New Book: Camtasia Studio 8 – The Definitive Guide

The Camtasia Studio book is available now!

When TechSmith launched the first version of Camtasia in 1999, Daniel Park made the videos for the new release. Daniel has been involved with Camtasia from the start. Daniel is a professional screencaster and has started his own company, dappertext. He has trained people around the world to be better screencasters.

And, now, Daniel has written the book about Camtasia. Well, actually 6 books about Camtasia over the years! Daniel just released a new book – “Camtasia Studio 8 – The Definitive Guide”.  The book is an interactive PDF with over 300 full color screenshots and 30 screencasts totaling nearly an hour. The book has no DRM and is cross platform as well.

Check out a sample from the book here.

Camtasia Studio Boot Camp Training with the Author

Want hands on help? You’re in luck, as Daniel is offering training in late March/early April! You can find more details on our blog post here.

  • Basic Training Boot Camp is a healthy mix of theory and practice, focusing on learning the general functionality of Camtasia Studio and its standard workflow of record > edit > produce > share. While we’ll be working on stock projects in class, the more intermediate and advanced users are encouraged to bring and work on their own projects, where I’ll be available to assist, and may even use your project as a class example.
  • Advanced Topics Boot Camp picks up from Basic Training, cementing basic concepts while exploring new areas like video hosting, equipment, and third-party software. The Advanced Topics Boot Camp is entirely learner-driven. Registrants will be surveyed ahead of time about their current needs, the gaps in their knowledge, and what they’d most like to take away from the course. We then custom-create a specialized curriculum based on this information, and devote the entire first day of the workshop to addressing these topics to the benefit of all.
