My impression is that Snagit is not a serious tool, but more a toy. A collection of things give me this impression. I couldn't find frame rate control anywhere. The entire subject of controls and settings seems weak. Snagit couldn't find the Realtek analog audio option. It defaulted to the digital audio option which produced no sound. I couldn't find the advertised voice-over feature. The editor seems very weak, appearing to lack clip and join features or tracks. The editor interacted poorly with my nVidea Quadro FX1700 adapter, leaving grey streaks and dashed lines on the screen. The borders (perhaps 5 pixels wide) of the frames contained spurious artifacts, particularly on the left edge. The overall organization of the product seem scattered and disorganized, emphasizing cute graphics over function. Not for me.

Hi Thomas,

Based on your feedback, it sounds like you were looking for a video tool. Snagit is more of an image capture tool with a tiny bit of video capture thrown in. The video capture in Snagit is more oriented around quick videos.

Our video capture tool is Camtasia Studio, that allows you to adjust the frame rate, encoding settings, multi-track editing, voice over, etc. You can find out more here:
