To download and install Camtasia, all you need is to come to your browser open anywhere, come to the search path and you can just search for Google. And you can come over here and search for Camtasia just like it's powered by Text Smith. So you can see it at Textsmith.com for slash Camtasia. You can just hit on the first option and it's going to take you to the Camtasia home pitch. Now this is Tasha's home pitch. You're free to go through to just check around what Camtasia is all about, what they do, and what are some of the benefits of using Camtasia. There are different in products over here. Once you're here, you can see download now and it's going to detect automatically which operating system you're working with and it will give you that version of the download. For my own case, I'm using Mark operating system, so it's going to give me the mark version and I can just go ahead and download it and continue to install. Also is just step by step, you can just follow through and just install the process. Let's check out the pricing over here. It's very interesting and it's cheap to register. You can see for individual subscription, it cost this. And for perpetual license equalities. And if you want to use the Audiate, which is the audio enhancer software, a part of the Camtasia, it goes for this. Okay, so you can just go ahead and get the license for this. So this is basically how to do how to download and install the software for your own use into this course. So I hope you enjoy this video. In the next class, we're going to look at how to open the software and create a project. Okay, and then possibly the general overview of the platform. So until next time, thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. 3. Opening and Creating a Project: Okay, so once you install Camtasia, you can just come all the way to the launch part over here. And you'll be able to see it over here, Camtasia 2023. So you can just click to kick start it. Now when you open Camtasia, you'll be welcome to this very platform where you'll see all the recent projects that you've worked on. You'll be able to see them over here. Now, up here, you have the option to kick start a new project. This is at the home tab. You can start a new project, you can work from templates. You can start a project from existing template. Or you can open an existing project that you have saved somewhere. Or you can just go ahead and start recording. Because like I said, Camtasia is a very fantastic software for screen and camera recording. And if you want, you can have the option to use the new feature, the audit, okay? If you have the license you can use the audit or the snagit, these are very good options to try. So then you can have the land section where you can access all the tutorials if you have any issues. And the Quickstart guide if you have any challenge. Also, you can just go through all of this and then we have the support in case if you are looking for some help or you want to check out the keyboard shortcuts you can check out from here. But through the tutorial. I'm also going to cover how to use short shortcut keys in Camtasia. So you can always check out what's new in Camtasia to see the latest invention in the software. From this tab, you can just click and you'll be able to see created newly and what they brought in, the enhancement, the improvement they brought as regards their features. Okay, but for now we stay at the home tab and we can start a new project. We can click to start a project, and you'll be welcome to this very, very platform. This is a very brand new camtasia page. Okay, so over here what you see is a bunch of things which we're going to cover for you to start editing or recording or making videos. You have to create a project. To create a project, you can come to file over here and just come to save us. Now you define the location where you want to save this. So for example, you can call this video editing one, for example. And then we can just go ahead and select any location within our system and we can just save it there, assuming I want to save my project here. Now I've created a project. So this is a brand new platform of Camtasia and we've learned how to open and create a project. So now we've saved it and created our own project. This brings us to the end of this class on how to open Camtasia and create a project. In the next class, we're going to look at the general overview of the Camtasia platform. What are some of the features that you'll see in Camtasia and why, and how to use all of them? Until next time, thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing the next class. 4. General Overview of the Platform: All right, so welcome back. In the last class, we talked about how to create a project, open the camtasia and create a project. And in this class, we're going to talk about the general overview of the platform. Now when you open Camtasia, this is what you'll be welcomed with. To the left, top left, you have the Record button. This is where you can record your screen, your camera or screen and camera together. You can record all that using this record button. And then the next is you have the favorite. This is where you have all the features that you favorited or you've liked, you scad them, you'll be able to see them over here. And then this is the media bein. This is where you bring in all your media. From the screen recording or the screen and camera recording to videos, to audios, to images. You can dump all of them over here. I'll show you how to import media and dump them over here and then and manage them here in the Media Bein. Then we have the library. Camtasia is equipped with a bunch of libraries in the Camtasia 2023. You can check it from here and you'll be able to see all of the features. There are different different types of features from audios to different kind of counters. If you are interested in using counters, you can see them. Coso animations of different types. You can see different kind of coso animations. You can see it's equipped so clicks of different coloration. You can use them accordingly. And you have dynamic fields, emphases, hand drawn and icon games and so on. Indicators, titles, I use titles a lot, so you can see different different types, big titles and even lower thoughts, and so on. Streamer titles, you can see different different types and you have kids and so on. Camtasia 2023 is well equipped with a lot of different kind of features in the library. Then you have annotations where you can deal with texts and shapes of different types, arrows and different shapes. Different kind of blow and highlight effects over here. If you want to blow any section of a video, you can use it from here and you have different kind of movie lines or sketch motions and so on, and then different kind of control effects. Then we have visual effects is where you have a lot of features like removing a background, bloring sections and increasing clip speed and using masks and so on. I will show you in detail how to use all of these features. Then we have transitions. As you hover over, you'll be able to see different kind of transitions that you can add in between clips and between the same clip and different clips, or between clips and images and so on. You'll be able to add different kind of transitions. Animations have different types for emphasis. You'll be able to see them over here. Behaviors which you can add to text, and shapes, and even images, so that they can at least appear and stay busy. On the screen, I'll show you how to add all of those in detail. Then these are cursor effects. You can change the look of your cursor to have these kind of highlights, or to change the color or have some click effects. Left clicking and right clicking effect. You can customize all your cursors to have some of these effects when you left click or when you right click accordingly. And then we have audio effects. There are different kind of audio effects like noise reductions, the pitch and fade in and fade out. We're going to cover all of this in detail through this course. And then we have voice narration. If you want to make your voice over or record your voice over, I'll show you how to use this camtasia to record your voice over by just selecting the type of microphone that you're using and starting to record. And then we have gesture effect, which we are going to look out in brief. So these are some of the key features you will look out for. And then here over here, this is the main preview canvas. Okay, there are some literal features which we are going to cover here like the hand tool, the cropping tool, and then the animate mode, okay? And made mode effect. We have this fit, different zoom effect. And we can detach the canvas and reattach it again. You can see right now is detached. The canvas is independent and you can always reattach it back to the same catacha. Okay, over here you have the properties panel, whatever. If you can't see it, you can click on the properties and you'll be able to see it. So this is the timeline. Down here you have the timeline, timeline and all of its features. There are different, different kind of features that are here within the timeline which we are going to explain. So from the media being, if you drag and drop a media into the timeline, then a lot of properties are going to come up here which are going to explain what they mean and how you can use them. Okay. So we have the playhead which we can use to navigate across as we move on through Digitorial. You understand how to use all of them and to enhance your experience. And then once you done editing and so on, you can come over here and you can export your project using different kind of formats and into different kind of platforms. I'll show you in detail how to do this. So I think this does it on this tutorial and understanding the general overview of the Camtasia platform. In the next class, we are going to look at how to import and manage media within Camtasia. Until next time, thanks for watching and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By. 5. Importing and Managing Media: In the last class, we talked about the general overview of the Camtasia platform. And in this class we're going to look at how to import and manage media within the media Being okay in Camtasia to import media, there are two methods or three methods. The first one is you can be at the media over here and you can have different options to import. You can have recording, which I will show you how to record and import your recordings into the Camtasia. And then you can have videos, audios, and images also within Camtasia. To import, you can come to import directly from here. Once you click, you can navigate within your system to wherever you have your media saved. For example, in my own case, I have it saved in this, I've classified the media into this do images and video. Let's say I'm importing this video and I can select over here and I can just select this media and go ahead and import all of them. And you can see them. Have they been imported all into this? These are videos if I want to import the other ones. Alternatively, I can come down to this plus sign and I can come to import. You can as well import from Google Drive if you have it connected to this account. So you can import from Google Drive, but I'm importing from the system as well. This time around, I'm going to import my images. So I can come to images and I can click over and select all of them. Say imports. And it's going to import my images. You can see they've been classified according to the type. This is media type videos, these are images. And if I want to import the audios as well, I can follow the same process or you can go to the same file. Okay, This is the file, these are my videos. Assuming this is the audio, I can select all of them. I can drag and drop. So this is the second method. You can drag and drop and you will have it, everything imported. You can see the my audio. This is the images and these are my videos. Alternatively, again, if you want to import the media, you can import directly into the timeline. So you can just go ahead, come over and just go to maybe images. I can just select drag and drop it into the timeline. It's going to make a copy of this image in the timeline and it's going to make a copy also in the media Bein, it's going to store the same copy in the media Bein, but this is just like a shorter way of importing. Now another way to learn to manage your media within the media bein is you can come down here. This is the arrangement. You can have them in this terminal view where you can be able to see a preview of what you have. And even as you navigate, you hover over any video, you'll be able to see the preview of what that video is all about. If you want to change the view, you can change it to either list or this much grid view, or this much grid view. Or if you want it to be this big, you can have it much bigger so you can have a better preview. But in some cases, you may want it to be in the least view so you can be able to see access to all of them accordingly. You can go based on different classification. You can classify based on date, date created, and date added, these dimensions and durations. You can classify them accordingly and you can go on to reclassify them in ascending or descending order as you wish. These are various ways to classify, but sometimes I like to keep it at the, the item type and I change the view to this terminal view so I can be able to see and have a preview of what I'm doing. So usually to import a media into the timeline, all you need is just to select the media, drag it and drop it into the timeline over here. And you'll be able to see, we've just drag and drop this media into your time. You can drag as many as you want, these are images, and you can drag the audios as well into the timeline. Okay? So you can have them in the same truck at different tracks. You can just drag. The key thing to pay attention to here, once you select any audio you'll be able to, you can use the playhead to navigate across, to move from across the clip. Okay? So you can see, be able to see, and you'll be able to hear in cases if it's an audio. But then if you select any media, you can pay attention to what happens here. You have the media property. The properties of that media will be shown here. So these are different properties. For example, to this clip selected. We can see we can scale it up. Okay? If you want to scale it up and you can change the opacity as well, if you want, you can increase or decrease the opacity accordingly from here. And you can play around with the rotation. Okay. The very easy way to rotate, you can just drag, click, And then you can see you can move manually from here or here. You can rotate on any angle x, y, z. And you can change the position as well. You move up, You can see now you're moving and then downwards in the right direction. You can move also in the right direction, accordingly, you can move in the xz direction as well. And then these are sizes you can play around with the sizing as well in each axis, the width and the height, you can play around with it. And then you can skew the video on any angle of your choice in each case, If you want, you can reset the changes you've made. You can reset it and it's going to go back to the default, the skewing scaling. You can reset it back to the default, the opacity as well, you can reset. Or if you want to do general reset of what you've touched, you can come over here and with one click, everything is going to go back to where it was when you started. So this is the properties. If you can't have access to it, you can always see it by coming to the property. Stab, just click on the property and you'll see the property of that particular media that you've selected. You select the audio, it's going to show you only the audio properties which includes the gain. And you can make it to mixed model, auto model. You can play around with all of these. And if you want to edit your audio in Audiit, you can click and you can go to Audi and carry out some of those editing. So basically this is how to import a media and manage it in Camtasia from the media being and even import it into the timeline and play around with some of the features. In the next class, we are going to learn how to record your screen or your camera or both of them, so you can have a talking head tutorial audio about. You can be able to equally import that into the media and play around with it as well. Until next time, thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. 