I've just bought the new version of Camtasia Mac and it's a big improvement on the previous version which was so annoying I ended up using ScreenFlow instead. However, although the new version is much better it's still not nearly as good as the PC version. I realise you'll have different code bases but surely you should have taken the functionality of the PC version as the specification for the Mac version. There are areas where it lags very far behind and is clunky to use.

Do you foresee any time when the functionality of the PC and Mac will converge?

I would also mention that ScreenFlow is still much easier to use in a few respects: cursor effects being one. Having to apply a cursor effect to the entire timeline is not good.
Being able to save custom annotations is good, but what a pity you can't group elements to be able to copy, move, save etc.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate honest and open feedback like this. I would like to better understand what parts of Camtasia Studio on the PC you would like to see in Camtasia for Mac? They are two different code bases, and each platform provides some unique characteristics. However, we do want to provide the most important functionality in both products. If you wouldn't mind sharing more details about what those are, it would help.

As for cursor effects in Camtasia for Mac, are you aware that you can customize the length of any effect you add to media very easily? Here is a video that shows how:
