I use a whole range of video editing applications and for me one of the most natural ways to navigate the timeline in these apps is to use a pinch gesture on my trackpad. I actually bought a trackpad solely for this purpose, it’s all I use it for and to save time swapping between the mouse, my Shuttle Pro and the trackpad I use it left handed.

The problem is not all apps support this type of navigation and Camtasia 2 for Mac from TechSmith is one of the ones that doesn’t. But never one to be beaten I have hacked a solution to this oversight and share how you can do the same in this video tutorial.

You can download Camtasia for Mac at the TechSmith website and Better Touch Tool from Boastr.net.
