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 9. Timeline : Tools: Hi friends. And this video, I'll explain to you how to use the tools which are available on the left and top of the timeline. Let us see what are these tools. First of all, you have the undo button, then you will have the Redo button. You have the gut button, you have the copy button. If you have the best button, you have this split button and you have the add exported frame button. That's a camera icons. These tools do exactly what their name implies and I just explained to you how to use it while editing your reduce. What I'm talking about the school that in the undo and redo buttons a bit later. Let's first talk about this dot here on this timeline, I have an audio clip. Let me first disassemble this track and I'm going to play this. I just have God has cleaned and add a few more effects. So here, there was some kind of disturbance, which I don't want to be part of this video. So I can just select this area, the 30AM doing, and then go down here and cut this. And that portion has now got deleted. So repeat again, a few affects you have experienced. So that is how you can use the Cut tool or next to it, we have the icon which is copy, and then we have this icon which they've piece. So let's say that this is they made which I've got it selected. I want to copy it. So you just click on this icon. And then you can click on the icon to paste whatever you've copied. And this will get pasted where your playhead. So let's do that. And now it's gone below here. We can drag it up and place it here. So that is what you can do with the copy and paste tool. And now that we've got this image here is not looking very good for the silhouette. I want to explain to you that we can right-click and we can delete this item from here, that it's got delete. If we still want this item, then we can undo what we did for, for that. We can go down here to the Undo icon and click on it. And there's what we had deleted, had now three or 10 by 10, we decided that no, this should not be here. We can go down to the readable button and click on this. And that picture gets deleted from Nile explained to the use of the Split button. Here we have a radio clip, which is going well beyond what I require. So I want to split it somewhere here. So you need to first position your playhead where you wonder script to take place and you should have the object selected on the timeline. Then go down here to the split tool and click on it. And then this is now worth split. You can select the right one and you can delete it since we didn't require it. So the last tool on this panel is the ad exported frame tool, which is the camera icon. Now what it does it if you have a video selected and you want to capture a frame on that you need to do is click on this icon and that image just where the playhead, if you're going to get captured and it will show on your timeline. So here is our movie clip and I want to capture this particular bit. So all that I need to do is I click on this and that it has been now captured and into the available on a timeline where my play head was. And you can move it around and see that this is the era of what we have captured. Now, I don't really want it. I just did this fall demonstrating it, right, friends. So in this video, I explained to you the tools which are available in the Tools panel of the timeline. And I also explain to you exactly for what purpose can you use these tools? We are going to be using it quite frequently as we progress in the course. And therefore, you will understand the working or effect in practical and real-world scenarios. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 10. Using the library: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to acquaint ourselves with the laboratory in Camtasia liability, the place where all the assets lie to be used in Camtasia to access the liability unit 2. We're down here and click on it. And you'll get a panel like this. I do see. And within that panel there are a number of folders, as you can see. And all these folders have lot of good content within which has been given along with Camtasia when you bite. So let's say for icons, if you click on it, you'll find that there are other folders which have been categorized as asthma, the kind of content which it has. For example, buildings. If you click on it, you have many options to select from. As you can see. Then let's say business. Again, when you click on it, you have many icons which are available, which you can use within your presentations. Similarly, when it comes to people, again, you have many options to choose from. For your presentations. All that you need to do is just grab it and put it on the stage. So apart from the icons, because so many of them, I would recommend that you go through the youth on your own, explore these folders, and mentally have a peculiar what did available. So that just in case your project requires the IV, you can pull it out from her. Let's go this apart from the view also have some animated intros, lower thirds motion backgrounds, and moves it drags and outro. Let's have a look at few of the IV. For example. Let's say your intros. If we just grab this and double-click on it, Let's start to come up. And you can play and see it. And you can also just grab it and polynomial timeline. It will also come up on the canvas and you can plate. So these are nice templates which can be used in your presentations or any kind of work you're doing with Camtasia. And the good part is that all of these can be customized. Know about customizing these, I will be discussing in a separate video altogether. So you have number of intro, you can go through all these and see what, let me just delete this. Then you also have lower thirds. Undo that. Good, just in case you want to spell out the name of your prevent audio, want to leave some kind of message below. So lower thirds are quite good for that. Let me just demonstrate one order, lower third. Let's say we take this one and we bring it down to the timeline. And you press play. And it's going to play for, you know, all these text which you see here in the colors can be customized to meet your project's requirement. And that's the good part of these assets. I quite like these assets. They helped me to save a lot of time. Let's close this. Then. You also have motion background videos, which you can use in your presentations. They are pretty nice videos and they can help you to make your presentations quite lively. Let's try one of these. If I bring it and put it on the track and play it. That's a nice effect which you can use within your projects. I stop this and delete. Then you also have a number of music tracks which you can pick up and use. I find some of them to be quite nice and they can make your projects quite lively. And I'll recommend to you that tryout all these assets which are available within the library so that you have a clear idea as to what is line we are and what you can use in your own presentations. Most of the work that you do, music tracks may come in handy. Let's close this. And then we have outros. They have given us limited outlook, but you can modify and make it quite useful. Know apart from that, Camtasia also helps you to download more assets. So if you click on this, you are taken to their online library, as you can see. And then you have these options like templates. We have teams who have device frames, you have intro and outro and motion graphics. There are many, many options available within, let's say we click on this device frames. So now we have many device frames in front of us, and as you can see, plenty of them are free. And then a lot our bid also. And you've got to buy their subscription. That'll buy their subscription. You can go down and click here, and I think it's round about 19, 19 dollar for a year. I find it to be quite expensive because you may use it once or twice. In fact, you can make do with whatever is free. And when it comes to photos, they're not having any free photos available for you. And I don't think it's required to pick up from here. You can always take your camera, in fact your mobile and shoot something which is pertinent to your project. So they have videos. I find the videos quite interesting. They are good videos, but then the cost is quite a bit with a little bit of imagination. When you travel using your camera, using a mobile, you can come up with the kind of videos on your own. But if you are into this kind of work which requires these assets on a regular basis, then I think it's worth it if your client work needs on a regular basis to be able to provide these kind of things, then I think it is quite okay. So similarly, outros, introductions, motion backgrounds, all these are available and this library, Let's close this. So friends, in this video I explained to you about the liability and you must have delayed that a lot of assets are available to us ab initio, which can be used in our products. And should you follow sought of it, there are options to download from the Internet or create your own at include in the library. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 11. Creating the library: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to learn how to create and manage a laboratory when you have a lot of assets with you and you want them to be available to you for projects would you want to create in the future? You may like to create your own libraries. So let's see how we can do that. To create the library, we need to go down to Library. Click on that. And then by default you have this Camtasia 2021 library open, which is the default library with the assets which camtasia has provided. Or we can click here. And then there are a few options. We need to go down here to Create new library and click on it. Once you do that, you'll get this dialog box. You need to name your library. So let's name it my acid. And then you have to decide whether you'd like to pick up all of these, all you want a blank. We are going to be creating a blank laboratory. So click on this and click on Create. So here now, when he will see your, my Assets Library has been created. Go down to this. Your library will be available here. And right now this is a WTO to open. And now having created a laboratory, we need to add assets to the library. Now you can add assets right from your timeline, whatever you have imported here, or you can also import assets to your library. So to add from timeline, you'll need to select that object. And you will need to right-click. And right here at the bottom, it says Add pool Library. Click on it and it will ask you for the name. I will go for the default, click on OK, the lecture. I want to add this picture also. I right-clicked and I click on library. It gives me the default name. If you want to contain the name, let me just change it for you. And out of these use Canvas site, you then use visible side with both size and click on. Okay, so we now have a library with us. Now let's import from a hard disk for that good care. It says Add Timeline selection of important media to library. So we'll click on import media to liability. Then you can navigate to your folder from where you want to pick up the asset. So I'm already there, so I'm going to pick this up and glucagon open. An Excel add to library of meiosis. I click on, Okay. And there it has been now added. So once you have few assets, maybe that you want to put them in folders. So you can right-click here. And we'll get this option of new folder. Click on it. Let me name this the editors. Now you can shift D light comes into the folder. So this is how you create a liability. Then you add assets to your library and then you can create a folder and put all those assets within your library. Now coming down to managing or leverage, let's click here. And you have this option of managed laboratory, or you can rename a liability. Let's click on this. So my asset, you can rename it by calling it. My assets will be row one. And click on. Okay, so your library held now got a rename or less, go to another library again. You have this option of garlic laboratory. I think it's a really simple of it. Whichever library you want to delete, you can delete that. Let's click on this and it's asking for option I am wound will cancel this. Let's go back to manage your library again. Then you have this option of export laboratory. Or you can export this library if you click on this, now you're getting the option here. The name is already been given. You can choose the name if you want to. And here you will notice that it's a liability, the pile. So you can export that your laboratory other zip file which can be imported by anybody in their own Camtasia project. This is a really good feature because if you're working as a team and you want to share certain assets which you have created. This will govern very handy. Let's cancel this. And at the aspect of managing your laboratory is import a library file. So if you're greater the library or somebody else has created a library, you can import that using this tab here. Also when you buy assets from Camtasia store, once again, you will have to import it using this feature. So friends, in this video, I explained to you how to create a laboratory and how to manage the laboratory. This would be a very essential for you to manage your assets that you create or ritual import into your project. And you want that asset to be available to you for other products. So friends, That's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 12. Using transitions: Hi friends. In this video, I'm going to explain to you about transitions. In Camtasia, you have a large number of transitions. And to access the transitions, you would need to go down here and click on transitions. But I'll come to this again. Let me explain to you for things, what do you really understand by transitions? So transitions help you to move or switch from one clip to the other. Seamless manner, which is visually more appealing to the eye. Let me just explain this to you by a demonstration. Now here I have two clips. And if I place the play head here and let me play this, see the switch from the previous image for the next was very abrupt and that doesn't really play well with the eyes. Now let me explain this with the help of two clips in which I applied the transition. So let me play this and see how it is now switched in a visually pleasing manner. This is what transaction does. And there will be many occasions when you are creating a movie using Camtasia that you will require to use these transitions. So to apply these transitions, we need to go down with this tab transitions and click on it. And then we have these transition. Now here, you can scroll down and, you know, they've given us a larger number of transitions. In all. You have a 123 transitions available to you. So you will have to really play around with these transitions to see which one is going to be suitable for your project. When you move these transitions, you get a feedback as to what kind of a transition effect you're going to get and how do you apply it? So if you select a transition, let's say I want to use this blood and zoom. You need to click on it. And then you will need to drag and drop on it. Now here, when I'm bringing it down, you will see that extremities of the clip have been highlighted. What it means is that you can apply a transition or any of the areas. We will first put it in between the two clips. Now, I want to take another transition, let's say burn. And I want to apply to the beginning of this clip. And I want to again burn and apply it to the end of this clip. Now let's play this. You had a nice transition with which they were given. Now using this down the center, we have moved on to the next clip. And this is the transition which ends images play. So you must have realized that this is a lovely way of switching from one clip to the other or even starting a clip. This can be applied to any kind of media made BY majors or videos. Another thing is that you can also extend the duration of d, like if you hover over it, you get this kind of a double-sided arrow. You can increase or decrease depending on your requirement. Let's say we have included and left quizzes. So you've got to decide for yourself as to what kind of time duration do you require. Now you can also, after applying it, if you do not like it, you can delete it. Select it. Have I have done. The color changes to yellow and you press the Delete key on your keyboard, and there it goes. Let's delete all of these. When you have the transition selected. Let me first delete this one. When you have the transitions selected. In the properties panel, you get this option in the type from here also, you can change the type of the transition, Let's say blurs. You get so many options, you can choose any of these options From your lips where we select spin flip. This would probably change the transition. So earlier there were the Cube transition. Now you've got a separate condition altogether. Let's do one more. Let's go down here and let go to feeds. And let's say we put a glitch. And let's play this. And that's again, a nice way of doing it. Or you can play around with all these. And you should be able to decide as to which one you want to use in your own project. So either you can apply from here or you can use it from this a panel that's entirely up to you. I also get these two options, the US trimmed content or reverse. You can again select the requirement of your project. So friends, in this video, I explained to you what transition are and how to use transitions to switch from one clip to the other. And by judicious use our transition, you can actually get very good visual effects in your videos. