Import options & compatibility

Camtasia is a successful combination of recorder and editor. Videos and audio files can be imported into the video editing software in a variety of ways. Moreover, users can record and import their own desktops, audio tracks, and PowerPoint presentations. Camtasia supports all major video formats, including AVI, MOV, WMA, MPG, MTS, MPEG, CAMREC, M2TS, and SWF. It can also be used to run and edit high-qualityHD and 4K videos. In addition, users can also import all major image formats into the software.

 

Camtasia Studio can be used to edit all imported data and make individual changes. A PowerPoint add-in makes it possible to directly record video using the software. Recorded or edited videos are saved as CAMREC files, Camtasia’s proprietary format. This is actually a container format that holds an AVI file along with additional information. The proprietary file format includes the original raw footage, and can later be modified using the video editing software.

Video editing

Camtasia’s video editor features an interface that’s clearly arranged and tidy-looking, and most people will find it to be intuitive. It should only take a few minutes for users to find their bearings. All features and control elements are available in a number of languages, and most of them are self-explanatory. With just a few clicks, beginners will be able to create their own clips, video tutorials, and sophisticated presentations.

The editor makes it easy to use the mouse to arrange all elements on the digital canvas. In no time, users can fill up the timeline with a wide variety of animations, different effects, and music. Recorded and imported videos can be cut, enhanced, or pieced together. The Crop feature allows users to change the shape and size of specific images, and they can use thegreen-screen feature to play the recordings in front of whatever background they like. Camtasia Studio is distinguished by its outstanding stability features and quick rendering capabilities, even with high-resolution videos in UHD.

Effects[

Camtasia features an impressively large array of different effects, animations, transitions, and blends. Users also have access to various colors and sounds. The options available allow users to individually modify recorded or imported clips and make significant enhancements. The easy-to-use video editor gives users access to animated backgrounds, background music, numerous icons, and motion graphics. All elements can be used freely and even uploaded on YouTube. Of course, buyers can also use their own images.

An excellent tool for making training videos are Camtasia’s cursor effects. These allow the user to specifically highlight the mouse pointer with a spotlight effect of a colored circle so it’s easier to follow in the finished video. The Pan & Zoom feature can be used to enlarge specific areas in an image or video, and Call-outs allow objects to be embedded into videos that are already recorded. Camtasia’s video editor also allows users to add text to their clips. There are even larger fill-in-the-blank and multiple choice quizzesto choose from.

Export options

Users can either create their own export settings in Camtasia Studio or opt to use the Production Wizard. They’re able to choose from the formats AVI, WMV, MP3, Flash, QuickTime, and M4V, among others. The Production Wizard helps users publish their clips and offers a variety of other options. Videos can be saved in the right format for iPhone, iPad, or iPod, burned onto a CD or DVD, or even be directly uploaded onto the Internet. If users choose to post videos to the Internet, the clip is uploaded directly onto the platforms Screencast or YouTube and published from there. The Production Wizard will then automatically adjust all the output parameters. The maximum resolution supported by the program is 4096 x 2160 pixels.The program’s MenuMaker feature allows a number of videos to be organized into a menu and selected from there.
