Our owau on December 10th with be Camtasia 6. All of you have a lot more experience with this program that Davie and I do, and functionally it's relatively unchanged. But it's reportedly easier to use and you can record in H264 video for good quality at a reasonable size. It exports to various sizes, and movies can be uploaded to Screencast.com for free (2 GB storage, 2 GB bandwidth or 5 GB and 200 MB bandwidth for $9.95 a month). It still converts Powerpoint shows, has a variety of call outs and hotspots and allows multiple audio and video tracks.
The best way to say hui and refamiliarize yourself with Camtasia is to watch their overview video tutorial or do a print tutorial. If you choose the video tutorial scroll down and many other short tutorials, just like...Apple! And just like Apple, they're good! Click here to see them. For our owau please watch the overview and one other tutorial that interests you and we'll share.
If you prefer text tutorials those are available too.
Price? $299 street price, about $198 academic pricing.
Academic Supterstore has Camtasia for Mac for an introductory $94 including shipping. That's cheaper than Screenflow 2.0 but they are neck and neck in pros and cons. Camtasia for Mac is rumored to go up to $149.
While you're looking at the Camtasia site you might also want to watch the short video on what's new in Sangit 9. I'd never used the stamps (arrows etc) but it looks good! http://www.techsmith.com/snagit/whatsnew.asp