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 13. Recording : Overview: Hello friends. In this video, I will explain to you how to use the recorder. No-till you record something, you cannot edit it. And therefore, one of the most essential aspects of camtasia is to lead to record the screen. So then you launch Camtasia, you get a splash screen as you are seeing right now. Here itself we have the option of new recording. You can click on it and at a quarter will come up. Let's say you have the editor open, which we shall do now let's create a new project. So once the editor opens, this is what we see and I've explained about the interface in an earlier video. So to launch the recorder right here on top you have this record. Click on that. And then you'll get a record like this. Now here let me explain to you what is there on the interface. First of all, you can select this green side right now by default, as you can see, the whole screen have been selected. But there are options. If you click, you can record the screen. You can also choose a reason. So let's do this. And now we can select any area to the cord. You can see here, let me move this to a site. Then you have options of widescreen or one to 800 into 7200. There are also presents for recording, for Instagram and for Facebook cover video. So all of these options are available. Let's say you want to record for Instagram, you click on it, and then the site is now come up and it's squared insights. Similarly, you can do four Facebook cover. Let's go back to widescreen. So that is as far as the side of the capsule area is concerned. And then here you have the option of recording from various kinds of my case. I have seen 92 and the inbuilt, a webcam off my BST available to me. I can choose either one of them to record this green health record the voice while continue with C19 gluteal. Now you don't want a video that is the webcam capturing your headshot. You can switch it off or you can switch it on. Then we have the options for microphone. You have options and I have the three microphones which are attached to my PC. All those have been picked up by the software and I am an option. So I selected my Yeti studio microphone. You can select any one of them, which you want to use. I feel worn. Don't want to record audio. Then you can again switch it off or you can switch it on. Then the option to record system module, if you want to do that, you can turn this on. However, I would like to recommend that when you are recording your voice-overs, do not use system module system audio can be quite disturbing any order cuttings. But there are times when you would like to record system module, which I shall explain to you as we progress in the course or let, put this off. And once all this is done, if you click on Record, so let's do that. Now before that one more thing for using this. You can select the volume at which you want to record. What I recommend to you is that have the volume as low as possible so that, you know, kind of disturbance is recorded. In any case, you have the option later to include the volume as much as you want. But having said that, now to record, we can click on the Record button. And now you're screening getting recorded. And you have this tabular. Put it on the taskbar by clicking here. And when required, you can go here and open it up. But to stop recording, you will require to press the Stop button. You can even pause your recording in between. Here you can pause it and you can restart it. You can restart your recording if you want to. And you're getting a feedback as you can see, how much time has passed since you started the recording. Right? Now let's say we are done with recording. Let's click on stop. And this is going to launch the editor. And even if they want to launch your recorder so that you are ready for the next recording. Lips close this. Now you have the footage with your captured here and you can carry out the editing about that. I shall explain to you in a separate video, right, friends. So in this video, explained to you about the recorder and basic settings which you can use to record your screen. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 14. Recording : Work flow: Hi friends. In this video, I'll explain to you the workflow of recording your screen. So once you have launched your Camtasia disorder, kind of interfere at which you get. And to record the screen, you need to go down here to record and click on it. Now you'll get your screen recorder, as you can see on the screen. Now you can open up the software which you want to record or even a website in this demo, we'll record our website. So I'm going to launch that website. There it is. Now to record it, I need to press this record button, so I click on that. And you'll get this tab and you'll get a timer. When the timer is over. You can, either you can minimize it or you can leave it either too. In any case, this particular bar is not going to get a recorded for. Let's minimize that. Having done that and now your screen and getting recorded and you can, whatever you are going to be doing is now being recorded. Now let's say that I just want to explain something about this particular website. I can do that. Having done so, we need to close the recording or stop the recording. For that, we click here and this tab opens up and we're going to click on Stop. What do I had been recorded will appear in your Camtasia editor as you can see you now. And you also have this in front of you, which is open for you just in case you want to record something. I don't want to, so I'm going to go that. And now you have in front of you the Camtasia interface open with the content, with your recorded and yarn, the timeline you can see, and the duration of the recording and the voice or et cetera. And you can edit this about editing, we are having another video which is going to be giving you the editing workflow, right, friends. So in this video, I explained to you the workflow which you need to adopt to record your screen. It can be any content with your new record to either explain something like I was trying to in this particular capture, trying to explain about the website. Or you could record working of a software to teach how that software works and how to use it. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 15. Recording : PowerPoint Presentations: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to learn how to record PowerPoint slides with Camtasia. So when you open a presentation in PowerPoint, you have Camtasia add-in. To access the add-in, you need to go down here and click on Add-ins. And you'll get this panel here on the left side with five buttons. The first one is record. So to record your PowerPoint slides, you need to click on record. You have the option of to record audio. If you click on it, you get this kind of icon and you can record your audio. But I'll leave it unchecked because I don't want to record audio, then you have the option to record your camera. So in case you want to record your head shot, you can do that, but I will again not invoke it. And then you have the option to show camera preview again, this I will not invoke. And then the last option is recording options. Let's click and see what they are. Now these options need to be gone into. There are almost the same as we have seen earlier. The recorder options. Few Chinua there like a chain start recording paused, I think have this checked then it felt edit in Camtasia haven't finished. Yes, I would like to do that. So keep that check. Now here it says include watermarks. I don't want you what a walk-through. Don't check this. If you want to include watermark, go ahead and check that. Then the option it at the end of presentation, prompt blue, continue recording. And you have other options like continue recording and stop recording. I prefer to have it kept at prompt to continue recording. Then about screen audio, there are certain options like screen frame rate. There are options available, but I recommend that keep it at 30 frames. Then record two, you have again two options, TORC2 and edge to 64. I normally record at as to 64 and that would be prudent to do. Well, you can also record audio. So if we check here, you can record audio and you have this option of audio source for from this drop-down list, you can choose which one you want to select. I'm not going to be recording the audio. So while uncheck it, again here it says picture-in-picture record from camera. You can click and you can go in for cameras setup. If you click on this, you'll get this option using that you can set up your camera. I don't really want to use this one will cancel this and uncheck this. Then you have various keyboard shortcuts. If you want to include them, go ahead and include, okay, once you're happy with this, you can come down here and click on. Okay. Now to start recording, you need to hold on her door record and click on it. You don't have to start the PowerPoint slides from here because once you click on the Record button, Camtasia itself is going to launch the slideshow. So let's click on this. And there are slideshow has got launched. And on the right bottom corner using this option of click to begin recording. And if you want to, you can adjust the weights or the microphone. But in our case, you're not required to left-click to begin recording. And now you can click through the slides the way you want to record it. So once your slide showing, you will get this method which you're seeing right in front of you. Stop recording. Continue recording. I want to stop it. So I'm going to click on stop recording. And then you are prompted to save it. And we're going to save it as the default name. Then you get this option which says produce a recording or edit your recording. I would recommend that you always click this, edit your recording so that if there are any issues you can edit them. So I'm going to click on this. And now my recording is going to open up in Camtasia and probably it has only opened up though. In fact, the launching Camtasia, such camtasia has been launched and I presume that the recording or to have been. Now opened up and Camtasia. So let's minimize this PowerPoint application. So here we have our presentation which has been included in the media bin. We need to grab it and drag it onto the timeline. Notice prompting us whether we would like to import PowerPoint slide. I don't want to, so just click here as not lead trends. Now you can play through and see what you recorded. On the first slide is on for quite some time. So now we have a self playing movie which has been recorded in Camtasia. And this will be very handy in case you want to have a thing like this going for you. Now we're getting this and we want to go over that. So we are going to just grab the end of it and we're going to go to the left until such time that message goes away because we don't want that in our movie. Now, apart from that, you must have noticed that it took a lot of time in the beginning. So I'm going to go onto the beginning and I'm going to, okay, I wanted up to this time, so I want to just grab this and reduce occur. And I'm going to drive this on the left side for one more aspect which you need to understand is that these markers which are seen here, these are the markers which are indicating the beginning of a new slide in order and recording. So keep that in mind just in case you need to maintain your edit a particular slide. You can go down here to the marker and you will be able to do that. Type friends. So in this video, I explained to you how you can use Camtasia to record your PowerPoint slides and create a self running movie which can be distributed on YouTube, on your website or directly given to somebody to use it and view it. You can also send it to Vimeo and include a new website. So this is a really effective way of doing the recording of PowerPoint. That's it for this video. Take good and happy learning. 16. Recording : Mobile Screen: Hi friends. In this video, I'm going to explain to you how we can record their screen of our iPhone or Android smartphone. We are going to be basically taking an example from an iPhone to record your screen. You will need to install a software on your computer, and that's known as the Reflector 3. And you need to go down to air scooters.com slash reflector. And here you can buy the software in case you just want to try it out. You can also try it out. But this software is something which I have shortlisted because this is one of the best going around. There are many you can Google for it. But I have been using this and I find it to be quite good. Now, once you have bought it, you download the software and you install on your PC. Thereafter, you need to launch the software. And you'll get a banner like this. Few adjustments you need to do before we get onto recording, you need to click here on Settings and click on Preferences. And from her. In general, I would recommend that you should change the name of your broadcast because you may not remember the name of your desktop. So let's say my cost, 01, let me name it as this short client name. Keep it at off, always on top. I think I need to uncheck this then on startup show quick collection window. Yeah, keep it checked. Now let's go down to connections. And here, airplay resolution. Let's keep it at default. That is a wonder if the rupee default scale should be full-screen, That's fine. Helpless security. Leave it as it is on connection, connect and Show device. And then show for him, it should be you have options but selected auto display, fullscreen, and full-screen background, yes. And solid color. You can select from this panel, but I prefer white because that gives a nice look to your recordings. And then all that you need to do is go down to Advanced and short that this airplane, Google Cast and miracles all unable. Having done so you just need to click on Apply and then click on. Okay. All of you required if you go down to your mobile phone, slip it up, you'll get the menu. And there you have screen mirroring, click on it. And there you will find the name Mike asked 001, which you had given the name here. And my gosh, 0, 1. Click on that, and then you get this number. This is the onscreen code. You need to enter it. So let's enter it as 2941. And then on the dialogue box which has appeared on the screen of your Mobile, click on, Okay. Your screen is getting displayed on the mobile, on the computer screen and you have a nice white background so you can place it wherever you want to. And then using your mobile phone, whatever you do there is screen is going to be changed accordingly. Let's go back and let's say we want to record our tutorial regarding Zoom. So you go there and you can click on meetings. It's only there. You can click on Start. And then you get the option is connecting. Select your. So this is how actually you record your screen assets. And then you can get out of it. And if you can flip through your screen and select any other software. So as you can notice, whatever we are doing on the screen of a mobile is coming up on the screen of the computer. Therefore, in case you want to explain or make a tutorial of any kind of application which is there on, on your mobile phone to teach people is quite easy now, to do that, to get out of this, you press escape and close this, and that's done, right, friends. So in this video I explained to you how you can record the screen of your computer. It's quite easy. All I do require you to install a software no, no reflector. And then go ahead. The way I explained too. So that's it for this video. Thanks for listening, Take care and happy learning. 17. Suggested Equipment: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to discuss as to what equipment is required to create online courses. There's lot of talk regarding who could create a course using just your iPhone or your iPad or any kind of smartphone. Yes, that's possible. But you won't get the quality which is really required to make an impressive course. So I have a set of equipment which I shall be discussing. I am not going to be discussing any kind of options. Because over the years since I've been creating online courses or e-learning, I have been using lot of equipment and have already arrived at a set of optimum equipment which you require. And that is what I am going to be talking about in this course. We were not going to be breaking your bank, but you do require a set of decent equipment to be able to create good-quality video and audio. That is a must. Otherwise your courses will not work, we will not sell. So let's see what is really required. So first of all, we will require a PC and a laptop, and it must have at least the I7 processor, 16 GB of RAM and to TB of hard disk. That's why I'm insisting on this kind of fast computer is because when you are recording videos, if you want the video to be running smooth, you require fast processor. You'll be working on software to edit your videos and they are memory hungry. So 16 GB RAM is a must. And when you create multimedia or the size of ice are quite large. So to save them, we required a large size hard disk and a 2 D VLDB would be, I think good enough. And later probably will have to add more portable hard drive to then you will require a very good quality Mike. But remember, you are not a rock star. You are not recording a rock concert URL instructor who's trying to impart knowledge to your students. So as far as the mike records good sound and clear sound without any noise, that should be good enough. So I find that blue at the USB mike is a very good choice. It's very robust, It's very sturdy, and it requires good audio. The kind of audio with which you are hearing at the moment. So go ahead and use this kind of bike or else you could do research and get something better. That's up to you, but this is what I will recommend. Then you require a nice camera. Now you can go ahead and record your lessons on maybe iPhone or a DSLR camera or a professional compact camera. But you will have to then bring all that into the computer to edit it, uses software to edit it and clear it up, make it worthwhile for your lesson. That all is lot of work. So I recommend Logitech 920. See there's a very good high definition camera. It is attached to your computer. Basically for your lessons, you'll be recording headshots of the kind which you are seeing at the moment. It serves the purpose. And you don't really have to break the bank to buy this. So that is what I recommend. And of course, you'll require a table lamp with 40-watt of tungsten bulb placed behind your PC. Now the setup which I use is what is shown here on this graphic here. So I think that serves the purpose. This particular video has been recorded on this kind of setup and this kind of, of what, what Tungsten bulb throw the orange light, which is quite adequate for headshots. And then I also recommend that you acquire or have a DSLR or a professional compact camera. So if you're going to be recording some kind of process, Let's say if you are creating a course on cooking, so you may like to record the process for that purpose, this kind of a camera would be worthwhile. So that is the set of equipment which I recommend, which you will require to create online courses. I hope I've made myself quite clear. Thanks for listening. Take care, and happy learning. 