Default Re: Camtasia or Camstudio?

Camstudio and Lame ACM for Audio codec

I am running Vista 64, and can't get the Lame ACM .inf file to run and configure on my computer. Apparently, Lame is a 32 bit program. I Google'd the problem and found I have to jump through some complicated hoops to get 32 bit Lame working on 64 bit Vista.

Don't know if anyone else has the problem. After I find what works, I'll come back and post the link here.

Camtaseia is the best. I have used so many other video recorders but camtesia is quite handy to use and edit. I didn't even learn how to use it. Just started using. Its so easy.

Default Re: Camtasia or Camstudio?

This is a great thread and I'm glad I found it.

I've been using CamStudio for a while, but haven't had the time to compare it to Camtasia...until now. Josh's points are very sound - the quality of CamStudio is the same as Camtasia.

Based on what I've learned today, I'll record my video in CamStudio, pausing it as I need to and zooming in and out with my mouse. I'll record it at the highest quality possible, then import it into Adobe Premiere. In Premiere I'll add titles, video of me, backing music etc and then export from that program to my final file which I can send to YouTube etc.

Hi:

I said I would report on what I found, and I still can't get LAME codec to install on CamStudio.

Any 64 bit Vista wizards out there have any ideas?

Based on Josh's suggestionsL got me flix standard, sony vegas movie studio 9 platinum (now there's a mouthful!). Also grabbed Mircorosts, LifeCam HD (highly recommended, amazing little webcam. Fast, solid HD video. Grabbed Blue Microphone's Yeti as well as a philips 24" 1080p monitor. Figure if I'm to do this, I'm going large. But still sticking with camstudio and audacity.

Default Re: Camtasia or Camstudio?

I have an old version (XP) of Window Movie Maker and I don't think it will support screen capture videos.

I use Camtasia. I first got Camtasia 5 and was a tad disappointed but 6 really is quite excellent!

Having said that, I did have to revert to WMM the other day as the sound on my digital camera was recorded at a sample rate unsupported by Camtasia and when I processed it it was all out of synch!

Two tips I have found with recording Powerpoint in Camtasia...First, I do not use the embedded Camtasia powerpoint plug in as I found the quality was not as good as making a normal screen recording of the slide show and, secondly, always choose the HD production option as, when using the 'Youtube' option, the quality is very ropey.

I am having just a wee bit of a video/audio lag problem with CamStudio. And I cannot use the DivX codec. Gives me errors. I must say that the settings Josh gave improved it immensely.

Josh - did you say it could be my video card? I am using an older system with a 9800 pro. I know, I know - but the old Barton 2500 works so good...

For what you want to do, I would recommend Camtasia. If it is a simple video you can download a 30 day trial for free and use all of the features. Camtasia allows you to do things like pan and zoom, edit audio and video separately etc.

You don't have to be an editing savant but you should make it look like you put effort into it. Customers appreciate it, and it builds confidence.

There are also a lot of editing issues I see, or rather rendering issues. Most of the time a flicker has to do with either your frame rate being off, or the fact that your computer isn't fast enough to process the information. Screen capture programs of any quality are resource hogs.

I produced a video program teaching people how to use Joomla. I quickly realized how much you can run out of hard drive space, RAM and end up needing a whole new rig just to render your 91 videos on such a crazy project.

But I digress. Check your frame rate and close a few programs.

Some additional thoughts.
There is a good free editor for avi files called virtualDub (I think the first video may have mentioned it but I don't think his thread does.)
with add-ons it will also handle mpg files

To the person with the large files. I would suggest making smaller files and combining them with a frameserver (read up on it at virtualdub.org and avisynth.org to serve the combined file to your flv encoder. Just make sure it will take an avisyth file. (avisynth can be overwelming but writing a script with a few trims is not.)

What's the difference between Camtasia and Camstudio?

I haven't tried either yet, but I see that Camtasia is a bit costly. Camstudio, on the other hand, was a free download I got from somewhere... one of those giveaways, maybe.

I'm thinking of doing some videos to sell/promote products so the program doesn't have to be anything fancy. Just something that enables me to do screen capture, add text and audio, insert images and allow viewers to click to view at their own speed, ie: it doesn't start automatically until the viewer clicks the run button.

The finished product would appear on a web page, just like the ones you see with Camtasia. It would have to be of sufficient size for people to view the contents. I've seen some videos that are quite teeny (about 2 inches square). Don't know what program created those.

Are there any glitches or shortcomings with Camstudio that you know about? Perhaps too big a file size, only works on certain platforms, etc. Or perhaps it's too complicated to use? Useful features missing?

Yes, I know. I could go ahead and start using it and see for myself, but I'm not ready yet and was hoping to get some feedback before I waste time with it.

Your feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Sylvia
Sylvia, for the requirements that you have listed above, I think Camstudio will do just fine. As long as you're not doing any fancy editing or implementing Hollywood-style special effects, Camstudio will be sufficient. If all you need is basic screen capture of what's on your screen (this can be full-screen or only a certain user-defined segment of your desktop), then Camstudio is all you need. When you get more advanced and start craving the special features that only Camtasia has, then you can upgrade, but I truly do not see a pressing need for you to get it right now!

I agree with Paulie...Save the $300 and use Camstudio. Then use the $300 for promoting your videos. After they make the money back, then consider Camtasia.

CamStudio is really limited and techsmith knows it, I would try the 30 day free trial of camtasia and 'feel it out'. Very easy to use once you get the initial hang of it.

Someone might know that it screws up your computer!

After using for a very long time Camstudio, Aplus screen recorder and PCHand Screen Recorder I decided to buy Camtasia 7.1. It's great - works like charm. The only thing I would like to see is the synchronization with Open Office Impress. There is only Power Point synchro.

You write about version 6. Has anyone had an experience with Power Point plugin recording in version 7.1? Maybe it has been improved.

Lightbulb Re: Camtasia or Camstudio?

If you want to capture any kind of video get RealPlayer(free) - it will capture the video and use Windows Movie Maker(free)- you can do anything with either one of these programs completely free - if you want to use Powerpoint or any program such as paint to make the slides you can. There needs to be a complete course on video editing - anyone have any bright ideas...?

I agree 100%. But Camtasia is so simple to use and such high quality, it's almost a no-brainer if you can afford it.

Real Player and WMM both produce very high quality videos. I remember using Real Player just to play videos in early 2000's, and they've always been tops.

Here's a better alternative... use Cam Studio for screen capture
and get Sony Vegas for the editing... it's much better than either
Camtasia or Movie maker and costs a WHOLE LOT LESS than Camtasia.

You can download a full functioning free 30 day trial of Sony Vegas.

Tsnyder
Tsnyder, this is a long time ago. But in case anyone is still searching - EXACTLY what I do. I read about the limitations of CamStudio and wonder, why don't they just edit in editing software? I also use Vegas.

Re: audio, you can also strip the audio from the video editor, and even load into a free audio editor (like Audacity - very easy and effective) to make audio files.

Simple and much less expensive.

I haven't used Vegas, but Camtasia/Camstudio/Windows Movie Maker are some great choices. Sometimes, I think it really just boils down to individual needs, ROI and cost. I've seen some nice work come from studio and movie maker. But again, just depends on someone's needs. Thanks for the tips and input everyone.

I own both and although I like camtasia much much more than camstudio, I agree this is a sensible recommendation for those who can't afford when first starting out. But, seriously consider to get camtasia because of its functionality and plenty of online tutorials.

I own BlueBerry FlashBack and even if I really love Techsmiths SnagIT I must say, FlashBack is far cooler than Camtasia! The editing of a recorded movie is better.

We just downloaded the 30 day trial version of Camtasia and love the results but we got stuck on something we can't find any help for. When my partner/assistant wanted to email me the finished video to look over and approve we cannot open the file. It always appears as a camj file that cannot be played by anything we have or can find.
Can the the finished videos be opened in anyway before publishing them? I mean by anyone other than the camtasia dashboard.
(We love the results and features but it still falls short of Animoto from what we have seen.)

I can't comment on camstudio because i never used it, but i do own camtasia and i find the product to be amazing. I haven't really fully utilized all of its features yet. I guess if you were trying to do a simple screen capture and couldn't come up with the money anything free would do.

Why don't you just publish them privately on YouTube? -only those authorized and who have the link can see them.

I had no idea how in depth doing a screen cast was going to be until I tried to do it myself. Who knew how many different options there were? It was very overwhelming for me.

I was having a hard time getting the codec to show up in the drop down list of camstudio and I tried all sorts of things but couldn't get it to work and without that codec I was pretty much out of luck.

I ended up going with bb flashback express. It is free and very easy to use and has a bunch of great features. Pretty much the same as camstudio. I found it a lot easier to use.

Also for anyone interested, in my search for help with camstudio I came across some great tutorial videos on youtube here: ‪How to Use Camstudio Tutorials (18 vids in Playlist)‬‏ - YouTube

He talks about zoomit, sizer and virtualdub and a BUNCH of other things.

There is more than one way to do a great screen cast so I guess just learn as much as you can and figure out what works for you.

I use camtasia.

I must say that i do think its waaaay over priced. But indeed a great product.

Also i find that without watching endless hours of boring tutorials its hard to use certain aspects of it.

All in all i give camtasia a 3 out of 5.

Cam studio audio never worked for me so i deleted it.

I own CamStudio Pro, but decided to try BB Flashback Express (Free screen recorder - BB FlashBack Express - not an affiliate link). Just completed a video and it came out great! Very easy to use - easier, I think, than CamStudio. Yes, I had some minor editing to do, which I did in Sony Vegas - but any adequate video editing software would be fine.

IF I decided to upgrade, I will probably go with BB Flashback Std ($89) or Pro ($200 - also have 30-day free trial) - and put the $100 savings over Camtasia in my bank account. While Camtasia is obviously the "stnadard," I found BB Flashback to be great! And the Pro version has editing capabilities, as well.