6. Recording with Camtasia: Hello and welcome back. In the last class, we talked about how to import media of different types into the Camtasia media bin. And then how to manage it in a very simple way. In this class, we are going to look at how to record your media as well. How to record your screen, either screen or camera, or screen and camera, so that you can have a talking head video for tutorials for your students or for your professionals, or for your colleagues. Now to record your screen and camera using Camtasia, all you need is to go to the top left. Over here you'll see this record button. Once you click on it, it's going to pop up and you'll have this view. This is the Camtasia Recorder. Okay, so to, to the left, over here you have the screen capture. So this is where you capture your screen. Okay, so you can look over here, you can see the dimension you set it to capture. Okay? You can vary the dimension accordingly. And you can see from the green line, you can see that these are the dimensions. These are these locations, the places that are found I wanted to capture. You can do a vertical video, four by 59 by 16 for maybe Youtube shots, or they're about Tik Talk. Or you can do horizontal videos accordingly. You can vary the sizing accordingly. You can select any one of them as women select this and you'll be able to have the opportunity to change the sizing manually. You can do that by coming to the edge of the green line. Okay, this edge you can drag and you'll be able to see that you are now dragging and extending the coverage of the area that you wanted to cover. You can see it right now, we're going to cover this. And this is custom. Okay, so this is set to custom measurement. If you want to have any of these measurements you can, but then this is custom. If you set it to custom, then you can select the region. You can click on this and you can select the region and you'll be able to see the region you have selected. Okay. Alternatively, you can do the manual selection by just clicking, and we have this. You will be able to drag and select the area that you want to record, as you mean. In my own case, I want to record my entire screen. So I can select and drag up to this point, so I can see now I have captured virtually everything I need on my system once I release. Now this gives me the dimension, okay, 3582 by 2240. You can lock this if you want it to be saved as a preset that you want to record your screen anytime you can have it as a preset. And once you say okay to this, it means it has captured this very one as your location. Now this is the screen, you've defined the area we want to ta. You can vary the frame rate over here. You can set it to 25 to 30 for my own case as 30. You can change it if you want. Then the next thing is you can own your camera. You can record using any of your camera in my own case. Record. Hello, Welcome to my house. And you can record using any of your camera. You can click down here to see the type of camera that you have connected with the device in case I have the C 9022 logi capture camera. So I'm going to select it. So once you select the C922, it's going to record 92. Next you can set up the microphone. What type of microphone you want to use? You can have the list of the microphones that you have connected with your system as well from here. So you can select any one of them and record with it in cases when you want to record your system screen, system audio. Also you can enable it from here so you can start recording your system audio. Once you select this, it's going to record your system as well. So these are the, the recording options that you can set. If you don't want to record your camera, you can always off it and if you want to record screen on, you can always leave it to screen on. Or if you want to record camera on, you can as well off the screen and make it camera only. And once you come over here to the right, you can click to start recording. So in my case, let's click to start recording. Okay? So you have this counts down timer, and right now it is recording my screen. All right, so let's say we can move around across the device and you can check out anything. This is my chart, GPT. If you want to open any window, any tab, you can go ahead and open a tab. Once you're done, you can come to the top of your screen over here, you can see this red button. Once you click on it, it's going to give you the option to either stop recording or you can post the recording, or you can start all over again. Or you can add a marker or hide the dektop icon as well if you want. So at this point, let's try to stop the recording. So once I click on Stop Recording, it's going to stop the recording and it's going to open Camtasia and bring in that media that we've just recorded and to be on Camtasia. So let's take a look at it. You can see now it has imported the media and it's also imported into the time line as well. All right, so after you finish the recording, you'll find it over here. This is classified accordingly. This is Camtasha'scredit recording. It will be part of your media being as well. It's going to be imported into the time line as well, so you can see it over here. This is the camera capture and this is the screen capture that we've just made during the tutorial. So when you select any of them as well, again you'll be able to see the properties over here. Like this one is a combination of video and audio, so you'll be able to see the video section of the properties and the audio section of the properties as well, so you can play around with it accordingly. Now the first thing you need to understand is that the video section is Talking Head, so you can see it over here. You can drag it to any location within the canvas. Okay, so you can see right now, I'll bring it to the top left, it has a snap feature with the yellow lines. It has snap to the edge. You can bring it to the down over here or to the top edge over here. So this is one way to move it. Alternatively, you can come to the properties over here and you can do the same movement. If you move it, you can just take note of the position over here. And you can see it's going to change accordingly without even manually changing it. So you can see, we can play around with it now the sizing as well, you can come to the edge over here and it just drag. And you can see you can increase the sizing however you want it, however big and however small you want it. And you can play around with the rotation as well. Either do it manually here, or you can come over here and you can click Rotate accordingly. You can as well, at any point come back and click on the Reset button, and it's going to reset your video directly. This is one way and you can separate the video and audio, but then this is combined and this is the screen recording, square recording as well. You can select it and while it is being selected, you have the properties of the square recording. And you can come over here and reduce the sizing. Also, however you want it, you can scale it down or scale it up. And you can always go back and click on the Reset button to take it back to the no. Right now you can see the sizing over here. Like I've explained in the earlier stage, you can make it to fit to the screen or you can make it to maybe 100% If you want it to be 100% it's going to zoom out to 100% so you can have your talking head video by the side. But then you can continue to reduce it if you want it to be maybe 75, so you'll be able to see the other features, you can be able to scale it down accordingly. Okay, so this brings us to the end of this class on how to record and import your recorded footage in Camtasia. In the next class, we are going to look at some very basic editings. How to do very basic editings within the Camtasia software. Okay, so until next time. Thanks for watching and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. 7. Basic Editing: Last class, we talked about how to record your camera and screen using Camtasia. And this is our recording and we've automatically imported it into the timeline. In this class, we're going to look into the basic editings using Camtasia. Before we go deep into basic editings, you have to understand the timeline and some of the key features you see at the timeline over here, let me try to explain. Down here, you have trucks, track one and track two, where we say track one houses the screen recording and then the track two houses the camera as well as the audio. You can see it by these audio waves. You can see the audio sign, these ups and downs, they simply represent the sound in the recording over here, you have the truck. You can add a track by coming over here and just hitting on this plus sign. And you're going to have now we have track four. If you are interested, you can name the tracks, for example, you can just right click here and say rename a track. You can rename it and you call it screen capture. All right, this one now is now your screen capture. And then if you like, you can rename this one to make it webcom. All right, so you can keep adding from here. If you want to add more, you can add more. And if you want to see very clearly, you want to see more spacing, you can come to the top here, You can just come over here and just drag so you can see more space to add more truck if you're interested. Now within the truck, you'll be able to see that we can lock a truck with this key sign, You can lock a truck. So it means whatever changes you've made to this particular truck is now saved. You cannot change anything, You cannot remove any feature from this particular truck that you've locked. And you can unlock it. And then you can add other editings as well. So this one is the magnetic tool. Whenever you make a cut, it quickly delete the content and then remove the gap in between. Let me give you an example of what this means as you mean here. If I'm from here and I create a cut, mind you, to create a cut, you can use the letter C as a short cut cut on this. And then we can create another cut. Maybe here, ordinarily, if I delete this, it's going to delete let the section that I'm interested. But if I have this magnetic tool enabled on both of the tracks, if I delete these two clips, it's going to automatically close the gap. Because it close the gap because I have them enabled, ordinarily, it's not supposed to do that. That's the beauty of enabling the magnetic tool. Now the next icon is the icon. This one enables you to either visualize or to enable or disable a particular truck. So if I disabled, which means that truck is disabled. If I enabled, you can see it's been enabled. Okay, So that's the beauty of using this too. And then at the top here, you have the option to increase the sizing of the truck. Okay, if you want to make it bigger, you can come over here to this white icon and you can drag and you can see make it bigger or smaller depending so you can make it average. Okay? And then if you want, you can come over here to this small drop down. You click over here, you can add quizzes and you can add marker to it. These are two things located over there. So if you're interested in adding marker, you can come anywhere and click. And then you can add a marker here. Maybe you want to add something over here. Maybe you want to add a coloration. You can give the description of that particular marker you're adding. Over here, you can see add color. You can see it from here. Whenever you are editing, you know you have to add color or some features from here. So you can add as many markers as you want from here. You can add more. Maybe you can see remove noise on this, for example. These are just an example. So you can add as many markers as you want. And then over here, all you see here is just the playhead. Okay, this is the playhead. As you move, you can see the preview of what is on the playhead here and the canvas. Okay, the playhead enables you to play around and you can move across the clip and you can make selections either in the front or at the back of it. You can make selections. You can select a section and you can do anything with it, either to delete it or to do some other basic things. For example, if you select this section, you can make a right click. And you can see you can delete this range that you've selected. You can do ripple delete. You can insert time if you want to insert an empty time within it. And you can deselect if you want. Or you can add time selection to the library di, selected timing. You can add it to the library if you're interested, or silence the audio or restore the audio, it's very possible. So at any time when you finish a particular action, when you double click on that particular playhead, it comes back to normal, normal selection. So let's say we remove these markers, because at this moment I don't need them. So at any point, once you hit on any place, the marker can come over there, the playhead can come over there. You can see you can just move it at any point. Okay. Next is you have some basic editings at the top here. You can undo, you can redo, you can cut, you can copy with all these, you can pest, and you can duplicate things from all of this, and then you can slice. Now to slice or split a clip, you can just select that particular clip, you can come over here, you can see the splitting tool over here. Or you can use the letter C to split like we did before. Once you press on letter C, that clip that you've selected is going to be cut. Okay? So you can see now we have two clips here, clip one and clip two. Now if you want to cut on the same point across two clips, all you need is just to make sure you select the two clips, and then you hit on letter C and it's going to cut across. Now you can see we have four different selected tools. Okay, so let's say we remove this marker option. So we are now back. Okay, so this is the cutting. If you want to cut multiple, you can just select press the playhead anywhere there's press letter, and you can see you've made the cut. Now assuming I want to create a cut, But I don't want this silent place. This place. Maybe while you are recording, you made some mistakes. You want to remove this silent place, and you can see it over here. To remove the silent place, you have the option to either make it very visible. So by coming over here, you can extend the truck. You can see with this. Now you can extend the truck to see visually clearly. So you can make a precise cut. So you can cut from here. Let's say I create Don letter, and I make a court here. And then you can come over here precisely here. And then press on letter C. And it's going to make another court here. It's now left for me. I can select this and delete, which leaves me with a gap. This is first type of deleting. You can delete and you leave a gap. Then alternatively, you can now delete this empty space. Okay? You can write, click here. Alternatively, after the deleting, you can come over here, select all this, okay? You can select everything, and then you can try to move it and then join it to the other one. That is the first method. Alternatively, let me undo this then, instead of me to do it manually, I can select this. I know I don't like this entire section, so I select the entire section, I just right click and say ripple delete. And it does the same thing, it deletes it. And then it connects the rest of the clip to this particular one. And it does it in a different way because if you look, it has stitched the clips together. Okay, it's no most two clips, it is one clip. You can see it's been stitched. So that's the beauty of doing ripple delete. So you can select multiple sections. For example, this whole place is empty. Can just select right click and say Ripple Delete. Or I can say delete range. Going to delete that particular range. The audio de, media in that particular is going to be deleted. Okay, so you can say Ripple delete and it deletes and cut and join the sections