18. Editing : Work Flow: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to have a look at the complete editing workflow, Camtasia. I want to show you this so that you generally get a hang of value will be editing your project. What all you need to go through. The first thing that I do when I play the entire clip and I check the recording. I will not repeat that here in this demonstration, but just keep in mind. And then when you're going through the recording, you should note down where the flaws are like, you know, maybe someplace they sort of gap in the audio or you may be coughing, or there may be some other kind of sound, maybe your mobile mix, some kind of song. So all that needs to be gathered on that where it is not, then what I do is I normally separate the audio and video of my headshot so that in case I added my headshot, the soundtrack should not get disturbed. Now for doing that, right-click on this track, which has the headshot and the audio. And then go down here and click on separate audio and video. Now see, we have now untracked to the headshot. And on track 3 we have the audio that mix my editing simpler. Having done so now I take these steps to clear any kind of noise in the audio. For that, I'll go down to Audio Effects. It's already open. Grab this noise removal and drop it onto the soundtrack. The moment I do this, look at the property panel. And here I will crank up my sensitivity to about three. This is the best combination I have come with experience. You can try your own. Then the volume level, as you can see, is quite low for that, what I do is I go down here and click on Project Settings. And then here we have the option of auto normalized loudness. Check this, and click on Apply. Now see how the soundtrack now look totally different details, god, or to normalized. Then I go here and I zoom into that tracks for that while editing, I can see the soundtrack quite clearly. And I start playing the video 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Let's go high fence. In this video, we are going to learn. Now they were the issue here. Therefore, I clapped. Just after the clapping, I'll stop the playhead. I'm going to select the entire timeline and I'm going to go onto cut and cut this out. That's my first edit. In this video, we will learn how to create using Affinity Photo. Now here I find a bit of gap. So I'm going to grab this and drag this out to OK here only now let me talk a bit about editing this headshot. I don't want this complete area, so I'm going to select this, go down here, and click on the crop tool. And then I'm going to drop the head shot as you are seeing here. To this level. Also from top. I think that should be okay. I'll click here again and I'm going to increase the size of the head shot a bit. That looks okay to me and I'm going to place this here. Now there are certain things which I can do to this head shot to make it look better. And for that, I'll go down here to visual effects. And we're going to give this a border. I'm going to include the thickness in the Properties panel here. You can see almost with the total, I'll keep the outline and white because we have a dark background. And I'm going to also drop shadow onto this. And we will work with the offset of it. I think whatever you vary though, piano firm will do this loop, whatever is the default. Now having done that, we can start editing our review again. The outdoors can do that. We need to hold onto the gold ball. Only gold ball. Now, I'm going to jot down the position of this play head at the moment, there's just ten seconds. Because initially I just want to show my head shot while introducing the video. Then I don't want any headshot because I don't want the viewer's attention to be diverted. And then again towards the end, when I'm summing up the lesson, I require the head shot, so we're going to edit that towards the end. I just thought I will explain to you that what you're going to happen to the head truck. So don't worry in case there is any kind of problem with the head shot. Now we'll continue playing the video. Click on this. Now this gap with a bit too much, so I'm going to reduce this a bit by selecting and cutting here most of the editing on your timeline you're going to take place by this tool, which is the Cut tool. Let's continue playing the video and click on this icon in the toolbar and you'll get a palette from this panel. You can. Now, in case you want to zoom in and show this in detail, what we can do is go down here to animations and then grab this and zoom into this area. This is also nice practice. In fact, I wouldn't do that. We will do it towards the end after having deleted the headshot from the center. So we're going to scale to fit and we're going to delete these lips, keep playing it. Select a number of types of shapes. Again, I want to do over this gap. And this gap. We are interested in the rounded rectangle tool. So click on this, come onto the stage and draw this like this. Now, again, we have a large gap. You see, we don't want our strings to relay that. I was fumbling while recording this. So we're going to delete this. Now. Right now it is one of cell, but it doesn't have any outline. And notice that there's a small red dot. Yeah. You kind of grab. Now here we have a bit of lip sound. I'm going to get a hold of that. And I'm going to delete this, kind of grab this. You can convert this into a petal, or you can convert this into a rectangle, something it back like this, and create a rounded rectangle. Again, this gap is large, so I want to delete this. If you aren't doing, you can click here and you can increase the width of the outline and you're going to outline, Let's do our outline for this demonstrate. It was a problem. Though. I've even the outline. Outline. So I'm going to select this area because there's duplication of zone. And the outline. And delete this. Let's do a woman outline for this demonstration. This obviously needs to be deleted. So go down here and grab hold of the handle. Move it here, and we'll cut it out. And then we can select this right also, I don't require, so I'm going to delete this too. Now. I want to draw out another rectangle. And there was a problem in my speech. Want to draw out another? So I will grab hold of this. This will delete this. So you must have realized by now that condition gives you that flexibility in case you're gone wrong and in your pronunciation. You can amend that and then edit that while editing your recording. Another rectangle here. And this gap needs to be taken care off and change the color of this rectangle. Let's have no, What I want to demonstrate now is that how to add and subtract. For that, you'll need to select all the objects on the gaps. You must take care of whatever commands we apply. Remember that the octet on. Remember that the Arctic and thought that either one we can look at added or subtracted from the object and the model. So right-click. And here you have this. Now we want to show what is happening here so we can zoom in, but I'll do it in the second round of geometry. And you can add this. Then it is. Let's undo. Allowed to subtract. Again. You right-click, right-click. Go to Geometry, add, subtract, and then you'll get a subtractive object. So it has this easy to use. Again, this gap needs to be reduced. So we'll cut it out. Affinity Photo to create objects, add and subtract objects using this. And this was a problems where we are going to believe this at objects. It wasn't this thing, this, you can, we need to delete the duplicate sound. Using this, you can create various kinds of geometric shapes which you can use any Oberlin patients or in a document that you create like bushes or any kind of pasta or maybe visiting guard. So all that is possible working within ethnic one-photon. So this scuffing zone, again need to be taken care of. So that's it for this video. Thanks on. So that's it for this video. Thanks on. So that's it for this video. Now, this needs to be deleted from the so that's it for this video. Thanks. So that's it for this video. And happy, this gap needs to be deleted. And happy lying. Now, we don't require this clip towards the end. So we are going to select this complete thing. And I till the end, and we're going to cut it out. So friends here, what now I want to do is I want to have only the beginning and the end of the headshot. Therefore, I'm willing to go back and see whether X atom some coffee on this I require. I jotted down from where I want to cut it out. I think it was so it has this really, I think it is somewhere here. So let me just go down here. An object. So it is easy to show. I want the clip, the headshot from here onwards. So I'm going to select the head shot track. I'm going to go down here to the split tool and click on it. And you'll see this head shorter now got split, this will facilitate and deleting the in-between portion so that I don't have it here. Now we'll go to the beginning and played such as this, easy to lose after default, auto create, objects, add and subtract off. In this video, we are going to go learn how to create shapes using Affinity Photo. Tos could do that. We need to hold onto the toolbar. Click on. So it is here that I want to end the beginning of the head shot. So again, I'm going to place the blade here and I'm going to click on Split tool. And the clip has been split. So we have a simple clip, we have a beginning clip and we have a clip at the end. So I don't want that beginning clip. And I'm going to deleted for this, press on the delete key and it will get deleted. That's the gap here. And since we had separated out the headshot and the soundtrack, the soundtrack have not got disturbed. It's still there. The only thing is that I if I go back home, stretch and a headshot comes up with a joke, I don't want that. I want it to be feeding in. So I'm going to go down two behaviors here. And I'm going to take this Fade behavior and I'm going to apply it on the head shot. So let's now play it. Hello friends. In this video, we are going to learn how to create shapes using Affinity Photo. We have clothes could do that. We need to hold onto the gold ball and when it will get him over to the gain for denote no lift, go down right at the back. Select this. Bliss are blurred here. And we're going to again take this Fade behavior and apply it to. So let's listen to this object. So it has, this really goes after the photo to create objects, add and subtract objects. Using this, you can create various kinds of it shapes which you can use a Oberlin patients or in your document that you create like bushes or any kind of pasta, or maybe visiting guard. So all that is possible working within ethnic one-photon. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. Hi friends. In this video, we have a right friends. So we went through a complete sequence of how to edit your captured video. And I explained to you a number of things. Videoed help you in editing your own videos. Not this was to cover the basics. As we move along in the course, I'll be covering more aspects which are a bit at once. And you should try and incorporate those in your own editings when you are editing your video. So for int, That's it for this video, take care and happy learning. 19. Splitting and stitching: Hi friends. In this video, I will explain to you how to use split hand stitch to edit your videos. Now when you capture a video using the recorder, you need to edit it in Camtasia as editor. Now there are two very useful ways of doing that. That is one is to split your clip and then should you require to, you can also take the clip. Now let me first explain to you how to split a clip. So let's say that in this clip, which is there, our timeline, we don't want Toward the end, quite a bit of footage. Wherever we want to split, we need to bring the play head there and the footage has to be selected. Now, go down here to the tools area. And here we have this option of Split. Click on it. And you will notice now that this larger clip has now been split into two. So we have one here and we have one year. Now. I don't want this grip on the right side. So all that I need to do is tap on, Delete on the keyboard and it gets deleted. So we now have a smaller footage. Another way of splitting and editing is I'm going to explain to you now. Let's say I don't want a portion of the fatigue here. Now what I can do is I can place my playhead here, have the clip selected, and then split this clip. Now, I can now move to another area where I want this split to take place. So I will put my play head there and have the clip on your timeline selected. And then I'm going to go here to split tool and click on it. So now we have three clips. This is the area which I don't want. So all that you need to do is delete. Now you'll find that they're the gap in between. Now this is where certain options on the track and the timeline come into play. So when you'll see here, you have this option of an ML magnetic track. So click on that and see how. Now the clip has got attached to the clip on the left side. You can still move this. Now if you want to make both these clips as one, then what you need to have both selected. And then right-click right on top here you have this optimal tick selected media. So just click on this. And now this entire for ten is one clip. So friends, that is how you can use split and stretch to edit our footage on your timeline. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 20. Separating and editing audio: So friends, in this video, we are going to learn how to separate audio and video from our clip. And we're also going to learn how to level up the sound levels. You know, there'll be times like in this video I've done the same thing you capture are talking video. Therefore, the audio and video are in the same track like here. Both audio and video are on track to. Now let's say that I just want, you know, a portion of my talking head in the beginning and some toward the end and in-between. I don't want the talking head to be visible. So if I delete it from this particular video, then audio will also get deleted. Now that is not a good thing at all because then I don't have the narrative for the video which I'm creating. So for that purpose, it would be prudent to separate audio and video. And we are lucky that in Camtasia it's so easy to do that. All that you need to do is you right-click and you get this optional separate audio and video. Click on that. And now video is on one track and the audio is on another track. So if now I, let us say I take this area and I delete the video, the soundtrack will not be affected. Now coming to the second that is editing the sound level. There are two options. You can select it and you go down here to Project Settings. And from here, you can take auto, normalize, loudness, click on it, and click on apply. As you must have noticed, the levels have increased. There has been a gain of almost about a 100 percent. As you can see here. This has been done by analysis, by the software itself, and it has done it across the board. So here also, the increase in sound has taken place. I, but I want this to be at the same level. So we need to do that manually. So let me do away with this auto option. And it does a good job. We can do this manually also. So when we click on this track, right now this is elected and if we select this track, you'll get this highlight. You can grab hold of this and you can move up to include the sound as much as you want. Now, this particular area, as you can see, is quite high. I don't want that to be that higher pitch. You can come here. You can select this area and you can now drag this down to bring it to the same level as we have done, and then click anyway. So you have edited this in the same manner. You can do it all along the track available. You feel that vary the issue like I find this to be a bit loud so I can go down here and then select base, grab this and bring it, none of it. So this is how you increase or decrease the loudness in your soundtrack. So friends in this video, I explained to you how to separate audio and video and then how to level the audio in your project and also how to do selective connections. