Making a callout move when scrolling

Using Screenflow 10. I need to blur some text that moves when scrolled but can't figure out how to do this. I've seen the discussion from 5 years ago but still can't figure it out.

    The Callouts don't move at this time. You can try duplicating the video, crop into the blur and animate that clip with a video action and kind of fake it. There's been a feature request to animate callouts.

    CraigS Thanks for the idea. I get the first part of the instructions but what do you mean by "animate that clip with a video action"? Would I be trying to get the blur to follow the first clips video scrolling?

      Carl Roe Video Action allows you to animate a clip over time.

    If I understand this technique correctly I'd need to create multiple video actions of the blurred text and position them individually to follow as the screen scrolls? Or is there a way to get the blurred area to start at one point, end at another point, and move there over a specified period?

      Carl Roe An Action is movement from point A to B. It's ScreenFlow's way of doing two keyframes. One action start and end points may match the movement in the video.

    CraigS Ah yeah, I see that now. I tried that before but must not have got the settings right. I've got the blurred area to move, although it's not in sync with the video. Here's what's happening. https://share.getcloudapp.com/p9uXWe5k

    How do I adjust the speed at which the blur moves?

    Can I adjust the speed of the blur moving, or do I need to adjust the speed of the video to match? Or something else?

    I really appreciate your help.

     Change the duration of the Action. It's definitely a bit tricky to get things to lineup especially since the original scroll was by hand and the action move is linear. There has been feature requests to add tracking to ScreenFlow which would make this easier.
