Camtasia Studio

Looking For A Cheap Camtasia Alternative?

Rest easy, you know you have come to the right place!

As you may have seen in a lot of our other posts, we make it our business to test out the new stuff on the market to see whats working and whats not, in terms of finding viable alternatives to expensive software on the market.
Enough chit-chat. Lets talk shop!

So Mylo, what is this amazing software you speak of?

Alright I get it you don’t want to wait. For those of you who want to go straight to see the product and not read my awesome, in-depth review (Im crushed), you can check it out here.

That software is called Video Motion Pro, and I am using it for many reasons.

But first, if you want to skip to the highlights.

 The Features:

As you may have seen in the video above, there are many great features about video motion pro. I will list them all below

 

1. It is one of the best screen recording software solutions on the market right now

I like VMP because of the ease of use when doing screen recording.  Sure, there are free versions out there, but like anything you get what you pay for.  I have both Camtasia and VMP, and in all honesty I use them both. The reason for that is I got Camtasia at a very very deep discount, which ended up costing me less than I even paid for VMP (it was a special one time sort of deal with app sumo). If it wasn’t for this blog, and the fact that I already owned Camtasia, I would just be sticking with VMP all the way.  It does really smooth and clear recordings, and you can do a wide range of editing to the recording when you are done.

2. It is a great green screen video editing software

Thats right, VMP can even do green screen editing!
I just fire up the software and select a background that you want to use as your green screen footage, and viola. It really is that easy! My first time using it did see me fumbling around with it for a little while, but a cleverer person than I would do the smart thing and just watch the instructional video before firing it up and you would be up and running in no time!

3. It has cool intro video templates

I probably sound like I am 12 again saying it, but that’s probably the best way to describe it! The intro videos are pretty cool, and there is a wide range of them. Just plug in your text, and change a few settings and there you have it. Simple, no-fuss intro videos at the click of a button.

4. It ALSO Has Cool Lower Third Templates

I’ve gone and done it again. But I don’t really care. These lower thirds are cool dammit! Check them out for yourself because the range is significant.  Again, its as simple as choosing a template and entering in your text.  Its a great time saver compared to using something like adobe after effects or photodex proshow producer.

5. Finally, it has an awesome youtube outro maker!

You know those really trendy and interesting videos that you see at the end of all the youtube videos flying around these days? Well VMP can help you make them with (you guessed it), a significant library of built in youtube outro templates that you can simply add text and edit to your requirements.

6. It is a mac-compatible alternative to camtasia studio

I run everything off my mac, and I hate it when people tell me that I should be doing other wise when developers are catching up and finally learning that there is a whole market out there other than just PC users.  Don’t get me wrong, I have a PC and run a lot of tools of there too, but I prefer my Mac over PC and day of the week.  So I am qualified and happy to tell you that VMP is a GREAT camtasia alternative for mac! If you my mac users don’t want to fork out for the pricier camtasia, just get VMP instead and you will not be disappointed.

Final Thoughts

VMP is a great software that can replace camtasia for many reasons.  Offcourse, cam is still a great software and I use it often, but if you are looking for something cheap that does not skip on functionality then VMP is your go to tool to add to your arsenal.