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 21. Working with markers: So friends in this video, we're going to learn about markers. You can use markers as reminders for editing. You can also use markers to set a navigation points about which I shall be talking later. So to see the marker drags, you can click here. And you have the drop-down menu. You have two options, markers and quiz. You can select Marker and, and the market drag is now visible. You can also from the view menu here, go down here and you can hide the marker track, or you can show the marker track. You can attack the markers either to the timeline here on this track, or you can attach it to the clip. So when you start dragging your mouse away from the marker, you'll find this kind of an icon and perpendicular lines wherever you want the marker to be set, to just click there and a marker gets set. Then you move ahead again. And let's see you on this area. To be referenced, you click here and the marker gets set. You can give custom names to your markers. So once you have the market selected and if you look on the Properties panel, here, you have this and you can let say, you can change this name to mark the row one and press Enter. You can also drag your marker to a new position if we wanted to, let say you want to have this marker here, who can pay for it Here? Let's add one more molecule. So there it is. This marker track on the clip you can put markers here to. These markers are independent of the markers on the timeline on top. Remember that with this Marker selected, Let's say you want to move to the left marker. All that you need to do is press Control and left bracket key. And you will be moving like that. You can also move towards the right by pressing control and the right bracket key nonce. Suppose you want to select an area left of this marker. On that you need to do is press Control and Shift and press the left bracket key and this area gets selected trolls. It makes it quite easy for you to select areas and delete them and added them as you require to delete a marker. If we don't require it, you can just, you can just select it and then press the Delete key and the marker gets deleted. We would run a mistake. We deleted this silicon area, so we're going to go and click on Edit and Lou. And then we'll click somewhere else to deselect it. And now we're going to select this marker and press Delete. And there that marker has got deleted. So friends in this video, I give you a basic idea about markers you must have by now realize that they are very useful. Market areas which you want to reference at a later stage may be for some kind of editing. And you have options available to select areas to edit. So that's it for this video. Thanks for listening, care and happy learning. 22. Using Favorites: Hi friends. In this video I want to discuss, and that's favorites. Let's see what favorite side will come and hovered over here. You'll get this hint. Now what exchange favorites help you to save useful video announcements in one location for quick access. And that's a really good thing actually. And when we work with annotations, just click on it. You have so many annotations if you go and see all. There's so many of them, but I don't think I ever use so many of them. My favorites are out of these, bold or maybe even basic, which are similar to these. So this is what I use, but within this also there are just about one or two which I use regularly. I love to use this one. So when you hover over any of the behaviors or annotations in Camtasia 2020 and find a star next to it. If I click on this, this is going to get added to the favorites tab. Here you have the favorites. If I click on it, see here that ABC I've got added. Similarly, if i, I use this particular annotation quite frequently. So if I click on this star here, this also now gets added to the favorites. For doing this, you can create your own library of various affect animations, behaviors, cursor effects, audio. Fix this so that you don't have to go and use all the tabs again and again. You know, let's say transitions. How I love to use this glow transition so I can convert this into a favorite. You go to favorite and you find it listed here. And behaviors. I love this pop-up behavior. So you just click on this and this gets added to your favorites. So by doing this, you can get collection of various annotations, transition behaviors, animations, causal effects, even audio fix, I guess. I use this noise removal very frequently. So I can click on this, it gets added. I also use audio compression where infrequently click on that. I don't do the fade in, fade out very frequently, so I leave it out. I go to Favorites. Now these are all added. So now when I have to apply any kind of effect, my recordings, all that I need to do is and I'm fine, I'm here. I just go down to Favorites and I'll find all my favorite effects. Even from visual effects. Like if I go here and I click on more visual effects, now, I like to drop shadows quite frequently. I can just put it at this thing. I also like to remove color very frequently so I can click here and send it there. Others I use very many times you have borders I use quite frequently is why can add this onto the favorites. Now, I have a nice collection of derivatives here as you can see. And when they are available to me at drop of a hat or shall I say, a click of the mouse. So that is what is favored. It's all about, learn about it, try and make the best use out of it. And you will be saving time as far as your production work is concerned. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 23. Creating and managing themes: Hello friends. In this video, we will learn about creating and managing teams. To manage teams, you will need to go down here to the File menu, click on it. And from the drop-down list you need to click on Manage Themes and you'll get this panel's not, this is the default theme, that set of colors, fonts and logos, which we can change. And then you have a gear icon go using which you can rename the new font you can delete, you can export and you can important themes. To create a team, we need to click on this Add button and you get this small panel, type in the name, and click on occasion. So we have a set of colors which we are going to change. I live default ground has white background. I'm going to clear it from here. I will take this color as backgrounds. And for background tool, I want to select again from the same set of colors but slightly darker color. Maybe this yes, that is fine. Now, for accent color, I want to again clues from this orange subset but lovely light color and you can see, or maybe slightly darker, that should be fine. I'll make it a bit lighter. Now for action tools, Let's also pick up a color. And we're going to be from here only our make versus the scholar. Now let's get onto font. We already have a font here. We can change it. Let's say I want it to be Arial, Black Swan to rural, make it illegal. And thus plan helium. And for logo, we are going to browse and bring in ones. You may, you may not, but I will have a logos or the pseudocode we have 12 and click on. Okay, so we now have our subset. You can see, you can customize the colors to go Joyce our picked up some random color. It may look good. It Monod's look good. Desktop essential at the moment, we need to just understand the concept to click on save and our female got saved. Now to use it, what we are going to do is we're going to pick up and drop from this library, which I have. Open, click on this and bring it down here, less plate. So right now it had Goliath female. You can see by default, we want to change this to that theme which we created. So for that, we need to go down here to select themes. And we will click on the row one and see how the entire set and also the logo has now changed and you have a customized Teams. So friends, you create themes to ensure that venue cleared your project. You have a standard layout. Your creation is not random, but it is OK, note and red taught over. So go ahead and create field teams. And I think you'll be creating very good projects, standard color and font right throughout can also manage teams. Like if you click on this, you click on Manage teams. In fact, I would explain to what we need to do and go down here to Gail, I want to delete this team which I'm using. You see this option to rename, delete or export. We all know delete it, click on it and delete. And our team has got deleted and we are back to that default themes. So friends in this video I explained to you how to manage teams and how to create them, and how to use the themes that you create in your project. So that's it for this video. Take and happy learning. 24. Customizing Intros: Hello friends. In this video, we are going to learn how to customize an element from the laboratory, such as intros or lower thirds, they are animated objects and they have some kind of animation which will send to reveal some text. And they make good Lower Thirds and outros. So we need to customize them to meet our own requirement. To do that, let me take one example from the intros. You can pick up any of these I'm going to do with this one, grab it and drag it down to the timeline and played. So we had an animation coming up. And now we have this kind of screen. What I want to change is this text here, and I want to do away with the logo and Cain, the color of these rectangles. All can be done very, very easily. We need to go down to the properties panel with this element selected. Let's share one. My name's white-eyed when go down here and delete this. And I want to give my website and enter narratives. Now, I don't want this logo here. So I'm going to click here and the logo is gone. You can import a file in case you want to put your own logo. But for this demonstration, I would leave it as it is. Then these two rectangles here I wanted to end, the colors will be. All that I need to do is click here. And from here, I'm going to take orangeish color, maybe this one here. And that's it. Click anywhere. Now for the second rectangle, I wouldn't would take a darker color. Maybe this one here that matter the colors here. And that's it. We have done the changes which we wanted to. Let's go back and play this. And then you have a customized introduction for your project. So go ahead and see how you can make more changes in colors and fonts in the kind of text which you want to import, you will create a logo and serve that logo in sight. Sky's the limit as only a question of trying to understand how this whole thing has gone about. All right, friends. So in this video I explained to you how to customize an element from the library which came bundled when we purchase Camtasia. And I explained you how to customize and introduction. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 25. Audio : Recording Tips: Hi friends, welcome to this module. And in this module, I'm going to discuss with you certain audio recording tips which may be helpful to you for recording good audio. Friends. I think I've mentioned it somewhere earlier too, but I would like to repeat it again that your eyes are not really trained to detect aberrations in video and you're watching it a bit off. Inferior radio can still pass your notice. But your years are always alert in case they find something wrong with the audio that rejected outright. So most of the time you will find that if your video is slightly inferior, your audience may still view it. But if your audio is not up to the mark than most of the time, people are going to skip the redo. So it's very important that you record your audio well, and your audio should be firstly Audible, and then it should be well recorded without any disturbance, et cetera. So let's see. We will discuss your tips for having good audio. First of all, try and use a USB microphone or use our good Mike. Why I'm suggesting or USB microphone is because it needs very less resource from your computer, so that itself helps you out. 1 second is the record very clear audio. I'll suggest that you go in for a USB mic, it gives you all you don't have it. Blue Yeti. Now that's a fantastic Mike and it's reasonably priced. And for this kind of work that in this screen cast, I think that Mr. requirement perfectly, there is really no need to go in for a very elaborate and costly setup because the kind of audio which you require for your screen tasks and screened presentations can be achieved by a USB mic. So adhere to this and I think you should be on your way for good audio. And when you are setting up for your recording, try and adhere to the default settings which Camtasia offers you. They've done a search, they've arrived at a default setting. And that's good. I can assure you that go to I went to using that and recording. And it delivers good audio. If you want to tinker with the settings, then only do it in case you yourself are an audio engineer. Otherwise, for best recording, live it to the default setup, you must practice using a microphone. Firstly, if you continue practicing it, then your shyness goes away. You become quite used to using the mic, that is one, while recording your voice. Try and be at least six to eight inches away from your mike, and that should be a good distance. Select a quiet place to record your audio. That's very essential in case you are doing it in your house or office. I will recommend that you have curtains all around for very dark bends the sound. Put your mic inside a box lined with four. That will reduce the humming sound. I'll talk about it even later. So select a quiet space normally what I do is I get up somewhere around midnight and record till morning. That's the quarters time. I find also in case of years some disturbance like a dog barking or something, stop the recording or pause the recording for that duration and do it once that found had faded away. So do remember that record in a quiet location. Now you must do a short desk recording to make sure that audio is being recorded. This is very essential. Many times to my dismay, I found that I have gone to a recording of about five minutes or so. And when I replayed, there is no sound because either I forgot to put on my mike or connect my mic or I forgot to change the set recording. So this you keep in mind, this is a must, otherwise you'll be wasting so valuable time. And use a script. Create a script. This will make the flow of your recording very smooth, even if you don't want to write the full script, at least jot down the important points in the correct sequence. And based on that, you record, that is what I do. So this is where essentially if you want a smoother recording without any interruptions that record using a script. But you must monitor your audio level azure record, I just explained you this. See when you're recording, this kind of icon is available in the Camtasia recorder. Ensure that your level never goes into the red zone. If it does that, your audio may come out bad and there may be lot of clipping so wide that if you can achieve this unit just about working to orange, you can still be recording good, but try and achieve this kind of a level that is stay in the green zone and you will always end up with a good recording. So do monitor your audio level as you record them. Now you must use editors or do enhancements off the record. There are audio affects available within your tools panel. Use them and how you can remove noise. You can do the volume leveling, you can fade in, fade out, you can even create silence about this I've explained in an earlier tutorial. So try and use this. Now, do use background music, but when you use background music and show that it does not drown your main voice narration. So keep the audio level of your background music law. Well, you may like to record the audio and video separately, but subsequently you will have to synchronize them in Camtasia. But this will certainly give you a better, frankly speaking, most of the time I record ex tempore because I've been doing it for a long time now and adequate, we do an audio together. That's my way of doing it. And I do land up with generally decent sort of a thing. Maybe you will also like to do that once you become proficient in recording your screen costs, and now you must try and block the computers humming sound that can create lot of annoyance in your audio to do that humanlike to hello box lined with form, have you are seeing or some contraption like this, and this should deliver you would read those. So friends, I have two best of my knowledge, share with you a few tips which would help you in recording good audio. I have followed this advice and generally being getting good audio like you're hearing. And this kind of audio I think, should suffice for any kind of screencasts which you want to create until, unless it's a music concert or something that you will require, probably a much more elaborate arrangements. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 26. Recording Voice Narration: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to learn how to record voice narrations within Camtasia, we can record a wise narrations recording voice durations may be required in case you want to independently include a voice narration in your project, or in case you have recorded a video tutorial and some portion of the audio is not good enough, then you want to replace it. In that case also, you can record wise deletion and that and then replace that because AudioClip to record voice narration, we need to go down to this tab voice narration and click on it and you'll get this panel. There are certain options on the panel. We need to take care of them. First of all, is the selection of Mike. So the mike which you need to use duty to select that I'll be selecting yet the USB mic. Then you have the option of selecting auto leveling. I'm going to leave it unchecked because I'm going to level the sound on my own. Then you need to ensure that this volume is somewhere in the center. You need to ensure that when you're talking this green indicator we do there should not be crossing the middle point. Otherwise, you may get a lot of noise in your recordings. Then we have this optional mute timeline during recording, keep this checked always. And then you have a panel here, area where you can have your script which you want to record type here, or you can even paste it. We're going to paste it. So right-click and I only have some script loaded on my cursor, I'm going to paste it. So as you must have noticed that this panel makes it quite easy for your wise notation. And now to start recording, you need to click on Start was recording and read out your script. So the wives recording has started. I normally clapped wife before starting, and then I start recording the audio narration. Start by getting your hands on the best microphone you can find. Even a middle of the road Mike will provide much better sound quality than the one built into your computer. Then find a quiet place to record. The Camtasia video editor makes it simple to record your voice over with built-in voice narration. When you are ready, record this script and make sure to speak slowly and clearly. If you make a mistake, don't start over. Simply pause and start again right before you made the mistake. You can always remove mistakes when you are finished. So the recording, which I will doing has finished. And now I can stop the recording. So I get this option of saving the narration and the five formative given. That's the only file format in which you can see with that is dot m for a. So let's save it. And after you've saved it, you will find that you are reporting has come onto the timeline. Other objects are not matching the wise negation, so I want to just pull them and bring it to the same duration. So friends, that is how you require them. Why is negations in Camtasia? In subsequent videos, we will learn how to remove noise and how to improve our y's narrations and audio till then, take care and happy learning. 27. Audio Effects : Part 1: Hi friends. In this video, I will explain to you about audio effects in Camtasia. Using this, you can create certain changes in your audio. So to access the audio effects, you need to go down to the Audio Effects panel. Click on this, and you have these six options. The first one is audio compression. And now using this or you can even out the audio in your clip, like if you have too much of variation in loudness, all that can be controlled by using audio completion. Then you have this option of clips speed. Using this, you can change the speed of your audio. You can play it faster, or you can pay it slower, then you have this option of emphasized. Now what emphasize does it that when you apply to a clip that becomes prominent and all other clip that audio clips gets subdued. So that's very good for when you are trying to create any kind of relation. I will explain to you about this in detail in a separate video. Then you have this option of feed in. So if you want to fade it in a gradual manner, you can use this effect and then you'll have fade out. Same thing, but it applies to the end of your clip. Then you have this option of noise, the removal. This again is a very nice option which has been given using this in case you have some constant noise, maybe a humming noise in the background or from your machine or from a fan. All that can be taken care of. So now let me just demonstrate few. I'll be demonstrating in this video about the noise removal and clip speed. And then in other videos I tackles the other options. Or in fact, I will let you know about noise removal, clip speed, and audio compression. This particular video and others we will tackle in a separate video altogether. So let us play this clip, which I have on the timeline. Now you must have realized that I have a lot of disturbance in this clip initially because I left a fan on. Now I can take care of this in Camtasia, will just get hold of this noise removal clip. Press your left mouse button and drag it onto the clip to which you want it to be applied and leave the left mouse. Now in Properties panel, you will not do that. You've now got certain details like sensitivity or amount. You can click on, Analyze to analyze it. And this is what the software ahead in life for us. Now let's just listen to this. You must have noticed that it has taken care of the disturbance or noise quite well. What suppose you have certain Illinois still there, then you can increase the sensitivity. Normally I leave it at three. You can, to avoid getting your own sound distorted, you can reduce this amount. So I normally keep it at about seven. And let's see now, Camtasia makes sense some point or I are at 3. No. So I need to include the amount of it. About 14. See Camtasia next at some point or I create a list is quite okay to me. In fact, let me just go to analyze then that is what it says. So That's fine. Okay, yours on Windows and Mac. So this is how you can take care of any kind of noise which is there in your audio. Now let me just explain to you about clip speed. First, let me do away with noise removal or let it be there. So if you apply clip speed in a similar manner, now you will notice here that the speed is 1 x, this is normal displayed MH. Make sense some point, but right now, everyone to make it faster, we could go here and make it 1.50. And now let's play it at it. I've been told that you don't need a fascinating video editing was funny, isn't it? So this kind of a thing you may like to use it in case you want to have a funny clip going on or you want to add some kind of a cartoon voice for that purpose, this could be handy. Now let's see if I make it 2.50. What happens? And it has made your clip play slower and that will by distorting the recording. Otherwise, again, you have to decide where you want to use it. I seldom used these kind of effects, but it is available to you and go ahead and make use of it. So let me just delete this clip speed from here. Another thing which I want to explain to you is audio compression. Right now, you must have noticed that there are places where the picture the high or low, or I create professional looking video. Now, if I want to normalize is and even the volume out, I can do it by using audio compression. So if I grab hold of this and I put it on the track, you must have noticed how the audio track has now got evened out. And you also get the option here. And you can use them like medium, custom, high, low. You can work with it and see how it helps you out. Now let's play this. All we know that Mac is great. You don't need a big budget or FASEA meet your goals. Start with that template. Or just like all of you. You can also increase the volumes up and down by grabbing hold of this line here and pulling it up or down. You have experience on us by making a video, right, friends. So in this video, explained to you about audio effects, and I also explained how to use noise removal, clip speed, and audio completion. In other videos, I'm going to explain to your board, emphasize, fade in and fade out. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 28. Audio Effects : Part 2: Hi friends. In the last video and audio effects Part 1, I explained to you generally about audio effects, and I also explained to you how to use noise removal, how to use clips speed, and how to use audio compression. In this video, we are going to learn how to use fade in and fade out and emphasize. So let me just demonstrate this to you. I have a music clip on the timeline and let's play this. You know, you must have realized that the audio clip and just started abruptly and we can make it more effective if be freed in the audio. Know similarly, if we go to the end of the track, the audio stopped abruptly. Now we could fade this out for it to be a better audio. So let's see how we can do that for every take this faded effect and drop it onto the clip. See how this has now feeding L naught this dot here. We can grab it and we can even smooth it out further if you want to. I just did the viewer. Now let's play this. Now this is a much better way of starting an audio. Now let's apply this fade out to the clip. And you must have noticed now that towards the end it's tapering down. So let's go down here and play this slowly tapering down. Now that sounds much better to the years. And you can also taper it down further as I've done. So this is how you use fade in and fade out on any kind of audio clip which you want to. So next, let's have a look at what did emphasize for that. Let me just bring in an aeration clip. So I'll go down to media and I have a clip here. Let me drag this down. And this narration is yes. And now if I play the audio clip now, in this video my aim was to have a very low sounding music as background music so that the audio narration looks interesting. But what is happening that because the volume is so high that the voice narration is getting drowned into the music. So we can help. How can we help? We can go down to Audio Effects. And from here, we can use emphasize. So you need to drag this and drop it down on the voice narration. Know what, emphasize, Doug, if you drop it on a clip, other clips are going to be subdued. So let's see what I'm trying to say. By demonstration. The drag it and put it on the narration clip. And let's now play this. Makes it so much better. So the music has been now subdued and the y's narration is coming out pretty good. But you also have this option here. If you want, you can reduce them further by going ahead or you can make it louder. That's entirely up to the requirement of your project. Either leave it at about 86%, that should be fine. Let's play it again. Next at some point. So friends in this video, I explained to you about fade in and fade out and how to use them. And I also explained to you how you can emphasize and audio narration. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 29. Annotations - Part 1: Hi friends. In this video, we're going to learn about annotations. It's a big subject annotations and what does an invitations do for us? It helps us to explain, emphasize, then elucidate our ideas using Camtasia. To access annotations, we need to go down here and click on annotations. And you'll get this panel. And we have a number of tabs. So there are a large number of annotations which we can use in our presentation. The first one is call-outs. Then you have a set of arrows, you have a set of shapes, have blood and highlights. You have sketch motion, and you have keystroke call-outs. We're going to go into the details of all of these in this particular video, we'll learn about the columns, will learn about the arrows and shapes. And in the next video, we will work with special call-out such as blood and highlights, sketch motion, and keystroke call-outs. So let's see what our call-outs on this drop-down list here. If we click, you have many kinds of fallout like abstract, basic board, oven and user. Right now we have basic open. You can abstract, you have abstract open. If you click on More, you have bold call-outs, which are here, go down here and click on Urban if you have a different set of colors. And if you click here on user, any call-outs which you create yourself, you can see right here. If you click on all the, all the call-outs will be listed and you can choose from any to create a call-out in your presentations, you need to click on that and drag it onto the canvas. And then you can resize the object that I'm doing. Now, colleagues obviously are there to display text. So you can just type in whatever you want to. So I've typed in some text. As you can see, you select this text and you'll find that on the right side we have the properties panel using which you can change the attributes of the text. So let's say that we want to use this font here, articulate extra bold, click on it, and their returns become bold. Now, you can also change the attributes in terms of, you can make it regular italic. You can make it bold. You can make it bold italic. Let's leave it at bold. You can kinda size of the text which you've entered by using this slider as I am doing right now. You can also tune the alignment like right now it is center aligned. You can make it left aligned. You can make it a right aligned, and you can get it to center aligned. Or you can also change the vertical spacing and horizontal spacing. So let's see what does that mean? Fee, how we're changing the spacing of this. So as per the requirement of your product, you can play around with that and let it be as you want to. And then you can also change the horizontal spacing. Then we'll get back to somewhere around 0. Now you can also change the color of the text. If you get hold of it, go down here and click on this box, you get a pen, I'm using this, you can tune the color of the text. Let's make it to black. So we can do a lot to our text. Now, also the callout itself. If you click on this tab from here, you can change the fill. So either you can have solid color or gradient. We'll go with solid color. Click. We have options. Let's say you want to have the background as great, so you can click on this. In fact, Great would not show out because we had great texture. We're going to change it to, let's say, light blue. And there it is. So this is how you can change the attributes. You also have these options, opacity, something below there. You can turn the opacity of the call out. You can change the outline. If you grab a hold of it. You can make it to maybe dotted lines. And you can increase the thickness that I'm doing right now or you can reduce the thickness. Another thing which is there on this, if you right-click and you apply block textile, see there are changes which have taken place in your text. So there's a nice way of using some kind of special effect in your captions. Call-outs, whatever you want to call it. So friends in this video, I explained to you about the callout. Let's put this here on a corner. I just want to explain to you few more aspects. You can also draw arrows. Now you have again, many options like abstract. You have basic arrows. You have bold, you have open, and you have user, which I don't have any so far. So let's say that we want to take something from basic arrows to draw it. You need to just grab it, drag it here and there it is. Now once again, using the Properties panel, we can change the color. Let's say we want a red arrow, this color. We can do that. We can increase the size by dragging it around, doing it and also the direction can be changed. You can change the thickness of this arrow. You can see. And you can also change the opacity of this arrow. So a lot we can do with the annotations which are there in Camtasia. So tryout fewer arrows and you will get a nice idea of how to use them. Then we have shapes. Once again, you have options are abstract, bold, R1, and user. Let's have a look at all the other shapes that are available to you. You can draw any shape and change their properties. Obviously, you will require the shifts only as per the requirement of your project. So let's take this and drag it. Here we are. You can grab hold of the handles and scale it, resize it the way you want to. Then from the properties panel, we can change the color. Click. Let's make this a blue color. We can change the opacity. Now, let us show you the benefit of getting the opacity. For the opacity, how we can see things which are below. We can again change the outline. So if we go to this and we can change the thickness of the outline as you can see. So you can format your objects that you create using annotations in a nice manner. And once again, even of the outline, you can change the opacity. So friends in this video, I gave you an insight into how to use annotations in your presentations or projects. And in this particular video, we are gone about and learn about using call-outs, arrows and shapes. And we've got almost all the concepts, right. We also learned how to use Properties panel to change the attributes and characteristics of the objects which we create using the annotations panels. In the next video, we'll learn about spatial call-outs, such as blood and highlights will learn about sketch motion and we'll learn about keystroke. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 30. Annotations - Part 2: So picking up that thread from the last video, we are going to learn about few more kinds of annotations in this video. And they are interesting ones. So first one here is the blood and highlight annotations. There are special annotations and they have a specific role to play. I've got few elements here on the canvas to demonstrate to you the use of these annotations. Now first of them is the blur. In case you want to blend something. Maybe that you have a password which you're entering to demonstrate. And you want to blur it out so you can use this. We will see how the object has got now blurred. L here in the Properties panel, you have a slider using which you can adjust the blur. You can also inward. Interaction takes place when you are at heightened budding up. Notice that the main object is visible on which you applied the blur filter. But all the other elements on the canvas, they have been blurred out. Let's get back to normal. So this can be very handy and useful in case you want to obscure certain sensitive information. Let me just delete this. It can also be useful if you are putting up a photo of a person talking something about them, but you do not want to reveal the identity. In that case, you can take the blur filter and place it on the face and see how it gets blurred. And then the next one is spotlight. This again is a very interesting annotation. You drag it out based on what you want to build, spotlight and see how other areas have dimmed out. And if you want to totally obscure it, you can do that by using the slider here. So this can be quite useful when you are demonstrating something and you want the attention of the viewer only to be on one place or spot. So let's delete this also. The third one is the highlight. This also useful. Suppose you have some text on your canvas and you want to highlight certain area. You could draw it out. You can place it where you want the highlight to be. And you can scale it down. And once again, you can have the opacity adjusted. And you can also clean the color. So they're all quite simple to use. You just need to understand what needs to be done. So let's delete this. Now. The last one is pixelate and other basic concept of applying all these are the same. Let's say you want to pixelate the face of this lady so that nobody else nor the bottom. So you can put it there and then you pixelated the face. And you can vary the intensity by using the slider. I think something here would be appropriate, right? Let's delete this. Now let's get on with sketch motion. For when you click on this tab, you have the sketch motion annotations. They are very good in case you want to focus the attention or draw the attention of your viewer to a particular spot. Let's say I want the attention to be drawn to my password. So I could just take it, bring it here and place it on top. You have to ensure that it covers the area and you played and you will notice that how it works. So it anyways and straight away, draw the attention of the viewer to a given area. Again, have the option of changing the thickness of the annotation. You can also vary the time if we wanted slower, you can increase the time if you want it faster, you can renew the time. You can also change the color. We'll leave it at red and let's see now. So it is drawing very slowly. If I bring the draw time back, Let's play it. It's 0, so certainly drawn there. Let me everything into somewhere here. Let's delete this. Now let's say you want this text which is written there to be pointing towards this girl. That means it's pertains to that girl. We could take an arrow. Let's bring it out here. Let's take the arrow to the beginning. And then we could allow grabbing this, turning it around, and we can save it up. And there it is. So these are nice effects and an rotations which will straightaway focus the attention of your viewer to the given subject. And once again, you can change the color, you can change the thickness, you can change the time concept is still the same. Let's delete this. And the last one I want to talk to you about are the keystroke call-outs. So when you are, let us say, creating a tutorial to explain something about the software. And you want that students must do something based on keystrokes. And you want those keystrokes to be also coming on the screen for the EV understanding of this fruit and you can do that. So we have this selected and dry it out on the stage. There it is. Again, change the, for example, if I press ascii, theater chains two. And if I now press Shift and nine, you'll get controlled plus 9, that means you need to press control and nine. So these are nice annotations which will teach something to your target audience. So friends in this video, I explained to you few special annotations like blue, spotlight, highlights and Pixelate. And then I also explained to you about Sketch motions. And I explained to your bot keystroke call-outs. And this being such to the end of the annotation aspect of Camtasia. You can use this to our advantage in your presentations and do try and practice how you are going to be using it to build and elucidate or explain your story. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 31. Using Behaviors: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to learn how to use behaviors in our projects while using Camtasia. So what are behaviors? When you apply a behavior to an object, it adds a fluid motion to that object. I'll just explain to you what that really means. And you add behaviors by going down to this tab here, behaviours and clicking on it. When you do that, a panel comes up. Behaviors not didn't presets. These are all pre-built motions which you can apply to an object, whether it be a text or a picture, or even a video if you want to move it around or faded out. All that can be done. In Camtasia 2021, you have 12 kind of pre-built behaviors. And the good thing is that as you take your cursor to those behaviors, you'll get a feedback as to what kind of motion is going to get applied if you use that behavior. So let's go to drifting, and this is what it is then explored. Then fed, fly-in, pop up, jump and fall. Pulsating, reveal. Shifting, scaled, sliding. And typewriter. Typewriter obviously can only be applied for good effect to text. Others can be applied to any kind of object which you are using in your product. So let's apply one and see what it does. So let's say we want to apply this proper behavior to the texts which are written here. So you just click on it and you drag it onto that particular object and it gets applied. Right. When it gets applied, you would not do that in the properties panel, a new tab with appeared with certain properties, which I shall talk about in a moment. Let me just demonstrate to you what this particular behavior has done to our text. So there are texts pops up, and then there is a movement which takes place in between and then it exists or gets away from the Canvas. So this is what actually be where does not. Let me explain to you the various properties. So once we have used a behavior, you get a tab here, says Popup. And there are certain options like here we have three tabs in during an hour. That means you can control various properties while it moves end and while it's still on the stage or canvas, and while it goes out or exit, let's just understand this. And this butler one, we have styled hinge. And if you click here from the drop-down list, you can select any kind of option like bounce and drifting, fair, then fly and grow, hinge, implored. You can also make it as none, reveal, shifting and sliding. Leave it to the difficult. Then the type you have options, how it gets typed in. So ever complete object or text, right here. It says first to last. And there are many options you can play around with this and see what it does. It is not possible for me to demonstrate all in a short video. And then you also have the direction from v direction. It should come in left, right, top, bottom. Then you have tension. You can use this slider to include attention or reduce the tension. And it can also add an offset so you can play around with all these settings and see what best suits your requirement. Now here, if you noticed that while the object is on stage, there is a movement which I don't want. So you can go to during and from your style. You can select none for now, they'll be no movement in that and I will see others have vanished from here. Let me display this again. So it comes in with a fluid motion, but now there is no motion, but there is again motion when it goes out of the canvas. So this is how you can control the appearance of an object using behavior you apply the fluid motion and you can adjust the behaviors using this particular properties panel. Now in case you don't want the behavior and you want to add some other behavior. You can go down here, you have a cross sign, you can click on it and the applied behavior now gets deleted. Now to text, you can also apply this typewriter effect. Let's grab hold of it and let's go on. Plight. And there it is. So let's now, let us see now your Texas government and typewritten of it. Again, you have options of tending the property. We can play around with it and see what best suits your requirement of the project. Behaviors can also be applied to any kind of object. So here we have an image on the timeline. We will apply a certain area, so this and see how it works out. So let's get to love drifting and applied to it. And let's play this. Now let's delete this behavior and go down to explode. And let's apply this. No explored works out very well with textile. Demonstrate that to you. And again, you can delete those barriers. And let's say you want to now apply, jump and fall. So you grab it and apply this, and let's play this. So I'm sure you got the idea of what the errors are all about. I will delete this behavior which will apply to this. And I just want to explain to you this behavior that is explored. Here we have it. Let's grab it and drag it to the object to which we want to apply on the stage. Liver left mouse, and that gets applied. Now let's go back and let's play this. See how game. And so using these kinds of behaviors, you can create very nice fluid motions on an object. And that would attract the attention of the viewer. Everything which moves all with attracts our attention and behaviors very effective in doing that. So I've explained to you whatever there is to using behaviors and your products. Now go ahead and experiment with behaviors. You must play around. You must make as many animations using behavior. So that would totally understand what it is all about. So friends, That's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 32. Animations - Part 1: So friends in this video, we are going to learn about animations. You can create animations in two ways. In Camtasia, you can use this animation panels or you can use the behaviors panels about behaviors I've spoken in a separate video altogether. In this video we'll learn about animations. Now when you click on animations, you get two options to create animation. The first is zoom and pan, about Zoom and fan. We'll learn in a separate video altogether. Then you'll get animations. And now within animations, you have option of creating custom animation or you can use the presets which are available to you. We are going to be learning about using the research in this particular video. We'll learn about custom animations in the next video, and then we will learn about zoom and pan animations in the third video. Right now, why do we require to use animation? So if you want to attract and retain the attention of your learner or of your viewer. I think animations are the best way to do because the human eye and mind gets attracted to motion. That's a fact, and that is why animations are so important when it comes to using any video making software. And especially so in Camtasia, like having said that, now we get onto creating animations with presets. Now we are having a large number of presets here like full opacity know capacitated store. I'm going to explain a few of them because the concept for each row stays the same. So let's say we grab hold of this no opacity and we drop it onto the timeline. Now here I would like to explain to you that in Camtasia, if you are going to be creating animation, the presets in the animation panel at least to be dragged and dropped on the timeline. If you drop it on the object, there will be no effect. Like once you drop this will find a small arrow buttons up here. Let's just play this. So see how it gradually faded away. The texts that you would want this animation preset will supposed to do. If you grab, hold off the front or back of this arrow and extended. You are increasing that time for which the animation going to play. Let's play it again. And now let me explain to you the inside story. What is happening in this arrow is your animation duration. For smaller it is, it will prefer a smaller time, the larger it is in length, it is going to play for the longer time. The tail of this arrow is one keyframe, which is the initial position of your object and the head. Another keyframe, which is the end state of your animation. And that is why what we are doing it happening. I'm sure you've got the idea. Now, I would like to explain to her the properties panel value are on this tab. You have various options in the properties panel like scale. You can scale your object to set the initial state or the end stage as you want to. You also have this opacity slider. You can use it to set the initial state or the end state of the opacity, then you have the rotation. You can also set the rotation within your object on z, x axis. So what makes Camtasia interesting that it lets you rotate objects in the x axis and z axis and y axis. That's, that's something good. And then if the position, this x, y, and read position are the positions on the canvas of your objects. Or let's say, if I put this as 200 and press Enter, see how the position of the object has changed. For that, let me say that I make it to 60 and press Enter. See how it has become a bit bigger. So let's make all this to 0. And here also let's make this to 0. And it'll go on into the center. So that is the concept which you need to understand. Let's delete this first row and the next term. Let me now explain a few more presets to. Now let's say we want to apply this scale down so it didn't grab it and put it on our timeline. Now, if we go back and we play this, see how from the original for these in the object has scaled down to a smaller position. If I increase the length of the arrow, the motion is going to be much slower than what it was earlier. And remember that all this can be adjusted from this properties panel. We are going to learn to you the property panel much more in the next video when we work on custom animations, right, Let's now delete this. The moment to delete the animation, your object returns back to its original position. Let's now try scale to fit every drop it here. And you can place this arrow anywhere on your timeline for the object, let's say we place it here. And now let's play this. Animation has now scaled up and it has, since it was scaled to fit, it is gone and of pipe the entire space on this screen. So all these presets you can use to create your own animation in the timeline, you would sequence objects and apply these animations and make it like a story. Let's delete this animation. And let's say we apply this scale up. Now let's see what happens. So to a given position, as we have said here, on the scale, it is scaled up. I'm quite sure by now, you must be realizing that how easy it is to use presets and create animations. Let us delete, and I'm going to use one more to give you another idea, tilt lift. Let's just place it here. And now what's happening is if I play the animation, see how this is moved and touched it a bit. You can see the perspective chain is straight away. We can make it tilt more. So if I select the end state, length of the arrow a bit, I've selected the end state, the keyframe area become red now. And if I make this tool instead of 30 to 60 and enter it, see how it is tilted more. Let's play this. Now, these animations or precess can also be applied to images and videos. In fact, any object that you place on the canvas. Using them, you can make your videos very interesting and you will be able to attract and retain the attention of your viewer or learner, whoever it is. So for instance, this video I explained to you how to use preset animations. And in the next video we will learn about custom animation and happy learning. 33. Animations - Part 2: So friends, in this video we will learn about creating custom animations. In the previous video, we had an insight into what animations are and what are the tools which we need to use to create animations in Camtasia. Now let's get down to brass tacks. So to create custom animations, we need to go down to the animations panel, grab hold of custom animation, bring it down to the timeline and drop on it. Now we get a small arrow. But, you know, nothing is going to happen because animation has been applied. Let me just drag in and clear the side of this arrow to have a better view. So this is the position of the animation or size of the object which is right in front of you lecture that I want to start from a smaller objects either and then get onto this particular size of what we need to do is we need to get down here to the beginning keyframe, and that is the tail of the arrow. And we need to scale this down. So I'm going to scale it down from here. Just watch me. I'm using the properties panel to scale down this. Now let's watch this. So now I had full control over the animation. There was no research involved. I created exactly what I wanted to. Now let's say that I want to, with this selected, I want to rotate and make it come vertical here. So for that, what I can do it, I can grab hold of this rotation handle, turn it on and keep it at this juncture. Bring it down here. And now let's view the animation. I hope you're getting the idea. It is quite easy to create animations in Camtasia, there are tools available. You just need to understand the concept. So this was how you create basic animation. Now, let me delete this animation and let me demonstrate filtering. We have this selected and we are going to scale it up to a larger size. Let's drop a custom animation somewhere around here. So grab hold of the custom animation, drag it and drop it on the timeline. Let me once again remind you that animations you have to apply to the timeline. You cannot apply it to the object and expect something to happen, it will not happen. So drag it down to the timeline and you can now customize it the way you want to. So we have just brought in and put in the arrow. The tail is the D frame where the animation will begin. And the arrows head is the keyframe where the animation is going to end. So this is your beginning state of animation and the arrowhead is the end state of your animation. Now what I want to explain to you here is that width, the keyframe at the arrow, the head selected. Hi, I'm going to go down here and I'm going to just see what is the effect we are trying to achieve. And we're going to type in minus 3, 6, 0, and Enter. And now let's go back and play this idea. I'm sure you got the idea. Now, let's make it back to 0. Let's go down to the rotation and now make it, let's say minus 3, 6, 0. Now see you two are going to now spin on the y-axis. And what does it look like? Let's have a look at it. How cool this is. Another one which I want to show. And before you apply any animation, you need to ensure that you have the keyframes selected. So here at the arrows had this red.me. The key head is elected. If I click somewhere else, it is now not selected less I go and click here and become white so that you're not select it. Let's select this again. Then only the animation will end the way we want to. Now going down to the x-axis, Let's now type in 3, 6, 0, and enter. And less clear the animation. How cool, because I had two animations applied, the y-axis and the x-axis. Let's now make the x-axis and y-axis to be 0. And let's have a look at the animation now. There are so many permutation and combination which you can work with while creating custom animation and all that. You need to use this properties panel here. And you need to scale the object. You need to make it transparent or semi-transparent or opaque. If you need to, give it the desired rotation and you need to start Trump Alisha and get onto the position. Let me just delete this. And I'm just going to show you a very simple animation between come in handy to we want to move this from here to here. So what I want to do is I am going to again grab hold of a custom animation, bring it down here. And with the end state keyframes selected, we're going to grab this. You could even do it by changing the position here, but not that I want to do it in real-time. Grab hold of this, move it, and position it here. So now let's see. And let's just make the direction slightly more. And let's try it now. So in this video, I will explain to you how to use the custom animation and create custom animations. I explained you how to scale, how to make your objects transparent. I explained to you the various rotations that is there to y and x axis rotations. And I also explained to you the positions and I gave his heart and demonstrations. Now you go ahead and mix and match these animations. Create a real-world animation for maybe about 10 seconds or so. And user B, it will do a nice goatee using animations. That's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 34. Animations - Zoom and Pan: So friends in this video, we are going to learn about the zoom and pan animation. Now this animation is very useful value are teaching a class something about a software application. Like we have a captured screen as you can see, but certain areas of the screen like this tool panels here can barely be seen. So we can zoom in, have a look at it closely, and then we can pan to show other areas of that toolbar. Let me explain this with a demonstration. To access the zoom and pan animation, you need to go down here to animations. And from the animations panel you need to click on this tab, zoom and pan. So now you get a representation of the area which you captured using Camtasia. And you have around it and elastic bounding box. And there are various handles which will help you to zoom inside. So to zoom in area, we can grab hold of one of the handles and move in there. See how we are now zooming into a particular area. I want to show this pen to my class. So I'm just going to zoom in a bit further. And there it is. Now it is very clear. And my class can't see this very well. I also now want to show them all the tools which are on this bar. So I'm going to pan. And to pan all that you need to do, you'll grab hold of this and move up or down in that area. And now we are battling. All this is getting recorded in real time. Now if you want to switch onto the full-screen, you can come here and click on a scale to fit. I also want to explain to you that this slider here zoom slider also does the same job. You can zoom in and then you can grab hold of this and move into the area which you want to show. But why should I do this? I find to grab a corner of this clastic bounding box and then zoom in a much better practice. And when I'm done with this icon, we weren't back to the full screen easily by clicking on scale to fit. So this animation is going to be of great help to educators and teachers who want to explain the use of some software applications or anything on the screen, for example, you are explaining something about web page and you want to zoom in into a particular area, you can do that too. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 35. Cursor Effects: So friends in this video, we're going to learn how to use cursors. In fact, rather cursor effects when you are working in Camtasia to explain something, maybe a software. You may like to ensure that when you are moving your mouse cursor to do some kind of task, or to do some kind of action, or to click some button to point towards certain area. Your learner should be able to follow your cursor to that point. But for that purpose, having cursor effects is of great importance. Where do you get the cursor effects? To get the cursor, if I go down to the media panel and click here on cursor effects. And there you have options, like you can create cursor highlights. You can create cursor magnify. You can smoothly or cursors, and you can also have cursor spotlight will learn about few of these and the same concept will apply to the other so you can sort off, explore on your own. Then you also have certain special effects for left-click and right-click. We'll learn about this in a separate video altogether. So let's get back to cursors now to apply cursor affects, what we need to do is grab hold of the concern cursor effect and drag it down to the timeline. And you will find that the cursor has now changed. That also here, a small white dotted line has come through. Click on it. Affect which has been applied, is now visible to you. If you click on it, it gets selected. I'll scrub the head to see what the cursor does. So then our cursor is now moving and edge here. When you look into the Properties panel, the cursor's have got certain property which can be chained like first of all, you the color, you click on it. We can change the color. Let's say we want to take a green color. That in fact, let's take a darker one. There it is. You can also change the opacity so you can interact with the left and becoming more transparent. You can also change the size of the cursor if you go towards the right and become bigger. If you go to the left, Britain becoming smaller. And then you can change the softness of the cursor as I'm doing right now, you can make it hard or soft. So these settings will be as per the requirement of a project. I can't dictate that too. Okay, now let's scrub through. And when this cursor retail here, I want this cursor to die down and a new cursor that will be magnified cursor to come up. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to grab this and move it. Follow what I am doing that is very important. And move it somewhere here. Then we'll check whether we're right or not. Let me get back to the playhead. In fact, we need to move it to the playhead. So there it is. Let's just go back and play up to this base. Sometimes in this video we are going to learn how to draw shapes. To draw shapes along the left toolbar, start moving. Since we have reduces the Kersten has now vanished. I want a different cursor here, and that demagnified cursor. So we're going to grab this and we're going to drop it onto the timeline and see how another line has come up here. Garcia, I'm a five, which denotes cursor magnify. Grab hold of this, bring it down to the starting point. And we want this to be applicable till we are on top of this. And then here also. And then till this point, right? So we will grab hold of this end here and bring it down to the playhead. This will serve our purpose. Now see what else we can do with this selected. We can change the size of the incentives, go right to the beginning. We came the size of this, let's say you want to make the size a bit bigger this much, and we also want to zoom in a bit. That should be fine. You can also create shadows and softness, but I think that's not required in this particular let us see the softness, but no, I wouldn't leave it as hard. Ease in and ease out. I don't require. So now let's scrub the head of the playhead and go to the left. And let's start playing from here. Can draw shapes along a gold bar, start moving from top to bottom. And one that I add cycle, which the shape tools click on it and you'll get this balance. There are many options to choose from. Let's go around here and there's rounded rectangle tool. And the moment you will choose this tool, you'll find that on top the contextual toolbar has the different options available. So friends, you must have realized by now that by using the magnify. So what's happening? I don't have to zoom into that area. That cursor itself is helping me by zooming in and showing me those smaller area which are not otherwise visible. So from that point of view curve. So magnifier is quite a handy tool. Now these other ones also work in the same manner to apply them, you can use the same concept. You will get the same kind of details here and you will be able to work on them. And as I explained, all the properties can be changed from this properties panel. Now before we end, I just want to explain to another thing. There is a cursor movement here, which I want to explain. So for that, I am going to go down here and grab the head and here. So I want the cursor to be magnified here to be able to explain this area. So I'm going to apply another cursor magnify so you can apply the same person twice, or maybe even more. Put it there and I'm going to drag this one with Kim recently up to the playhead. And let me see up to what point do I require it? Up to here, I'll require it. So I'm going to do and drag this back here. Now let us live from your MC what it does. I guess you want to change the color of now since this is a new club, so you will require to tune the properties once again. So let me increase the size of B magnify cursor. You can see. Let me also obtain the zoom area so that you can see it clearly. And I think that should suffice. So let's play it now. The fill color. So we'll see how the correlation IN case you want to change the color of the outline, then you'll have to select this circle which is on top. How you are being able to firstly draw the attention of the learner to a point and then you are being able to zoom in and explained to him your point of view had let given point in your video tutorials. So that's very nice to be able to do that by using cursors. And from that point of view, learning about how to go sir, effect is very important. And let's say we want to know outlines or clicker, and then the outline has changed. So that has all. This is what I wanted to explain to us. Various cursor effects are concerned. In the next video, I'll explain to your cursor clicks and give special effects which you can create when you click your left or right mouse. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 36. Visual Effects - Overview: Hi friends. In this video, I will discuss with you about the visual effect in Camtasia. To access a visual effects, you need to go down here to visual effects. And you now have it on this panel. There are a total of 13 visual effects in Camtasia, which you can apply to the objects to make it visually more appealing. We have border. Using this, we can put a border around an object, then you have clips speed. Using this, you can create variations in the pitch of an audio clip. Then you have color adjustments. Using this, you can adjust color in either any major and video you can apply, collect into an object. You can colorize an object. You can round the corner of an object. This has been introduced in this was shut off Camtasia. You can use a device frame to frame your object. You can drop shadow. You can apply a goal to an object on the canvas. You can also create an interact to hotspot using an object. You can use media Mattie to mosque and object. You can also create a motion blur on a moving object. And you can remove color, node, remove color in there. Very useful options available in visual effects. Red and you can create a green screen kind of effort by removing the background color. So friends, as you must have noticed that there are plenty of options are available to make your object visually more appealing. And we're going to learn about them in subsequent videos. Take and happy learning. 37. Borders and Shadows: In this video, we are going to be learning about borders and about shadows. And then subsequently we will learn about the other visual effect. So I would like to demonstrate this because words really weren't explained this to you. So what I am going to do first is I'm going to draw out a shape. Here. It will make this area white on this. Let's import. In fact, I have a media here. So I'm going to grab this and bring it on to the stage, resize it, make it a bit smaller. Now here we have an object to this. We can apply a border for that. We will go down here to visual of it and grab hold of this border visual effect, drag it onto the clip. So it's been applied, but we can't really see anything. So we need to go down here to the properties panel. And here you can see the border section. And this slider, this is thickness and the color is white so it won't show. So let's, let's say make it orange. That's fine. Let's have our orange border. And now let's crank up the thickness, see how the thickness is going up. I think let's take it to this level. So there we have created a border for our image. Now, let's go down to the visual effects panel and pick up or drop shadow and drag it on again to the clip. So now we have options here below in drop shadow. Let me bring this up panel. First of all, the angle you can have any angle for your drop shadow. Using this, as you can see, you can also use this or give a direct value here, but I prefer to use this. And I'll go for this. That looks the best to me. Then you can choose color. From the drop-down list. You have many choices. And black and that's fine. On a white background or black will always look good. Then you can change the offset as per your requirement. But this would be a bit too much. So I'm going to go to somewhere here. Then you have the option of opacity. So you can play around with this. It should be not too much, but it would be somewhere where you can make out letters there, the shadow which are dropping. I think they should be fine. Then you have this slider which lets you help the blur. Now this, you try it out. I would like to have it somewhere here. Now for applying these settings, there cannot be a hard and fast rule. You have to judge for yourself what appeals to you, what would appeal to your target audience, and what is the requirement of your product, right trend. So in this video, I explained to you how to use border and drop shadow visual effects on an object. And this is the procedure which you need to follow for any kind of object to which you want to give a border or two drop shadows. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 38. Color Adjustment, Colorize and Tint: So friends in this video, we are going to learn to apply a few more visual effects to our objects on the screen. And the ones which we are going to learn about, it going to be color adjustment, colored tent, colorize, and glow. Now these are very simple effects using which you can make a difference to your images. You there only if it is absolutely essential because I do not really find it to be your own extraordinary. So for color adjustments, grab this with your left mouse, drag it and drop it onto your photo. And this ab initio D saturates the image as you can see and hear on the Properties panel under color adjustment section, you have three sliders using this you can make Jane did not. This is applicable to photos and videos. To grab all of this, we can reduce the brightness, uh, we can reduce the contrast and we can also saturate if you want to and get damage to some workable kind of a thing. So this is how you use color adjustments. Let's now delete this color adjustment aspect and learn about color. Click on this. So for colored tint again, you got to grab it and drop it on the event and one kind of kiloton comes up. And as you will see here, that our light tones and dark tones, you can change it. Let's say we make this light tone to green and make this to red. And now you have two sliders. We are intensity and D saturate. So let's work on it. If we want to reduce the intensity, go left. If you want to include intensity, go right. I think somewhere here should we find you can also do that to it. Or you can saturate extra laps, delete this. And now let's talk about cholera. Cholera is dealing with one color. Only. Grab it and drop on this. This is how you color either an object. And you have this slider here about amount. You can change the amount of colorization which you want to do here. You can also tune the colors. Let's say you want to take blew their letters. And let's say we want to take read. These changes will take place if you go up at a lower, I think this makes sense having done so, if you want to delete this effect, you can again go here and click on this X sine here, and there it is gone. Now the last one which I want to explain to you is glow gravity to buy the left mouse and drop it on an object can see how a glow had gone. So in case you want to use this kind of effect, maybe in a fairy tale story or something. You can do it. And you can change the radius of the blue as you can see. You can also turn the intensity of the growth. There is nothing. This one looks a bit more realistically. And then too much there. Well, it's entirely up to you how you want to do that. I have explained to you the method of using weed. And once again, you can delete this section in case you do not need it anymore or you don't want do that, right, friends. So in this video, I explained to you how to use visual effects as concerns, color adjustments, colored tent, colorize, and grow. They do help you to make some difference in your images, audio, and video, but use it with caution in the sense that until an unlettered and absolutely necessary, avoid using these because they may create problems. But they do provide you with tools which can help you. So that's it for this video. Take care and happy learning. 