$79.00 dollars for an hour and a half ?

That would be expensive for 1.5 hours of One on One training via screen sharing.

Let alone a impersonal training session. How much do you expect the Instructors to bring in?
$1,000, $5,000, $10,000 or more an hour. The more attendees the better?

Presuming that the presenter is capable, that's unfair, Joe. 
If you are an advanced user and the presentation is geared to beginners, then you might not find the session worth it.

However, as a professional magician, I told young magicians that even if a book cost $100, it was a bargain if they found one effect that they could use. if you have one important question to ask and get it answered, the presentation will be a bargain for you.

Just my opinion, but what I told young magicians was true. I think it applies here too.

Well Steve, I’m going to have to respectfully disagree with you on this.

It is my opinion that anybody that is new to video editing will have a difficult time absorbing all that much in a 1 1/2 hour session.

 Many have no idea what everyday editing terminology actually means. This leads to confusion. It's very difficult to form a proper question when you have no idea what your doing to begin with. Or, what the question should actually be.  I understand that they can download a video of the session afterwards. But the price is still far too high.

Why would I say this?

You could join for a free trial. You could also join for a month for only $30 or $35 dollars if you've already had a free trial in the past.

Then, you would have access to a 6 1/2 hour training course for Camtasia 8. You can download exercise files and follow along with the instruction. You can also download all of the lessons for future use.

There is one drawback to the lessons. TechSmith updates Camtasia 8 so often that the lessons are in fact out of date.

But they are Camtasia 8 specific. Someone that is new to Camtasia 8 would gain far more by taking that course than yours.

I repeat, I understand that you need to make money.

 However, If somebody just paid $300 for Camtasia studio.

Do you really need to charge them $79 for a webinar styled "Getting Started" lesson as well?


Regards, Joe

Hi Sharyn,

Thanks for asking! While this particular session is likely not an ideal time for customers outside of North America, as we expand this offering we are planning to schedule future events at different times to accommodate customers in additional time zones.

While we are only planning English language training events, we do have partners that can provide training in other languages (and local training in the UK & Germany). You can see our partner list here:

We also offer customized training sessions for individuals or groups (both online and onsite). If you’re interested in pursuing a customized training session, please contact Kelsey Ambrosier at

Are there other things that we could do to better accommodate your needs (and those of others outside the US)?
