Automatic Cursor Replacement

Camtasia automatically replaces the cursor in your recordings (TREC) with a matching vector cursor. This allows for greater cursor scaling without blurriness or loss of quality even when sharing cross-platform (Windows and Mac).

Cursor Path Editing

Edit, delete, or add cursor paths to Camtasia recordings (TREC) or add new cursor paths to images, videos, grouped media and more to create polished looking videos:

  • Software or product demos
  • Instructive or how-to videos
  • Business presentations and recorded slideshows

Emphasize a button or link with your cursor, match your voice narration with the on-screen cursor movement, correct a mistake made with the cursor during recording, and much more.

Camtasia and Audiate Sync

Export voice recordings to TechSmith Audiate (free trial or subscription required) for quick and powerful audio editing:

  • Automated effects improve the sound quality
