TechSmith Updates Camtasia with 2 New Apps
TechSmith has updated its video creation tool, Camtasia, with new companion apps and more.
The newest version, Camtasia 9.1 for Windows and 3.1 for Mac, adds a screen recording app for iOS 11 and an app, also for iOS 11, that allows users to put overlay effects on specified parts of a static image.
Other new features include:
- Device framing, which allows users to instantly snap screen recordings or other media into a computer or other device screen to instantly see how videos, sites or apps look on a variety of devices;
- The ability to import PowerPoint files;
- Pre-packaged assets designed to be easily editable to align with corporate branding or simply to save time; and
- An improved extend frame for the Windows version.
"Video has become an essential tool for anyone who needs to provide knowledge or information in an efficient and engaging manner," Wendy Hamilton, CEO, TechSmith Corp said. "Nearly 52 percent of marketing professionals worldwide name video as the type of content with the best return on investment. Camtasia's new features allow marketers, training professionals, educators to easily create attention-grabbing and informative videos anytime."
The update is currently available for free to users of Camtasia Windows 9 and Camtasia Mac 3. Users with older versions can upgrade for $99.50 at shop.techsmith.com.
