Overall Satisfaction with Camtasia

My organization currently uses Camtasia for screen captures videos. We also use it to match background music to other videos that we have recorded elsewhere. Camtasia is the go-to tool for members of my organization who do not have extensive video editing experience because it is easy for them to use.

Pros

  • Screen Capture
  • Simple Video Editing

Cons

  • Move complex video editing features
  • The ability to be exact when cutting and splicing a video
  • Sometimes the publishing options are overwhelming
  • Reduced cost on video software
  • Affordable solution to screen capture videos
Adobe offers you a lot more tools and control over what you are doing when editing a video, but there tends to be a lot of features you never use and get overly complicated. Camtasia offers the basic tools that you need to get almost any job done if perfection is not required.
I have only interacted with Tech Smith's support a few times, but overall they have been great. I know that they have a strong history of providing great support to other users.

Do you think Camtasia delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Camtasia's feature set?

Yes

Did Camtasia live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Camtasia go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Camtasia again?

Yes

Camtasia is ideal for those who want to do quick edits to a video, or they need to record basic onscreen simulations. It's less appropriate if you need to make complex videos with multiple layers that are public-facing.
