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.

"Crashes, crashes and more crashes."

November 20, 2014

 |  Version: Camtasia Studio 8.4.4.1859

Pros

-Looks very good
-Works on some computers
-Auto-recover feature

Cons

-Crashes all the time
-Can't work with big files
-Too slow
-Doesn't work on most computers
-Terrible-looking results
-Almost never renders anything big correctly
-Horrid screen recorder [Bad sound quality, absolutely no syncing, and laggy footage]
-Demo only lasts a month
-Slows down and crashes when doing simple tasks like raising audio volume
-Costs $300!!!!

Summary

Don't get this. It's a bad experience with horrid results. It, also, only works when you're doing astonishingly simple tasks with the program. I have a great Windows 8, 1 TB memory, 6 GB ram, AMD Graphics Card Computer and this almost never works well on it.
