Join Chris Mattia for an in-depth discussion in this video Using SmartFocus, part of Camtasia Studio 8 Essential Training.
In an earlier movie, we talked about using various different techniques for applying the effect …of SmartFocus within our movie. …In this movie, were going to open up the file that I went in and recorded and look at the …effect of SmartFocus on this particular movie. …Now the only thing that I've done to this movie is I've added a couple of markers in …here to assist us with our editing portions, otherwise this is the straight raw CAMREC…and CAMPROJ file that were created from the recording. …I'm going to go ahead and click on the small widget right here at the bottom of Track 2 …to open up and show us our animations.…
These small animation icons which we've seen before are the SmartFocus animations that …have automatically been added in to our timeline for us by Camtasia Studio. …Let's go ahead and play the video and see how Camtasia has applied SmartFocus to this video. …You can watch the timeline as it moves along to see the locations where it synchronizes to …the various different animations. We'll go ahead and press Play and watch the video. …
