Import Media

Easily import HD video, photos, music, and more to create unique videos that stand out. Import existing videos you have for quick editing, images to enhance your videos, or your favorite song to make a presentation your own.

Create Videos with Professional Polish

Once you're done recording your screen or importing existing video, it's time to add some polish with Camtasia Studio's powerful, yet easy-to-use editing tools. Construct more engaging videos faster with multiple video and audio tracks. The ability to easily manipulate, overlay, and group objects helps you produce professional-looking videos, while encouraging you to use your creativity. Quickly arrange video, audio, images, callouts, animated content, and more on an unlimited number of tracks.

Media Asset Library

Intrigue your audience by adding a variety of pre-installed music tracks, callouts, buttons, banners, and animated backgrounds to your videos with drag-and-drop ease. Camtasia Studio’s wide selection of new callouts and media themes help your videos look more consistent and professional – while you look like a design genius.

Engage your viewers with Visual Effects

Make your videos pop with enticing visual effects. Insert cursor effects, apply shadows, colorize objects, or add a border to give your videos a polished look. Easily add transitions to keep your viewers intrigued, use Clip Speed to make your videos the perfect length, and hide sensitive information with the blur tool.

Animate Content

Captivate your viewers with animated content that helps guide them through your videos. Use animation to make a callout fly across your screen, an image bounce up and down, text scroll, and more. Camtasia Studio makes it easy to rotate, resize, and tilt content too.

Focus on what matters with SmartFocus

Call attention to the important details in your video automatically. TechSmith’s exclusive SmartFocus technology analyzes the position of your mouse cursor, which windows are active, when text is entered, and automatically predicts the best spots to zoom into on your video.

Assess understanding with Quizzing

Discover if your viewers are watching and learning from your content by adding quizzes to your videos. Quizzes can be taken on desktops, laptops, iPads, Android tablets, and most Android smart phones, and results are sent using SCORM reporting. You’ll receive daily email results that include an attached spreadsheet for easy review in Excel or other database programs.

Share your videos to anyone, anywhere.

Share high-quality, HD videos that your viewers can watch anytime, on nearly any device. The TechSmith Smart Player is intuitive and detects if your viewer’s device or browser supports Flash. If not, videos will playback using HTML5. It also makes interactive elements like hotspots – also known as hyperlinks, quizzes, table of contents, and closed captioning possible.

Produce the exact video you want.

Be confident that you’re choosing the right production setting for your videos with Camtasia Studio’s easy-to-use  production wizard. With simplified presets, you’ll be able to easily decide which production setting is best for the type of video you’ve created.
