With this release we brought the best of Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac together and added new ways to help you create amazing, engaging content. Regardless of the platform you choose, you will now enjoy a fresh, modern look that puts everything right at your fingertips with a unified user interface and workflow across both Mac. Here’s how Camtasia 9 looks on my x monitor, ideal for previewing x [p] content, unscaled.
Click twice to zoom in all the way. The wait has actually been well over 5 years, and I sure hope it was worth it. Heck, my Windows workstations have been 64 bit since the Vista days, a decade ago. I was getting seriously worried there for a bit, since I’ve invested well over 5 years creating hundreds of popular technical YouTube videos with Camtasia. Pretty basic cuts and fades are all I really need. The source footage is mostly screen recordings of my x p Windows desktop, but occasionally the imported media is an MOV file from an iPhone, at x 30fps, or from an iPhone 6 Plus, at 60fps.
I’ll actually be doing a simple unboxing video of a new 10GbE switch this weekend, editing and publishing the 4K video as a test. My how to video for it will likely consist of about 3 hours of footage that I edit down to about an hour, performing to careful scene cuts or speed ups. When working with such a large project that takes hours to edit, and hours more to render, that’s exactly when the legacy 32 bit Camtasia Studio 8 for Windows traditionally began to falter and sometimes crash.
Yep, just as you near the end of a giant editing job, and not really in the mood to lose any changes made since your last save. Automatic safe and automatic crash recovery usually works.
Hopefully I’ll find some unsability enhancements along the way as well. Flashbacks I have my fingers crossed that the stability of this new 64 bit code base will be improved, but 20 years of experience with PCs tells me that is unlikely. Oh what a disaster all video software was those days.
Camtasia isn’t perfect, but it’s way easier and more stable than anything I had tried before it. Still, keep in mind this seems to really be a dot-zero release of completely rewritten software, not merely a recompile.
Not sure, but the skin and look and feel certainly do appear quite new. None of that mattered much with Camtasia 8 though, editing and rendering both seemed limited largely by CPU speed, and larger memory sizes available in today’s computers wasn’t getting used.
I’m hoping 64 bit will help keep more of a big project in working memory, rather than getting swapped out to disk. No software is perfect, and I’ve tried several other video editing packages over the last 2 decades.
For me, winning points include easy tie in with YouTube for automatic upload after render relative ease-of-use many of peers and work colleagues also use it and helps justify the investment. For me, and my valued site visitors. To be a well-informed shopper, see also TechSmith’s Camtasia Windows support forum here for a reality check. I will be using both the new Camtasia 9 and Snagit 13 extensively in the coming days, and will add updates on my experiences, right below this article.
This procedure is focused only on the PC version of Camtasia that I’m personally testing. System Requirements If you’re upgrading, backup your system before you begin! Not sure what the implications of this are. Something like Veeam Endpoint Backup will do nicely, just in case you wind up wanting to restore your entire system to its previous state. Why would I strongly recommend such a drastic measure? Well, when you launch Camtasia and go to work on an existing.
That’s right, once converted, it would appear you can no longer go back to Camtasia 8 to open that same. So again, better off being safe than sorry, and starting with a complete system backup, to allow for easy roll-back should things not work out well for you with the new version.
Alternatively, install Camtasia 9 on a fresh copy of Windows 10 somewhere else, on a secondary workstation or VM, and kick the tires for a bit. Choose Windows, the file you download will be called: It’s not crippled in any way, other than the watermark on all produced videos. You can safely determine whether you like it, and if it performs well enough on your system. There are currently no coupon codes or discounts.

TinkerTry Tips – in Camtasia 9, two of four Camtasia 8 tips still apply From the 4 tips below that were in my Camtasia Studio 8 article , two are hopefully no longer relevant, which is why I crossed them out, seen below. For 1, I used to have to do janky stuff when trying to use MOV files, since Quicktime support from Apple is long gone for Windows users.
Despite that product removal, the MOV files from my iPhone do import and playback in Camtasia 9, albeit playback is jerky, from my limited tests so far. That would seem to indicate it didn’t remove the codec. See also TechSmith Community: Why did you remove support for. Pro-tip 1: How to edit. Unfortunately, Apple’s Quicktime installer refuses to work with Windows 10, even using the common tricks compatibility mode, run as admin, etc.
The only such software I’ve come across actually, having moved 7 other systems to Windows 10 these past 2 months. Good news, there is a workaround: This is no longer needed.
Importing of 30fps or 60fps MOV files from a iPhone 7 Plus is possible, although the output will still be 30fps, until Camtasia addresses the growing demand for 60fps content creation. COM Pro-tip 2: To create perfectly clear article headers This technique avoids resizing that will degrade your screenshots. This article, and most TinkerTry articles, are your examples.
Pro-tip 3: I use Snagit but am moving to another computer I recently rebuild my Windows 10 system from scratch. This meant moving my Snagit Editor images from one PC to another. Here’s the technique I used: Snagit Windows: I need to move my unsaved captures to another computer Jan 19 by Nate at support. Pro-tip 4: It usually recovers the work upon restart, but I’d rather it not happen in the first place.
Meanwhile, I save my work before making a lot of audio edits. Closing thoughts No software is perfect, and I’ve tried many other video editing packages over the years. For me, Camtasia’s easy tie in with YouTube for uploads, along with relative ease-of-use and the fact that many of my peers and work colleagues also use it, means it was well worth the investment. To be a well-informed shopper, see also TechSmith’s Camtasia Windows support forum here.
I have now produced my first 4K video that required some light editing. Basically, I did the following: It would seem this is a light-refresh of the existing product, with a slightly altered UI, and recompiled for 64 bit execution. It seems to still have some of the bugs I had frequently seen in Camtasia Studio 8, such as failure to render then upload larger videos to YouTube, ending with an offer to save the MP4 locally, for later manual upload to YouTube.
It would seem that 4K is a pretty hefty price to pay for next-gen video production on PCs. You may also find this Camtasia forum discussion very helpful, it goes over many of the changes that are likely to trip you up, especially if you were used to Camtasia Studio 8. See also the latest Camtasia Hotkey. I made a mistake in the editing, forgetting to speed up or crop out a boring segment around 15 minutes in waiting for a new system to boot.
If I crop that segment out in YouTube, it will down-res the entire video to p. I chose to not bother, but I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Instead, it did nothing, recording lost. There may be a bug with this functionality, which I’ve reported, ticket Oct 19 Update I use a x primary monitor for my Windows 10 workstation, and one or two secondary x monitors. Such configurations are a huge productivity boost for content creators.
After the upgrade, 64 bit Snagit 13 luckily kept my library intact. But it was terribly slow at routine tasks like screen capture, taking between seconds to do what used to take under a second. Good news, turns out this article got most of my performance back, without having to open a new ticket: Crashes or the crosshairs are sluggish when trying to take a capture Oct 18 by Mike Spink at TechSmith Support Figured this tip might very well help you out too.
