Themes dictate how one slide transitions to the next, how media appears in each slide, and the way text enters each new slide. Like magic, the video editor toolbar lets you swap between and preview themes and colors to settle on what best suits your video story. You can even swap out fonts and text color to best convey your message, goal, and video mood.
The app allows you to transfer your projects to Screencast and edit them there. You will need an account for that on top of your Camtasia account. Both platforms provide free trials and subscriptions. Before upgrading, all your content will have a watermark in it. The label is hardly visible, so that won’t be much of an issue if you just want to enjoy the free software. However, if you’re going to attempt to do more professional work, you’ll want to spring for the upgrade and get the watermark removed.
If you can click a plus button, you can make a video! Simply click the plus icon on the slide to add video clips, photos, text, or icons. It’s simple to import media from your photo library or cloud-based storage solution, or select from the free stock photos and icons available to Spark Video users. Once your media is in a slide, you can easily edit individual videos for length (look for the clock icon in the lower right hand corner or easily use the slider to trim slides with video clips.) Don’t worry about getting the order perfect at the start, you can drag and drop to reorder slides at any time.
The Camtasia program allows import of various types of multimedia video and audio files including MP4, MP3, WMV, WMA, AVI, WAV and many other formats into the Camtasia proprietary CAMREC format, which is readable by Camtasia. The CAMREC format is a single container for potentially hundreds of multimedia objects including video clips, still images, document screen shots and special effect containers. Camtasia also allows entire projects under development to be exported as one zip file for portability to other workstations with Camtasia or other video editing software. The created video can be exported to common video formats including MPEG-2, MPEG-4, WMV, AVI, and Adobe Flash. There are preset output formats that can be read by software available on most current mobile devices, desktop, and laptop computers without requiring any Camtasia software or license. Camtasia Player v8.2 is an additional component included in the Microsoft Windows version only, which can be freely shared and supports replay of a variety of video formats on computers running Windows.

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.
Good, worked as expected. One issue: IT COMPLETELY RUINED MY VOLUME. Before using this, my volume was amazing. I couldn't even have it at full volume or it would blow my headphones out. After using this, I turn the volume all the way up and I can barely hear anything. I uninstalled the program, and guess what? MY VOLUME WAS STILL BROKEN. I HAD NO ISSUES UNTIL I USED THIS JUNK. DO NOT DOWNLOAD AT ALL. EVER!!!!!
It's an excellent choice for those that have to provide technical support or developer who have to design tutorials to explain how to use their programs. The range of output files is admittedly limited - CamStudio will only output in AVI format but you can also convert movies to Flash (SWF). You can also choose the codecs used to encode your screen capture shots and set the frame rate you need to capture at.
Spark Video comes pre-loaded with themes that control the overall look and feel of your video. Themes power transition effects between slides, allowing for logo reveals and logo animations. Simply tap the “Themes” category and choose from tk unique themes. You can also add music by uploading your own track or selecting one of the free songs in Spark Video.

This edit from Nick Smith, the "caretaker" of CamStudio, "to finance future development, CamStudio has chosen to use an ad-supported installer offering other free software during the installation process. Regardless of what AV software is reporting, CamStudio unequivocally is *not* infected with a trojan or any other malicious software. It is possible that software offered via the installer could be triggering the alert, but CamStudio and the installer are both clean."[citation needed]

Snagit is a screen capture and editing tool. It captures animation, graphics and text in the form of images or videos. The app also allows the user to enhance their images with special effects and multimedia features.[1] Snagit allows the user to grab the entire desktop, a region, a window, or a scrolling window. Features include the ability to combine images, blur and magnifying effects, arrows, callouts, torn edges, etc. In terms of sharing, the final capture can be saved in various formats, a URL or embed code can be produced, or it can be added to Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, MindManager, or Microsoft OneNote directly from the product interface.
Camtasia is a software that lets you create videos of your computer screen or webcam feed in real time. You can choose between recording your entire screen or define just a portion of it to be captured. In addition to producing high-quality video, the software lets you edit your videos once they are recorded. The editing feature includes many advanced options, including video superimposing, brightness adjusting, and video syncing as well as the ability to apply visual effects, such as blur or green screen. Once you've finished editing your video project, you can share it on sites like YouTube, Google, or the hosting site Screencast.
