Make your best videos using Camtasia!

Camtasia Mastery is for everyone who uses Camtasia to make videos on their Windows PC. From beginners learning what the program is about, to experienced users who want to learn how to learn more about combining animations and using the new behaviors in version 9, this course has loads of information for learners of all experience levels. From beginners to long-time users, you WILL learn how to best use Camtasia.

The Camtasia Mastery sections are divided into several bite-sized videos. If you’re new to Camtasia, just follow the order of the videos for lessons that build on previous information. If you’re experienced with Camtasia, jump to any of the topics you need help with. Most videos are only a few minutes long but the course is packed with over 7 hours of instruction. You can get exactly what you need, when you need it – no more scouring hours of videos to try and find the one nugget of information you need.

Post your questions. I reply to most student questions and comments within 3 days (usually faster). The best questions get video answers. I will create a video to fully answer great questions. Video answers (and questions) will be shared with all students in an optional section at the end of the course.

If you are creating training videos with Camtasia 9, you will learn tricks and tips to save you time and make your videos look great! Enroll now and I’ll see you inside the course.

Previous updates:
The October 2018 update included lessons on the new Camtasia 2018 version. What can it do that version 9 can’t? Should you upgrade? My co-creator Lon Naylor created these five lessons at the end of the course.
The January 2018 update included lessons on the 9.1 update. Lessons 7-10 discuss the four new features added to the 9.1 version update. These include a new way to colorize and edit Camtasia 9.1 library assets, adding device frames like putting your video on a monitor, iPhone, or laptop, using the Alt key to extend frames at the end of clips, and importing PowerPoint slides directly into Camtasia. 
The September 2017 update includes a new Masks section. Lessons 155-160 talk about how to do custom masks within Camtasia using PowerPoint and multiple productions. You’ll learn how to put your video into a circle, trapezoid, or have it play behind words. Check out the free preview of Lesson 156.
June 23rd 2017 update includes a new module (Section 19 – Lessons 146-154) dedicated to green screen setup, recording, and editing.
