Camtasia

Camtasia is the right level of powerful enough to get most jobs done without being so complex that you need a degree to use it. I describe to people as Power Point with the additional dimension of time. I know there are more powerful tool out there. I consciously have chosen to not go down that rabbit hole because I never run into a scenario where I feel like I'm left wanting.

Our content marketing team easily turn their blog posts into quick and short videos, perfect for sharing on social media. The videos can be turned from a blog post or online article into a slick video in under an hour, and look just as professional as videos created in Adobe software or on iMovie.

Pros

Camtasia

  • Seamless control of assets (separates video from still images)
  • Great library of annotations and gestures
  • Easy to integrate audio/video edits
  • Custom formats that suit my needs (web, mobile, tablets)

Cons

Camtasia

  • Camtasia seems to struggle sometimes with large videos (and I'm on a machine with 32GB RAM), especially with multiple tracks. Sometimes it will freeze when trying to move a track, making it challenging to place it exactly where I want it.
  • There have been a couple of instances where sharing large videos has locked up the program. I didn't lost any work, but I had to restart the process.
  • I wish the audio controls were a little more granular, but that is a minor complaint since the application includes a lot for the price.

  • Audio options aren't great
  • Previews sometimes lag
  • Needs some more templates

Each release of Camtasia has added just enough functionality to justify the upgrade to the new version. I like that Camtasia is not a subscription-based product as we have more flexibility and control over our spend on the product. We can also purchase support packages that include the next version when released.

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

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

Camtasia

It has a simple user interface with free tutorial video which helps the user to acquire a necessary skill to use the software. The pricing of the software product is not too expensive with multiple subscription policy. For a user with entry and intermediate level of editing skill can create amazing contents.
