TechSmith Camtasia is a screen recording and video editing application for Windows and macOS. It includes various tools for creating various types of videos, including video tutorials, presentations, meeting recordings, and webinars.

Camtasia allows you to record your screen activity, whether using a word processor, surfing the web, gaming, or making a video call. Before recording, you can choose the settings of the recording, including the size, frames per second, and audio input. After you finish your recording, you can add various effects to enhance it, such as animations, titles, annotations, and transitions. You can also create quizzes to increase viewer engagement or import other videos, images, and audio into the recording.

When you finish editing your recording, you can share it in several ways. For example, you can export the video as a local .MP4 video file or publish it directly to YouTube, Screencast, or an online video course. Camtasia also allows you to upload your video to Google Drive to store it, or you can upload it to TechSmith Video Review to receive feedback from other Camtasia users.

It lets you capture your screen activity, enhance the video with titles, transitions, and effects, then export the finished product as a local video file or to an online video platform.
