Camtasia Studio is a Screen Recording & Video Editing Software
TechSmith Corporation has released the latest version of Camtasia studio. This is one of the most popular screen casting software that is compatible to both the window and Mac platforms. For the window users, they will notice that there are some additional features on this new Camtasia studio. It has made it easier for window users to edit and produce screen cast and more presentation videos. However, for those who have been using the older Camtasia version they will notice that the new Camtasia studio has been revamped its UI.
They have changed from the normal Classic Xp blue design, to a more advanced black glass like design, which is also non-transparent interface. They have also replaced the vertical task bar with a tabbed horizontal bar, this has made it simple for one to access the different editing tools ,however you cannot use the hide icon while you are on this area.
After you have created the screen cast, you will note that there are a number of elements that are regular in each video. For example, on the intros, the video music background, the video title clips, watermarks, conversion, just to mention but a few. These icons may remain the same on each video.
The Camtasia studio has added an incredible feature known as libraries. This application enables you to arrange all these common essentials and store in one place where you can be able to retrieve them later. It is also possible for you to use the Camtasia studio Libraries, to bookmark all your regularly used alteration, any call outs, the video title designs, among many others applications. They have made it possible for one to access these icons on the next screen cast movie.
However, one of the most important features of the Camtasia studio is the version 7.0 “cursor” effects. For instance, while one is editing a screen cast, one has the option of hiding the mouse cursor from the ultimate video. Alternatively, if the cursor is hardly noticeable, one can take the opportunity to enlarge the pointer using simple steps .This is one of the amazing features that you will enjoy; however, it has some erratic cursor jumps even if the other video effects are turned off.
Just like cursor, the Camtasia Studio has the ability to automatically capture the keyboard strokes, which you edited while you were screening recording, and it makes it possible for these keystrokes to be displayed on the video, same as the text title. While using the earlier versions one was only able to display the keyboard stroke manually.
Using the Camtasia Studio, you can be able to produce and upload screen cast videos on the internet YouTube website just by clicking. The only thing that you are supposed to do is to record the screen cast, and install your Google Account identification, and then you can use the Camtasia studio to upload the videos. The videos are uploaded using the 720p HD format. You should ensure that your record has 1280×720 (HD) in dimension.
However, there are areas that the camtasia studio 7 needs some upgrading. For example, on the built-in title editor icon, it looks more ordinary, as it provides no support for rollovers and final credits. However, you can use the Windows Live Movie Maker, and then transfer the video to Camtasia Studio.
