Opening a new program can be both exciting and daunting. It’s especially exciting when a new version of software is released and works great. With the recent update of Camtasia from version 8 to version 9, we are seeing quite a few changes in how that user interface is put together. Generally the principles and organization are the same, but there are some key differences.
If you are curious about editing basics, we recently hosted a beginner’s guide webinar that you can view by clicking here.
In the video below, I’ll be going over some of the more advanced editing techniques and some of the tips and tricks that I used to succeed in my eLearning Brothers production. I’ll also show some of the new things to expect if you upgrade to Camtasia 9, including a new user interface, a new properties menu, and some other improvements.
Some of the tips I’ll outline include the following:
- How to substitute corrected dialogue tracks in for incorrect tracks
- How to use the new Camtasia behaviors to up your visual game
- How and when to put in a lower thirds graphic
- Other best practices
Let me know in the comments if you have any questions!
This blog is the ninth in a series documenting the production process in producing a company video for eLearning Brothers. The series will cover several items from pre-production, to production, to post-production. Click here to view the previous blog in the series (Camtasia Interactions).
