Camtasia Essentials: Organizing Project Files

eLearning Brothers

However, bins are not available in Camtasia 9, so you have to come up with alternatives. In this blog, I’ll give you three ideas on how to organize your work so that you can keep your head on straight when using Camtasia 9. Since Camtasia 9 doesn’t have an in-editor file system, you’ll want to use your computer’s File Explorer (or Finder for Mac) for these organizations. But it doesn’t help you keep your files organized once they’re in Camtasia.

TechSmith Camtasia Studio: Adding Closed Captions

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel        Closed captioning (CC) allows you to provide descriptive information in your published eLearning project that typically matches the voiceover audio contained in your Camtasia project. During this post I'm going to show you how you can add the captions manually (by typing or copying/pasting from an existing script), and how to have Camtasia transcribe the voiceover audio using the Speech-to-text feature.

The Twill Theme Will Make Your Camtasia Content Shine

eLearning Brothers

Luckily TechSmith’s Camtasia is here to help you quickly and easily make eLearning videos that look great! What you may not already know is that eLearning Brothers has loads of templates that are ready to be placed into your Camtasia project TODAY! In this example, I placed the lower third over the top of a Camtasia library asset called “floatingboxes” that can be found inside the default Camtasia library. Using video for eLearning is no new idea.

TECHSMITH CAMTASIA: Delete vs. Ripple Delete

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

  Deleting a portion of an object on the Camtasia Timeline (a few seconds from the end of a video for example) is simple: drag the red in- and/or green out-point on either side of the Playhead, right-click, and then choose Delete.     As an alternative to simply Deleting (and getting a gap), this is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of an often overlooked Camtasia feature: Ripple Delete (the option is just below Delete in the menu).

Using Camtasia to Glue Your Learners to the Screen

eLearning Brothers

To do so, I’ll use the following video as an example, digging into my Camtasia project file to show you how each segment was done. Camtasia 9 has helped us by giving us loads of simple tools that can make boring bits like this way more visually exciting. I had a short clip of scrolling through the eLearning Brothers template library, brought it into Camtasia, and BAM.

Implementing Interactive Hotspots in the new Camtasia 9

eLearning Brothers

Luckily, TechSmith’s Camtasia offers a fantastic solution, and that is the interactive video. In previous blogs I’ve written about how to integrate an HTML file with your interactive Camtasia course. This is key information, as it is what makes Camtasia more than a video editor, and an extremely useful tool as a course creation platform. To view an example of that, feel free to jump over and view a webinar I hosted on that subject.

For many Camtasia users, this gigantic library of images is not being tapped, an enormous asset being left by the wayside, a mammoth collection of potential that is not being reached, merely because no use can be found for them.

Camtasia and Captivate

Adobe Captivate

Hello All, I have been using Camtasia these past few years creating videos and I’ve recently been asked to create interactive videos.

For example, I’d like to show the first 5 seconds of my video but the next 20 seconds should be condensed to 5 secs b/c it’s just somebody typing in a field.
