TechSmith Camtasia is an amazing tool for capturing and publishing conceptual videos and procedural demonstrations. Used properly, Camtasia’s advanced animation features can turn your video from boring to amazing. But the seemingly high learning curve and production time often dissuades Camtasia users from taking advantage of these important capabilities. It doesn’t help that your organization increasingly expects your team to build more videos in half the time.

In this hands-on session, you’ll get practice with the different animation capabilities of Camtasia, and you’ll implement practical patterns and techniques to make your videos more engaging. After this session, you’ll be able to animate your videos quickly and efficiently without sacrificing productivity or deadlines.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to design animation patterns in your storyboard
  • How to use behaviors and effects
  • How to animate cursors and text
  • How to use standard and custom animations on multiple media
