Camstudio is a pretty straight-forward video capture software application which does exactly what it says. The main features are simple and it's completely free. It's a small and stable application which can highlight a cursor path, automatically pan and it does this (and more) while recording sound. It also gives users the ability to add annotations/closed captions and the option of adding a timestamp to the video output.
By using animated text, live photos, and sticker animations, you can turn static graphic posts into short social videos that offer major wow-factor with minimal work. One-tap social videos are easy to make in Adobe Spark Post. From the mobile app (available on Android and iOS), pick from the templates crafted by our professional designers to begin making the content your own. You can also start from scratch by tapping the plus button. From there, add animations under “effects” to easily transform a graphic into a video.
In March 2016, the developers of CamStudio reported via forum post that the ad wrapper in the CamStudio installer had been removed and that it no longer offers third-party software or installs malware; however, they did not provide evidence of independent verification in the post. In a VirusTotal analysis of the installer acquired from the official download URL on 10 August 2016, AVware, Dr. Web and VIPRE antivirus tools said it was infected with "InstallCore" while the remaining 51 said it was clean.
Though university I graduated from (and one my daughter currently attends) have limited academic licenses available, I chose to purchase an indvidual pro license that I could use for my personal and professional use in 2011. I am glad I did! At the time I purchased Camtasia Studio 7 (CS7), but at a time when Camtasia Studio 8 was being previewed and was a no cost upgrade. There have been some growing pains with Camtasia Studio 8 (CS8), but the current 8.2 release seems to have stabilized and all major features I seek now have more function and are as fast or faster to render as the old reliable CS7.
Screen recording tools are invaluable for eLearning professionals nowadays and with good reason. Many of these tools also have additional video editing options, which gives eLearning professionals the chance to fully customize videos for online training purposes. Most importantly, all those tools are free of charge and constitute great Camtasia Studio alternatives.
Good, worked as expected. One issue: IT COMPLETELY RUINED MY VOLUME. Before using this, my volume was amazing. I couldn't even have it at full volume or it would blow my headphones out. After using this, I turn the volume all the way up and I can barely hear anything. I uninstalled the program, and guess what? MY VOLUME WAS STILL BROKEN. I HAD NO ISSUES UNTIL I USED THIS JUNK. DO NOT DOWNLOAD AT ALL. EVER!!!!!
