Overall Satisfaction with Snagit

We primarily use Snagit to capture screenshots and produce videos for training videos that are distributed to our entire department. Regarding screenshots, compared to the snipping tool in Windows, Snagit offers much more editing options. It also has a capture delay, so if you want to show a drop-down menu, for example, you can set the delay for a couple of seconds, click on the menu, and Snagit will take the screenshot. You can never do that with the snipping tool.
  • Delayed screen capture allows snapshot of dropdown menus or any other fields that require clicking on.
  • Produces excellent videos that you can easily edit and organize
  • Offers a substantial amount of editing features for screenshots including text options
  • Very user-friendly
  • Although in most cases Snagit's screenshot editing tools are sufficient, they could probably expand the options a bit
  • For videos, it seems to often cut off the last word or so when you stop recording
  • We could not have created the training materials we produced for end-users using a new budget EPM system without Snagit. In that regard, the small cost of the product has had a great positive impact
I can only compare Snagit to the Windows snipping tool. Snagit offers much more flexibility in the type and scope of screenshots you can capture. The delay capture is a great feature that allows you to navigate menus or click on buttons to get a screenshot you need. Snagit's video capture is also very sharp and easy to use.
Snagit is excellent for capturing video and screenshots for the purposes of creating organizational training materials. It would be very challenging to create the screenshots we do just using the Windows snipping tool. If, however, you just want a quick screenshot to send in an email, I just stick with the snipping tool. However, for screenshot videos, I would 100% use Snagit.