as well. This is the beauty of Ripple Delete. You can do that across throughout your editing. Just find the place that you don't want or you make a filler. You can remove your fillers, by this way, you can just select the place and just delete directly. You can do right clicking and delete range, or you can do ripple delete range or thereabout. So you can do that as many as you can. That's one way. Another way to do the editing is you can come over here, you can reduce the visualization. So you can be able to visualize everything. Or you can come over here and just hit on this. And everything is now fit to the screen, so the entire media is going to be visible on the screen. So there's what we call trimming. You can trim from the edges, so you can come to the edge over here. Once your coso turns into this vertical sign, you can click and drag. And you can trim any section of your choice. You can trim up to this point. And you can come to this one as well. You can drag. And you can see you've trimmed this section, so you can see right now you've trimmed. And if you change your mind across the editing you want to change, maybe you need that portion that you've trimmed, you can as well come back to the edge and just still drag. And you can see it's now coming back. You can drag that section as well and it's back up to the point that you wanted to stop. Okay, so that's one of it. Another way is right now the audio and the video are connected together on this particular track. So if you want, you can separate the audio and video by red clicking and you can see separate video and audio. And you can see the audio is separate and the video is separate as well. So this is one of the beauty of Kmtasha, Very easy to use and very easy to do a lot of editing. Now another thing you need to pay attention to is in editing, you can always use this and you can always move from one frame rate to another. So this now moves you one frame rate at a time, okay? One frame rate. And if you come to this, this now takes you from one media to the next media to the next media. So this is their function. This one can move you from one media to another. And if you have multiple media, it does the same thing. For example, I drag and drop this one here, and they do the same thing. You can separate the audio and video together, but then you can still have them. You can see a separate video and audio. And you can see, we have the audio and the video track at the bottom, if you like, you can move also from media to media, from this one to that particular one. It takes you to the end of next media. All right, basically in terms of editing, you can move any section of the media, okay, so if you want, you can simply drag select, move it to any location. You can select and move it here. And you can select this portion and move it here if you're interested. You can select this portion and move it here. And you can move any section to anywhere depending on what you're working on and what you're editing. So you can see you move, you can move these sections, you can move the clips across very easily. Still in the editing process, you can select a particular clip. For example, we selected this one and we have the option to access its properties. Like this one is two media containing audio and video. When we select it, you can see we have the video component over here. Like I've explained earlier, you can play around with the video component, which means you can scale it up or down. You can move it up manually. You can do that, but you can equally do that also from the property panel over here. And then you can play around with the opacity. You can increase or decrease the opacity. You can rotate. You can select and make rotations. And you can play around with the position over here. You can move it to any position like we've explained. And you can change the sizing across the width and height. And you can skew from any angle at each giving point. If you don't want anything, you can just undo from here. Or you can do general undo all the settings from here. If you want to do with all the audio, you can come to the audio section as well and do that. And you can increase or decrease the gain accordingly. Okay? So it's very easy to do some very basic editings depending on what you're trying to produce and what you're creating. This is the power of camtasia, okay? You do so many things with it and you can detach the canvas over here. I've explained earlier how to detach the canvas. You can crop the video, for example, this, my webcam recording is too large, it's too wide. I can trim it. Once you select a given clip that you want trim, you can come over here to the top. You can click on this trim option and you can just select and move around. So you can trim the sections that you don't want. For example, I can trim all of these sections. And this section also, I can trim it. So this is okay. So I can put it somewhere here, so it becomes okay. You can play PT work, any do. So you can see how powerful this can be. So you can go back to the selection and if you want to move the video, you can move all the video. If you want to move everything, you can use the pantole and move everything together. Okay, so I think basically this is how to do some very basic editings to your clip or to multiple clips to your recordings and so on. Whatever media you have, you can do this editings using the same technique. So I hope you enjoy this video. In the next class, we are going to look at how to add annotations to our video recordings. How to bring in different kind of annotations. You can see different kind of texts, how to add text and shapes into our video clips and do some very basic editings. Until next time, thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. Why? 8. The Library Features: Hello and welcome back. In the last class we talked about how to do basic editing within Camtasia. And in this class we're going to look at how to use the library features within Camtasia. There are lots of features, thousands of features that you can use to enhance your video editing experience to make your video look professional and nice. In this video, we're going to look at some of them and how to use them to access the library. You can just come over here to the library. You can see it over here. You can check Camtasia 2023 library. You can download more assets from the Camtasia website. If you have access to the Internet, you can just go ahead and download. And you can as well create your own library at any given point so you can move features that you would like into that library and you can name it as you wish for now. You can see the number of features both on audio visualizers, channel kits. When you click on the drop down, you see the number of things. This is clap and stump and the driving electronics and so on. There are different things. Once you click on each folder, you'll be able to see this is audio bars, this is channel kit related things by box subscribed binow, vertical and so on. These are preset templates that you can easily upbringing. You can see these are costal animations of different types, okay? Depending on your choice and the condition you find yourself. I like dynamic backgrounds because sometimes you can use it to create lots of intros and outros as you saw through your video editing. So there are different types and they are dynamic, which means they move, okay? They are in motion, so you can select any. And to create your own intros, I'll show you how to use some of them to create an intro. Then you have dynamic files. Dynamic fields, okay. They are different dynamic fields. You can see them. So many. Then over here you have hand drawn. Okay, for illustration purpose, if you want to highlight or showcase something, you can use some of these features as well. And then you have titles. I like titles because they are very, very professional, the way they design them, they are very excellent. You can see different titles. These are big type and they are lower thoughts. In cases when you want to use lower thoughts within your video, maybe to define your name as the instructor of a particular course or for just transition between points. You can use some of these titles. There are so many things insight, but let's start with creates a simple intro with the library features for example. Let's come down to the timeline and select all of our clips. Let's see control to select everything. And let's move it a little bit to one side so we'll create Intro from this side. What we are going to use is we're going to use dynamic background. So we can just go ahead and search for dynamic background, which we can see from here, dynamic background. So let's check around. You can find any background of your choice. You can just check. So let's go with something like this, okay? You can just drag it and drop. All need is just a drag and drop. So you can come to the edge over here and define it to as many, as far as the lengthy one length. You just define it, you can bring it in or you can leave it at another different track. But let's say we keep it inside for now. If you play a preview, you're going to notice that it is a dynamic background. Okay? It's dynamic in nature. You can see it's in motion constantly. So we can put some text to define our intro. For example, you can go back to the beginning and then we can go to the titles down here, right? You can come down to titles. This is titles of different types. So let's go with the big type three, for example, let's say big type three. And we can just drag and drop it here. All right, so we have our title and if you try to play a preview, you will be able to see what we're talking about. This is the reach recording technology and you can see everything is very glaring. Let's say we equate the titles to end where the background also ends, just like you've seen here. What we need to do is to customize the titles. Right now we've selected the title and we can come over here. This title one, title two, title three. We can just edit the content. For example, you can say welcome, okay. You can say to my channel two. And then here we can make it my channel, for example. This is just an example. If you are not setting or comfortable with what you have, you can easily change it. By coming to this sign. You can reduce the sizing, okay, by just clicking dragging here. You can reduce the sizing opacity and styling. You have a bunch of different other features like the vertical spacing. If you want to increase or decrease the vertical spacing, you can increase from here as well. And the horizontal spacing as well, you can increase or decrease accordingly. Let's say we want to edit a little bit because it's a bit bigger. Let's reduce the sizing to welcome to on my channel. I think this is okay. And then this one. Welcome. So let's make it a bit smaller. Resizing is big, let's say welcome to my channel. All right, so you can see you can play around with the coloration as well. You can change the color of any type. Just select and we change the color directly. And it goes for all the other sub themes. Okay, there are all other texts you can change directly. Let's say if adjusted it to this much. So let's try to play a preview to see how our intro is going to be. So you can see welcome to my channel. And then this is the out the exiting point. So you can see, I think it kind of looks nice. Okay, welcome to my channel. And this is a good intro, can start whatever you have and then the video can go on and on and on. Some of the features, you can use it to create this. And then you can use the same library features to add maybe lower thoughts to indicate that you are the instructor of this course for example. So let's try to see how we can use lower thoughts in this. There are different in lower thats, this is still within titles. You can still check, you can come down this one, okay? Like this. So you can just drag it and drop it. Let's drop it somewhere here. Once you drop it again, as usual, you selected to come to the properties over here, you'll be able to see, this is the preview. We can play the preview and see what happens. Let's say we can, let's try to see how we can silence the audio so you can listen to me clearly. Silence the audio. Let's play a preview. This is, this is it. It comes in and then it's stays on the canvas. And then at the, later on it will move out. Okay, you can see it quickly moves out. Let's try to customize this and make it look professional. And we'll start with the text, putting your name here, for example, I'm Dr. Hid. Then you can put your subtitle, let's say I'm the instructor. Then down here you have to put the logo that you want to. Okay, you can close on this to delete this logo. You can touch a logo and you can import your own logo, so you can use it directly. Let's select, I think I have some sample logo here that we can use. Let's say we use this screenshot, okay? This one, once we select it, you can see now our loft is complete. We can go back to the beginning. You can see this is it, okay. Then once it goes to the end, just take a look at how it's going to fly out. Okay, you can see, I think this is fantastic. It's a very good way to create out and just to pit out with the themes, the different kind of library features. Okay, so there are different different features that you can use depending on your choice and depending on what you're trying to create and how professional you want to make your work appear. You can easily use some of these features. There are a number of them. So you just try to explore and then see how and what do you do you need and then how to use it. It's very, very simple. There are lots of them. So just go ahead and explore. We even have the UIkit. We have the browser, we have notification, we have phone doc, and so on. So these are very, very important presets that you can easily apply to your own video editing to come up professional and nice. So this brings us to the end of using library to edit our contents or to enhance the professionalism of our videos. I hope you enjoy this video. In the next class, we're going to look at annotations. How to use annotations. This one, the texting, the shapes and the blurring nature, how to add blow effects in our text or within our videos that we're explaining. Maybe there are some passwords or sensitive things that we don't want the public to know. How do we blow certain areas within our video. We're going to London in the next video. Until next time. Thanks for watching and I look forward to seeing you in the next class by. 9. Adding Annotations: Hello and welcome back. In the last class, we talked about how to use the Camtasia library to use some of its features to enhance your video. And in this class we're going to look at how to use the annotations. Okay, annotations are also equally some features that are incorporated into Camtasia to help you bring out the video. So it looks much more professional and nice to start with, you can just come to animation annotations over here. So you can have annotations in different forms from text boxes of different types. You can see them from text callouts. Okay, We can have different callouts with arrow or just ordinary numbers in cases if you want to do any demonstration. For example here we may want to have a text over here maybe highlighting that this is the lower that, okay, let's just put an arrow and a text. Just drag this and drop it here. Then once you d drop any feature, we'll be able to see it. Let's drag and drop this here. Then we'll be, once you select it, you'll be able to see a preview of it and you'll be able to see the property residual over here. This is the colt properties. You can change the theme. Usually the default theme is okay. But then you can change the arrow type. Is it a normal arrow or arrow number two? Or if you want to go with, let's say we go with a normal arrow. And I think it's cool, so the color, you want it to be solid or gradient. Let me make a gradient. And we can choose any color of our choice. Let's do something like more Dak, let's click out. Then you can vary the opacity over here, as well as the thickness of the line. You can vary the outline. How do you want the outline? Is it white in color or you want it to be line, something