Camtasia

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

Filmora

Filmora works perfectly for our needs. I have to create video presentations for 3 of our awards ceremonies outlining the shortlist and then announcing the winner. Filmora is a great cost-effective, easy to use software that is great for an editing novice like myself. There are lots of preset features that make it easy to use.

Pros

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.

Filmora

  • Managing the content of your project is easy. Buttons are there to quickly access video, audio, titles, and transitions.
  • The online store makes it easy to add new effects as needed. There's a good selection of options so your videos don't have to all look the same.
  • Exporting your project includes many options and formats, including some direct publishing options.

Cons

Camtasia

  • 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

Everything I have tried to do was easy to figure out. The export and online store where you get additional titles, etc. have very minor issues, correct those and it's a solid 10.

I have had zero need to reach out to Camtasia support that I remember. I view this as a strength. That said, I have performed verbal interviews and electronic surveys with members of the Camtasia team. Their proactive reaching out has been helpful and instilled a belief that they are committed to their customers. Additionally, regular feature releases reinforce this belief.

Alternatives Considered

Camtasia

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

Filmora

Filmora has a better effects, transition option pack than other services and it is less than half the price of Camtasia. However, it is limited to 2 video tracks only where Avid One which is free allows 4 video tracks. Camtasia has better layered video on top of video features, but Filmora is faster at cutting/trimming video than Camtasia if you want to segment out or slice out portions of videos it can be done in less steps. Often I start working on a video with Filmora and finish it up in Camtasia or Avid One. Filmora effects pack are its biggest selling point and it's awesome that they come out with new ones every month.

Return on Investment

Camtasia

  • 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.

Filmora

  • It means we don't have to outsource!
  • Easy to use for a novice.
