When should I use Camtasia?

Plan your video—what kind of video do you want to make? This will help determine which application to use. If you want to create a voiceover PowerPoint or basic screencast, check out Kaltura or Screencast-O-Matic. If you want more flexible editing capabilities, or to make your videos more engaging, try Camtasia.

When to use Camtasia vs Kaltura

Kaltura is a good choice if you…

  • Are new to creating videos
  • Need to record your webcam and/or screen
  • Are looking to create a video with voiceover and slides
  • Only need minimal editing capabilities
  • Need to record something quickly

Camtasia is a good choice if you…

  • Are more experienced with making videos, or are tech savvy
  • Want to record your webcam and/or screen
  • Want to use footage you've shot on another camera, or phone
  • Need more flexible editing options
  • Want access to basic animations, effects, or annotations
  • Are using a green screen

What are the recommended settings for Camtasia?

There are three basic record settings to be aware of: Canvas Dimensions, Project Settings, and Sharing File Settings.

Canvas Dimensions inform the default resolution of the screen recording.

  • Select Camtasia 2020 dropdown.
  • Click Preferences.
  • Click Project tab.
  • The default is 1920x1080. Keep this setting or select higher resolution; never select lower resolution.
Project Settings control the resolution and frame rate of the video you are editing in the timeline. It will be automatically set to 1920x1080 and 30fps (frames per second) before any media is added. However, if the resolution of the first piece of media you bring onto the timeline is different than 1920x1080, the Project Settings will default to that new resolution and frame rate.

Online Photo Editor

  • Click on the Edit menu.
  • Select Project settings.
  • Verify that the Dimensions read '1080p (1920x1080)' and that Frame Rate says '30fps'.

Share File Settings control the resolution and frame rate of the finished video you are exporting from Camtasia. When your video is complete, follow the sharing settings below to export.

How do I export or share a video from Camtasia?

Share Settings control the resolution and frame rate of the finished video you are exporting from Camtasia. When your video is complete, follow these share settings to export.

  • Click on the Share menu.
  • Select Local File.
  • Verify that the file format is set to 'Export to MP4' and select Options.
  • Verify that Frame Rate is set to 'Automatic' and Dimensions is set to 'Current'—if they are, the exported video will have the same resolution and frame rate as the Project Settings. Select OK if any changes have been made.
  • Enter file name in the 'Export As:' field.
  • Select a location for the file to save to.
  • Click Export.

Why is my video blurry?

Check your Recording Settings. Chances are, they've been changed by accident and simply need to be reset to 1920x1080.
