You can also generate the files needed to put your video on a webpage, Apple device, or send it to iDVD.
TechSmith's exclusive SmartFocus technology keeps track of where the action happens during your recording. Then it produces a video that zooms in on the parts you need to show.
Camtasia SmartFocus™ is ideal for videos where the source clip or recording dimensions are large (ex. full screen recording) and you want to produce the final video at smaller dimensions (ex. for the Web or an iPod). If you produce at dimensions smaller than the dimensions of the source clip, the content in the video may be too small and difficult to view.
SmartFocus allows you to quickly change the video dimensions for different destinations. SmartFocus automatically generates Zoom-n-Pan keyframes to optimize viewing at any dimensions.
SmartFocus collects data about the actions completed and the cursor movement in the recording. SmartFocus predicts where to add zoom effects, saving you time to manually find and insert all the frames to zoom or pan.
