Hey everybody: how’s it going and welcome to today’s product look through its Camtasia version 9, so first off a recording this on Camtasia 8 so hopefully have hope in any conflicts. But camtasia annoying is the latest and greatest video screen recording and editing suite by TechSmith.
They say it’s, a suite because you don’t just record the screen top or PowerPoint or wherever you’re. Going to record. You can then go and edit it and annotations animations resident all that kind of has a fall kind of you know, big editing, suite and that’s.
The real power of this, and and there’s wise, probably one of the most in industry leading products for for this type of thing, you know certainly, sites such as udemy recommend it as well as many many other people recommend this product to to Do your screen, recording and, and you know, the kind of the the reasons are vast.
I mean just the fact that, for example, you can choose to record a small portion of your screen. We call the entire screen you’re, given your custom sizes, you can have your webcam on. You know you can do all this.
Just the fact that you know just from the recording part allowing you have a lot of power and potential to to really customize what you want to record and then once you’ve recorded, you can then start to move into the.
You know the editing suite, and this is where we are at the moment, so this is something I recorded a little bit earlier, just as a demo, so that I can actually you know, do something within this. As you can see, I’ve got the timeline.
I can scroll through and see what happens and all it is it’s. Actually, this is a different protocol. Photostory it’s. You create animation from images. Basically, so if I was to play this, all you’d.
Hear is a bear music because it’s, something’s been generated but anyway. So if we look at the actual this application, Camtasia 9 – I can see here we have two tracks. One of them will be audio, and one of them were with the screen and you can choose to record the desktop, etc and which is what all this one hits here, and then this one off the screen is, this is all silent, and then I’ll start playing some music and, and there you go so when we’ve got to this point.
As I say you can do your play. You can do your share if you want to you, can export, but what you can really start to do then, and what’s? The real powers, probably was you can start doing things to this this animation, this video to enhance it.
So we can add things like annotations, so I could pull an annotation into the screen. I could say holding example. So then what happened is at that point? Bang. If the annotation happens – and you know you can resize that – and you know it really kind of add extra elements – and you see for don’t think that’s in the right place.
I can pull it around. You know I can have a little voice come out there. You can add things like drop shadow there. You can see, as you can see, because in the drop shadows on so that kind of first of all gives you a lot of effect to kind of enhance start with.
You know you can actually start adding the annotation, so you & # 39. Ve got like a little, you know a man on the screen and you want to put words in there or you can say you know point at a button. I want to point at this button there and I can button and then what happens is well.
It gets this point you can you can, you know, point out something that you want in there and and and sort of do things like pointing out elements. The next thing obviously transitions and let me just do a split.
You know on the video and you can have you know you just do out anything different there, because obviously I’ve. It’s all part the same video, but if you have two separate videos and you want to kind of put a transition in you poor transition and then you know you’ve got that transition going on there.
So you know these are some things you kind of see within any kind of you know a normal editing, Suites per se. You know you can also add to the start of these things: transitions and end. So when you & # 39, ve got the call-outs.
You can you don’t, have them just suddenly appear, you can have them. You know come on, you want them, come on and go off at cetera, so you can start adding for transitions to not just your your screen, but you can add transitions to any of these kind of annotations that you put in next.
We’ve got these behaviors. You can see the the fact that they, the behavior, I’ve added to the video it kind of adds effect. If you know I mean so, if I were to just split that point there and I wanted to different, be able to say I wanted a a fade.
For example, I can add a fade to it and then it kind of adds to be able to the to the video you can’t be over to obviously any effect that’s on here again. So let’s. Go back and add another annotation, the annotation come up and go back to behavior, and I want this to be a pulsating so because you know is pulsates so that again it’s kind of adding adding animation to the video to the annotations.
You know it’s, it’s. Building up, you know a kind of fully animated video production. If you see what I mean it’s, it’s, actually allowing you to do all these extra things, and you know these are animations.
We’ve got we & # 39. Ve got some cursor effects. If you want to kind of, if you you know doing something on the screen – and you want to highlight that then we can, you know we can actually have these curse of highlights happen, so you can sort of grab everything around just by there.
So if you’re gonna, like click on the button, you say at this point when to click on this button, you can actually have that happen. There you can. You can. You know highlight again that on screen the whole thing about this program, isn’t to record Google Desktop, but then it’s about kind of showing you know and highlighting things like biunder ending these.
You know annotations banned in these transitions and behaviors by adding these cursors it’s. Really pointing and saying look at this look at this. You know it works really well for creating things like courses, you know training courses or you know some sort of business video.
It really works. Well, in that kind of a situation, your voice, dilatational add some voice, no rotation audio effect, so you can obviously increase your volume. You can do some clip if it’s. If you & # 39, ve got your.
You know your voice clip in got some more visual effects there so colorize add some drop shadow, etc. Again, these all the the sort of things that you would you would do it see you’re doing it within within a video suite that doesn’t record the screen, and then you’ve got some interactive stuff.
So you can add like a quiz or you know, if you want to add the quiz part way through the timeline, then you can add a quiz. I’m saying you know at this point: do you understand this and this and they can say yes, no etc and then finally, you & # 39.
Ve got some captions. If you want add captions at the bottom, once you’ve. Actually created everything, then you can just literally export it, so you can export it as if export it for mac. You can do recording from there.
You can click the share button here to share it straight to online yeah. It really is easy for local file, and this is where um export it to my hard drive. For example, here you can see the different size I can exporting.
You can dicussed them and then you can choose the you know what size you really want to do. If you’ve, if you’ve recorded the screen at a big resolution, you can choose to to change it down and then literally you go through.
You can change the sizes here, for example, and change all your options and then keep clicking through eventually to export, which is here and then this starts to build it and export it to a the video format that you’ve chosen.
So there’s a lot to this, and this is kind of a fairly equipment if it’s, not that quick, but it’s a fairly quick run-through and there’s a lot more, that I could Go through within this, but I just want to do it sort of a first quick look through and review.
Give you an idea what it looks like give you an idea what you can do. As I say, I love that these annotations that you can do. I use these – probably you know. Quite often when I’m, doing more training, video stuff, the behaviors are fantastic.
I don’t use these that much, but they are really good. If you want to sort of add animation, especially to your annotations, you know I wouldn & # 39. T really add them so much to the video itself, because, as you see, the video starts to look a bit.
You know funny, but the annotations you know if I was to play because it’s animation here, bossing away pulsating the world. That really adds, I think, a great bit of animation to to that, to kind of highlight it more so yeah that’s, Camtasia annoyed it’s, a really fantastic product.
It’s. The only video recording software that I use on Windows I’ve, also got an install and all that install on Mac, but it’s. Definitely the only barely recording the screen recording product I use on Windows.
I’ve, used it multiple times to record both training courses and video reviews and yeah. It really is a fantastic program. Camtasia 9 brings a whole new bunch of things and into actually made it much easier to use.
In my own opinion, it’s, so much easier and clearer in the program version 9 is over version, 8 version that was good virgin oils better, so that’s, Camtasia version 9. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed looking at this video enjoyed going through it.
You may see more in-depth video coming up, but this is kind of a you know. My first first look through and first quick review, having used it for a couple of days name. So watch out for there in the future – and I will speak to you all very soon, thanks for watching and catch you later guys,
