TechSmith Releases Camtasia Studio 5

TechSmith, the sponsor of our InkShows, just released Camtasia Studio 5. We use Camtasia Studio to record all of our software InkShows and it is a very powerful application. Learn more and download the trial here. Check out the new feature set below. Camtasia Studio is available for $299.

Camtasia Studio Streamlined recorder for swifter capture
The streamlined Camtasia Recorder makes selecting an area to record both fast and easy. There’s just one button, no confusing choices. And the clever, new crosshairs makes it child’s play to select a region, object, window, or the whole screen.

SmartFocus: freedom to capture now, decide later
Don’t worry about the final product, just relax and record your whole screen. Camtasia SmartFocus keeps track of where the action happens during your recording. It automatically creates editable zoom-n-pan points that keep the important parts visible with razor-sharp clarity…even if you produce the video for iPod-sized screens. Fully automatic, very freeing. You’ve never seen anything like this.

Kiss supporting files goodbye.
TechSmith ExpressShow creates a single, beautiful Flash SWF file that can be easily embedded into any Web site, blog, or multimedia project. With a glossy thumbnail image, full-screen playback option, and floating table of contents, this is Flash video that makes you look good. Very good.

Predictable, surgically precise editing
Camtasia Studio 5 projects are now edited at 30 frames per second. With more frames to choose from, it’s easier to cut—and keep—precisely what you want, and with greater project stability.

Easy output for bloggers FTP Settings
Camtasia Studio 5 lets bloggers record and publish to, and blog about it in minutes. Or using the built-in FTP support, moving videos to your own server can be just as painless.

An experience you can count on Project Settings
Now with Project Settings and an accurate preview, you can edit your video and see exactly what it will look like before you produce it. And the new AutoSave protects your edits in the event of a crash.
