Pain Ripples Through My Fingers
UPDATE from Camtasia:
TechSmith on Get Satisfaction!
Leanne Gee, an employee of TechSmith, commented on a reply in Ripple delete in Camtasia 8, a question about TechSmith.
I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with ripple deletes on Camtasia for Mac. Here's a tutorial you might find helpful. It was recorded on an earlier version of the software, but the process is essentially the same.
Ripple delete has been a great feature, which disappeared with newer versions of Camtasia in the recent past.
Camtasia for Windows seems to have fixed it's ripple delete issues as per a getsatisfaction update from one of the employees. I tested the latest update for the mac (version 2.3.1) and the ripple delete remains elusive.
About 6 months ago, I had tried to raise the issue that ripple delete feature in the Mac version is either mis-labeled or badly programmed, or both. It does not work like ripple delete in standard non-liner editing software found in the industry.
Ripple delete should work like any program worth its salt. Ripple delete is useless if other tracks stay where they are, ruining any B-roll positioned carefully downstream on the timeline. Ripple delete is a sad misnomer in Camtasia for Mac
