Adding Reusable Bouncing Arrows in Camtasia for Mac

Wouldn’t it be great if you could animate arrows in your video to point out what’s really important? And what about making those animated arrows seem like they bounce to make them more interesting? Then, wouldn’t it also be amazing if, after all of that work, you could save those fancy arrows to use elsewhere?

Well, my friends, today you’re in luck, because that’s exactly what this tutorial is about.

Now I know it’s a bit longer than normal, but hopefully you’ll find it chock full of other helpful tid bits that can help you edit in Camtasia no matter what project you’re working on. Either way, I’ve included a table of contents to help you jump around if you need to.

Also, if you haven’t already, you may want to watch the video on Global Edit Mode, since I make heavy use of that feature.

Cheers and Happy Holidays!
