Overall rating

Benefits:

The User interface is simple and required tools placed on the left side tab. Audio editing job done easy by audio effects option have preloaded option like noise removal, volume levelling, fade in, fade out and clip speed. The preloaded effects made editing job quick which are loaded in media, annotations, transitions, behaviours, animations, cursor effects, voice narrations and audio effects. The User can lock the track and make hide or visible of the particular track.

Drawbacks:

Importing of the media file is not quick. Launching of the software take more time to open the software. Functions of the software are not quick responsive.

Overall rating

Benefits:

It easy to get started recording and editing your videos. I can record my screen and myself at the same time without having to use extra equipment. It's great.

Drawbacks:

Some of the prebuilt templates are a little "cheesy" and I personally wouldn't use them. Also, like any software, it can take a little getting used to.

In sum:

Overall, I've had a great experience with Camtasia. I've used it for a few years now and really don't need anything else to create the videos I need for customers and our support teams.

«A very good video editor»

Usability

Overall rating

Benefits:

It's easy to use, robust, and with nice features. It also offers different formats to export. Quality delivery is great. You can export to your computer and other apps such as Youtube, Vimeo and other social media apps. You can capture your PC screen and record voice narration.

Drawbacks:

It's kind of heavy to load and as other video editors needs a lot of resources of your PC. Does not offer other type of animations like cartoons or illustrations that other video editors offer nowadays

In sum:

I like it and I use it daily and like it. It's one of my favorite video editors

Overall rating

Benefits:

The visual interface is (in our opinion) the best feature. Techsmith keeps adding more features that make it eas(ier) to produce professional-quality videos for my clients in a short amount of time. I especially enjoy the ability to create Client Libraries (frequently used tools, fonts, effects, music, assets, etc.) as this helps build consistence between clients & projects.

Drawbacks:

Transitions are a bit frustrating for my types of projects. They have added many new effects and transitions to their latest release (which are all very cool). My clients prefer the subtle and non-flashy transitions and besides the fade and a few others, there are few to really choose from that help the video stand out (without really standing out :).

In sum:

I really enjoy the software and have for YEARS. I am always recommending Camtasia to my clients who want to do little DIY video projects - and have converted them to users/followers as well. Tech support is always very helpful and the tutorial videos they provide - along with live webinars - are very helpful.

«Camtasia Review»

Overall rating

Benefits:

Camtasia is a great software for creating eLearning presentations and videos. It's also an ways software to use for those who are not tech savvy. The software is easy to learn and allows you to quickly get started creating eLearning projects. I like that you can add and format callouts as well as add animations and control timing and execution of the animation.

Drawbacks:

It's not as feature rich as Adobe Captivate, but still allows you to create good content. Sometimes Camtasia does not work well, when the project file gets too large or when your working on a project file on a network drive, instead of your local computer hard drive.

In sum:

Camtasia is a joy to use to develop eLearning content. You can make it as interactive as you want with quizzes or other elements or keep it simple and use it to publish PowerPoint presentations.

Benefits:

Camtasia has a wonderful collection of readily available tutorial video for the newbies which is welcoming and very comfortable to work with, the ease in the drag and drop capabilities is second to none. It's library, annotations and transitions, another section of awesomeness.

Drawbacks:

Well, the fact that it sometimes crashes which might make the software seem heavy but it's the best I've used and seen so far for its amazing features and one I can gladly recommend, to avoid problems just get a computer with a high capacity and you're good to go!

In sum:

In documentation creation, Camtasia helps to create them in a more efficient professional way, lucid with good intros scenes library, the cut and trim pieces of video clips is simple amazing!

Benefits:

I literally started using Camtasia after watching a couple of their included demonstration videos. Very easy user interface! Not an overly complex interface. Not THAT many buttons and options to do video(very good thing)

Drawbacks:

There is very little I don't like about this video creation software.

In sum:

I have been able to create, quite easily, help videos that we have attached to our help system. Very easy to use, the ramp up to creating the videos is easy - simply watch there example videos. If you join their mailing list, they always send links to short, concise, how-to type videos.

Overall rating

Benefits:

Camtasia is a video editing and creating software. I used this software overall in 3 years. This is a really helpful software for simple editing work. The feature of this software are very easy to use. So, I recommended my all friend and colleague to use this software. There are some easy tools and option, anyone can learn about this software in one or tow day. The rendering file of this software is small but the video quality is very good. that's why it's my favourite software.

Drawbacks:

There are no special effect and fx tools. after saving the video file, that folder contains too many files.and also one thing is, you can't make any high quality petty or slide video with this.

In sum:

I use Camtasia for my camera video editing. I cut unused thing, add some title and customise the sound. sometimes I edit my whiteboard video with this, and I sell those video to my buyer.

«Great Software But Can Be a Little Clunky»

Overall rating

Benefits:

I used Camtasia for years to create online training programs in my corporate training job. It does a great job of recording the screen and has some good editing features. It's best suited for training and educational videos. The PowerPoint import and the quiz features are great! If you are trying to do YouTube or something that is full video, you may want to look elsewhere for the price.

Drawbacks:

At times I found it to be a little bit clunky and difficult to get it to do exactly what I needed. I do have experience with professional video editing software, and this is MUCH more simplistic. So that may have been a good part of my frustration.

In sum:

Overall this is a great software as long as you are using it for the right purpose and outcomes.
