Edit and personalize your videos with this simple but powerful program

By Daren Garius

On Thursday, September 18, 2014

I was asked to prepare a video tutorial once and I was searching for a program that I can use. I chanced upon Camtasia Studio and it made my work easier. It has a lot of helpful features that will make your videos beautiful and presentable. I particularly use the crop tool most of the time to specify and highlight the areas I want to utilize. I can record a presentation or the screen of my computer. I also tried the transition features, quizzing and other effects and the final video was great. There is also the remove a color function which is similar to the green screen though I haven't tried it yet but it can definitely be useful in future projects. The best thing about this application is that after finishing the video, you can quickly share in on sites like Youtube and even in Google Drive. Even novice users will be able to appreciate this program. Creating high quality videos even for non-professionals is now possible with Camtasia Studio.

Pros

  • Intuitive interface with many features
  • Easily share your videos online

Cons

  • May occasionally encounter crashing issues

A powerful and versatile screen capturing, video creation and presentation software

By Kyle Daniels

On Thursday, September 11, 2014

Working with software tutorials and other online tutorial software, I have always relied on a still-image based presentation methodology. The reason for this is simply because there are much more presentation software that use still-images, as compared to applications that use video-based presentation software. And the fact that video-based presentations are simply much more tedious to work on than still images.

Well, that was before I tried Camtasia Studio. This versatile software application lets you record and capture screenshots of your computer screen. You can then take the recordings and create professional-looking videos, perfect for making tutorials or step-by-step how-tos. Downloading and trying out the software, I discovered that I could capture my entire screen or just a part of it. I could also remove parts of a video recording as I wish, as well as remove parts of an actual video shot. Merging video clips is easy with video stitching, which permitted me to combine finalized video clips into a larger, more comprehensive video clip.

The new version also features the green screen feature, which allowed me to place a video clip within a green screen on the target video. This is great for final messages on a video presentation. All in all, this is truly a great software application for online educators, presenters, marketing people and for those who just need to create a really professional-looking video.

Pros

  • Allows users to create presentations from video clips
  • You can also create presentations from screen shots
  • This software is perfect for making online and live presentations
  • New green screen feature lets you put yourself inside the target video

Cons

  • Software is prone to crashing on an occasional basis

Review

Camtasia Studio is a recording tool developed by Techsmith which will help you to create elaborated videos. With this software you will be able to record your screen activity, use its picture-in-picture functions and then edit the content or include some elements such as animated backgrounds, graphics or transitions. This is a good way to create your own videos if you don’t have time to waste learning to use much more complex applications such as Adobe Premiere or Final Cut. You can capture webpages, software demos, video tutorials, PowerPoint slides and more.

This version offers some new tools and improvements, such as Quizzing. This tool allows the user to add interactive quizzes to the clip. You just have to select the questions and the possible answers and then pick the correct one. You can also configure it to show the score or let the viewers see the answers after submitting.

How to use

This software works in a pretty simple way. Once you download and install it, you just have to follow some simple steps in order to get your clip done. First, you will see the main interface: a timeline, a content browser and the preview zone, all of them are standard for this kind of programs. If you need to record your screen firstly, you can click the button at the top of the content browser or choose tools and then “record”. There are some settings for recording; you are free to capture the whole frame or you can choose a specific area to be shown. For instance, you can cut out the taskbar if it is irrelevant for your video. Besides, you can enable some inputs to be recorded, such as your webcam or your microphone, so you can narrate the video.

When you are happy with your recording, you have some options: you can produce it immediately and convert the clip into a shareable format or you can save and edit it with the video editor. This option will turn your video into a camrec. file and the video editor will show the imported clip added to the timeline. Now you can enhance your video in several ways. You will be able to add a title before it starts or a callout over the scene you desire. You will find loads of them in the Library, which contains some callouts and titles ordered by theme. Moreover, you can customize your callouts by selecting the interior text and some properties such as fade in / out or the font for your text. You can also apply zoom or pan through your videos selecting the scale.

Besides, you can enable the SmartFocus, a tool that automatically applies zoom to areas in which there is high activity. It may sound a bit messy, but the tool works accurately. If you imported a video which you haven’t recorded, you can now add voice narration. This tool has few options, but works fine; you can disable your speakers during the process to avoid unwanted sounds and regulate the volume of the microphone. Once you have finished experimenting, you can save and export you creation by converting it to MP4, WMV, MOV, etc. or you can share it uploading the video directly to YouTube or Screencast.com, depending on your needs.
