Editing video captures

Why can't we do simple editing in video captures besides trimming the video.

I know there is Camtasia but if you're giving customers the possibility of video capturing your screen don't take off ALL of the editing options. Or just don't allow video capturing. It makes snagit weak.

I agree, but we're a very small minority

Hi Erwann - thanks for using Snagit and sharing your comments. What kind of videos are you looking to make with Snagit (purpose and audience)?

Hello Daniel and thanks for getting back to me.

My company lunched a major upgrade of our software with a brand new interface. Even though it's supposed to be more user friendly, our customers are still set in their old ways and it can be challenging for most of them to make new habits.

On top of that we still have some minor bugs that can be easily fixed with a few workarounds however it adds up to the already challenging upgrade and I need to be able to make quick tutorials tailored for each of my clients and their situations as we do not work via remote access.

Surely I can make it all screenshots, but having the ability to record my dual screen setup without being able to do minor edits such basic annotations (text, arrows, steps) is so frustrating to the point I'd have been glad to pay the same amount of money I paid even without screen recording.

Again I know that Camtasia does this but I don't need most of what it does, really. It feels like Snagit is just a teaser for Camtasia and it's so annoying to now have to find another software, such as Filmora to do what it would have been simple to do with Snagit which I love using.

Anyway, thanks for your time. I hope it'll come someday. For now I'm gonna have to look elswehere.

Best regards,
Erwann

I divide my time been taking screenshots in and doing annotated videos for support issues.

I use Snagit for the first task and FlashBack for the second because while SnagIt can record video Flashback allows a superb degree of control for annotating them; and while Flashback will let you extract a recording frame as a screenshot it's not easy to snapshot a single screen.

Horses for courses.  I see no purpose in SnagIt video when Camtasia sits in the same stable but others swear by it.  I just swear at it.

It'd be a boring world if we all agreed on everything though.
