REVIEW – CAMTASIA STUDIO 2018 from TECHSMITH
Camtasia Recorder[ edit ] In Camtasia Recorder, the presenter can start and stop recording with a hotkey combination at any time, at which point the recording can be halted and Camtasia Recorder can render the input that has been captured into a CAMREC format. Camtasia Recorder allows audio recording while screen-capturing is in progress, so the presenter can capture live narration during a demonstration or presentation. Camtasia also supports dubbing in other audio tracks or voiceover during post-capture editing. Users may also download an add-in for Microsoft Power Point that will allow them to initiate recording of a presentation from within Power Point itself. In Camtasia editor, multimedia objects of various formats can be imported into the clip library and arrange them in time order and stacked tracks using the timeline form of user controls.

Major Geeks Special Offer: Used by Majorgeeks for their YouTube videos Camtasia has the right tools for creating professional screen videos without the need for formal training.
With Camtasia, you can easily create effective videos that help you train, teach, or sell. Camtasia recorder is designed to allow you to create videos directly from the desktop screen. Simply select all of your screen or a portion, hit record and you are off to the races. Now, remember, you are probably planning to upload the video you create to YouTube or Vimeo, so you should use a reasonable size for your project.
Without going too far into video formats types and sizes, I personally just click the drop-down on the ‘Custom’ tab of the record menu and pick the largest size. Then I fit the window I intend to record into that defined box. That approach takes some of the sizing errors out of the mix and makes your life a lot easier later on. Recording your desktop allows you to do walk-through videos like we do on our Youtube channel, record a favorite game, make a tutorial for other coworkers – whatever you like.
You can even drop in your webcam for something more personal. When finished working, Camtasia has a full-featured platform for editing the recorded video – cut, crop, transitions, etc. As well as the ability to edit the audio you may have recorded or even adding a backing music mix.
So if you happened to stammer or spoke too softly in the original, it’s no problem just to start recording a new track and replace the old one with two or three clicks.
When you are finished with your project, you need to click “Produce and Share” to convert everything to a playable video file.
You’ll have some formats to choose from. You even have a choice to upload directly to Youtube if you like. Usually the bigger, the better. One other option is the proprietary SmartPlayer option. SmartPlayer allows some very cool user interactivity in your videos such as navigation buttons and quizzes. However, this player is either used as a stand-alone product or uploaded to TechSmith’s screencast site. It will not work on YouTube or other video sharing sites.
Version History for Camtasia:
Knowing that CamStudio did some of the stuff RoboDemo did for free mainly export to streaming Flash , they released a newer version which fixed some bugs but most importantly, removed certain features. Gone was the ability to create SWFs, added was the requirement to register to use it, and over time, links to the various webpages that had CamStudio and its source code, became broken. However, I managed to find an earlier version complete with the related CamStudio video codec and the source code for both then put the website up so people could download them. It turns out there’s a bug which means you can’t see anything if you try watching them with Netscape or Firefox Internet Explorer works fine The next update 2.
