Project Settings And Presets
The Project Settings dialog box appears the first time you add a clip to the Timeline. Select a preset and resizing options for your video.
A preset contains production settings optimized for your intended distribution method: Blog, CD, DVD-Ready, HD, iPhone, iPod, Screencast.com, Web, or YouTube. Select a preset to preview how your final video will look produced at the selected dimensions.
The Production Wizard automatically selects the preset chosen in the Project Settings dialog box to produce what you previewed during editing. For best results, produce your video with this preset.
- To enter a custom width and height for the editing dimensions, enter dimensions (in pixels) into the Width and Height fields.
- To maintain the original dimensions of the clip, select Recording Dimensions.
For best results with the Custom or Recording Dimensions options, select the Custom production settings option in the Production Wizard.
If you select a preset with dimensions smaller than the source clip's dimensions, Camtasia Studio resizes all clips on the Timeline to the dimensions selected in the Project Settings.
Select from the following resizing options:
- Select Change the video dimensions and apply SmartFocus to automatically generate Zoom-n-Pan keyframes for all clips added to the Timeline. SmartFocus optimizing viewing at the dimensions selected. See <insert link to camtasia smartfocus overview>.
- Select Change the video dimensions to change the video dimensions, but not apply SmartFocus. SmartFocus can still be applied at a later time.