like this? The outline, you can play around with thickness. It pops up a little bit, you can change the color also from here. Then you play around with the opacity directly. Now over here is where you deal with the text that is inside the arrow. So we can double click and you can start. This is the lower th, this is lower that, okay. So this is the writing you can select and you can go ahead on the text, the menu over here. You can vary the font style. Okay, the font class, It's the style and the sizing over here, you can vary the sizing, can increase or decrease the sizing as you so wish. And then you can, of course, increase or decrease the vertical nature. And then you can play around with the alignment and so on. And then you can select and play around with the video editing features of this particular callout. Okay, so you're free to manually select and you can come over to the edges and drag so you can reduce the sizing. Okay. Or you can rotate it to any angle. For example, you can come to this point and you can rotate, showcasing, highlighting that this is the lower that that we're talking about. You can just showcase it. Okay. Very easy. So you can see we are just signifying that this is it. You can come down here and look at it. You can play out with the position. Also manually, you can skew to any point. You can scale it up or down as you wish. Okay, I think this is okay. If you want, let's try to see a preview. The moment, it might look a little bit boring. You see it just comes in. It just comes in. I think it looks a bit boring. If you want to see it clearly and with some animation, you have to put in some behaviors into it. You come to behaviors down here and you can select anyone. I think I like this jump in, so you can drag and pest and drop the effect on this. So you can play around with the effect also as well. How does it bounce? You can change the direction, the bouncing effect. Later I will show you how to with behaviors, but for now, just to make this, our arrow call out to be a bit professional and enticing. So take a look at how it's going to look. You can see it is jumping and it now moves out. That's professional and nice. So that's the first type, you can still come back to annotation, you can add any type can make it right up. If you don't want it to be, arrow can make it right up or thereabout equally. You can add different types of arrows, of different types as well. You can just select an arrow, drag, and drop it here. Then you indicate what the arrow is going to indicate. For example, you want this arrow to indicate something. Maybe you just highlight something, or this is me. So you can select, let's say, let's move it here to showcase that I'm the presenter and the instructor, you can see it is just showcasing myself. And if you want to see it dramatically as well, you have to add the behaviors to it. Let's adjust the sizing And then you can come to behavior right now. Let's say we add this behavior, and then maybe it flies in. Let's try flying. Okay, let's take a look at a preview of what we've just created in terms of the arrow. You can see the behavior in it. And you can see it goes down. And the lets take a look at the arrow, you can see it comes in and then it goes out, that's perfect. So these are some anticans. Sometimes you can add shapes of different types. If you want to add a shape, you can just select a ship and just drag and drop it. Just like so you can drag and drop it. Or you can drag and drop it inside the timeline as well. So you can select and you as well have the access to the color or the share properties over here. You can change the shape if you want. If you want, you can make it an octagon and you can change the coloration for ease of access and for ease of visibility. You can select and you can play around with the sizing as well. You can increase your sizing and make it bigger, maybe position it in somewhere. Or you can come over here and do the same. You can increase the size or decrease and play around with these features as we've explained. Also then you can add anything. Maybe add text or thereabouts. And if you want to make it lively also you can add some behaviors to it. Now, the next one is the blow and highlight. For example, maybe through our video we may want to blossom section of this video so people don't have to see those features. So you have different types. If you want to highlight, highlighting is just to emphasize some things. So as I want to emphasize on this line, okay, one line or two lines, you can just select a number of lines and you can go ahead and just highlight. You can see it's going to highlight this line. And you can go ahead and come to the colored features and you can increase the opacity or make it darker or make it lighter. Okay. So just for ease of access. And then you can change the coloration as well from here. If you don't want that, you can make it lighter or you can make it yellowish in color there about. But I think I like this color and you can just take a look at it from here. It just comes in while you explain. It comes in and then it quickly goes out. That's the beauty and power of the highlighting. You can use it of different color, you can use different color, You can use this one. Or you can use this yellow color as well just to highlight. Then in some cases you may want to blow other places and show highlight a given place. For example, you may want to highlight just this section of the website. You just want to highlight just this section. You can just drag and drop it and you can as well take a look. You highlight, You have virtually shared out all the other places and highlighted on this place. So you can play out the intensity of the highlighting also or of the shading around. You can increase the shading around so you can see. You can be able to see only the section that you've highlighted that's powerful, maybe it's through your illustrations. Do you want to zoom out and emphasize on this section that this is the most important? And then move back to your illustrations. So that's the beauty and power of this. Then you have sketch motion of different types. You can select any of different types and just use it, can drag and drop any if you are interested you can just drag and drop. And you can play out the thickness and the sizing as well. So the coloration, I think, let's make it red so that it pops out a little bit. And then we can have it come over here, the thickness, we can make it a bit thicker. And then you can select and make it smaller. Okay? You can reduce the sizing. And you can as well reduce the length if you're interested. All right, this brings in and you can highlight something directly from here. It's very easy and for ease of highlighting of something, you can point out to something and you can illustrate something. And then over here, the last one here is the key stroke. Call out in cases where you want to demonstrate a keystroke within your keyboard, you want to show maybe Z to copy command. To do something, you can just easily use this feature to just illustrate. You can just take a look. You can just drag any, we have different types. Let's say we drag this just for illustration purpose. We want people to know that. For you to go to the next step, you have to press command Z, and so you can come over here, so this is the issue. You can have background with background or without background. This is without background and you can enable the background as well. And then once you select this, you can just input the command, maybe common F can see, so this becomes common F and you can position it anywhere anywhere during your illustration, you can see that you press command F to go to the next step or to undo something that you continue. So it's just for illustration purpose. So generally, annotations are very useful for illustration and pointing out things and, or emphasizing features while you are delivering your presentation or your tutorials. So I hope you enjoy this video. This brings us to the end of annotations. How to use annotations and to use it for various functions. I think we forgot to one. Okay, there's this blow effect. You can blow any section of the video as well. So you can select and blow any section. So for example, you can make this place on the invisible, so you just drag and drop. So through tutorial, this place is going to be blot. Maybe it contains some account number or E mail address that you don't want people to see. You can vary the length of it and you can make it as far as you want. And you can increase the intensity. Also decrease it depending on how you want the blurring nature to appear. But I think the default is quite good because it's still not possible for someone to read. So this is the power of rotations, they're very useful. Try to play around with them and see how you can apply them in your day to day activities with Kemptasia. So this brings us to the end of this class. In the next class we're going to look at some visual effects in Kemptashia. Okay? So until next time, thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By. 10. Adding Visual Effects: All right, welcome back. In the last class we talked about annotations. How to use annotations to illustrate some points, some concepts to use some of the shapes, arrows, and blurry nature to blow some sections of our video. In this class, we're going to look at visual effect, how to add visual effects in Camtasia. Now, visual effects consists of different kind of effects. There are so many of them, you can remove the backgrad of a given video with just a simple click. Or you can use the blend mode, or you can add the border. Or you can blow a section or a region within a video, or you can do color adjustment. You can convert the entire video into a grey color. We can do color tint and so on. And so many of them you can add drop shadow and you can sometimes do masking and so on. So let's try to have some few of them. Let's see how we can use some of them. So for example, let's try to remove this background in this webcam video that we've just recorded. So to remove this background, all you need is just to select the clip that you're working with. And then you can come over here, just drag this feature and drop in it. And you can see with just a simple click, it has removed the background. And it does a good job because you can see clearly that the background is removed. Okay, You can click over here. For any feature that you've added, you click over here and you can select and you'll still be able to see the property of that particular feature that you've added. You're free to remove it from here or you can off it from here, so the effect is normal. Or you can own it accordingly. It's very easy. This is removal of the background. You can see we've just remove the background. You can do many more things. For example, you can change the coloration to grey color directly. With just a simple Plt, you can just come over here and play around with the contrast, the brightness and the range of the coloration you can see as you move. It varies directly the red highlight and so on. And then you can adjust the intensity of each of the coloration. You can on and off it as well. Let's off it at this moment because I don't need it. It's just for demonstration purpose. You can colorize as well. And you can add in coso path. If you want your coso to have a path defined, you can define it directly. So let me show you one very important feature that is very, very peculiar and useful to people doing demonstrative or tutorials which is the masking feature. So let's go back here and let's kind of bring back our background. Let's bring the background back. Let's off the background removal. And let's add the mask feature. So we drag, drag, and drop. You can see it has given us that circle. I'm sure you've seen this in many tutorial style. The presenters have this kind of circle and you can move it across and then move it around to somewhere. So this is the feature that gives you that circle, okay? So you're free to play around with the intensity and the type of shape that you want. For example, this is oval in nature. You can make a rectangle if you want, and you can see it just quickly turns out to rectangle and you can make it oval. Because I kind of like the oval nature and you can invite it if you want. I think the oval nature is good. And then you can rotate, you can increase the opacity over here and do so many things from here. Another feature that I like to put to give it some touch is the drop shadow. I like to give it a drop shadow, so you drag and drop a drop shadow. So you can see it gives us a little bit of a professional touch. And then you can come over here, touch on the drop shadow, and you come to the properties, you can increase the offset. Okay, So you can see the offset angle and the blurring nature. You can increase it as well, so it becomes very, very glaring. And you can change the coloration of the offset as well. You can see it pops out a little bit. Okay, this is just for popping out and just for you to have an understand that this is really, really important. Another feature that I also equally like to add is sometimes you can add the path. For example, you're illustrating something at this point and you want the circle to move to the top here, you can introduce this path movement. You can see as you hover over any feature, you're going to see what it does. This one is the path, or motion path definition. You can just select and drag and drop it. Another feature. So you can click and you can define the intensity as well. Finish editing and so on. So this is the finishing point. You can go ahead and define the length. Usually it goes to the end when you extend this from here you can extend and you'll be able to see how long this is going to take, okay, from the starting to the ending. You can start at the beginning by just coming over here, Take it to the beginning and less, go to the beginning and see be through our illustrations how this is going to move through the path elongating it. Make it slower and it's going to cover this much length. If I make it shorter, something like this. If I make it shorter, then it's going to take a very small time to move to the top here. And you're free to increase how smooth it's going to be, how rough it's going to be when it is moving up. Let's try review of this. Let's try to silence. Let's silence the audio so that you don't get the stopped silence the audio. And let's try to play it. All right? So let's play it. So you can see the movement is quite a bit slow in nature. But it then moves up, and then it stays there. But to make it faster, then you reduce this length. And let's see how this is going to happen. So it's going to move from here quite fast. This is pretty fast and if you want to cover the whole of this clip session, you can just extend it and you'll be able to play. And it's going to move gradually, gradually, gradually into the system until it gets to the top across the clip that you've defined. So you can see the movement is quite slow and it covers the entire clip that you've selected. So that's the power and the beauty of using the motion path to define a given motion or giving feature within your camtasia software. So that's powerful and I kind of like it in case if you need to remove any feature, you can just select and deleted. Don't worry about this line, you're not going to see it at the end of it all. You can add drop shadow. If add a drop shadow, you can remove a color. If you want to remove a color, you can remove it very easily. You can spot light something. Or you can use Sap Vignet or Thereabout Windows Highlight. You can do that. You can blow some sections of the video as well. This is very easily, you can do all of this within Camtasia. Then another feature that is very important and I want to show you is the clip speed. Come down here, it's very important. Clip speed, you can speed up a given clip with this feature. So all you need is just to select it, drag it, and drop it here. And you're going to see, so you have to click on this small arrow and then you can shorten it by just dragging. And everything now becomes shorter. And the video is now going to play pretty fast, the router. So you can see it's playing