I’d like to create tutorials for my partners to show them the process in case I get hit by a train, a meteor hits me, I get abducted by aliens, I get swallowed by a whale… or I just get sick for a week.

    Love your blog – read it religiously and base many of my software buys on your reviews –

  • I want this: it’s a very powerful application. My wife will be delighted: she’ll be able to make most attractive presentations to give during her lessons.
    And I could learn to make tutorials, as an additional skill in my work

  • I’m a Mac consultant, and have a lot of clients who’ve switched from Windows to Mac, and a lot of new iPhone/iPad users. I’d use Camtasia (a great application, by the way) to create learning sessions for these clients. It doesn’t make sense for them to pay my hourly rate to learn the basics when I could create a simpler way for them to learn.. with the advantage that they could repeat lessons at need.

  • I would love a copy for teaching Macintosh tutorials.

  • I would use it for teaching – scrivener for speeches, mindmapping for speech writing, research in evernote etc. :)

  • This would be extremely useful for making tutorials for an elderly Mum just getting into computing as well as other older friends who are equally not too technology minded (i.e. it would help me tremendously in my unofficial post of tech support for the silver surfer set). Maybe I could even get into posting these tutorials on the web for wider use.

  • I dont have a “heightened sense emotional connect story” to win this one, I simply Camtasia for getting my job done, as its one of the requirements I find myself every other day, being in web services industry.

  • I come from China and I used snagit from the same company before. I am new to mac. I heard Camtasia for Mac is a very good screen recorder.

    Unlike windows, Mac is the heaven of photo or video software. I got my first mac mini one week ago. I really like some softwares, but the price blocked me. Camtasia for Mac is also expensive for Chinese people. I bought snagit this year for $50, it is the highest price software I bought.

    I am a software volunteer and I like to share software tips with others. I used “wink” ( in windows to make tutorials. I don’t find free one in mac to do such thing. So I really want to use Camtasia for Mac to make good mac software tutorials.

    If I am lucky to get a copy of Camtasia for Mac . I will do such thing:

    1. make a complete “Alfred” tutorial for Chinese people. Alfred is wonderful!
    2. make a tutorials of “Forklift” for Chinese. Forklift is a awesome file manage and ftp client. It has many hidden powerful feature. I want to show the power of it.

  • Both private as in my work I am familiar with products from TechSmith.
    Camtasia for Mac is really their best.
    I really would like to have a copy of that which enables me to make great tutorials.

  • Every one of my clients tells me I’m an ‘amazing teacher’ when it comes to showing them how to use the web to build their business. I teach marketing, WordPress, social media, email marketing, etc often. And many of my clients have asked me if I’d do videos. I’ve used Jing a bit and doing video tutorials works well for me and my clients. I’d love to chat a copy of Camtasia for a number of reasons. And feature I’m most excited to use – being able pan in on focus areas. And really, all the editing features.

  • I’d add it to the list of tools I use to make the world a better place.
