Editors' review

Camtasia Studio gives you the tools to record your computer screen and then turn those recordings into professional-grade videos. And once you've edited and polished your creation, you can share it directly from the app to YouTube, Google Drive, and Screencast.com.

Pros

Smooth functioning: Camtasia provides a lot of nice features in a fluid interface that makes creating screen capture videos and processing them a breeze. You can set the program to record either the screen or a PowerPoint presentation. You can also choose to record your entire screen or only a portion of it that you preset before recording begins. The recordings, themselves, are clear and crisp, providing you with an excellent framework on which to put all the finishing touches and effects you want.

Finishing tools: Once you have your screen capture recording the way you want it, you can utilize the various tools included in the program to make your video complete. These include multiple Transition Options, Voice Narration, a Zoom and Pan effect, Cursor Effects, Captions, Quizzing, and more. You can also use built-in tools to enhance and improve the audio quality of your voice recording.

Cons

Crashing and errors: This program did crash once during testing. We also periodically received an error message stating that the program couldn't initiate recording for an unknown reason. But we were always able to remedy these situations by closing the app and then opening it again to start fresh.

Bottom Line

Camtasia Studio is a comprehensive program for creating instructional or other videos using screen capture. The interface is accessible to all users at all levels, from novice on up, and the finished product you can create with this app will have a truly professional feel. You can test out Camtasia Studio for free for 30 days. After that the full purchase price is $299.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Camtasia Studio 8.4.2.1768.
