Camtasia 2024 Simplifies Video Creation

East Lansing, MI (USA), June 2024 - TechSmith Corporation, an industry leader in visual communication, has released the highly anticipated Camtasia 2024, the new version of the company's award-winning, all-in-one screen recording and video editing software. The latest release unveils a powerful new recording engine for higher frame rate and resolution screen capture, while delivering transformative features including AI-powered dynamic captions, new effects, filters, and transitions, as well as heightened asset integrations so users can explore 100+ million professional, royalty-free video assets directly within the editor.

These, in addition to other new AI-assisted features, help users push the limits of their creativity and produce content above and beyond their skill level - all while reducing editing time.

Camtasia 2024 also introduces three product plans: Camtasia Essentials, Camtasia Create, and Camtasia Pro. In response to longtime-user demand, Camtasia Create and Camtasia Pro will offer AI functionality from TechSmith's text-based audio editor Audiate, including text-based video editing, automated audio cleanup, as well as AI-generated scripts and voices. Additionally, all product plans include Camtasia's innovative AI-assisted Rev workflow, introduced in Camtasia 2023, which simplifies and speeds up video creation through quick layout and design choices. For the first time, Camtasia 2024 users can take advantage of this feature with external media sources.

"The updates to Camtasia 2024 are focused on further reducing the friction of the editing process and empowering users to unleash their creativity and go beyond what they thought possible with a video editor," said Tony Lambert, CTO of TechSmith. "As we continue incorporating advanced AI into Camtasia to achieve this, our new product plans are designed to provide customers with the most cost-effective way to select our breadth of new features based on their unique creative needs."

Other new Camtasia 2024's features include

  • dynamic captions - Powered by AI, every word on the screen can be highlighted as it is spoken. With support for many different language options, users choose one of the eight preset styles or use the properties panel to customize base styles or create unique ones.
  • asset integration - Select assets such as titles, footage, callouts, dynamic backgrounds, music, audio visualizers, and photos directly within the Camtasia editor to get videos done even faster while adding polish.
  • visual enhancements - Access dozens of new behaviors, dynamic backgrounds, and audio visualizers for more flexibility in customizing each video for a professional outcome.
  • tiling visual effect - Create custom animated backgrounds with a logo, image, or video repeated in a pattern across your screen. There is also added flexibility to change sizes and spacing.

This is the full feature list of the Camtasia product plans:

  • Camtasia Essentials is the base software plan including screen recording, video editing, the Rev workflow, and layouts. Users receive all the same features and functionality that come with the classic version of Camtasia.
