Lower thirds are graphic overlays that add professionalism to a project. Utilize the Camtasia 9 media library to add lower thirds to a video project.
- [Narrator] Lower thirds can be a great way…to give your video a more professional look.…Lower thirds are graphic overlays that appear…in the lower third of your video screen and usually…emphasize a person's name or highlight a topic.…Here in Camtasia Studio, I've opened a webcam video…I recorded earlier, introducing myself to my students.…I want to add my name to the beginning of the video.…And I want to use a lower third to do this.…I'm going to click on Media, and then Library.…
The Library is a built in collection of graphics…and media that can be added to Camtasia projects.…I'm going to expand the menu for…Motion Graphics - Lower Thirds.…I have seven lower third options to choose from here.…To preview what the lower third will look like,…I'm going to double click on the graphic name.…Camtasia will open up a preview screen.…I'm going to x out of that preview,…and let's try a few others.…So I can see that each one has…a different style, has it's own characteristics.…
Okay, I like this one, the shimmer.…Let's go ahead and add that to our project.…
