Camtasia Review: the Video Editor for Replays

Camtasia is a Video Editor that caters to replays, demonstrations, how-to’s, and showcasing screen recordings. It’s a full-on NLE, but its built in assets lean more towards those use case scenarios. Sure, you could import just about any video and make any type of content you wanted – but Camtasia fills a certain market void that makes it more valuable that it may appear during a glance-over.

Camtasia’s User Interface

Camtasia has a UI that resembles most other desktop video editors, it’s only when you start to fiddle with the built-in Asset Library that you start to see the benefits of using Techsmith’s flagship program. Next to the usual tools you see like Animations and Transitions, there are a collection of new ones like Annotation and Behaviors. This allows for unique editing abities like showcasing correct form in an athlete’s practice reels, or even demonstrating software.

There’s also a smart collection of visual assets and effects that work for those who need to make a demonstration out of anything going on in a computer desktop environment. It also has a screen recording software tool, to make those sorts of videos convenient to make in one program.
