Camtasia for Mac Features
Top New Features
Cross-Platform Screen Recording
Collaborate with anyone, regardless of what kind of computer they’re using. We’ve updated our screen recording file format, so you can pass screen recordings freely between Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac. Using a single file format enables you to send a recording from one platform to the other effortlessly, including all the meta data, such as cursor effects and smart focus.
Camtasia’s new Google Drive integration lets you upload your videos into Google Drive to give your viewers access from any web browser or mobile device. You can also import files into Camtasia instantly from Google Drive.
TechSmith Fuse, our new mobile app, makes it simple to get exactly what you need from your devices into your projects. Send your photos and videos straight from your mobile device into Camtasia’s media bin. Then, use the editing power in Camtasia to create custom, shareable videos.

Easily Create Videos with Professional Polish
Get rid of distractions.
The freeze region feature in Camtasia for Mac 2.4 allows you to get rid of any unwanted pop-ups or alerts that appear on your screen during a recording. Use it to create professional and informational videos without distractions or revealing personal information. Instead of re-recording your entire presentation, freeze region is a quick fix to get professional results.
Give yourself more time.
It’s easier than ever to lengthen individual frames of a
video and give yourself more time to highlight specific points of
interest…or to simply add more time for narration.
Make videos the right length.
Simply drag and drop the Clip Speed effect onto your timeline to speed up or slow down your videos to the exact length you need. With Clip Speed you can easily lengthen or shorten your clips to match narration without it changing the pitch of your audio – saving you time and frustration!
Customize callouts & animations.
Give your video a less mechanical feel by changing the way your callouts or animations transition into place. By enabling easing, you can give your callouts or animations a subtle decline in speed before coming to a final stop.
Optimize your editing ability.
Lock and Turn Off Tracks and Color Picker
Safely edit only the tracks you are working on, while locked tracks remain unaffected from accidental changes. When you want tracks to have muted audio or hidden visuals, simply turn them off. Create different versions of your video in seconds! Brighten up your video with the new integrated color picker, which includes eight pre-set colors, and the option to match the color of your callouts to any color in your video.
Put yourself in your video!
Green Screen Effect
Integrate yourself or others directly into your videos – making it appear as though you’re right in the action of your videos. Also known as chroma key, the green screen effect allows you to create more professional and engaging videos.
Focus on what's important.
SpotLight and Mask FX
Use Spotlight and Mask FX to easily focus viewer attention to specific actions in your videos. Spotlight FX casts a light source across your media, and the Mask FX allows you to hide your screen, revealing only specific points of interest.
Captivate your audience.
Tilt and Restore Animations
Easily engage your audience by adding
a quick and simple tilt effect to both your webcam and screen recording. All you have to do is drag and drop to add the effect. And it’s just as easy to restore your video back to its original size.
Call out or hide information.
Annotations and Blur Effect
Easily add sketch motion callouts, speech bubbles, arrows, shapes, lines, and more to point out specific features throughout your video. Or, simply blur private information distracting parts in a video.
Emphasize your movements.
Cursor FX and Keystrokes
Draw attention to mouse clicks by highlighting, magnifying, or spotlighting points of emphasis, or add keystroke callouts to automatically capture any keyboard shortcuts used during recording and show them off as a graphic in your video. Add any of these engaging effects to help your viewers follow along with what is happening onscreen.
Show off your apps.
Get a simple and effective way to demonstrate your apps! Record video of your app in the simulator and showcase the device your app runs on by adding
a frame around your videos. Choose from an iPhone, iPad, Thunderbolt, MacBook Pro, and more.
