How does one take screenshots with Camtasia Sutdio 8? Is this not possible directly from recorder? Like for example a hotkey/shortcut?

I know one can use print screen, but that doesn't automatically save your screenshot.
I also know you can capture video, then export frame, but this is extremely inconvenient when the outcome of recording is images =)

I don't think you can with Camtasia...you have to export a frame from the video. I think you need Snagit to do that.

Dave's right! We offer a free trial of Snagit here: http://www.techsmith.com/snagit.html

Or Print-Screen key, paste in Paint, trim, and save as an image file.

Yes, you can do this with File > Produce Special > Export frame as...

That will save the current preview frame as an image.

Hope this helps.

In Camtasia 9 - put the time bar on the shot you want to capture, then under SHARE select EXPORT TO FRAME (or Control F) - name the file, and you're done. Easy peasy.
