Camtasia Filehippo Features

1) No limits on video length

This is one area that sets Camtasia apart from most other competitors out there, especially the free products that are available for download.

The software does not have a limitation on the length of videos or any other project created using the software. This is a major benefit of Camtasia Filehippo as certain projects such as sales presentations can be lengthy.

I use the software for my product review videos and tutorials, so the length of my videos varies from a few minutes to hours. I needed a product like this mainly because others limit my recording time.

2) Capable of recording anything

As I mentioned earlier, the product is very versatile and has very few limitations on what you can record.

The software is capable of recording:

  • Computer screens
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Computer camera or webcam
  • Voice narration
  • Any other audio

When recording your computer screen or PowerPoint presentations, you can turn on your computer camera and be featured in the videos. For example, you can set the software to show a live recording of the presenter in the actual video. The presenter will be in the bottom right corner of the video for your viewers to see.

3) Editing videos

Whether you recorded the video using Camtasia Screen recorder or any other video recording software, you will be able to convert the file format and edit the recording using the drag and drop editor.

From editing visual effects to adding animations, you will be able to edit almost anything with Camtasia Studio.

The software goes above and beyond by enabling you to add interactivity functions to your videos (things like adding quizzes to keep your viewers engaged).

4) Importing and exporting

Camtasia Filehippo supports .camproj, .camrec, and .avi file formats when importing and exporting projects.

All projects can be shared and transferred to multiple computers and locations. Screen recordings can be transferred from a PC to a Mac or vice versa.

5) Camtasia integrates well with other products

Because of the screen recording capabilities, the software will be able to record the usage of any third-party software.

Camtasia integrates flawlessly with Microsoft Outlook which is a must for presentations.

6) Publish and share to YouTube

Completed projects can be published and uploaded to YouTube, Google Docs, MyPlaces, and Screencast right from the Camtasia dashboard. This is very convenient and much easier than the sharing options found on other software.

Other Important Functions

Record your screen: Record anything your whole screen or just a window. Or, add video, images, audio, and PowerPoint presentations that you already have.
Make Edits: A simple timeline makes editing videos easy. Combine or split clips, trim, and speed up or slow down footage. Then, instantly preview inside the video editor.
Add effects: Give videos polish with professional video editor effects. Add highlights, animation, titles, transitions and more. Simply drag and drop the effects onto the timeline.
Tiles, Callouts, and Annotations: Grab attention in your videos with eye-catching titles, annotations, effects and more.
Zoom and Animate: Add zoom in, zoom out, and pan animations to your screen recordings.
Create quizzes: Add quizzes and interactivity to encourage and measure learning in your videos.
Record & Import Presentations: Turn your presentation into a video. Record or import PowerPoint slides directly into Camtasia.
Transitions: Use transitions between scenes and slides to improve the flow of your videos.

Camtasia cons

The software is not perfect and has a few minor flaws that I do not consider deal-breakers.

1) Camtasia requires software

In order to record videos and capture your computer screen, you have to download the Camtasia software which requires specific system requirements for Windows and Mac operating systems.

As of right now, they do not offer a web-based version of the software.

2) DV camera support

Camtasia does not support live recording from a digital video camera which may be a deal-breaker for those that still use a DV camera.

3) Software updates

You only allowed to updates your software to a new version of your current version. For example, if you have Camtasia Studio 9 and version 9.2 comes out, you will be able to update for free.

However, if version 10 is released, you will have to pay to upgrade to the new version.
