Camtasia can be used to create video tutorials, green-screen videos, to convert PowerPoint slideshows into videos, and much more.

Among other things, you'll discover how to capture your screen, edit your video, apply animations, transitions and other special effects, record high-quality audio narrations and produce MP4 files that you can share with your viewers via any of the many video-sharing platforms available on the Internet.

The course content mentioned below is based on the latest available version of Camtasia, but this training can be given on all versions (the course content is then adapted according to the chosen version).

This course is intended for organizations and will be delivered at your premises. We do not organize calendar courses on TechSmith Camtasia.
