Developers Description

Always more than a simple screen recorder, Camtasia Studio will help you generate sophisticated, effective screen-casts — faster, easier, and with more consistency.



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.


The final step in creating a screencast is sharing it with your audience – and Camtasia Studio makes that a snap. Produce to a variety of 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


As most of my readers know, I rarely create Videos and hence I haven’t tested it as extensively as Snagit. Still with whatever time I have went through using it, I found it quite easy to work with. Obviously, there is a learning curve associated with any tool and same applies here. As it can create and edit your Videos quite effectively like adding sound thru Mic or editing existing videos to create new one, you may find it hard initially if you never used any video editing software.

But if you want to create a simple video, you do that straight away even on your first day. If you want to create good professional Video, you can learn it from Camtasia Learning Center.
