About the Topic

---------------------------------------

Camtasia (formerlyCamtasia Studio) is a software suite, created and published byTechSmith, for creating video tutorials and presentations directly viascreencast, or via a direct recording plug-in toMicrosoft PowerPoint. The screen area to be recorded can be chosen freely, and audio or other multimedia recordings may be recorded at the same time or added separately from any other source and integrated in the Camtasia component of the product. Both versions of Camtasia started as enhanced screen capture programs and have evolved to integrate screen capture and post-processing tools targeted at the educational and information multimedia development marketplace.

Camtasia consists of two major components:

  • Camtasia Recorder - a separate tool for capturing screen audio and video

  • Camtasia editor - the component for which the entire product is named, which is now a multimedia authoring tool with the industry standard "timeline" interface for managing multiple clips in a stacked track form plus enhancements summarized below.

Some of the Editing Features:


1.Brand New Assets: Camtasia comes with a collection of brand new video assets, including customizable intros, outros, and lower thirds. Or get full access to over 500,000 royalty-free stock assets with a TechSmith Assets subscription.


2.Theming: Create multiple themes to keep your various company or personal styles organized and ready to use. Easily create, save, and apply themes with custom color and font preferences.


3.Performance Improvements: The Camtasia editor has been refined to provide a smoother experience all around. Improved preview playback now gives you more stability with greater responsiveness during editing.

6.Media: Import images, audio, and video up to 4K resolution.


7.Multi-track Timeline: Build your videos quickly with multiple tracks for images, video, text, and audio.


8.Annotations: Arrows, callouts, shapes, and more help you get your point across.


9.Transitions: Add an intro/outro to the beginning or end of a clip, image, shape, or text.


10.Animations: Zoom, pan, or create your own custom motion effects.


11.Voice Narration: A great way to add context to what you're showing.

13.Visual Effects: Adjust colors, add a drop shadow, change the clip speed, and more.


14.Interactivity: Add quizzes to see who is watching your videos, and how much they've viewed.
