I have used the trial version to make a video trailer of a game I'm
about to release . In the video I have used screen recorder to capture the game play and the inbuilt library assets provided with Camtasia. So can I publish this video on Youtube and wherever needed for my game?

based on other posts on this forum, and the CS License Agreement, I do not believe you can do what you want

the trial is for "evaluation purposes only"; publishing and commercial use is [I believe] prohibited]

best strategy would be to purchase and use as needed

but perhaps contact TechSmoth Customer Service for further clairification

Thank you for replying. Yes even I read that line but in this following post https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/camtasia_studio_7_trial_version_template_issue it is stated we can use it. So was confused whether or not we can do it with trial version.

That's not the only post that Techsmith Employees have givin users permission to use trial version videos anyway they wish. I've seen several postings like this one.
https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/camtasia_trial_version_for_commercially_use?topic-re...
These are old responses that are no longer valid. They restrict commercial usage only.

Techsmith should probably remove all the misleading responses in this forum and make it perfectly clear what their current policy is to avoid confusion.
 
I also think it would be ill advised for Techsmith to alienate a possible customer  by starting a legal procedure against someone over a trial version video posted online. Especially with the conflicting policy posts on their own user forum.  But that's my opinion.

Hi Vibhav,

Kayakman is correct, the trial is for evaluation purposes only.

I do see there has been conflicting information over the years and I am trying to correct that and remove/change/update any posts in this forum that do not currently adhere to our current End User License Agreement terms.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. And, I apologize for any confusion this might have caused.
