Get Older Version?

  • Updated 5 years ago
Since I am unable to use other formats other than mp4 for capturing something that is 1.5 hours long, is it possible to get a earlier version of Snagit?   Only one project will waste 5 gigabytes-  If I use an older version then I could use wmv or avi as an alternative.

Hey Terre,

What version are you looking for exactly?

Well I'm not sure but I have the latest version but when my friend was using Snagit, it apparently was an older version.  It gave an option of the type of output to use - you could select the format - e.g. mp4 or avi or wmv, etc.  I'm looking for that version.  Do you know if the previous version will allow that?  This one does not.  It only uses mp4 output - and they are way to big when I am capturing.

Understood Kelly, thank you.  No, he does not have the older version, he is using the latest version now and does not know how to screen capture from previous versions.  

I think what would be most helpful is having the ability to adjust my quality of the video capture.  A lower quality would produce less space while a higher quality will produce more space.  

I appreciate you assistance Mr. Mullins.  Thank you for pointing me to one of the earlier versions.

I'm sorry - that should have read "Ms. Mullins".

Question about downloading an older version.  Do I need to do anything specific with my current version?  Can you have two versions on the computer or do I need to delete one of them?  I forgot to mention that I am using OS X .

Hi,
You can download another version for evaluation purposes, however, you can only have one working copy on your computer at a time (in other words, the one licensed copy that you use on a regular basis.) .

So, Snagit for Windows version 10, 11, 12, which we have been discussing in this topic, is only for Windows. Not for the Mac platform.

As a general note, while Snagit can record video, allow simple cuts, and output to an MP4 file, Camtasia is needed in order to extensively edit the video, which includes changing the output format or changing the quality settings.

Interesting Kelly.  Let me take a look at the cost and features for Camtasia.  Thanks for assisting me!
