Camtasia Screen Recorder Usability

Firstly, Camtasia screen recorder is one of most simple to use screen recording software I’ve tried. During the past two years, I’ve reviewed a large amount of free & paid screen recorder software, some of them are very complicated to use. With Camtasia, all you need to do is open the program, select a capture mode-> turn on webcam, and audio recording ->and hit REC button. That’s is a huge time saving procedure of this program.

Secondly, the program also gives you a bunch of customize settings such as adding annotations, system stamp to your recording, customize stop/start hotkey, adjust audio level, webcam’s lighting condition and so on.

Camtasia Screen Recorder Workflow

It’s slightly different compare to other simple screen recording applications you see on the market. What other screen recorders often do is when you stop the recording, a video file will be created. You don’t have to render it again.

With Camtasia screen recorder, when you hit stop recording button, you will be redirected to the editor, where you cut, trim unwanted parts of the recording, add annotations (call-outs) to your recording. And finally, export your recording into video format. That’s when your work is done! This means you will need double your time to finish your recording if you use Camtasia screen recorder. I personally like this workflow, as I can edit my recording afterward.

Camtasia Screen Recorder Performance

I’ve tested Camtasia screen recorder in different scenarios such as record full screen desktop, record a software tutorial, record a streaming movies on YouTube and so on. All these intended use work fine with Camtasia. The program uses minimum resource to give you high quality recording.

Well, there is an exception. When I tried to use Camtasia for recording a game-play, it seems not work perfectly. Many frames are dropped, and the quality is very bad. Maybe, it is not designed for game recording, I think!
