Adobe Premiere Pro

Premiere Pro is especially helpful for those with a basic knowledge of video creation, who want to make professional grade video content without having to rely on an agency. As someone who does marketing for the companies I work for, as well as occasionally freelancing, I find that Premiere Pro really fits my needs nicely. I wouldn't necessarily suggest it for someone just starting out in editing, at least not without some additional learning first.

Camtasia

We have a very limited number of team members to support a very large organization. Camtasia provides us a platform to produce content we're proud to present to the company while saving us the time of putting together full elearning videos. I'm not suggesting that there isn't a place for both, but this helps us save time when we don't have a lot of it. We can create video screen shares, that capture the quick attention of our target audience and function very closely to a YouTube style of video that our demographic is used to

Pros

  • It's an all-encompassing platform for video content creators. I've never needed come across a time where I needed a feature present and it wasn't there.
  • Premiere pro's ability to easily edit not only video but audio in many capacities is especially helpful. It's nice not to have to go into Audition for slight audio changes.
  • The quality of videos produced in Premiere, even by non-professionals is very impressive. It's very possible to create professional commercial grade promotions with this program.

  • Camtasia comes with a set of "library assets" which are templates, images, motion graphics, and audio files that fit together to create an overall style for a video. Without a lot of experience working with video, these help novice designers develop a more polished product more rapidly.
  • The interface itself is very intuitive. The tools provided with Camtasia allow users to do a lot with video and the way in which a user would accomplish various tasks is pretty easy to understand and execute.
  • Compared to more robust software platforms, like Adobe Premiere or Final Cut, Camtaisa lets people who don't need that level of software deliver high-quality video products quickly. Camtasia isn't basic and it isn't robust - but it certainly meets the need for the price point.

Cons

  • All those features are a bit of a double-edged sword. As is frequently a criticism with Adobe products, the learning curve is steep. But that's the nature of the beast with professional-level software.
  • There have been many times when I've gone to tweak the volume levels of a clip or a track using keyframes, only to find that some setting has disabled keyframes for audio tracks. This has resulted in needing to search online for a way to re-enable the keyframes. It's not a bug -- this is a clear choice by Adobe as they want to help make sure you don't make dumb mistakes after having invested a lot of time in a complex project, but I have still found it annoying.
  • One of the pros (flexibility in organization) can also be a con -- I would love to see Adobe encourage MORE organization right from the start, as often I'll start a project and then realize "Oh my goodness, I have to do a ton of cleanup here in order to keep 100's of files straight."

  • Camtasia lacks some of the pro options that are required to complete our videos. We often turn to some of our full-featured applications to finish a project.
  • The import/export file formats are very limited.

The look is slick but it doesn't favor the most frequently used tools (fades, mute audio, add text callout) over other less frequently used/unnecessary features (animations, greenscreen, etc.)

Alternatives Considered

In my opinion, recent times there is an equal competition between those two. If you want to decrease the cost of machine acquisition on windows that can decrease your investment cost since Macs are pretty expensive.

Not able to select, but used the free version of Avid Media Composer which is much more complicated to use than Camtasia and doesn't offer that many additional features. Filmora only has 2 video layers limitation and 2 audio layer limitation, VEGAS Pro is also more complicated and takes more steps to achieve the same level of video edits. Both Filmora and Vegas have better effects backs and integration with adding animation, but for business related videos, straight editing, manipulation of video and audio Camtasia is better in my opinion.
