    "Great overall product"

    June 20, 2012  |   By ryork272


    Easy to use.
    Great quality capture.
    Editing features.
    Adding transitions.
    Ability to add audio after recording.


    There's a learning curve... Duh!!


    For those who give this product a negative review, my impulse is to defend Camtasia but I won't do that. I will assume they are being genuine, although I question their intensions and ability to review the training videos.

    Yes, there is a slight learning curve but its well worth the 1 hour to review the "how-to" videos. This product is very easy to use and learn. It has some great features:

    1. Pan-and-zoom: allows you to zoom in on parts of the video you want to emphasize.
    2. Audio: ability to edit the audio after recording.
    3. Adjustable resolution: easily create videos at the preferred resolution so that it shows up on all screens.
    4. Publish: publishing the vidoe to Youtube or your web site is a simple task.
    5. Transitions: built in transitions (transitioning from one section or to anther topic) are really cool.
    6. Creating a "table-of-contents" that link to parts of a video, for example a training video, is really a nice feature.

    I can go on and on. This is a great product. Sure $300 is not cheap but you get what you pay for.
