Can anyone tell me what the current version of Camtasia is on the Mac AppStore? I want to buy a license and would prefer to get it from the AppStore but want to make sure it is updated to the latest version 2020.0.3 (or newer).

I had been evaluating the 2020.0.2 trial but found it to have serious issues with UVC Webcam recording (pixilated video / garbled audio / track sizes for audio and video not matching etc).

Thanks.

I have 2020.0.4. but I still have a long list of outstanding technical issues.  I have had to shift one client's series onto the Adobe suite, sadly.

Brad, thanks for responding. Were your issues mainly related to SRT and Sketch Motion features? Those features are not that important to me so I could survive a few months till TechSmith fixes them.

Also, did you evaluate ScreenFlow? What did you think of it? Thanks again.

Yes.  I have developed workarounds for the problems (but they are not ideal) as we just got a new order for 52 videos in 4 languages and the Adobe suite won't cut it.

TBH I didn't look at Screenflow.  Mostly for time constraints and the fact that I've paid for Camtasia and the maintenance contract, and I pay £50 per month for Adobe.  You see where I'm going with this. :)

How did you get a maintenance contract for the Mac AppStore version of Camtasia? I thought you could only get that if you bought the Camtasia from the Techsmith website? Thanks again.

Ah.  My bad.  I didn't realize that they were different.  I bought mine through TechSmith.

By the way, I have had none of the instability issues others have described.

II bought it online from the Mac Store. I expect that I will be notified if there is an update. But also it is doing all I need, so I am a happy camper. (I only used it to prepare videos for my community college courses. So I am probably not pressing its capabilities as others do.)

I don't think you can buy the 2019 version on the appstore anymore. Also, I believe you will have to buy the 2020 version - the appstore usually doesn't have an upgrade path across major versions.
