Description:

Camtasia is a tool that will let you record on-screen activity, as well as edit and enhance it, and share it in high-quality to viewers anywhere. Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac are software suites, created and published by TechSmith, for creating video tutorials and presentations directly via screencast, or via a direct recording plug-in to Microsoft PowerPoint. The screen area to be recorded can be chosen freely, and audio or other multimedia recordings may be recorded at the same time or added separately from any other source and integrated in the Camtasia Studio component of the product. Both versions of Camtasia started as enhanced screen capture programs and have evolved to integrate screen capture and post processing tools targeted at the educational and information multimedia development marketplace. Camtasia Studio v8 for Microsoft Windows consists of two major components: Camtasia Recorder - a separate tool for capturing screen audio and video. Camtasia Studio editor - the component for which the entire product is named, which is now a multimedia authoring tool with the industry standard "timeline" interface for managing multiple clips in a stacked track form plus enhancements summarized below.