pretty fast because we've shortened it. You can do that on audio or video as well. So all you need is just to select and drop it, and then you can adjust the speed very easily. This does it for the application of visual effects to our videos. You can just go ahead and explore any of them. Anything you want to explore, like this media Matt you can exploit or keystroke in cases. If you want to have a keystroke attached to your circle, you can attach that and you can go ahead and study it and play around with it and see how it affects your video. But this is a bit about how to use the visual effects in Kemtasha, help you enjoy this video. In the next class, we're going to look at transitions. Okay? How do we apply different transitions from one clip to another or within a specific clip for our videos to appear and remain very, very professional until next time. Thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class, Bye. 11. Adding Transitions: Hello and welcome back. In the last class, we talked about how to add visual effects to your video creation within Camtasia. And in this class, we're going to look at how to add transitions within Camtasia. Now, transitions are very important because they enable you to look professional when transiting from one clip to another, maybe from one completely different media to another media. So it gives you the smooth flow, okay? So it doesn't have to be a jump cut or a direct cut. So something just appears just like that. It gives you a simple smooth flow into it. So to access transitions, all you need is just to come to transitions over here. And you can see different kind of transitions. There are different transitions over here, you can see them and they are of different types. You can see tread blows, division fates, and so on. There are so many of them, so you can select according to the selections, and you'll be able to see those particular ones that you are trying to select. And if you have a specific one that you are targeting, you can go to all and then you can search for it like fun is one of my favorites. Always like it. So you can search directly and you'll be able to see it. And one thing you should pay attention to as you hover over any transition, you'll be able to see a preview of what that transition does to your video. Okay, so you can see as we hover over, you'll be able to see the effect, this is arrow solid. And you can see this is bar wipe, This is, this is like band door. So you can see how it just simply opens. So you can just check around and see most of them. Okay, and try to see which one you're interested in and which one do you want to try on your clip. So let's say in this introduction. Okay, down here we'll have this introduction. And the intro video just comes up, Welcome to my channel. And then suddenly it just jumps into this video. So I want to bring in something. I want to make it a smooth or professional transition to this video. So let's add something, let's check through and just find something interesting that we can just easily add. Okay, How about we try this card flip. You can see it, okay? This is card flip and this is card flip swap. But then I like this card flip. And if you like it, you can always start it. So all you need is just to drag and drop it in the timeline. Okay? You can see in between the clips. Another thing is if you select that particular transition, you'll be able to see the properties over here. So you can on and off the transition feature over here. Or you can come to the type and you can select again to replace the existing one from the tre D. These are the ones you have in tread and it is a blow type and this division type, this is fat type. And the radial types and solid types and so on. So you can just go ahead if you want to change it. You can change directly and you can use beamed content. You can enable to use beam content or not, or you can reverse the overall feature or not. You can change the color. I'll show you what you need to change and then the depth, depth of the entire transition, and then the angles you can change as well. But I like to keep everything a default. So let's try to see a preview of what we'll just creates. See the transition. I kind like it this way, only we have to put at the other transition down here also, which is the background recording. Okay, the screen recording. So it takes in the two. So let's go back and have another flew. Yeah, I think this kind of looks much better and professional, so you can see the white color. If you want to change it, you can easily come over here and change it to any color of your choice. Maybe according to your brand, you like something like this. And then you can just go ahead and give it in the same way. This one you can just select and you can come over Select and come over and you can make it the same way if you are interested. Okay, let's try to play a preview. And see. So you can see the color has changed. And it just give us that quick slide to what we have. That's the beauty and power of transition. You can apply it to anywhere. Maybe, let's say this one. Cross this. As you move from this image from my talking head into no talking head, we can put a transition on that. This one moves out so you become aware of something that is going out. Let's say we're putting something like this. You can just drag and drop it. And you're free to extend the length if you want it to the process to be longer or shorter. So you can extend or reduce the length accordingly. So it becomes faster, the transition overall becomes faster. Let's try it. See that kind of switch between the eclipse is what we are just after. You can see quite fast, but I think, I don't like this. Let's have something much more better and professional. So let's remove this and then you can come down. Let's try something like this. This snap, okay? And then try to reduce the length. Let's try it one more time. All right, so our target is just the talking head. You can see it just quickly swaps down and I think it makes a lot of sense. Okay, So now moving to just only the screen recording. So that's how to basically do it. And then this one comes into this talking head but in the rounded nature, okay? So we can make another transition also to show that a light fun. So let's try fun, and let's see how it's going to be. So you select fun and then you drag and drop it, ham. Let's just reduce the length a little bit, and let's try to play and see a preview. So this comes in pretty fast, and I think this is a bit too fast. Let's kind of reduce it, the speed, okay. So let's see, it comes in pretty fast and then it jumps in. So that's transition for you. You can transit across any kind of media. You can see the professionalism in the transition. I think this is fantastic. You can do that across clips as well. So let's say we are transiting from this tutorial into this video of the tourists. So let's say we add another transition. So let's go back to the same transition, let's cancel the search. Then there's just something interesting. All right, so let's see this fsequest, I think I like it, so let's test it and let's try a preview of what does this fantastic, you can see I think it's quite nice, the flow generally. Then back to this one, It just gives you an impression or an understanding of what you're going to do. If you don't like this, you can as well put something like this. I think I like this one also. So let's have a preview of editor. This is, this is quite smooth and the flow itself pretty nice. You can see just quickly transitions to this video. So basically this is how to edit or add transitions into your video clips or you can do that across all the clips that you have or even within res. Later I will show you how to add transitions within reals and then to make your video look much more professional and nice. But basically this is how to use transitions within camtasia. I hope you enjoy this video. In the next class, we're going to look at how to add animations, basic animations. While you are editing your video, you may have to emphasize on some places and maybe zoom out on some places. And zoom in on some places for emphasis and for you to be able to showcase something pretty fast. So I'll show you how to use animations, and in the next class we'll cover animations. So until next time, thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class by. 12. Adding Animations: All right, so in the last class we talked about how to add transitions within our video clip to make it appear and look much more professional. And in this class, we're going to look at the basics of animation, how to add animations. Maybe during your tutorial videos, you may want to highlight some things or you may want to zoom out to some places. Camtasia does it best because it allows for the animations. So it comes in very easy. And it's very easy when compared to other complex platforms like a Premier Pro. You find everything in one place in Camtasia and it's very, very easy. So to access your animation, you can come to the Animation tab over here and there are a series of animations, different types of animations. As you hover over any animation, you're going to be able to see the effect that is going to have on your video. This is the custom one, which means by custom, if you drag and drop it into any of your video, you now have to be the one to define the action that is going to do within that particular clip that you've added it. And this restore, okay, whatever action you're taking, you can restore this. Back to the default, okay, the default position. And there is no opacity. Full opacity, if you want to zoom out to zero opacity, just like at the end of a clip or at the end of a video, you can assign this. So it just quickly dies out. If you want full capacity, it comes in from zero to full capacity to equally show, this is important at the beginning and this one. At the end of a video, you can tilt left and tilt right. For example, you are demonstrating anything. Let's give an example of how and what we actually mean by some of the. So you can see exactly what I'm talking about, for example, in this tutorial, Delivering this tutorial, let's say at this moment, at this point, I want to tilt this u page, the screen according to the left. So I can just easily drag the tilt to left and drop it here. And drop it on the screen recording. And you can see it as tilted to the left. Okay, so you can go back and let's play it. And you can see the transition is quickly tilted to the left. And at this moment, if you want to tilt to the right also, you can just select and pass in here. Maybe from this point I want you to tilt to the right. So usually at the tip of the arrow, that's what shows the end of the action. So let's see, from the beginning is where the action actually starts. The real animation starts at the beginning. So from here it tells, right? Okay, so something like that and if you wanted to go a bit slower, you can increase the length of the arrow. You can select and increase the length. So it becomes slower. I mean the transformation. So we can see the transition now becomes a bit slower and it goes to the other edge the same way here. If you want to increase the speed, you can reduce the length of the arrow. Okay? So this is tilt right and left. And if you don't want, you can shift, you can select and shift it to any point. And from this point maybe from this til turn right, I may want it to go back to normal. Okay to normal were to restore to the existing point. So you can just select and restore and just drag and drop it here. And once you release it's going to return it back to normal, let's see, okay, back to the previous normal to restore it to where it was before the action. Okay, so this is going to take it to left, okay, well, if you don't have this, it's going to take it to restore it back to the normal point where it started. So you can see, let's remove this, let's say this one now tells it to the left and it continues on the left. But then you want to restore it, so you can drag and drop this. And you can see it returns it back to the normal point. So you can just go back here from the left. It now comes back to normal. So that's the part of the restoration point, but at any given point, I always like to use my own instinct. For example, I always like to use the custom one. Because in custom you define exactly how you want the arrow to behave. So let's say we drag this custom and pest it here. As you can see, the normal thing is it doesn't do anything. Okay? So it doesn't do anything as you move across the arrow. But then at the beginning I wanted to do nothing but at the end. Okay. So you can come to the end and you can see the top tip of the arrow turns red. Now I wanted to carry out something, and that's something I wanted to zoom to this point. I want to highlight just this point to show emphasis on this point. So I can just go on to this point and just drag and then use my hand to move it if you want to move it with the hand or you can use the position tools to reposition it, but I think I find it faster if you are using the mouse button to just move it. So I want you to zoom into this point. Okay? And it's going to end at the end of it all. So let's go back to the beginning. You can see now it just moves, zoom into that point that I wanted to zoom in. And at this point, maybe after illustrating it for like three to 5 seconds, I want you to zoom out to go back to restore it to where it was. So I can select the restore point and just past it here. And you see it now goes back to where I wanted it to. So let's sub a preview of this and let's see what it does actually from the beginning it zooms into this point and then I explain. And then it zooms out to where it started. That's very, very nice and interesting. And you can vary the speed, again, like I said, by increasing or decreasing the length of the arrow. So if you decrease the length a bit, you're going to notice that the transformation to the restoring point is now a bit faster. Can see it. This is the beauty. You can do it, you can apply it to any point. Again, I like to use the custom one at this point. Now maybe I want to show, I want to emphasize on this computer also at this point all you need is just drag the custom one again and just past it. So select drag and paste it from here. All right, so you define at the end what you wanted to do. Let's zoom out and let's go straight to the computer. And I wanted to show this computer directly. And then after that it should last for this much long, and then it should go back to where it was, where it started. So that's restoring point. Okay. So I want to play it now and let's see whether it's going to zoom to this computer. Zoom to the computer, then zoom back to where it was before. So it's very handy when you are carrying out tutorials or trying to explain one or two points within your tutorials or your video making. So let's say at this point I want to add this, no opacity, so it comes in from full opacity, from the black screen to the full opacity. So I can just drag and put it usually at the beginning. All right. At the beginning of it all. Okay, once you pass this at the beginning, you can see that it comes in from the black screen down to this one. And then you can put it also at the end, maybe signifying the end of this tutorial. For example, let's go back here. Let's zoom this two feet. And then we can come over here. Let's say this is the end of it all. Let's remove this. Let's no opacity, so we just select, put it here. All right, so everything now, including this Talking Head. So we drag and drop one also at the Talking Head point. You drag and drop it here, right? So everything dies out. So you can see while we're watching, it just simply dies out. So that's the power. So there are so many of them. We've explained at the beginning how the motion path works, just like the way we've inserted with this talking head, how it works and the transformation from this point to quickly move to the top. And this is smart focus. If you want to do smart focus, you can just hover over any of them and you can see what it's going to do to your work. It's very interesting. All right, so one last one that I want to show you is the scale to fit, okay? Scale up and