Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere is a program to have professional results. This program has amazing design tools. It is a program that we use to make videos with professional audios and transitions between images. We recommend this software to make precise cuts and build a video with parts of other videos. Its use is to look for results that allow you to have important achievements.
Now, this program is not for making simple video edits, because we believe it would be wasted

In looking at client's existing websites and speaking our thoughts about them to our potential web design clients via screencast videos, Camtasia is nearly the perfect solution. Camtasia is also great for providing project updates and training videos to our web design clients. For complex integrated screencast presentations, we might need to integrate a better software program like Adobe Premier or After Effects. For faster and more simple screencast vidoes we use Jing via Screencast.com instead

Pros

Adobe Premiere Pro

  • The color tab at the top of the program enables quick edits and adjustments to color correction and grading. Very similar to Lightroom.
  • GPU acceleration. GPU accelerated effects are labeled to help you decide how and what effects to use for smoother editing.
  • Labels and organization is made easy with the ability to color code your various clips in the timeline and bin.
  • The audio tab at the top makes audio adjustments quick and easy. It has many of the features that Audition has built in.

Camtasia

  • The product is extremely intuitive. For a first time user, it doesn't take long to be able to produce a minimum viable product.
  • There are enough editing capabilities to produce high-end, professional looking videos. Voice narrate, highlight cursors, zoom and pan, seamless transitions.
  • The layout is simple and helps keep your projects in line. Being able to drag and drop from the clip bin to the timeline and then move objects around to the second makes creating easy.

Cons

Adobe Premiere Pro

  • There are a lot of third party add-ons. It would be nice if PP offered more filters.
  • Sometimes trying to get a video to load into the Source Monitor, it doesn't want to work.
  • Export media occasionally fails.
  • PP used to offer a whole bevy of export media options. It was nice! Then they updated the program and took all those away. Not happy about that.

  • Both a pro and a con of it being easy to use is that it has limited features.
  • Better video editing abilities.
  • More enhancements on creating videos. Added webcam in the video would be nice while presenting.
  • Automated closed captioning would be great!

I haven't used another video recording and editing tools that is as comprehensive and straight-forward as Camtasia. Typically, if you want a user-friendly video editing tools for novice users, you have to compromise on features. Camtasia solves this problem by offering extensive editing features in a simplistic, user-friendly environment. Highly recommend

We have only ever had to use their online knowledge base to get answers to all our questions.Along with what Adobe provides, the user base for Premiere Pro is very large, so there is a lot of information available for free. Any question you might have will have multiple videos and written content to walk you through solving your query.

With the latest version (Camtasia 2020), I actually had problems with an Imac with HighSierra, but from the first moment they answered and guided me to solve the problem, even before making the purchase (with some doubts I had). And they have support in English and Spanish, I really liked that.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro is by far the best video software of the selected products. It does not have the best audio editing capabilities nor video graphic design capabilities but good enough ones where it can help you out in a pinch if your primary goal is to edit the video. The best-case scenario is to use Premiere Pro alongside the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite and maybe bring in ProTools for things like audio editing and ON24 for streaming services. Adobe Premiere Pro is far more intuitive than Final Cut Pro will ever be and its integration with the creative suite makes it a far more affordable option for any video editor.

Premiere overall all is a more robust software but it requires a level of expertise most of our everyday user don't have as with Adobe After Effects it really requires formal education/training in videography or multimedia to be able to properly capitalize on. We also use Google Loom with has some similar features but lacks any post-production editing or enhancement features

Return on Investment

Adobe Premiere Pro

  • Adobe hasn't had a direct impact on our company's ROI. It has been used for videos disseminated internally or through social media. It has been a communication tool.
  • While we don't look to Premiere Pro to be a money-maker, it has raised the bar and ambition of our video-related projects, which could have the knock-on effect of giving us an image boost in the long run.

  • The value for this product is the ability to become proficient at using it in a very relative short period of time.
  • The price point is very low for such a feature rich product. It almost is addictive. I have found myself trying to find videos to create just so I can use the product.
  • Contracting out to a company to create videos will cost you much more than the small investment made in this software. Even if you invest in some of the other TechSmith products that can be used to supplement content to your videos, you will still find yourself well under a budget for a contractor.
