Camtasia released

TechSmith has released its first Mac-based screen capture utility, Camtasia. The software is used to record both audio and video captured from a users computer screen in order to create training videos, presentations and software video tutorials. The application can simultaneously record audio from an external microphone or the built-in microphone. The program is also used to edit the captured media and includes a SmartFocus tool that automatically adds customizable track, pan and zoom framing to the captured video.

The application also includes filters and video effects such as Reflections, Glow and Fade In/Out. Users can export their completed video in the appropriate sizes for YouTube, iTunes, and Screencast as well as in custom sizes. The exported files can also be generated with HTML that is used to embed the video online in a flash format.

Camtasia for Mac requires Mac OS X 10.5.6 and is available from the TechSmith online store. The app can currently be purchased at an special price of $100, but will soon be increased to $150.
