Learn how to scale media in a recording.
- [Presenter] Let's take a look at scaling your media,…for the best look in your project.…So here I have this video clip…that I shot at full HD 1920 by 1080.…I'm gonna go ahead and drag that to the timeline.…Let's find a nice frame that's in focus.…Right about there look's pretty good.…Now if you look over here in the properties panel,…my video clip has been rescaled to about 67%.…It's been scaled down to fit the 1280 by 720 canvas.…Camtasia automatically resizes my video…to match my project dimensions.…
Now if I want to, I can scale this up.…I can go all the way up,…to 100% without losing any sharpness.…I can scale it here with the slider,…or if I want to I can also scale it here on the canvas.…Do which ever works better for you.…I'm gonna put that to 100%,…and I'm gonna zoom out of that here…so you can see what's going on.…Since my video is scaled up beyond the canvas dimensions,…I can reframe things for a different look.…
If I want to, I can just create…a tighter shot here, like that.…I'll zoom back in to see how that looks.…
