Here are 3 main functions of this software.


1. Screen Recording

Record whatever part of your screen you need, down to the pixel. Camtasia’s precise crosshairs make it simple to capture windows, regions, or your entire desktop.


2. Video Editing

After you record, Camtasia will import your system audio, screen video, cursor, and microphone onto their own tracks, so you can easily edit them separately. Camtasia’s video editor makes it painless to cut out mistakes or patch in new footage. With the editing timeline, you have control over every frame in your video.


3. Webcam Recording

Put a face to your voice. Simply turn on your webcam when you start screencasting, and Camtasia will automatically add it as a separate track.  By showing your face in a screencast, viewers can connect with you more easily and possibly understand your video content better.

Pricey | “Camtasia Review” by Danny Chadwick

Camtasia has all of the essential recording and editing tools to capture video effectively, whether you make videos for fun or for work. There are too many steps to choose some options, but we commend it for having a solid support structure for professionals and amateurs.

PROS / Camtasia has editing tools to satisfy either professionals or casual users.

CONS / The software is difficult to learn. | “CAMTASIA STUDIO REVIEW” by MARY MITCHELL

Camtasia is seen as the best program on the market for screen recording. It’s hard to argue that point. Looking closely at the features available only confirms that no other program is able to match Camtasia. If you are more heavy on some advanced editing feature Pinnacle Studio 18 is also a great option. | “Feature Rich Video Editing Is Just The Begining” Customer Reviews by Peter Suslock

TechSmith is a great, consumer friendly developer. Support is free – always. You talk to a live person who knows the program inside and out. What is more, via remote access I’ve found the Techs more than willing to reach into my computer and show me exactly what the steps are – as well as hidden short cuts and keyboard based tricks that get you moving along faster
