This software absolutely sucks

Microsoft syndrome. Each update further complicates the use of the application. As with what was once very useful software from Microsoft (excel, work, etc.), camtasia has evolved: If it's not broken, fix it until it is. 

I don't use it all the time. When I do need it, I have a hour or more fooling around with whatever changes have been made since the last update. 

I'm looking for alternatives.

While I'm certainly not shy about complaining when I find deficiencies or bad design in the product, I think you're being a bit harsh. If you have specific problems with it, the people here and in Tech Support will help. Just saying that something sucks and is overly complicated doesn't help you or anyone else.

There are certainly alternatives, but I think you're likely to find that they're much more complicated and more expensive. It seems to me that Camtasia is a modestly-priced product that "punches well above its weight", even with the issues it has.

That doesn't mean that it can't be made better and we're trying to influence the direction of future releases.
