Poor wabcam quality and no support for audio interface

Techsmith, you need to get your stuff together. On Camtasia for Windows I can choose my webcam resolution and get good quality. I can also record audio through my USB audio interface. Camtasia for Mac? No on both counts.

I work for a company who does video courses, and I can't recommend Camtasia for Mac because of these issues. Poor quality webcam video and lack of support for USB audio interfaces is unacceptable, particularly when nearly every other option supports these things.

Are these things on your radar? Camtasia for Windows is excellent, probably the best there is! The Mac version is simply inexcusable. Perhaps when it was still cheaper than the Windows version, but not now.

Totally agree with you and I can't recommand Camtesia as well in my YouTube Tuto or my private courses.
Poor video quality, no wthite balance, color correction...
Impossible to record video + Screen except with bad video quality (No Thunderbolt allowed, DSLR, no DSLR, Logitech 920). Impossible to check sound, no vu-meter etc.

Great for animations but absolutly impossible to work correctly about video and sound.
It's competitor Screenflow 7.1.1 is nearly professionel about sound and video and not so far from Camtesia 3.1.1 about animations. I really hope Camtesia is going to wake up.

Maybe Camtesia could explain how usefull are so powerfull Behaviors and Animations... when you can't record live with Thunderbolt ? How can we make quality tutorials ? How can we make quality courses ?
I love Camtesia Animations and Behaviors but do we have to sacrifice Video footage ?

I guess Camtesia thinks Private online courses and YouTube keywords : “Tuto“ Tutorial“ 'Online course“ “Free course“ are not big enough Niches to get clients :(
