Default Camtasia Free Edition

Hi

Anyone have any tutorials on using the free edition of Camtasia.

I have it just about sorted and have produced a 15 minute tutorial video which is great.

However, whenever I try to upload to YouTube, i get a message saying the file is too big.

Just wondering what settings etc are best used or if there are any tutorial vids for the free edition that would be useful?

James

What file format are you using, and what frame rate?

Now you've got me!!

To be honest, I was just playing about with it and produced this really decent tutorial!!

I never really altered frame rates etc but I saved it as a .avi

Off to the "day job" shortly but any advice would be appreciated. I'll check back in tomorrow morning.

Kind regards

James

Youtube only takes 10 minute videos.

You are going to have to break that into 2 chunks.

You can output different formats from Camtasia. You want to output a FLV or Flash video format to upload to YouTube.

Before you begin recording, you should select the YouTube settings so you get the best format for YouTube.

I personally thing Camtasia is a pain in the butt and prefer UTipU.com It's free and super easy to use. You will get a watermark at the end of the video, so if you can't live with that, go with Camtasia. Also, Camtasia is far superior for editing video's, laying down music tracks, etc. UTipU is more down and dirty screen capture, but it fits most of my needs.

If you click on my signature, you will see an example of the UTipU video. It's not the best video I've ever made, but at least you can see what I'm talking about.

Free edition of Camtasia:confused:

Are you talking about Jing?

If not, I would be curious to see what is the free version.

Thanks

AVI is going to yield way to large a file size - try MP4 or WMV for upload to YouTube. On the "produce movie" settings, lower the frame rate down as low as possible without the picture looking jerky or strobed. 15fps is the maximum setting I would use for Camtasia and YouTube. This is a good setting to use anyway as YouTube is based on NTSC, so 15fps is near as dammit half NTSC and should play well.

From a marketing perspective this can be quite an intelligent strategy. More videos, more spread, more entry points

I don't know if he is talking about Camstudio or Camtasia. There was a free version of Camtasia 3.0 (complete with license serial number) that the folks at Techsmith were giving away to get people using Camtasia.

Then Techsmith would give an upgrade from it to the present version at the upgrade price $149. instead of the full $299.

That's how I bought mine.

:-Don

And yes Camtasia will output the file as an MP4 - much smaller than an avi.

Thanks for the replies guys.

In the free version, I only seem to have the option of recording video to SWF or AVI.....any thoughts??
