I've come back to Camtasia after using other tools for several years, and all in all I'm reasonably happy with the product. However, I've also found a number of annoying things:
Absolute paths to assets: I've seen in the forums that a whole lot of people have complained about this for at least the last four years, and for me this is something of a show stopper. Had I known about it before I bought the product I would have spent a lot more time looking for alternatives. We are several people that need to share projects, and importing and exporting is not an option. We want to use version control, with different checkout directories and operating systems. And besides, how hard can it be? If the asset is in a sub directory strip the prefix.
Incorrect handling of decimals: the UI seems to use the American way of writing decimal numbers with a point exclusively, but it accepts input only in the current locale (with a comma in Sweden) which means that it gets the input wrong when people use the point they see in the current number.
Different views for the media bin and library makes for an inconsistent user experience. The library lacks previews making it useless for anything you didn’t put there yourself, and the media bin lacks categories, and can only sort on one key. The media bin doesn’t seem to be using a stable sorting algorithm, so when I try to get it to sort on name then type to make up for the lack of categories I get a mess. (Not sure about the last part, haven’t had time to test it thoroughly.)
No way that I’ve found to select where recordings are stored or their name. At least the powerpoint plugin can open a file dialog.
Can’t record the camera on its own. Making a small screen recording and then delete it works of course but is such a hack.
