I had a large 40 minute video file with several demos and wanted to refer to parts of it in a presentation. That’s simple to open the file with a hyperlink but I didn’t want to be searching for the correct section during the presentation and there were no chapter markers.
After deciding the simplest solution would be creating a separate file for each part I set to work in Camtasia. My intention was to create a project then export each demo to create a separate file. That was going to be easier if they had a marker so went through and added them first.
I then discovered on “production” you get offered the the choice to include markers and, if you want, create a separate file for each section between them! Click the button, wander off for a Friday afternoon coffee, come back to find the folder of split files. Perfect!
Note: These images show Camtasia 4, the current version should have the same features but the UI may differ.
I wrote this way back on 07-29-2006, but just found it sitting in drafts, so here tis!
