Camtasia Studio 8: How We Use Hotspots

If you’ve watched any of our video tutorials, you may have noticed that we usually include a clickable link to surveys or other tutorials.

Well, as long as your videos are delivered through the TechSmith Smart Player, you can do the exact same thing!  You can do even more with a little creativity – like use hotspots to break a video into sections or create a custom table of contents.
