Paying for Video Review?

Why are you selling us Video Review when the old stuff hasn't been fixed or improved? How about a timer inside Snagit? Why are we paying for Video Review when it should be included in the price? This software in general overall, is not cheap. I feel it should be included. It's like paying for the bun after you've bought the hot dog. 

Why can't we just create our situation in Camtasia/Snagit/Jing and upload it instead of having to pay for Video Review? I don't understand what the difference is. But I'm against paying for something I already have.

Hi Dee

Nobody is forcing you to use Video Review. It's totally optional.

Your last paragraph seems to suggest that you might be misunderstanding what Video Review actually is. TechSmith does offer ScreenCast.com. That service offers a nice easy way to create a totally free account and their products all seamlessly upload what you capture or create to this service.

Video Review is something completely new that they have spent lots of time creating. I'm willing to bet they have a team of folks dedicated to just that product. As such, those folks need to eat and have shelter same as the folks that work on SnagIt or Camtasia.

Video Review allows uploading video content just like ScreenCast does, but the difference is that you are able to gather feedback from clients. Note that I mentioned "clients". The service is intended for folks that are creating videos that are likely being sold to a client, and the clients can comment on suggested changes, likes, dislikes, etc. And those comments are sent back and forth via email messages. That's where it really differs from ScreenCast.com.

Cheers... Rick :)
