Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac are software suites for creating video tutorials and presentations directly via screencast, or via a direct recording plug-in to Microsoft PowerPoint created and published by TechSmith. The screen area to be recorded can be chosen freely, and audio or other multimedia recordings may be recorded at the same time or added separately from any other source and integrated in the Camtasia Studio component of the product. Both versions of Camtasia started as enhanced screen capture programs and have evolved to integrate screen capture and post processing tools targeted at the educational and information multimedia development marketplace.
