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 microphone, 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.
Camtasia Studio v8 for Microsoft Windows consists of two major components:
- Camtasia Recorder – a separate tool for capturing screen audio and video. This can be used to easily capture a screen or portion of a screen while capturing audio from a microphone. Most people use this to show something on the screen, such as a document, website, video, or presentation, while describing it.
- Camtasia Studio editor – this suite allows a user to edit the capture they just performed. Users can add audio, insert video, cut and paste portions, and zoom in to more specific regions of the screen to produce a more professional video.
