    Is there a way to record video when using a pen tablet. For instance if I want to animate drawing a simple circle or arrow in the video. Is that possible with Vegas? If not what, what is used to do that? Thanks.

    Hi Roger,

    Checkout something like SnagIt (Techsmith) – I think they have a version which creates video from the screen – Camtasia. While it is possible to animate in Vegas, it can be tedious.

    I use Camtasia for doing drawing animation, I open a graphics app ( Photoshop ), open Camtasia and then record capture the Photoshop screen of all the pen movements. The close Camtasia and Share the file as an MP4 in whatever size you want to your relevant folder. You may want to make the back ground colour in Photoshop ( or whatever app you have ) to green then you can chromakey that out in Vegas when you overlay you amination.

    I have snagit and gave it a try and that works but I’ll have to green screen or mask out the background. Thanks for suggesting it.

    I’ll look up Camtasia and give a try. Thanks
