Can Camtasia Studio filter out backgrounds in video? (not the greensceen effect)

An inspiring survey, but it didn't ask the key question, why I didn't buy the product. 
a) I need to create training videos in an outside environment, then remove distractions from the background.  I've heard of YouTube videos placing bands in city centres and removing all the traffic and pedestrians.  I'm told greenscreen was early technology and now you can filter moving images.
b) My time spent trying Camtasia and a host of alternative programs, is time wasted because I don't have the skills to know what question to ask.  I find I'm buying various software in hope or on a false promise, then finding the words I've read mean something slightly different.  I've sought advice and never found it. 
That's why I didn't buy the product and have currently put my projects on the back burner.
If anyone can answer my question, I'd love to find a product that works.

Hi Dave,

Camtasia Studio cannot do what you need to do with video.

I don't know what program people use to get that effect. And, I haven't seen that effect in person so I can't speculate on any ideas or workarounds, etc.
