Are there any good whiteboards for use with Camtasia... or do you just have to use a paint program?

    Ya, I've always just used mspaint or photoshop.

    If you are any good with photoshop then I'd highly recommend that its a lot easier and has a lot more features for whiteboarding.

      You could create an image if you wish, to write over using Camtasia's own tools like Ryan Deiss did at Continuity Blueprint - The Legend of the Million Dollar Napkin

      Or do it like Jim

      I'm not sure how he pulls that off. I think it's a Powerpoint presentation using the typing text feature

        What you want is a "Wacom" board ... just search for "Wacom" and you'll see what both Ryan, and Jim are using in their videos.

          I already have a Wacom tablet. What I'd like to know is if there is any special whiteboard software... or if most people just draw in a paint program to create this effect (when recording with Camtasia).

            Not sure about "whiteboard" software but...

            You can use any white surface in any application you want. Just create a recording window in nothing but white space and draw away.

            I'd recommend a Wacom tablet as Gary suggested to do the actual drawing.

            Beyond that, try AnnotatePro to give yourself whiteboard-like drawing tools. I prefer it to Camtasia's pen, highlight, and drawing tools...

              Thanks -- can I ask why you prefer it?

                Sure. It runs as a little floating sidebar app and give quick access to all the pen and drawing tools with a color picker that is always visible.

                For the most part, Camtasia's tools will work fine and do most of the same things but are a little harder to get to (unless you use the Hot Keys which I do like).

                I usually use Annotate Pro when doing live drawing during webinars because it is definitely faster and more flexible in this case. And it's "transparency" feature makes it invisible to viewers. It also has an Undo feature...another example of the little things that make it a useful utility for my video toolbox...
