Review

Thousands of people around the world use Camtasia Studio to create videos that train, teach, sell, and entertain. It's the easiest way to demonstrate a process, product, business service or idea by video screencasting.

Camtasia’s Studio is designed to be as intuitive as possible, so users with limited technical knowledge can easily create highly professional videos.

You can record exactly what they see on your computer screen, including all visual elements, from mouse movements to data entry, with the option to add audio, such as a music track or a voice over, as well as web cam video. This ‘screencast’ can then be shared across all video tubes including iPhone.

Recording: The flexible recording options give you the choice to capture full screen, window or region. You can also add in music tracks, microphone, your computer's audio plus picture-in-picture with your video camera.

PowerPoint plug-in: The toolbar inside PowerPoint makes it easy to record your presentations, either live or from your desk with one click. This intelligent technology also keeps track of where the action happens during your recording and zooms in on areas you need to highlight.

Once you have your content recorded, polish it up and turn it into a professional screencast with features such as call outs to focus the viewer’s attention, cursor effects to help them follow the action, transitions to walk your audience through your content easily with title clips that introduce or divide your video, and captions that displays text.

The demo library is stocked with professionally-designed assets you can drag-and-drop into your video. You can then upload various video formats to YouTube. Take a look at  techsmith.com/camtasia.asp.

For novices the online help centre gives you most of what you need to get cracking with casting videos. A good tip is to take some time to browse through all the tutorials from the top and work your way down. This way when you step into the Camtasia Studio you are fully armed to produce professional looking videos.

When I started doing my online courses, I found the play head and the editing tracks to be very scary but I soon got used to them and before long I was totally at home with them hovering around ‘my’ studio.

I also love the clip bin and how easy it is so save clips on the timeline into the library for future use.

Have a play with the sequences and other items in the library they certainly finish a video production top notch! Take a look at my online courses and at our iHubbub introduction videos to see some of these sequences in action.

And don't be sheepish to get in touch with the Techsmith Support crew - a great bunch of guys, sweet and kind and extremely helpful ... err ... maybe that's not the best rep for their 'studio-cred' so let's rephrase that with - darn' right helpful, that bunch o' guys!

The iHubbub review score below may seem right up there but from a first timers point of view, Camtasia Studio has been supersonic powerhouse for creating and producing our iHubbub video screencasts and  iHubbub's training courses, my own personal online training courses.

Any trainer without the latest version of Camtasia Studio needs their head read! Sorry, but its true. Probably the best  investment if you run courses and want to take them from offline to online and increase your chance of attendees to your courses.
