Join Chris Mattia for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing visual properties, part of Camtasia Studio 8 Essential Training.
Before we leave this chapter on basic editing techniques, there is one more set…of tools that you need to know and that's how to edit the visual properties of…an object that's selected on your canvas.…Let's go ahead and use the jump to Next clip button here in our timeline to jump…forward to this clip.…We'll then go ahead and click one time on the object on our canvas and then…by clicking the More button here we'll select Visual Properties from the dropdown menu.…The Visual Properties tab allows us to have more precise control over the…specific parameters of our object.…
For instance, we can use this slider here to adjust the scale of the object.…That slider is exactly the same as grabbing the handle on the corner of one of…our objects and adjusting the scale there.…We can also adjust the opacity of any object using this slider.…That way if we want to have our object to be partially see-through to see…to another object that may be on the canvas, behind this primary object, we…can adjust that here.…
