Camtasia is a reasonably priced, user-friendly and feature-rich pc-based
video editing and production tool that provides users with the capability
to produce high quality videos; regardless if you are putting together
video footage from your camcorder or if you want to capture a software
application’s screen for training purposes, Camtasia will surely give you
more than enough video enhancement firepower to compete in the big
leagues.

Essentially, Camtasia’s main modules are the Player, Recorder, and
Producer including an audio editing module called Dub-It. It also
includes a video compressor that allows you to produce high quality loss-
less video files.
