Since Camtasia caters to new and intermediate users, you won’t find a large selection of special effects. The ones it does have are still good and will fulfil most of your small projects’ needs. Make your clips spin or fade into view with the opacity and tilt animations. Add clarifying texts or subtitles to your video with the annotations tool. Each effect comes with customisable layouts like colors and density.
Tap the plus button or a caption box to keep viewers on the hook with descriptive and compelling text overlaid on your video and photos. The split screen, single caption, and title and text layouts all allow for text over your images. Don’t forget the voice narration feature, either—just click and hold the microphone button on each slide for vocals to accompany that slide.
Wasn't responsing when editing, constant freezing and crashing. Weakly made version update. Won't let add mp3s into library, mp3 codec & flac codec missing. Weakly made program (editing program is not supposed to freeze everytime after editing timeline. Timeline is not updating real time while editing. HD presets are not really HD and you have to make your own preset modifications. Program makers probably never heard of good quality. Won't allow making own moving text scripts. (After effects cc).

In Camtasia editor, multimedia objects of various formats can be imported into the clip library and arrange them in time order and stacked tracks using the timeline form of user controls. Overlays of various types may be added, including user-defined settings, such as when and how to display the cursor and pan-and-zoom effects such as the Ken Burns effect. Camtasia for Windows v8 and Camtasia for Mac v2 offer options to enhance sections of the recorded screen to draw attention via a cursor or drawn-in pointer to highlight section(s) of the screen or to better illustrate the actions of the presenter on the screen. Another feature is the ability to save media clips within the library tab, keeping a user from having to repeatedly import commonly-used media clips/files.

Add as many songs as you want onto your videos, including your video clips that already contain audio. You can adjust the audio volume in your video clips, which will automatically adjust the volume of the overlay music for the perfect combination. You can also completely silence your music while your video clips play so that you can hear the audio clearly without any musical accompaniment.


PC World noted that "Camtasia has evolved from being the go-to program for software demonstrators to a full-featured education/information video tool" from this 4 1/2 star review. An earlier 2005 review is still relevant, which states that, though "powerful," Camtasia can be "a little overwhelming at the start" to new users, though the learning curve is easily manageable.[5][6][7]
In terms of usability, Camtasia should be among the top choices due to how beginner-friendly it is. But, also due to its simplicity, not too many professional creators will find Camtasia Studio appealing. If you’re only starting to learn the basics of video editing, this app is perfect for that. It’s got a nice interface, intuitive controls, and useful tutorials. Those are everything you need for an easy beginning. 

With the closure of YouTube Video Editor and Stupeflix Studio, users are turning to other online video editing websites. Websites that feature online video editing capabilities are not as feature-rich as video editing software that you install on your computer, but they make it possible for you to do quick and simple edits right on the website without having to buy and install software of your own.

After capturing a presentation in the Camtasia Recorder, the Camtasia component can be used to modify audio and video displayed as tracks by using the timeline control and object library interface with an integrated preview window. The image in the infobox to the right is a screen capture of the timeline interface. In addition, Camtasia allows automatic captions (speech-to-text), voice overlay for the presenter or editor, as well as the ability to add sound effects in many different formats, including music formats into the clip bin and arrange anywhere on the timeline.
Camtasia empowers you to make amazing videos--even if you've never made one before. Record a video of your screen or bring in your own video footage. Then, use Camtasia's drag-and-drop editor to easily create remarkable videos you can share with anyone. Keep your audience engaged by adding eye-catching animations, music, and captions in record time. With Camtasia, you'll be able to produce stunning videos without being a professional video editor.
