Wow, awesome offer that I'd love to take advantage of. Unfortunately Facecrap (sorry, hehe) is telling me "The message could not be posted to this wall". Is that because it's too long? Has special characters? Mentions leprechauns too many times? I don't know. Facebook isn't smart enough to give me a reasonable explanation. *sigh*
So, even though it's against the rules, I'll post my response here, and keep trying over there (I did at least become a fan):
I've been wishing I could afford it ever since I first tried it 6 months ago. The best option that I've seen for professional quality screen demos and instructional vids. I tested it for doing demos and tutorials for a software program and I found it to be way beyond any other option. There are many other apps out there that will do screen captures, from the free Wink and Camstudio, to VNC-based options like UVNC and TightVNC screen capture, to online options like Jing. All of these have benefits, but Camtasia goes beyond any of them, with great screen capturing options and performance, but more importantly good, functional, and easy to use editing options. That's where it shines for me. What I found in testing is there's really no way to get one single "ideal" take, so good editing is a must. In addition, you need ways to augment and annotate your capture, which Camtasia also does well. Overall, despite the availability of free options, I find that Camtasia is the only thing that can create the level of professionalism I want for my screen capture videos. It's a great app that I would love to add to my toolbox.
