Promising new features to make it easier than ever for individuals and teams to quickly create great looking videos, the new version has a host of new features that further simplify video editing, including new features and improvements to visual effects, audio effects, and overall workflow.
Camtasia is the software I use to edit the videos I record for iTWireTV, and although it has a higher price than competing screen recording software, Camtasia 2021 offers a video editor too, packed with features, that make the price absolutely worthwhile.
There is also a much lower yearly update fee, currently AUD $73.04 at time of publication, that ensures you can affordably upgrade to the new versions each year – and it’s around half the price of the regular upgrade fee to go from one version to the next.
“This makes it all the more important to have tools that enable efficient, uncomplicated video production. With Camtasia 2021, we are meeting the demands with a series of feature updates that streamline the overall workflow for video projects, enable polished results, and provide relief for employees in the changed daily work routine.“
TechSmith also has a wealth of free videos and tutorials to make video and audio capture and editing as easy as possible.
So, what are some of the new features?
We’re told the new version “also addresses some of the most common customer requests for visual effects and audio settings, such as 75+ new modern transitions, audio effects to help emphasise the narrator over a music track, Motion Blur effect, and Corner Rounding, to name a few.”

In this new version, it is now possible to create your own elements with such easily customisable properties, which is especially important when it comes to branding and working in a team.

General workflow and performance improvements:
Overall, numerous workflow and performance improvements have also been made to make it even easier for users to work with Camtasia on a daily basis, alone or in a team.
Custom assets for you and your team
Expanded control and customisation of video assets through Quick Properties.
Fast Editing: Proxy Video
In order to display and edit large and high-resolution videos smoothly, Camtasia 2021 now offers the option to use proxy video. These temporary copies can be edited quickly due to their low data volume, and are then returned to the original HQ recording.
Improved representation of grouped assets
“Groups” have long been a proven way in Camtasia to organise sections and items on the Timeline. Instead of expanding them directly on the Timeline as before, groups in Camtasia 2021 are now displayed in their own tabs when opened, allowing you to open multiple groups at once. This is especially useful for complex and nested elements.
Clear organisation and sharing: Standalone project files
All files used for a specific video project are now combined into a single, central project file. This can be quickly shared with colleagues, transferred to another computer, or archived.
Camtasia 2021 is now available on www.techsmith.com for Windows and Mac for USD $249.99 MSRP (AUD $365.19 at time of publication) in English, French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Users with previous versions can upgrade at the TechSmith site for USD $139.99.
TechSmith also has a range of other great software which you can see here.
