Why upgrade? Your viewers will benefit

For those still undecided about spending the $99 to get on the latest version, there are lots of good reasons for giving it some serious thought. The most important reason is that Camtasia Studio 8 helps you make the kind of videos your viewers love to watch. The web is cluttered with videos, all competing for your viewers’ attention. For $99 you get a tool that helps your content cut through the clutter.

Two quick examples of what I’m talking about, both made with Camtasia Studio 8…

CS8 example: Classroom introduction video

Math teacher Graham Johnson  needed a way to introduce parents to his flipped classroom approach and set their expectations for the school year. As he explains in a post on his blog,

“Rather than doing an email or a newsletter I elected to create a video. As I learned the hard way with my initial flip videos if they are not short and to the point you can lose the viewer. I tried to keep it short and also bring some interactivity to it to personalize the experience.”

This is Mr. Johnson’s first crack at an interactive video; think of the possibilities for engaging YOUR audience!

CS8 example: Marketing video

PCRecruiter needed to give customers and potential customers a look at the new version of their job applicant tracking software. Camtasia Studio 8 let them combine screen video, screenshots, graphics, music, and text in ways simply not possible with earlier versions of Camtasia Studio. This style of video feels sophisticated—with its layered video, subtle movement, and smooth transitions—but is easily within reach of the average Camtasia Studio 8 user.

What’s new webinar

If you want a deeper dive…spend an hour of quality time with the Camtasia product manager, Shane Lovellette, and lead developer, Dave O’Rourke, in the replay of our recent webinar. You’ll understand just how deep the changes to Camtasia Studio were in this release. (Fun fact: we entertained the idea of changing the name of the product instead of using a version number, because it was such a dramatic rewrite of the product.)

And if all those reasons don’t convince you to upgrade…consider what the people using and reviewing it have to say.
