- [Instructor] Sometimes after you record your video,…you may find yourself saying, gee, I need to add…just a bit of clarification to tell this story.…Well, Annotations can help you do just that.…You can add Callouts, Arrows, Shapes,…Blurs & Highlights, Sketch Motion,…and even Keystroke Callouts right on top…of your existing tracks.…There are oodles to choose from.…I'm gonna demonstrate a few by adding them to…this collection of clips I recorded earlier.…Let's go ahead and give it a listen.…
Next up is the canvas.…This is essentially your movie screen.…Okay, let's start with Callouts.…I want to draw the viewer's eye to the canvas.…So I'm gonna look through here.…I can either browse all or I can browse by category.…I'm gonna take this one here and I'm just gonna drag it…to the timeline and Camtasia creates a new track for me.…Okay, now I need to adjust it obviously.…If I click on the arrow, I can drag it around,…reposition it, and if I click on these handles…I can resize it.…
If I hold the Shift key, I keep it in proportion.…
