Camtasia: Screen Recording software License key Giveaway

If you come across a great video on YouTube or some similar sites, most of us do wonder that it may be too difficult to produce professional screen videos by average guys. But if you talk to some of the guys on how they created and uploaded the video content in the form of videos of PowerPoint presentations, webcams, software demos, screen captures use  an excellent tool called Camtasia from Techsmith.

It can be used to

  • Record PowerPoint presentations, websites, webcams, and software demos easily
  • Edit screencasts to perfection by cutting, splicing, adding transitions, and captions
  • Produce your video in many formats, or share to YouTube or Screencast.com

Developers Description

Camtasia has the right tools for creating professional screen videos without formal training.  With Camtasia, you can easily generate effective videos that help you train, teach, sell, and more.



With Camtasia Studio’s flexible recording options, you can choose to capture full screen, window or region. Add in music tracks, microphone, your computer’s audio, plus picture-in-picture with your video camera, and you’ve got a world-class screencast.


Once you have your content recorded, polish it up and turn it into a professional screencast.

Video Formats

It supports creation of videos in various formats:

* MP4/FLV/SWF – Flash player compatible
* M4V for iPad/iPod/iPhone/iTunes
* AVI for CD/DVD/lossless export
* Silverlight-compatible WMV
* MOV for QuickTime
* RM – RealMedia
* Animated GIF
* MP3 – Audio only

Full list of features in detail can be found here.

The best thing about this app is its too simple to use if you have used any video authoring tool before. If you are trying this tool for first time without even creating any video using a similar tool, then it may seem confusing to you. The reason I say that it may confuse you is because it got loads of features and options to create a professional quality Video. Unless you know about majority of these features slowly, it will be difficult for you to create great videos. But till now, I found this to be the simplest video creation tool among all the tools that I have ever used.

The best part:- It has got loads of tutorials for everything that is possible using this tool. If you want to create good professional Video, you can learn it from Camtasia Learning Center.

    Thank you for this giveaway.

  • Camtasia Studio is a relatively inexpensive and yet very powerful tool for creating any kind of demonstration presentations and training.

    The program allows you to capture the content of what is happening on your desktop(or part thereof) with voice-over to your video. The captured material can then freelyedit, enrich the so-called hints. balloon, or add text information. Thus prepared, the material can be easily published in multiple formats: AVI, MP4, Macromedia Flash(SWF), Windows Media (WMV), QuickTime (MOV), RealMedia (RM), Animated GIF, as well as executable file (EXE) .

    A great advantage of the program, despite an English interface, it is very easy to use.

    Sorry, I use Google Translate.https://plus.google.com/100782678717728154109/posts/H3mhR5PG2pshttp://www.facebook.com/reviewsantivirus/posts/169475153149899https://twitter.com/#!/ReviewsAntiviru/status/143058462144864256

    Camtasia is highly cooperative in regards of making video presentations in which powerpoint and dias are used for instruction. I used it frequently when in College, but when I left I could no longer use the facility. Miss it a lot and would love to win a license. But even if I don’t, thanks for this giveaway.

  • Joe Novack

    Very good software to record what happens on the screen. Ideal for creating high-quality video with instructional videos. Ideally suited to my YouTube channel with tips for graphics programs. Thank you for the contest and good luck to all. http://twitter.com/#!/tzpc/status/143106109559934976 http://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=226887704048987&id=100001832763969

  • Pier

    A key of Camtasia 7?!
    Yes, count me in too!

  • BlogWurm

    To show my needs in some rhyme,
    just follow the line.

    TechSmith’s Camtasia is in this sector the stand of the art,
    so i’ll take in this contest part.

    With this software tutorials can easily spread wide,
    and you have only to follow this simple guide:

    1 Your raw material has to be recorded
    and then you have to get it sorted.

    2 Edit your screencast until it’s all right,
    to give your audience delight.

    3 Now it’s time to publish your final cut with ease
    here you have many different output file formats, just choose one of these.

    After that you can upload your screencast on youtube with only some clicks,
    and this will hopefully get you many hits.

    Many helpful functions during this process will support you,
    to get you easily through.

    The only minus for private home use is the price,
    you give it for free in this contest to my surprize.

    So I hope to win,
    and this is like in france said my “FIN”.

    Thanks Avinash Kumar and TechSmith for this giveaway.

  • Ken Kirby

    Please add me to the list of potential winners.  The timing could not be better for me.  My church just received a new gift: an old but excellent quality Sony ENG type camera.  I could really use the software to produce movies for our website and DVDs. Otherwise I will have to rely on any free products out there.  I know…. so sad, new camera, but no software… count your blessings.  I am, but I have used free software before and as I recall it took anywhere from 3 to 4 different programs to achieve a good end result.  So, again, blessings to whoever wins it, but I admit that I hope it is me! Thanks for the opportunity, and God bless you.
