Get Camtasia Studio v3 for free
« on: November 21, 2007, 11:37:59 AM »
I know its a slightly older version but Techsmith is making this version available for free and since their products are so well developed an older version may work well for some.

Camtasia is the complete professional solution for recording, editing and sharing high-quality screen videos. It's easy-to-use, affordable, and is the quickest and most effective way for you to communicate.

Read up on getting the license and a link to the download:

Just thought members here could benefit from this offer.

Dang! I wish I'd known about this before I bought BBFlashback... Not that I'm not happy with BBFlashback, but FREE has a nice ring to it! Thanks for posting this, Chris, downloading as I type this (what can I say? I'm a software junkie).

Plus the free version allows you to qualify for the upgrade pricing if you choose to goto the newest version.

Sweet! I just checked mouser's screencasting review, and this free version is the "new and improved" one due out later in the month the review was done  :Thmbsup: I really don't need this, but it's installed now! Not too tempted to upgrade ($149 US) but will be comparing it to BBFlashback Pro.

PS mouser's screencasting review gave two enthusiastic thumbs up to Camtasia 2.

and we're one better than that with v3

I have been using SnagIt for years and recently started checking out Camtasia Studio.  Great products and a great company to deal with.

Yeah - thanks for clarifying that, Chris. That was the point I was trying to make: that this free offer is for a newer, more feature rich, version than the one that mouser raved about in June 2005  :Thmbsup:

 :(  Just a short post to note that the free license code provided by Tech Smith doesn't work and the only response I received from an imquiary is a list of FAQ type of problem fix suggestions none of which are applicable.  :down:

This is probably a dumb question, but are you using exactly the same user name to register the program that you entered when you downloaded the installer?  :huh:

So, since version 2, wich was merely 2½ years ago, there has been version 3, 4 and now 5 - three versions, each with the upgrading price 50% This version 5 does not sound as a good investment... can it even be more expensive?!!!!

Heh, heh - good point Curt. However, Camtasia 3 is a very fine application in its own right, and I see no need to upgrade to version 5.

if the offer is still valid, try requesting a new key. also just a suggestion but try copy-paste the serial number instead of keying-in yourself. for the record, mine works fine..

Yes - lanux is right - if you've tried pasting the serial in perhaps it's time to request another key. I just checked and the offer is still valid. This will probably be quicker than going through support!

Has it taken anyone else longer than 24 hours to receive their serial number?

I received my serial within minutes of submitting the web form. Veign posted about this at 9:37 am PST and I received my key at 9:43 am PST... That is, as I was typing my response to Chris' original post.

Thanks Veign! :D
