Is there an ETA for the Camtasia Studio 8 yet? I'm looking to upgrade from 6 but don't want to get 7 if 8 is right around the corner.

I haven’t seen the new version but if the following videos were done inside Camtasia and it is quite possible that it will at least have video filters and improved video titling.Among the most important additions, there is the TSC 2 video codec, which can record more graphical content with higher frame rates, hence at a better quality.

You have most likely used Camtasia like we do here at Autodesk. It is now what I would call a full video editor and can be used .

- Tooltips now show for locked media
- Improved ability to scroll the timeline while playing
- Added ability to specify duration when extending a frame
- Adding ripple moving and trimming of media on the timeline
- Inserting space on the timeline by holding shift and dragging the playhead
- Added option to include under video captions in a variety of outputs
- Improved audio editing for timeline selections
- Keyframes now automatically fit in available space when added to media
- Improved messaging when uploading media to private or password protected folder on Screencast.com
- Fixed an issue that caused extended frames to show incorrect cursor effects
- Added ability to set the default animation duration to instant
- Fixed an issue causing table of contents to not be initially visible