39. Using device frames: So French, In this video, we will learn about an interesting visual effect and that is the device for him to use the device frame. You can use it either on the timeline or you can apply it to the object on the canvas. You can also use this effect both for the main canvas and for the webcam talking head which you capture you can use for that too. Now, let us say that we want to use it for the complete captures. All that you need to do is drag it to the state agency how within that particular frame you are in time subject to this, uh, let us pick objects, adding some objects. So all that is now playing within this frame. And let's just delete this frame from here. Let's now just play this talking head within the device frame. For that, we need to get hold of the device frame from the real effects panel and drag it on here. And now we will not give that our talking head is within that device frame. We can take your eyes towards the properties panel. Towards the bottom, you have a drop-down list. Click on it and you can pick up any of the desktop, IPhone, MacBook Pro, Google Pixels. And you can also download more online library of condition. That is, this is the desktop. We can go to iPhone, we can go to MacBook Pro, and we can go to Google Pixels. I think to me, the MacBook Pro appeals the microfilms value return. And let's just split thickness. You can create various kinds of geometric shapes. So friends, in this video, I explained to you how to use the device frame a visual effect. And you can give your presentations audio project, a nice professional look by using these frames. So try it out and do download more from the online library of Camtasia so that you have a bigger library available with 22 tools from that search for this video, take care and happy learning. 40. Removing color: So friends in this video, we are going to learn about this visual effect that is, remove a color. This is a very useful visual effect. And especially if you are into green history. And by that I mean that if you take a video of yours off, I'd short or any other thing with a green screen at the back. Then using this visual effect that either remove a color, you can remove the green screen and make it transparent over the background. This is a very useful effect which is used especially when you are creating learning videos. I will be explaining this with the help of this photo because the concept like the zoom here we have a photo with a green background. To remove the green background, all that we need to do is grab hold of a, remove a color, put on this and see how the background has now got removed because this is the color which we had chosen earlier. You can pick up any color if you click here, you have charged up colors. You also have eye droppers. Much sense, this was the exact color. By default, it has got removed. So this is what you can use. Remove a color option in visual effects, you must be not saying that's green, sort of fringe line on this domain. Well, this can be taken care of. We have this set of sliders here. We can work on these like different. If I take it to the right, see the color of the fringe is changing. But if we take it towards the left, it is reducing and it's almost gone. If you want to make finite just meant you could work on tolerance To the right thing to be aware of any kind of distortions like what has come now, it's going bad. So let me just increase to the level where you find that it's working and leave it at that. We can also work with softness. And then a little bit too much. So if we go to the left, somewhere, somewhere here, to me, it looks okay. And then if you score, but I think this should work. So we have managed to d fringe this picture and now we've got a nice transparent image on a black background. You can set it for any kind of project which you are creating. So friends in this video, I explained to you how to use the remove a color visual effect, drawing it from here, and remove a background. It can be of any color. We took an example of Greenland screen, which are normally used when you want to create transparent, immediate or transparent headshots. And our video. So that's it for this video, take care and happy learning. 41. Using Media Matee: Hi friends. In this video, I'll explain to you about a visual effect known as media marketing. Now using this visual effect, we can mask a given area. May it be a video or an image? Now this can be best understood by a demonstration. So I just demonstrate this feature to before that, let me explain to you the setting here on the timeline. I have a motion graphic here at the bottom, and I have a video here on top. And the second one, again, I have motion graphic and I have a text on top. I'll demonstrate how we mask and play certain clips. Now let's say that this video which is there on top, if I go here, you can see right now it's just video on top of a motion background. So I can place this inside a shape hardware. Do that, we need to create a shape within which we want to play this particular video. So let me go down to annotations. Let me pick up this shape. I want to bring it here. And then pressing the shift key, enlarge it for it to be proportional. And this is what I want to play with it. Let me distribute the side of this a bit. I think this would be okay. Now having done that, you'll notice that this has come up where the playhead was. So I want to bring it here and drag it and cover the entire range. Now, what I need to do is I need to go down to visual effect and this media Maddie, this is the visual effect which is going to mask as per the ship, which I have taken. So I need to drag this and drop it on this ship and see how we did the video which I wanted to, and yet the background is now visible. But let me just play this for you. Sometimes say, Oh, I want with us expand on what green screen is all about as you can. I had a video of myself that's using a green screen. Like so this is looking much better than just a plain video which was placed on the screen earlier. You can use any shape to do that, and you can do that from the annotation panel. Now you can select both these items and you can move it and place it anywhere as by the requirement of your product lecture, we sit here and play it again. So fans in this CEO, I often ask, explain what green screen is all about. As you can see, I've taken up personally, I like this visual effect very much because this helps me to place my talking head inside our shape. That looks much more appealing to the eye is when you're playing your video. So that's it as far as putting our playhead or any kind of video inside a shape using media Mattie. One more aspect I want to demonstrate to you is putting a video background or a video inside texts for that, what I've done is I've got a motion background at the bottom and I've got the text over it. All that I need to do is go down here to media Mattie and drag it and drop onto the text and see how it has no mass the video. And let me just go down here. So using this kind of an effect and using media metrics to create this kind of an effect. You can create very nice visual effects within your project. And just kind of a text animation as I've shown, can be very handy for intros of any kind of video which you're creating. So friends in this video, I explained to you how to use the media Mattie visual effect and how to place a talking head or within a shape, and how to also place a video inside texts. So that's it for this video, take care and happy learning. 42. Using corner rounding: Hi friends. In this video, we are going to learn how to use a visual effect known as corner rounding. To apply that effect, we need to go down to the visual effects balance. So click here. And then we have this corner rounding. Not to apply that, we need to drag and apply that to the concern clip. So I have a video here and I have a motion background. So we'll apply this on the video. Let's drag this and put it here. And nothing really happens the moment you put that. But then when you'll see in the properties panel at the bottom, now we have this option of corner rounding and we have few controls here. Let's now include the radius. See how the corner you're now getting a rounded. Let's go right up with extreme. So they're the kind of effect you can IQ by corner rounding. Now, you also have this box here, gardeners. Now you can select or deselect the corner to be rounded. So let's say we click here now this corner will not get rounded. If I click this corner also not good, Hold it. And so you have, you can create various kinds of hips. As you want to know if you select this, nothing is selected. So let's just do this back. So this is how you can use this visual effect. Now you can also apply direct value that if you have idea water, but I'll recommend that you play around with the radius and work the corners. And I have done. Now here we have a toggle switch. Using this, we can enable and disable the effect, not either available on most of the properties panel, and in some they're not available. It's not really that great feature. I don't know why it should be disabling the effect here. So anyway, it's there. So let's see how it works. You click on it. There. The effect has been disabled and we can again enable the effect. Now you must have realized that we are not getting a perfect circle. We go there, we are getting a sort of a ship but not a perfect circle. So how can we do that? One option is that you crop this image in a square format. For that, Let's go here. Click on this crop tool. And now let's crop this. Bring it about her. And here I think that should be good enough. And now if we apply this radius, we can get a sort of circles. I'm doing. You can work this out and we're going to get a perfect circle also. Once you have rounded corners, you want to, you can move this around and place it anywhere you want room for. The good point about this particular visual effect. And this certainly makes the video look much better than what it was earlier. So let's just clear this. So this kind of an effect you can use for any kind of media, whether it be a video or any kind of photo or image. You're going to apply this to apply this special effect. Now this would also be very handy for a talking head. If you have a talking head and you want to put it in a shape, you want to round it up. The way I've done this would be really handy in doing that type friends. So in this video, I explained to you how to use corner rounding visual effect. Make use of it for your project very well, it is suitable to do so. Take at Happy learning. 43. Using track matee: So friends in this video we are going to learn about a track match. If you use it well, you can create eye-catching animations. What Track Matte does is that it helps you to create a mask. And therefore, the layer below where you applied the Track Matte get matched by the shape which is on top. Let me just explain this by a demonstration because that will be easy to understand. I have placed three objects on three tracks. Now on track one, I have a movie clip. Then on track two again, I have a movie clip. And on track three, I have a shape. Now this is what is going to be masking the layers below. So to use the track match, we need to go down to this eye icon here and right-click. And now you get to see the track matte modes. We have none, alpha, alpha and word luminosity, luminosity Invert. Now we will have a look at all this and how do they affect the layer below. Let's say that we now on this track, apply the Alpha Track Matte mode and see what has happened. It has mass the layer below, so only within the shape which is masking, you can see the layer which is below. And then you are also being able to see Track 1. I'm sure you are getting the concept. Let's play the video and see how that's a nice effect. So the video on track 2 is now playing in the shape and the background is track one. Go back to Track Matte and let's apply alpha Invert. Now what has happened since we've done that, what is getting masked is track 1. And the video right below that is on track to have become the background. Let's clear this. Now. I find this quite interesting. And I think over a period one can use this to create a lovely animations for your intros or outros, or for even expanding certain things in your videos. Okay, let's go back and let's see other hopkins. Then we have this university. If you click on this, the track below have got mass. So video is going to play within the triangle, but the colorization of the triangle has got some luminous effect, some kind of a growing there. So it's not totally transparent. Plate. This is the effect which we get every now, a right-click and click on luminosity invert. So you can see what happened, the effect. This may not be a very effective way of doing it, so you have to see how best you can. So friends in this video, I explained to you about Track Matte hand. Using these, you can create nice animations and special effects within your videos. See for yourself how best can utilize this option which had been made available to you in Camtasia 2020. That's it for this video, take care and happy learning. 44. Sharing: So friends in this video, we will learn how to share our project and videos. Once you've created and completed your work in Camtasia, you have many options to share your output. We do. So let's see that posterior we need to go down here to the Share tab here and click on it. Once you do that, you will get options like you can share it using the local file. You can share it to the screen cast. You can set it to TechSmith, read your review. You can share it to Vimeo, YouTube, and Google Drive. Now, the concept of sharing all these lighter, seamless, just check on this Google Drive thing. Once you click on any one of these, you will get a panel like this and they'll be options. You have got to be signed in to share to Google Drive. You can change your title here and it'll get share going to the texts maps folder in Google Drive. And having done that, we just need to click on Finish. And it is going to get produced and gets saved in Google Drive. And the same procedure would be applicable to almost all the options here. You can also share it to local file where you have more control actually, and I advised that was headed to local file. And from there you can share it to all these places. So click on local file. And now you've got a panel where you have many options, like the first one, it gives you the option of again, sharing to all these web servers like Screencast, Vimeo, and Google Drive, and even YouTube. But it also gives you the option of creating your videos. You can create stand alone videos, or you can create videos width, smart players, and the sizes are mentioned, the quality of the video as mentioned, depending on your requirement, you can use anyone's decided, either it an SD or it can be again SD, but at a smaller side. And St video, so entirely up to you which one you want to create. And then once you are happy with it, you can go ahead. You can also choose to create custom production settings in that it's a go-to. Next. You have various options. You can choose from any one of them, like a recommended it MP4, the kind of what we have done with smart player. Not remember a smart paired, a good idea to export or this thing but unnecessarily lambda with other files. So if you are going to be sharing just a video that MP4 stand alone file you the answer. If you have got inbuilt interactive things like on your video or quiz, then you will have to share it using the smart period. There is no other way out. Then you can also share it to Windows Media Video. You can share it on the AVI file. You can share it as a GIF animation, or you can also share it. And M for audio only File. Let's go to next. Now in case you're only going to be sharing it with smart player options, then you have many options like the controllers do want these aspects. You'll decide and uncheck and check the option. Then you have the options of size, the embed size, and the video size. So you again have to decide as to which side you want. You can also chain the video settings at given here. My recommendation always that until and unless you are very short, live it to the option, which is default and it will never go wrong. Color mode will depend on which area of the world you are in. It can be NDRC on HD TV, leave it at default. Go down to Audio settings. Now here, unquote audio and it said bitrate. Now. And are higher The betrayed larger will be the file size. So keep that in mind. For normal play. 1906 KPBS is good enough in case you are sharing it on CD. If it's going to be on, uploaded to the web, I'll decrement to renew the side of the video. Go for 48, gave EPS or maybe maximum 64 kVp us. That should help you. And the other options like table of contents, etc. Not required really. And since we are not inbuilt these in our video, these oxygens are not coming up. And the way you can work on these options, and then the SQL title, you can have a look at the preview. Click on this. It says trivial current settings. Find the video gonna get rendered, and then you can see how your video will come up. So it's opened up and are smart player, Let's click on it. Let's talk it. We've got an idea as to how it's going to come up. And I think it's going to come up quite well. We're going to close this smart player and we click on Next. Then you again have when you options. I think, I mean, you can choose any one of these options and that's entirely up to you. I will move ahead. And now you have output five limb. And where will this be? Co2. And then you're going to click Finish and these weren't will get produced and it gets here. We will not go through that procedure and we are going to cancel it, right, friends. So in this video, I explained to you the options which are available to you to share your video. I explained to you what would be good for you. I explained with the various settings, the various options which are available for the sharing a video. Choose the option would you prefer for your project and for the output which you require? And happy learning. 45. Summary: Hi friends. We have come to the end of this course and you will agree with me that we have covered a lot of ground. We have learned to use Camtasia in its entirety.
