I'm new to Camtasia - and screencapture/webcam videos. How can I record my webcam only (and see myself while I'm recording) on Camtasia 9. All I can do at the moment is a screen recording and a webcam recording - but I can't see the webcam recording until I've stopped recording. I thought this would be dead easy to do!

Daivd I am assuming that you would like to be able to Monitor your webcam along with your screen while recording the screen along with the webcam to see yourself ? This is not possible currently just using Camtasia Studio 9 unless I stand corrected and I have been wrong before. Maybe someone else will jump in and have a suggestion too.

However if this is what you are trying to do then there are free and paid software apps that would allow you to do these things. Might take a look into OBS as it may fit your needs or not.

I would like to see this feature and other users have also requested that TechSmith put this into the software for having this option so maybe it will make the list someday.

Sorry I could not help you out much here. Thanks for posting and you could contact TechSmith Support and it is free to do so and also ask them if there is a way or a work a round they may have. Friendly and honest people too. Information for that is below:

David, perhaps you could record a very small portion of the screen such that it can be hidden during production.

The webcam being recorded separately from the screen, you'd simply delete the screen display when editing the video. You won't be to see yourself during the recording though.
