Is Camtasia 2018 worth it? All I see are problems compared to version 9. I've had it for about a month. I'm beginning to regret my purchase

Thank you for your reply. Initially I created projects from PowerPoint that worked very well. I have ticket in for a problem with uploaded videos from a Nikon camera. I had used version 7 at an employer and that worked great. But I'm concerned that 2018 has a lot of bugs that previous versions didn't have.

I've uploaded two 90-minute videos from a Soloshot camera to two different projects recently. They've worked really well.

You could always try v9 to see if you like it better. You can get it at:

You may want to review the new features in 2018 to see if you're actually using any of them. If so, you may not want to go back to v9.