scale down at any given point. Let's say at this, I want to scale up, but then I want to show this so you can use the scalp option, you can just drag and drop it, and you can see it quickly scales up. Okay? Usually the end point is what you should pay attention to. Now you are the one to highlight where you want to show. Now I want to show these points you just drug and show. Now to scale down, you say I wanted to continue for some second, then scale down. It's now scale down to fit in everything within the video, okay? So you can see it fits in everything. And maybe this is not what I want, I just wanted to scale down. But then I want to increase the scaling to this much, okay? So you can see it to this much. Now let's have a preview again to what we have just done. So you can see we've scaled up to this point and then we've scaled down to where it was literally before. And then it continues like that. So that's the power of, so it involves practice. You have to be the one now to learn how to use it. You have to practice on your own to see even the smart focus, you have to be the one to showcase exactly where you want it to work. This is smart focus. Let's see what it does. So you can see, let's see what it does. It simply zooms to this point. If this is not the point you wanted to zoom to, you can just come over here, select it, and then make sure you define to where you want it to zoom. For example, I wanted to zoom and show the last three icons down here. All right. You can vary the scale as you saw Wish from here. All right, so let's say I wanted to show these icons this one. Okay, now how it happens. So smart zoom is now going to quickly go and zoom to that point. Actually, there are different ways of doing the same thing. So you just have to learn by practicing and pick the one that works best for you and then you can use it at any given point. I think this brings us to the end of how to use animations within Chemtasha. The next class we're going to look at how to apply behaviors and cusco effect to our video editing. Okay, maybe square recording, how do we apply some crucial effects. So our Uso will have different kind of effects and behavior to enhance our tutorials. Until next time, thanks for watching and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By. 13. Adding Behaviours: Okay, so in the last class we talked about how to add animations in our videos within Camtasia. And in this class we're going to look at how to add behaviors and some sal effects. Okay? How to change sal effects to look much better and professional. Now, behaviors can be added to texts and videos, and shapes if you have any. Okay? The main purpose is just to keep the screen busy so that the viewer don't have to click out. You can enjoy the happening or what is happening on the screen. Just to keep it busy, let's start with the text and to add text. Generally in Kemtesha, you have to come to animation annotations over here. And there are different type of text. Let's say we're going with a simple one. We select and drug and drop it here, okay? So you can see this is a bad text, Ordinary text. We can change the color from here for Eso visibility and you can see it. You can select drug and put it here. Assuming during this total I want to highlight that you have to put in control Z to undo over here. So I'm going to double click on this and just see control Z, something like this. Through the tutorial, you have to put in control Z. And you can see right now it's kind of boring how it comes in and stays there and move out without any movement, without any behavior. Now, to add the behavior, you just come down to behavior over here. And you can select from any other one, from any behavior. And as usual, as you hover over any behavior, you're going to see how it's going to be. Okay. You can see this is flying, this is drifting, this is jumping. I kind of like jumping sometimes and pop up, so you can just see a preview of what they do. So let's try jumping on this text and we'll just drag and drop it. Now again, once you drop an effect on a text, you can be able to see the effect from here case. You can come over here and you can change some of these settings like the feature, What happens when it comes in, this telling of coming in? So usually the default is bounce in and then it's a text, the direction is going to be top. And then what does it do? Is it bounce and it bounce with this much percentage. Okay? You can offset how much offset? How is the jumping? You can set all this. And during this stay on the screen, what does it do? It just keeps jumping. Okay. And with this much time and with this much details and it loops, then if you want it to look, you can look forever until the end of that particular text. And then out, how does it go out? It just drops out, and if you want, you can make it fed out or fly out, or hinge, or reveal, or thereabout. You can change most of these features from this tab at the properties panel. Now you can try this because of just dumped in jumping. So let's see what happens at the jumping. You can see it comes in and it jumps. And it jumps, and it jumps, and then it moves down from the bottom. So that's the power of it. Just to have something that can keep the screen busy. If you want it to be drifting, you can just drag and drop drifting. And it's going to automatically override, so you can delete jumping as an effect. Let's see, now this is drifting, so you can see it quickly comes in controls and then it stays on the screen and then goes out through this method. Now if you don't want it to go out through this flying of the screen, you can still select the effect. And then you can come down to the properties and you'll be able to see what effect does it have in is drifting in. And with this much speed, you can increase the speed if you want and you can increase the offset and other features during. What does it do? It just drift and it stays there. Okay? It keeps drifting and you can see it fits in, or it jumps. You can say let it jump while in there, okay? And then when it goes out, you say it drifting flies out and the direction is at the top. I don't want it to go out through the top. I want it to go out from the bottom. And let's see, so you can see everything is now set up. Let's have a preview of what you've just set up. It drifts in directly, just like that. And it stays jumping. It jumps on the screen and then it moves out from the bottom. Just like that's the effect on text. Let's put the same effect on maybe a ship or the Ab. Let's have a ship. Let's say this ship, this rectangle we just drag and drop it. You're free to customize it, drag it to the edge over here. You're free to customize it, put in anything. For example, if you have any coloration, you can change, you can change the type. Also, if you don't want to have a rectangle, you can make it a star and change the color and change the opacity as well as the outline and thickness as well. You can do all that from here. All right, so now you put in some effect. So let's go back to behavior. So let's say we're having one of the effects. So let's go over here and see which one. Let's have this jumping. I think the jumping does well on ships as well. Let's go on and let's see what happens. So you can see it jumps in. And it keeps jumping. It keeps jumping on the screen and then it jumps down. Okay. So this is the beauty of adding behaviors just to keep the screen busy. So you can do that with different things, different types of things on text and on ships. Now that's about behavior. You can add any, you can go ahead and try it and see for yourself. The next end is we'll learn how to add Uso effect now. So effect is very, very useful to highlight what you're working on. For example, Uso is appearing to be too direct and too plain. It may not attract viewers. Some cases, if you are doing a tutorial video, you may want to have your Uso to behave in a different way. So for example, I want Co, this is the uso effect, This is left click effect, this is right click effect. How do you want uso to behave when you left click? And how do you want you to behave when you right click? So now let's go back to the uso effect unless I want you to have this highlighting option. Okay, because a lot of tutorials you do have this highlighting option. Now once you select, you can see you have the highlighting and you have the cuso properties over here. Now the first thing you need to pay attention to is you can change the cuso type. This are the different types we have. You can make it to be hands just like this, or you can make it to be this type, which is the one you have right now. Then you can vary the scaling. You can increase or decrease the scaling of the cuso how big do you want it? You want it to be this much big or you want it to be small. Okay, so let's keep it small, but then let's change the other features. Like if you don't want the color of the circle to be yellow, you can change it to any color. For example, you can make it blue and you can increase the sizing of the circle. Okay? So you can increase it and you can play around with the opacity. You can make it highly, less opaque, so you can be able to visualize what's inside the circle. So this is very easy when you are giving tutorial, so the mouse movement can easily be tracked. Okay? You can be able to see where the mouse is moving to and what is happening in the tutorial. So for ease of access and for easy of understanding, sometimes you may not want to have it to be fully filled like this. You may want it to have this cycle, this magnifier, you can just drag and drop it unless say we disable the other one. The cost of highlighter, we can drag and remove the highlighter. Now you select this, you can see you have the circle. Now on selecting the effect, you can be able to play around with the sizing as well. You can make it bigger and you can make it smaller. I think the default does a good job. And you can change the softness, the zoom in and out, out. The want, the ease in and out. Okay, Very easily. When you demonstrate things on the screen, you'll be able to see the movement of the mouse with this sac. Okay. Very easy. You can go beyond that. If you want to use the highlighter, you can use the highlighter as well. Or if you want to add some shadow to your coso, you can add it as well. Now let's go to another one that is really very, very important and useful. Sometimes you may want to increase the cos smoothing effect, like now when you move to the top, you can see it is not too straight, okay? It just as to the top, just like that. If you want to make it faster, you can use this, can just row and drop this, and let's say we remove the other effect. Okay, let's say we remove this effect and we'll make the cuso a bit faster. Okay? So we can see now that we've added this, when you select the effect, you can see this is easing detect Russo poses and so on. And then the duration is in 1 second. So let's see how fast does this move. You can see it moves pretty fast. You can see it is moving pretty fast to move pretty fast to wherever you want it to move. Okay? It's just an effect that helps you to smoothen the movement of your mouse within a particular screen according. Now let's check out this. The next one is the left click. What do you want your mouse to do when you left click and default? If you can put in any, you can have this red sign or you can have this or you can make a sound if you want to make a sound. Let's try this one, because if you make a sound, you can hear it. Let's say this one. You can drag and drop anywhere. You make a left click to make this sound, this sound, okay? So if you make a left click is going to make this sound. And if you make a right click, it is going to make this sound. So whichever one you want you can select, drag it and drop it on your timeline. So wherever you have a left click is going to show in this red sign. Okay, signifying that it's a left click. Or if you want to have this, you can have something like this as well, or you want to have this target. You can have it whenever you make a left click. And the same way you can have the left click features. If you are here, you can come over here and you can change the coloration of that. And then the size as well of the circle and so on. And then the right click, also the same, you can red click. And it may have something like this, okay? You may have something like this, this ripple effect. Or you may have this cope effect or this sound when you read Click. So it's all boils down to you if you wanted to have something like this when you write click, you can just drag and drop it also. So anywhere within this particular clip, if you make a right click, it's going to show this color with this much ripple or these rings, okay? And then if you make a left click, it's going to do that. And the cuso is enhanced by the cuso mooting effect, okay? And in each case, you can select a particular effect and you can be able to have access to the properties and change it accordingly as you wish over here. Generally, from the clip we'll be able to do all of the changing. You can access all of the features that you've added within it. Okay, so I think this does it on how to add behaviors and coso effects to your video within Camtasia. And in the next class, we are going to look at how to add rules generally and arrange your rules, be it a video or an image within camtasia. Okay, so until next time. Thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By. 14. Adding B-Rolls: Hello and welcome back. In the last class, we talked about how to add behaviors and cursor effects to your video in Chemtashia. In this class, we're going to look at how to add bureaus. Okay? Bureaus are generally a layer of video, an image that one can use for illustration purpose. Okay? As you're explaining a given concept, you can add a video, add an image just to explain the concept in a better way. Okay. So to add a bureau in this case because I want it to be at the other screen recording option is to come after or behind the webcam recorder. All you need is just to, let's say we create another layer of truck at the bottom here, we have to have a truck after the main screen recording, we can write, Click over here and come to inside a truck and we can see inside a truck below this particular track, you can select this. That truck now is going to contain some footage, whether image or a video. Now let's start with a video. We can just d drop this assuming along this explanation as I'm explaining. I want this to come up as the first thing that people should see. And then I want to possibly silence the audio. Let's silence the audio on this also, okay? So we can just say, I want it to showcase the entrance of this little car into this, so less from this point. So we can select and trim from the edge to this point. We can trim also inside as it just gets inside. We can trim up to this point. We can just drug and trim up to this point. And we can position it to make sure that we got it right at the right point or the right position that we are targeting as we want it here. What this means is, as I'm explaining this concept, for example, this GPT, this suddenly comes in and then explain it, and then it goes back to this gray recording and then I continue to explain. This is one way adding a video. So let's try to add an audio and an image also to this. Let's say we have our images, part of the images. If imported, we have this family image. We can just drag and drop it. We can extend the length as far as we want it. You can see right now we can have it this way. Okay, let's say we want to explain at this point. I'm explaining. Then this family picture suddenly comes in, in each case the same way you do with video. Once you selected, you can come to the properties over here and you can scale it up or down if you want, accordingly. Let's say I scale it up to this just to make sure it fills up the entire screen. And then I can adjust the length from here, from the edges can just increase. Maybe I want it to cover up to this point. Get what I'm explaining and then go back to my explanation and continue. But this comes in after the basic explanation. This comes in and then I explain and then it goes back to this. All right, so this is