Boy did that register with me. First - video editing software is for lack of a better word "peculiar" it seems you have two choices A) Entry level programs for home video which are time consuming and confusing and sell between $40 - $100. B) The higher end get's you into programs like Corel's Elements and the lower end of the Sony Vegas line.
Or you can take the jump to programs like Final Cut if you're on a Mac and have both the dollars and time to commit - not for me. I've tried many of them over the years and still find myself going back to Windows Movie Maker if only for the ease of use which trumped the long rendering and upload times of more sophisticated and costly programs.
Adding to my seemingly never ending search for a feature rich software program with a learning curve that didn't require you to have a degree in film production - These would include but are not limited to: Sony Vegas (different versions including 7 and 11) HitFilm, VideoPad, Moavi and others. Hitfilm 2 at the same price point as Camtasia isn't difficult to learn, it has some fancy Hollywood quality effects and if you're into green screen (Chroma key) it's a very decent product put out by NCH Software. One of the problems is support. It's entirely fee based from the get go.
With a selection of "premium" packages to buy and none of them are built around value for the buck.Read more ›
The best thing I can say about the screen capture on Camtasia Studio is that it just works, brilliantly. The images are sharp and the sound is synchronized (two things the free stuff wouldn't do).
Camtasia does way more than just screen capture. There are a lot of features and I have only tried a few. There are video tutorials on their web site that quickly show you how to do everything. When you click on help within Camtasia it takes you to those videos.
Right now Camtasia Studio 8 does not have support for green screen so I still have to use Pinnacle. For this reason I have not explored fully the many features of Camtasia. TechSmith is working on a green screen upgrade to 8 so if you want green screen you should check to see if it has come out yet.
The features that I have used are very nice, are easy to learn, and make the end result very professional looking. If I lost the screen capture I would still want Camtasia for the extra features that it has (that Pinnacle does not have).
Edit 16 July 2013 - Camtasia Studio now has a free upgrade (8.1.1) that allows you to do green screen. The feature is called "remove a color" and it works better than the green screen feature in Pinnacle Studio 12 so I now do all my green screen stuff using Camtasia. Unfortunately Camtasia still does not import .mts files (what your HD camcorder makes) so you need some other program to convert the .mts file into something Camtasia will load.Read more ›
* ability to add multiple/more tracks to the timeline (I think unlimited)
* more flexibility in tweaking effects
* better editing control than the last ones
* better screen casting frame rates - looks much smoother
* easier to edit the footage making cuts and joins
* better way to overlap transitions
* better control all round
* bigger library of tools (some people use these)
* faster operations & faster with the rendering (important for us)
* the inability to make the tracks on the timeline THINNER in height. Probably not a big issue for most, but when you have lots of tracks in other programs you can adjust the width. Not so in this. Sometimes seems a little clunky.
* needs slightly better text editing options (including being able to see the text at normal size in the text window and only have the preview show the changes, as it is a nightmare editing large text when you cannot see it!)
* cutting of individual tracks could be made a little easier
We've been using this software over the last months in the workplace and I have to say that making a screencast with Camtasia is so much easier and faster now. The previous version was a great concept, but had so many limitations that sometimes we'd use have to use full pro AV editing software to edit the footage quickly and then use Camtasia to simply add effects and spit it out.
It seems to be able to handle itself better and is faster at rendering. I am liking this new version a lot.Read more ›
