Customer Reviews

Nice editing\screencasting tool

I have produced several videos with the latest version of Camtasia 3. The workflow as you move your story board forward into a finished product are more “Final Cut\iMovie”-esque than prior versions of the program. This ends up being a good thing as I feel like I am working with a fuller featured video production tool.

On the downside crashes still happen. Disruptive yes, but can be overcome with a smart regime of saving work frequently and at specific points in the workflow which often coincide with the crashes.

Can’t Download it

Paid $199 and it will not download. This is extremely frustrating. I should have just bought it directly from Techsmith I suppose, but I like to do everyting through the Apple store so I can track my application purchases. But it is very frustrating becuase I believe they have something governing the downloads to only one machine, but I need it on my laptop and desktop. SO FRUSTRATING. Will not download onto the desktop even though I just deleted it off my laptop.

Excellent Editing Tool

Great tool to get the job done for certain videos. If you want to enable system audio, you must download from their website which was release back in October 2012. It would make more sense to include in the next update or with the purchase of the software!
