I just upgraded to Camtasia 3.0 on Mac. but, I am disappointed to see that all hype and flashy video promos have not lived up to any major new features.

The video editing part has become strenuous, as the dark tracks with gray audio make the eyes water if you are editing an hour long presentation.

Those stitch lines between the cut pieces is the most annoying part.

I would like to see an option to change the track colors to suit each editor so you don't go blind looking at dark tracks for hours while editing.

The handles to select the section to be deleted is a step backward. Also, put the ripple delete on a function key so we have to press only on one key. If you are editing an hour-long video, the fingers can go numb.

I hope some one can contact me as I have many more suggestions and my fingers are getting tired typing this text which is barely readable.

We need a big box with proper text size and color to post our messages.

drniknikam@gamil.com. Visit my Youtube channel NIK NIKAM, and see he videos created using Camtasia.

I like Camtasia, but I may go back to 2.0 and request a refund.

Not much thought has gone into the making the editing part easy and smooth. I have produced more than 1000 videos and I know that video editing part is the most time consuming and demanding.

It would be helpful to post each of these separately.

I'm definitely voting for changing the background color or anything that would make the UI easier to see.

But I really count on the stitches to let me know where I made cuts. So, while I'd vote for most of this, I can't vote for all of your suggestions.
