New in Camtasia Studio 5.1
See the Version History for a full list of new features and fixes in 5.1 and 5.0.
Focus attention with Spotlight and Highlighter callouts
You have two new options for drawing attention to areas of the screen. Spotlight dims everything on the screen except for the part you want to emphasize. Highlighter is like applying a bright, bold highlighter pen to the screen. Both callouts grab attention...and look great!
Add callouts faster, edit them easily
Now you can add callouts with fewer clicks and edit them more intuitively. And if you want to add a lot of callouts with the same style, one after the other, that's much easier, too.
Set the mood with a music track
Open and close your screencast with a theme...or use music to segue between sections. With a third audio track now available on the timeline, it's easy to add background music to your videos.
Put your screen recordings on the iPhone
Steve Jobs plans to ship 10 million iPhones this year. Now you can produce your videos for iPhone and iPod touch users, at just the right dimensions, using a simple preset. Your viewers are on the go, so let them bring your videos along!
Customize FLV videos with ExpressShow
The Flash FLV format is best suited for longer screencasts that contain more motion or camera video. You can now wrap FLV videos in the sleek ExpressShow template. They'll look fantastic...and benefit from full-screen playback, a floating table of contents, custom "about" box, and more.
Organize and present Flash videos with Camtasia Theater
Have a handful of related videos? Here's a great way to present them online! The rebuilt Camtasia Theater makes it super easy to create a customizable Web menu for any of your Camtasia Studio-produced Flash videos. ExpressShow, SWF, FLV, with or without quizzes or hotspotsΓÇöCamtasia Theater can handle them all! And your viewers will appreciate how easy it is to jump between videos using the table of contents.
