I need to train some employees on how to do some specific steps within Camtasia 8. So, how in the heck do you use Camtasia to record Camtasia. I need to make some tutorials like are used on this site.

Thanks in advance for any help on this!

The thing that may be confusing is that if you have Camtasia open and start the recorder, Camtasia minimizes and gets out of the way. All you have to do it click on it to maximize it and then you can record it.

I also use the previous version of Camtasia Studio to record the newest version of Camtasia Studio. This can get confusing once in awhile but it works for me once I get everything set up the way I need to. Just another suggestion here.

It doesn't work for me. I am using Camtasia 2 for Mac. When I maximize the icon it just goes to the editing screen. Not the recorder. Can you help me?

Can Camtasia Recorder record itself?.


Is it possible to record camtasia itself? I'd like to make an screenrecording how to use camtasia but I can open the recorder only once. So i'd like to record the recorder. Is this possible?
