Camtasia 2020 Now Available from JourneyEd!

TechSmith Camtasia 2020 will be released on April 28, and will be available from JourneyEd.

Camtasia makes it simple for anyone from beginner to expert to record and create professional-looking videos on Windows and Mac. There's no better tool for creating tutorial, training, and demo videos.

This new Camtasia 2020 release includes features to drive upgrades and license expansions from your current customers, and is also a strong offering to new customers. The Templates feature especially helps new customers overcome any intimidation with the video creation process.

• Templates - users can start from one of the included pre-built video templates, or create their own, saving time and ensuring consistency.

• Packages - users can share templates, themes, presets, and more with other users. Camtasia Packages provide new users in an organization with all the tools they need to make the same high quality videos as the experts from that organization.

• Favorites - users can keep all of their frequently used video tools and effects in one place close at hand for faster video creation.

• Enhanced Recorder - users can easily record exactly what they want, with the best possible quality.

• And much more!
