Absolute pleasure to use, but really buggy and poor bug tracking

Camtasia is an absolute pleasure to use. Year after year I have tried to work with iMovie but would get so frustrated that I did my best to avoid having to create new videos. With Camtasia, I just know what to do for most things. What should be obvious is obvious. For the first time ever I actually enjoy making videos. BUT there is a huge caveat. The program is really buggy. Although it crashes often (maybe once per hour), it does a great job of restoring everything upon rerunning, so crashes haven't lost me work, only a little time. There are numerous other little bugs that don't crash, and those are more annoying. When I report bugs to Camtasia, they come back the next day asking for files that allow them to recreate the problem. I don't always know how to recreate the problem, and by then I've done a work-around don't have those files. I tell them so, they reply with the same request. A few days later they close the bug report for lack of activity. Two bug reports, same thing both times. No wonder this thing is so buggy. I've stopped reporting bugs because they don't seem to care. So sad for something potentially so good.

Best video editor in this range

I had previously worked extensively with Filmora. The video output in Filmora (as well as Movavi) was not razor sharp. With Filmora, raw footage would become soft looking no matter what setting was used. By comparison, our 1080p video looks crisp and razor sharp coming out of Camtasia.

Why I now prefer Camtasia 2019 over all other editors: The editing is process is so incredibly fast and intuitive. It has everything I need to produce professional looking product & information videos for our company. It’s a perfect tool for creating explanatory video content! The user interface has a sensible layout. And best of all, Camtasia output looks awesome - crystal clear!

Camtasia is a simple program to work with. Yet under the hood it has all the features needed to produce solid video content. It has all the tools I need for creating high quality Youtube content - transitions, effects, callouts, it’s all there. And the editing process is a pleasure - splitting, trimming, ripple, stitching, etc - it just all makes sense.

When I edit, I want excellent results, without getting bogged down in the process. Camtasia makes sense for this small business owner! And the sale price of $99 made Camtasia all that more approachable.

I’ve tried a few editors, and Camtasia stands out as a superior editor, with easy to use features that cover all the bases. It’s more complete than iMovie, easier to work with than Final Cut Pro, and produces far better output than Filmora or Movavi. The editing process is quick and finished videos look excellent.

I’m totally satisfied with Camtasia. Thank you for an excellent product. Highly recommended!

P.S. Regarding the review above about “bugs”; Camtasia has not crashed for me yet. And I haven’t observed any “buggy" behavior. Maybe their computer has limited processor speed, memory, etc.
