2. Cursor Path Editing

Screen recording is an essential tool for creating eLearning content. It can be used to create training videos, explainer videos, simulations, and other types of online presentations.

Previously, when recording a screen, the cursor’s path had to be carefully drawn in order to represent the information being highlighted. If the path of the cursor is not carefully highlighted, the recording may be not useful, and you will have to re-record the entire video. This is the core issue with screen recording.

Now you don’t have to worry about whether you got everything highlighted correctly or missed something to highlight because you can adjust the cursor path on the fly with Camtasia’s cursor path editing option. This magic is only possible with Camtasia’s smart screen recordings.

3. Automatic Vector Cursor Replacement

If you have old screen recordings, but the content has changed, wondering what to do with them? Are you thinking of re-recording them? Don’t worry, you don’t have to re-record the videos again.

The Automatic Cursor Replacement feature in Camtasia will automatically replace the old cursor with the new cursor, which will allow you to edit and enhance your old recordings like never before.

5. Blend Mode Effect

In the world of the digital era, one of the most common questions you’ll hear is “do video effects really need for eLearning videos?” The answer is yes. It’s a matter of choice, but we recommend that you use them. Why? Because they make your video look better and more professional, as well as make it easier for learners to consume your content.

Camtasia’s blend mode feature comes with a wide range of options, including Dissolve, Darken, Multiply, Colour Burn, Linear Burn and Lighten Overlay, and so on. You can use all these effects to blend your media objects together like never before.

7. Outline Edges 

We find it fascinating to watch an artist create art from scratch on a blank canvas, as there is something inherently captivating about it. Is it your goal to create an eLearning video that has an artistic flair? I’ve got you, you’re in the right place. Camtasia’s outline edges feature makes it easy to turn any video into a sketch that turns any type of content into a more professional look.
