Loving Camtasia. The UI feels a bit like a toy, but in the end it offers a lot of features.

Its like they are forcing you to pay 249.00 for something I already paid for, by slipping in an so called update. that makes past versions useless. You can't go back to the old version so you kinda stuck

Really like this software. I find it simple to use and it is packed full of features. It does take a little time to master some of the tools but the help guide and tutorials are good as is their customer support. Very solid app. Recommend.

After using trial for 2 weeks I went back to Screenflow.. Price is twice as much as Screenflow... and yet Camtasia's extra features seem a bit cartooney or amateur-ish to me... I don't create real fancy stuff and any special things I need in a video I can create in Photoshop and bring it into these apps. I prefer Screenflow's simplicity and user interface. I do wish "Actions" could be drag and drop like Camtasia effects. Both good apps but price for Camtasia is way too high.

I like Camtasia.

It's great for making screencasts, short AV presentations and has a decent subtitles function, animations and keystroke overlays.

What it lacks is a decent UI for the effects. They have a panel over on the right-hand side of the interface, but it's really designed for the convenience of the developer rather than the user. Absolutely hideous to use. Sure, you can get your jobs done with it, but it feels ugly while you do it.

That said, overall this is a very neat and tidy app with an easy learning curve for anyone looking to edit reasonably basic screencast / short videos.

great editor, with a blot of freedom to quickly and effectively improve and edit videos. few annoying things. 1) while editting, the cursor snaps to the left edge and then stays there matter how much you drag it somewhere else. 2) lack of compability for some video formats. 3) crash at the end of the video generating.

Hi. I still missing the possibility to have the same functionality like the Win-Version. For example the feature of SCORM export. It would be an essential function for creating WBT modules for learning content management systems (LCMS). Please add this feature to Camtasia for Mac and I will buy it immediately :-) Please look also this thread in the Camtasia forum of TechSmith: https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/how_can_i_save_a_video_as_a_scorm_file_using_camtasia_for_mac?utm_source=notification&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=new_comment&utm_content=reply_button&reply%5Bid%5D=14660816#reply_14660816

This program gave me everything that I bought it for and more. Maybe I think it gave me more because I didn't read the entire description :P Records internal sounds as well as your microphone. NO MORE THIRD PARTY PLUGINS! Easy to edit... I learned how to use it in one day.

I don't know what's up with this dev: I open an account, and my password doesn't work immediately afterwards, so I click on the link that's provided, and the promised e-mail never arrives??? I click on Help, Little Snitch asks permission to connect, I OK it, and I get nothing but blank pages...numerous tries??? The demo is presented as if its full-featured, but some features are greyed-out in my menu bar??? I try to find out why deleting all but 20 secs of a 40 minute file leaves me with a file that plays only my segment but is equal in size to the original, and I run into my Help issue??? Huh???

Not bad software if it actually would work. Unfortunately there is a bug on the Mac will it will not play any recordings if you have a headset or other audio device connected via USB. This pretty much renders the software useless. This bug exists for over a year and has not been fixed.

It indeed very easy to use, i could do the common edit without user manual. I think it is suitable for the newbie in video edit, like me. Just cost too much.

Anything but great, it has just brought me to tears so many times when it just stopped working in the mid of the process w/o saving any of the changes I've made to the video and w/o offering to recover. if this is what you guys suggest we should be all using for video editing, life is just sad..

I was looking for a screen recording tool and the opportunity of getting Camtasia in a bundle I was interested in arised... It's not the most intuitive software, really. But it's packed with features. It's not lightweight. But it's powerful. It's certainly not the best, but I like it.

I have license for ScreenFlow, I showU HD and Camtasia as I do a lot of tutorials... In the past my preferred were 1 ScreenFlow 2 Camtasia and then IShowU HD. Now it is Camtasia my first choice...much more intuitive in editing for my taste. Techsmith did a very good job. The upgrade price is a bit high for a non pro I think... Have a try. Thanks

After using ScreenFlow for the last year, I was forced by circumstances beyond my control to create a video using Camtasia. It was like going back to the dark ages. Very inflexible and non-intuitive. I'd recommend ScreenFlow over Camtasia any day.

I just downloaded what is suppose to be version 1.2.2. It shows that it is actually v 1.2. I have a MacPro Quad-Core using Mac OS 10.6.8 with 14 GB of memory and tons of disk space. I am using a Logitech Webcam Pro 9000. 1. The audio lags annoyingly behind the video. 2. There are spots in the clip that have very loud clicks. 3. There are areas of the clip where the audio is totally incomprehensible! I am sorry but I will stick with ScreenFlow v 1.2.9 by Telestream.Inc which has the same features but works perfectly!

I really like Camtasia. It is a joy to use. Very simple to understand and its exporting tools are great. However, don't ever try to get a refund from them. I bought a second copy by mistake. I know that is stupid but it happened. I have emailed them via their webpage and via my account and no money has ever been returned nor have I gotten a useful reply. It might be interpreted by some that they are in severe financial trouble if they use these tactics to protect their cash flow. I don't know and won't comment. Just be very careful. Other than that, I like it.

Camtasia is wonderful solution for screencasts recording: it's simple, it is feature-rich and it supports captioning, audio embedding and visual effects (for instance, fades). I checked a lot of applications of same kind and neither was able build the screencast with some text in it. Some crashed, other failed to save the video, some had heavy trial limits... And Camtasia did the job. However, I had some problems with minor glitches - app's preview isn't 100% accurate and I have spent some time fixing the project to get the proper video, but I can deal with this. This app worth it's money, really.

I've been to the buying page a few times. My main concern is that camtasia for mac upgrade policy is kind of too expensive. Suppose there is a "bug fix" and you don't buy their ongoing upgrade pack for the year. You then have to pay for something you bought with a "manufacturing problem" in the first place. Need tothink a bit before acceptimg this blindly....

Wow, the tension is thick here... I can't wait to hear how this gets reviewed. Could be a game changer, and will certainly give ScreenFlow a run for its money... Competition is *always* good, for the consumer anyway!