important and you can make it full screen to cover the whole screen. Or sometimes if you are teaching something, you can make it like picture in picture also. But that you can select this, you can select the edges and you can drag and make it maybe a picture at the top here. And then while you explain some things as well. But in this case, I wanted to cover everything, so I want you to cover the entire screen. What this means is, when I'm explaining this, again, this comes directly. But then to have the best part of it, you have to add in some transitions, okay? It transits professionally into the other one and then it comes out directly. Let's try to add a piece of transition to this. Let's say we add this transition, we drag and drop this, make it a bit shorter once we're explaining, what this means is this comes in. Okay? Okay, So maybe I extend the transition a bit so we can. All right, it transits then you can have another transition also to transit out. All right, so let's say we have something like this at the end of it. It transits out. Transits out. We have to silence the ad. This as well, so you get the message. To transiting in and out. You can do the same for the images. Well, just adding a transition, we have this bar wipe, okay, at the end. And we may have the same thing at the exit as well. It transits in and then it translates out into our explanation. So basically bureaus are there to help you explain your concept in a much better way. This actually does it on how to add ureas into your video editing footage, maybe to make it look much more better and professional. I hope you enjoy this video. In the next class, we are going to look at how to add and manage audio, music and sound effects. Audio in general. How to add and play around with it, edit, and do some very basic editing within it. Until next time. Thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By. 15. Adding and Managing Audio: Hello and welcome back. In the last class we talked about how to add and manage your Beatles within Camtasia. Okay? And in this class we are going to talk about how to add and manage audio within Camtasia. Okay, so to add an audio, let's say we start with background music. Okay, let's say we add some very simple background music that we can have to this simple creation that we've just created. So to add background music, usually you can have it at any track of your choice because it's just a music, it doesn't have to overlap with anything. But usually I do have it at the bottom of the whole trucks. Okay, so let's say we can insert a truck from here and below the same one, so we can have a free space at the bottom here. Now to import a truck can come to the media as usual. You can drag and drop any background music that you have. You can download background music from anywhere and then pest it here. And if you don't have, you can use the one from the library. Usually there are some in the library, but they are not so often. These are some more or less like some short short sound effects that you can use. Compa is not so equipped with sounds and audio packages you can look for elsewhere, like in websites like Pixvi or Pexels, you'll be able to find some media, a lot of copyright free audio that you can use as background music, but for this case I have my own imported so we can come to media, you can see it over here. So all I need to do is drag and just drop it at the created truck that we just created. Now once you drag and drop and you select that particular truck, you'll be able to see that you have the option to edit the game of this particular one. This background music comes in with the wave form. You can see it over here highlighting the ups and downs of the sound. And you can increase or decrease the gain from here, more or less the gain is just like the volume. To reduce the volume, it's going to reduce the volume directly. Now you have a number of things to look out for. You can reduce the gain directly from here. As you reduce here, it's going to go down. And you can see that from the picture, the wave form is really going down as you are reducing it from here. You can see it down here. Okay, with the reduction here, it just simply takes down the wave form. You can do that from here, or you can do that manually From the audio track, you can see it has this small green line. When you highlight it, it becomes the yellow. You can select it and you can drag down and it's going to lower the volume or lower the gain of this particular sound. Okay, so you can do that across the whole sound, or you can do that at intervals, or you can cut different points to create the same reduction. Right now when you play, you'll notice that the sound is too loud. You can see the background start music is too loud, so we can reduce it. There's another feature so that a bunch of features when it comes to audio effects. You can come here and have the audio compression emphasizer and noise removal. In cases when you record something that has a lot of noise in it, you can use this feature to remove the noise and you can increase the pitch. You can insert a fade in and fade out. For example, in this background music, we can drag and drop a fade in. Fade in. What it simply does is it make the audio start from zero and then it gains the gain, okay, until it gets to 100% You can see right now when you look at this, you can see the transition, okay, 0-100% And you can reduce that by just dragging on the small ball point. And then you can just reduce or you can extend. And you can see the triangle nature or the gaining nature of it. You can do that from the intro and you can put fed out at the outro. So let's have an example. Let's preview of what this means. It starts from zero and then gain the sound volume up to 100% So let's hear that. So you can see it gains to, maybe you can make it up to the point where I start speaking. You can just bring this up to this point, okay? So it goes down and then comes 100% at that point, equally add a fed out. Okay, So you can come to the end over here. You can either, all right, you can cut or you can fit. And then you can select the edge from here and just drag and trim it up to the end point here. And then you can try to zoom to fit again so you can see clearly. And then now you can add a fit out, okay? So you can see you've added a fed out. And you can vary the intensity as well. From here when you try to play, this is going to die out from 100% to zero. This point stop, you can see the background just dies down from 1000. That's the beauty of adding background music. You can play around with this volume again, From here you can reduce the volume until it gets to the minimum that you can carry. Because the key thing is to hear what I'm saying, not the background. It's a bit louder, so you can reduce further. Okay, from here, this is too quiet, you can increase se. It's red by me as we keep it. I think this is much better. You can still hear it at the background but not disturbing the main Deo. Now, over here we have the more noise removal. Once you drag and drop the noise removal on this particular audio that I have, you can see that I've added the noise removal and I can play around with the intensity from here sensitivity right now when you play without. You can see we can hear some noise in the background. When you enable the noise removal, it's going to do a good job. So you can see we can increase the sensitivity. Let's silence the background music so you can hear the recording. I think this is quite nicely, that it's getting a bit too much. So you can just reduce a little bit, the quality of the sound is improved. You can just play around with this and see how it can help you to improve. And you can add in emphasis as well. So once you add in emphasis, you can as well play around with the intensity from this and you'll see it's going to change. So you can see it has drastically improved the quality of the sound. So you can play around with this depending on the kind of recording that you have, and then you can see how it's going to affect that. Okay, another thing, another important thing that I want to show you is this clip speed. You can increase or decrease the clip speed with this feature right now. Let's say we try to separate the audio from the video so I can show you what I'm trying to say. So let's separate audio and the video. So this is purely the audio section. Okay, so we can just drag and drop this clip speed. Once we drop it, we can come over here and you can see the clip speed here at the bottom. So you can come to the edge over here, you can just drag. This is going to fasten the audio in the recording. It's going to speak pretty fast, maybe Chipmunk type. All right. You can equally extend it to make it speak slower. You can extend it and it speaks very slow. You can see what I mean. That's the beauty of this feature. And then you can add captions. Later on, I'll show you how to add captions when you come to narration and recording voice over. I'll show you how to add caption, but then managing audio and adding audio. This is how to do it. You can add different ground music. You can add different kind of sound effects. Sometimes you can use other websites to import the sound effects that you can use in your camtasia as well. So it all boils down to you. Sometimes you can have it in websites like Pizza B. You can just search for the sound effects and you'll be able to see them and you can apply them at any given point, be it pop sound, be it who, Sound Dabo? But basically, this brings us to the end of how to use audio, how to import and manage audio within Camtasia software. So I hope you enjoy this video. In the next class, we're going to look at how to record voice overs within Camtasia and add captions to it, okay? Record voice over and then add caption to the voice over. Something like subtitles. Okay? Record voice over and add subtitles to it. Okay? So until next time. Thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By. 16. Recording Voiceover: Hello and welcome back. In the last class, we talked about how to import and manage audio within Camtasia. And in this class we're going to learn how to record voice narration, or generally how to record your voice over within Camtasia. To record the voice over, all you need is just to position your playhead where you want that voice over to start after the recording. Now you can come down here to voice narration and you'll be able to see. This is where you set in the voice settings over here, you can choose the type of microphone that you want to use. For the voice over mind, I'm using the road MtUSB mic, so I can select it over here. The intensity, the sensitivity, you can because right now it is speaking. This is giving you a test. Because speaking and it is reading the end, the red sign, which is not good, is clipping. You can reduce the intensity a little bit. So you can see something like this is working now. Once you press on this record button, the red button, it's going to start the timer. Once timer is done, it's going to start recording the voice over. Let's give a start. Now we have the timer. Hello and welcome to my channel. This is a test of the use of Camtasia to record my voice over with it. Okay, so this is just a complete test video. We're showing you how to record your voice voice over with Camtasia. Once you're done, you can press on the top button to stop. Right now you can see the voice over that Joe recorded. Let's do a fit to screen. And you can see this is the voice over the Tojo recorded. Now we can play to hear a preview of what you've just recorded. Welcome to my channel. This is test of the use of Camtasia to record my voice over with complete and I think it's perfect and nice. And you can select it and edit the audio as a whole. You can increase or decrease the gain as you wish. And then you can select the places where you feel like there's a filler or there's some mistakes. You can select and make the cuts. Just like we've explained earlier, how to make the edit. So you can just select, let's see, the use of Camtasia to record my I want to remove this. Okay. Sense. I can just come back here, select this. Okay. And can do a pole. Delete. Okay. Rep Delete French. It just deletes it. And I have my own. It's very easy to record your voice with Camtasia. And if you want to export, you can export all these sections if you want. I'll show you how to do this at the end of it all when we're trying to export our video and the content that we've created. I think this brings us to the end of this class on how to record voice, voice narration with camtasia. In the next class, we're going to learn how to add captions and subtitles within our video that we were creating and within Camtasia. Okay? Until next time, thanks for watching and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By 17. Adding Captions: Hello and welcome back. In the last class, we talked about how to record your voice over within Camtasia. And in this class we're going to look at how to add captions or subtitles within your video recording or video editing in Camtasia to add your subtitle or caption within our video. So let's say we have this audio that we've just recorded, let's it play in the background. And I want to have the caption over here, so let's see an example. All right, so let's say we want to add the caption to this. All right? So you can go ahead and select, Come over to audio effects. Okay, You can come to audio effects. And you can select, this is Captions, and you can drag and drop it into this particular audio. And you can see it automatically opens the captions menu where you add the captions and so on. And then over here. So all you need is just select this and you'll be able to see right now it's enable the caption area where you will need to add the caption. Okay, if you want to play, you want to add the caption. You can start from beginning. So let's say we started from beginning. Hello and welcome to my channel. You can select here. Okay, so I wanted to stay exactly welcome to my channel. So you can adjust it over here so you can see it starts. This is the test of the use of famtasia to call my phone. All right, my channel, This is Let, stop here. So you can start typing your captions over here. Hello and welcome to my channel. You can repeat this if you want. You can put it on the auto repeat mode and it's going to repeat hello and welcome to my channel. This you can pick it. Okay. We can take it to the net. Is all right everyone. Well, one to my channel. There is a full stop here now. We can go ahead and move to the next one. You can click on this and you can see it's going to take us to the next one. It has taken us to the next one. You're free to adjust the duration over here, or you can manually adjust it directly from here. Let's say we'll extend it a little bit to get to this point. All right, so let's say it gets to this place. All right. It gets to this place. Let's again and here share to recall my voice. Babtyles type there, I already type this is, this is a test of camtasia to record my voice less one more time. The use of A to call my voice baby. The use of Camtasia to record my voice over with it. Okay, so this is just an example and you can move to the next one. So okay, show you how to. All right. You can equally manually adjust this as well if you want. Then you can play around with the text features, text editing features from this text. You can play around with the phone styling, okay? You can change the phone style, the phone sizes, the color of the text, as well as the background color. You can change it as well, and the opacity as well. You can change all this from here. All right, once you're done. Additionally, you can come to this gear icon and you can split the current caption, or you can match with the next caption. Or extend the duration. Or shorten the duration accordingly if you don't want to do it manually. Okay, once you click out, this is now going to take in as our caption. So let's click out, and let's try to play. And see now whether we're going to have that caption or not. Okay, let's play from this point. Okay, I think I need to bring this down a little bit so that we can be able to see it clearly. Okay, You can see it down here. So let's play it one more