Camtasia tutorial for beginners.

Camtasia tutorial. Being able to share your computer screen by making tutorials and reviews for different products and services can be really valuable and powerful if you share a lot of value.. Or maybe you want to create a training that you will sell as a product? In any case, having a software that shares your screen, your face , or both is very useful when it comes to marketing, branding and making money online. Camtasia provides solutions regarding this and you can watch my step by step Camtasia tutorial below.

 

Your two options

You have two options when it comes to getting started with using Camtasia. You can buy it directly in the Techsmith store or you can start by taking the 30 day free trial. After the trial has ended you need to pay a fee to be able to keep using this software. So to try it out before spending any money on Camtasia, taking the free 30 day trial can be a wise decision. Before you can start to use Camtasia you have to download the software and install it on your computer. You can use it on a pc or a  Mac. You also need to login to your  account at Techsmit, Techsmith is the company that owns Camtasia and other software’s as well.

The steps

As you also can see in the video above the first step when creating a video is of course to click the record button on top. Then a menu bar will appear. There you can edit the setting that you want to be using for your video. You can choose to only record your screen or only your face, or both. Click the button below each setting to turn them on. You can choose to turn system audio on or off  and choose what microphone you want to be using for your recording. Then when you are done then simply click the record button at the menu bar. Go to the timeline of a video as I am showing you in the Camtasia tutorial video above, to edit your recording. Click on effects and more options to the left on the screen then choose what effects you want to add to your videos by dragging them down to the time line.

Summary

Having a software like Camtasia means that you can teach people different things, you can use them for tutorials and reviews. You can teach colleages at your job something particular or create a product,  just to mention a  few examples. There are several video editing software’s out there similar to Camtasia of course, but I thing that Camtasia is easy to use even for beginners. And besides you can try it out for 30 days before deciding if you want to pay for it or not.
