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.

Vyond

I work for a small company, so everyone tends to be involved in a lot of projects. This can make it difficult to book time with the leadership team to record them for company announcements or other similar needs. Vyond is the perfect solution for a video that doesn't depend on other people's schedules. For added fun, I can make the characters look like our leadership team and even borrow their voices from meetings, conference calls, or other announcements. This lets me create the illusion that our leaders are directly sharing information with new hires or individual team members without actually requiring them to take time out of their day

Pros

Camtasia

  • Very intuitive controls. You don't need to be a pro at video editing
  • 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)

  • Easy to use features that help you create the story behind your video.
  • There are collaboration tools (if you have the right plan) that help you work on a video as a team.
  • I like the different styles of video that you can choose from.

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.

  • Possibly make the interface a bit more detailed in order to show the triggers on assets at all times.
  • Allow more functions to be available when your right click.
  • The ability to easily transfer from video to video that have previously been produced.

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 was recently at a conference where I learned that many of my peers also use Vyond, solidifying my opinion that it is the right tool for out needs. Further more, one of our content vendors also uses it, ensuring that I will continue to use it as I believe this will facilitate our collaborations in the future

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

This program is great when you have no video experience! There's only a little of a learning curve to the program. In general, the user interface is great and easier than using a program like Adobe premier. It's a great resource to use as a marketer.

Vyond is just an animated video creation tool. You have to use your video content and track its performance through other means. Because it is an online tool it doesn't hog your resources or slow down any other tools that I use. It is a stand-alone product and it doesn't need to integrate with any of our other tools. It does what it does and that is all we need.

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.

I haven’t had any issues that required me to contact their support team. However, I believe support in any product starts before you have to call for help. Vyond provides an option for priority queue when you have their professional option. This is great for folks who need things done faster, especially when businesses can’t afford any downtime. Their Live chat feature is also reassuring, because I don’t always want to spend time on the phone or on hold if their call volume is high and I need to solve an issue.

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.

I can't say exactly which one I would recommend more, but the pros of BranchTrack are that they offer the ability to upload voicefiles which will automatically attach to each scene, saving A LOT of time. They're program is also very easy to move scenes around in and having the ability to reroute someone back to an earlier scene is nice. It also provides the user interaction vs. just watching a video. However, GoAnimate on the other hand allows you to customize background and scene layouts a little more than BranchTrack does. It's also better if you don't want the user interaction

Return on Investment

Camtasia

  • Many faculty members used it because it was easy to use and accomplish what they needed.
  • No need for a lot of training or follow-up training due to it being very to use.
  • Account management within our system and assigning permissions required a few steps when granting access.

  • Thanks to GoAnimate we can now present products and services in a more modern and engaging way. These videos are more viewed than other content. The learners love these videos which maintain a friendly atmosphere.
  • We believe that GoAnimate is the most affordable solution for creating animated videos. We definitively save money in comparison to hiring a production company for creating such videos.