time, my channel. This is test of the use of camtasia to record. I think this is perfect. Okay, You're free to import your voice over if you have the option to pick someone living fiber or the about and then have someone do the captions for you. You can import it also into the same camtasia and attach and reconnect the timing if you're interested in that. But if you have the timing and you have the resource, you can sit down and just follow the timing and just type it on your own. You can do that as well, or you can go to Google Translate or Google Captions and then generate the caption and then copy it and paste it here. It can do the same option as well. You can work the same way. Okay, so ladies and gentlemen, this is just a bit about how to use the Camtasia to record, to generate captions or subtitles for our video. Okay, in the next class, we're going to learn how to use this green screen. Okay? Sometimes you may need to record your video with a green screen if you don't want to have that background with you. If you want to change the background to something else, something more captivating, something much more professional. So I'm going to use a sample video where I have a green screen. And remove the green screen, and then replace it with another background for you. So watch out for the next video until the next class. Thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By. 18. Removing Background: In the last class we talked about how to add captions to our video. And in this class we're going to talk about how to remove a color or a background color with Camtasia. Okay, so usually we can remove any color of our choice. We've demonstrated earlier on how we use one feature to remove the background completely. But if you want to get it perfect, you have to get it on a green screen. Because of the uniformity, you have to do it on a green screen. So I want to import a video that has a green screen. A video that has a green background. And then we can use it to as an example. So we come to import over here media and then we can go to where we saved our media. I want to import this image, this video of a cart with the green screen. Just select and import it. And I can drag it easily and drop it in our timeline. Okay, so this is the cart. And we can select it and come to the scaling over here. We can scale it through, it fits in the entire screen. So we have this beautiful cart with us. So let's try to play it and see the movement. This card now stands up and try to see how it moves somewhere. Okay, so it moves out. Let's say we want to remove this background, so all you need is just to come to the visual effect over here. You can see the background or remove a color from here. Okay, so you can just drag and drop this feature down here. Now when you select the feature that you've just added, you can come to the Properties menu here. So you can see Remove a Color. Now you can come to this place, you select the color that you want to remove. If it is the green, you can select this and just go ahead and point anywhere. Okay, this is a color picker. Once you click on this, it's going to remove directly this. You have to be very careful. Sometimes you have to select different places to get it right. Okay, so like now, we can see the place we select is not too perfect. But then you can still click back. You can do this, you can do this, and you can click again, the color picker and find another place. So you can click and see, You can see it is now doing a good job gradually, but then you have to do a lot of adjustments to get it right now when you click out, you will have these other features like the softness, the tolerance, the softness and the hue and the, the fringe, okay? So these are features you have to use. Sometimes you can use the tolerance a bit to just increase, making sure that you don't touch the subject. You can see it is clearly removing some part of it, but then it's okay at this point. And the softness, you can increase the softness a little bit, so you remove some of the other features as well, and then we don't touch tissue. Most of the times I use the de, fringe so that we can remove most of the areas that are left with the coloration at any given point. If you don't like what you see, you can always undo this. Okay? You can click to undo it, or undo everything from here. So let's say we go back a little bit to the softness. I can undo the softness and I can increase it a little bit so you can give me a little bit, you can remove the color so much. Okay. You can see we have done a good job. And let's try to reduce some more over here. Okay, so you can get it this way. All right, so when you try to play, you can now see that it is now without a background. Okay? So it's without a background, but you can do a good better job by playing around with this human saturation effect as well, okay? But most times I don't touch it. Okay. So you can just go ahead and give it a try and see. Now the next thing is to bring in the background that you want this cars to superimpose on. Okay, let's go back to the menu, still to the media bin and then add a background. The background could be anything. Let's say we import an image. Let's say we import an image of a room or somewhere. All right, so let's go back here to, to this point images. And then we can have this image of this room and select to import it. Usually when you import a media that you want to add behind, you have to take it below the subject. Okay, Below the subject, below the track that the subject is being contained. You can see we have this. So you can easily click to extend to the end point. All right. You can click to extend to the end point if you'd like. You can make the cart smaller, actually. Then you can select over here and increase the scaling of the room so it covers virtually everywhere. You can make the cart smaller also by selecting this, you make the cart smaller. Okay? The cart is now inside this room, so you can just move somewhere here if you just appear as if the cart is inside the room. Let's play it and see. We can see now as if the cat is inside the room directly. You can see, yeah, this is the beauty of removing the background. You can see it easily, moves very easily as if the cat is inside the room. That's the beauty of removing the background, using the color removal. You can do a better job if you play around with it. Just just an example. Okay, this brings us to the end of this class on how to remove a background or a green screen. Tasha, I hope you enjoy this video. In the next class, we are going to look at how to add a quiz within Kmtashakay. If you are playing a video, you can have a quiz pop up. And people can answer questions and have their answers displayed within the video. Okay, so until next time. Thanks for watching, and I look forward to seeing you in the next class. By 19. Adding Quizzes: Hello and welcome back. In the last class, we talked about how to remove a background of a video or replace it with any background of our choice within Kmtasha. And in this class we're going to look at how to add quizzes within a video. Okay, so we can add a quiz that people can click to answer within a particular video. So to add a quiz, all you need is to come to the bottom left of our time line. Okay? So you can see Quiz over here, You might see Maca, but then you can click on the drop down and you see Quiz over here.

In the last class we talked about how to add quizzes into our video within tasha. And in this class we're going to talk about how to use do shortcut keys. Okay? Some keyboard shortcuts that are default and how to customize some to make it our own so that we can use it through our experience within Kmtasha because it's very, very important when you know how to use keyboard shortcuts, it makes you very, very easy and you edit pretty fast because there are lots of things to do, there are a lot of things to edit, okay? So let's start with the more basic ones, okay? You can hit Displace button to start a video, and you can hit Displace button also to pass, okay? So instead of you to come over here to press on the play and then to press it to stop or to pass. You can always use that with the Space Bar on your keyboard and you can always copy something, a truck or a feature. You can do contras to copy, and you can go ahead to somewhere and just do control V to paste. Okay, you can just go there and paste anything accordingly. And you can do contra to undo and control X to cut the feature instead of you to always come over. You have to come over here to copy and paste and cut from these features. You can do that as well directly from using the shortcut keys. Okay, so these are the most basic ones, but then if you want to access the point of shortcuts that we have in bile within Camtasia, you can come to the Camtasia 2023 over here and come to the preferences. You can see a number of them, okay? There are a number of shortcuts, okay, to bring it to the general. But you can come to the shortcuts and you can select, these are different shortcuts from animation and effects to canvas options to option captions. How to enable captions, add captions. How to play out with animations. And these are some features. Add last used transition if you want to add the last use transition is shift. And to add that particular transition to the transitions you are going to work with. And then the other ones jump to the next animation, jump to the previous animation. You can do that with the option key and the letter key. Okay, so you can check around and see which ones do you use most, and then see how you can edit it to make it faster. These canvas options, how to zoom in and out of canvas and so on and captions. And then export options, how to export screencast text meat to Youtube and so on. Library options, how to go back quickly to the library and then the maker and quiz options, how to enable all that program options and projects option. But the ones that I use most frequently is when I'm editing, I do use the ripple delete option. Okay, so you can see the ripple delete over here. Once you select a particular place, for example, I select all these and I want to ripple delete instead of me to right click and ripple delete range that I've selected. I can always use the command plus the backspace and it quickly does the ripple delete for me. You can see it. Just give me the ripple delete that I'm looking for. It makes it perfect and faster. And then if you come back to the preferences, if you come back to the preferences, you can still go. The ones I use most is in the timeline editing, for example. You can have the Split All button, okay? So you can see the split all is done with this. You can customize it, okay? You can select this and say, let's replace this with the letter S. Then even though it's been assigned to stitch selected image, we can replace that. It's been replaced, split all the letter. When I'm on this clip and I press on letters, it's going to automatically split everything. So you can see it split this and this and this, all of them with just a simple click. So that's the beauty of using shortcut keys. It makes your work pretty easy, Let this split up, and then if you want to have something like this stitch selected media, you can replace it with something. For example, I can say let it be replaced with the letter D. And it's just going to replace it directly at any given point. If you want to bring it back to the default setting or the default short card key, you can always press on this sign to, to reset it. Okay, now let's see stitch, selected media using the letter D. So let's go back here. This is selected. Let's select this media and this media. And I want them stitched. Just press a letter D and you can see have them stitched. So that's how fast and perfect it could be. So you can go ahead and customize it to your own, to your test however you want it. Okay. How you want it, you can just go ahead and send, customize it. Copy properties of a particular place and past it somewhere. You can do that and you can customize it also to your liking. Okay. And then you can have the past properties. Usually during the editing, I usually use the letter C to create a card. Okay. Let us to just create a cart anywhere. Okay, let us, you can give me a cart. And you can see I've splitted this. And if you want to split multiple clips, you can just select. If you select all of them and you press a letter C, it's going to split across those clips as well. That's how perfect it could be. Now still on the preferences, you can go ahead and select the timeline navigation. Also you can use it, okay? You can zoom step forward and step backward, okay? You can move step forward and backward with the comma and the Full Stop key. And then zoom in and out to fit and to max. You can always customize the keys to not use them and decrease the track height and increase. You can use them using some of these. So it's all up to you to see which of these features or shortcut keys you can select and customize to make your own. The ones that you know you use pretty fast and frequent. You can just easily customize them. So these are customizable ones. You can go to the default text Smith ones which you don't customize. So if you want to customize you can always come to the custom feature. So this does it on this straal on how to customize or use shortcut keys on Camtasia. So you can go ahead and practice and see which ones you can use and which one you can enable for your own consumption and for your own usage. I hope you enjoy this video.

Exporting Videos: The last class we talked about how to add keyboard shortcuts and generally use shortcuts to enhance our productivity within Camtasia. And in this class, proving to be the last class, we're going to learn how to export our video using different formats directly. Once you're done editing, you check through and you like what you see. You're comfortable with everything that you've edited and you have everything that you are interested in. You played the video and you are satin and comfortable with what you have.

Or you can check the export history if you're interested. But for this tutorial, we're going to export in the local files. Okay, so within my computer, so we can select this. Now the first thing is you have to give the video a name which we have given in the first place, we have named it. And then you can specify exactly the location where you want it to be saved. Right now it's going to save it in these images, but I don't want it, I want it to save in this folder. Can touch that tutorial 1023. You can click here to create another file, okay? So you can call it export, okay? You can click on Create, and our training one is going to that particular folder. Now this is where you state the format, okay? The file format. This is MP four. You can do it in quick time, dot move, or dot gift if you're interested, but I always go for MP four. And then this is the caption style. I'll go with Bond in captions, including the quiz that we have inside. And if you want to check out more options, you can click on this. So you have these March options like the compression type 264, the frame rate, you can change everything from here, but I do generally leave it at default, everything here works perfect, has been working perfect for me, So don't touch anything. If you want to see other export as web pages, you want to export this export as web pages. The quiz if you want, you can check the options over here and see what you can change. This is the dimension, the embedded size of the quiz that you're going to have. This is going to be exported as a web page. Okay, so you can quickly answer and move on to the next option or you can continue watching the movie. So once you set everything you're citing with what you have, you're citing with the location and the file format and the caption styling, He can go ahead and click on Export. And this is going to start rendering and exporting your video to that particular location that we've defined. Okay, so we just give you some seconds. Once you finish exporting, you can view our video, You can replay it, play it, and share it. And then see the sounds and saw and how it looks and how, what are some of the things you can change and how you can improve.
