Answer by Akash Shah

No, the statement is incorrect. TechSmith is the company that owns Camtasia, not Autodesk.

I am using Camtasia Studio 7 on Windows 10 but .Net Framework 3.5 is missing this component to have been installed, when i try to select 'Produce and share' option but the menu is disabled, once again, when i try to close this application but it greyed out. How can i solve this?

Answer by Pooja Bajaj

The issue you are experiencing is likely due to the fact that you do not have .Net Framework 3.5 installed on your Windows 10 computer. To solve this problem, you will need to install .Net Framework 3.5 on your computer. You can do this by going to the Microsoft website and downloading the appropriate version of the .Net Framework for your computer. Once you have installed the .Net Framework, you should be able to select the 'Produce and Share' option and close the application without any issues.

The downloads available on Informer pages are genuine. What you download has been verified by viruses and marked as safe. However, the software's license is not free. As far as I know, Camtasia is a shareware product which means you have the possibility to download and use it for 30 days as a trial only, then it requires purchasing in order to function properly.


To find additional information, use the official website of the application: https://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.html

Unfortunately, animated GIF files can't be added into Camtasia. Sure, you can import the file, but it will be as a static image. There is no animation at this point. I have checked the official forums and the answers is the same. The latest version of Camtasia doesn't support animated GIFs to be embedded into timeline. I have tried adding a GIF image (as shown below), but it's static. There is no setting to make it animated. Camtasia only allows you to EXPORT to GIF.

Are there special plugins for video effects in CS or should I find them in program's interface? How to use lens flares and light effects in Camtasia Studio?

R
Answer by Robert Polubinski

There are no plugins for Special Effects, but Camtasia already has some effects that you can apply to your videos. Once you load a video, drag it to the Timeline and then click the Visual Properties button. A new section will open, then scroll down a little until you see the Visual Effects section. To enable an effect, tick it and then scroll up and press ADD Animation.

I can't rotate videos in Camtasia Studio. It seems to be very easy but I really can't find the appropriate settings. Can you help?

R
Answer by Robert Polubinski

You can apply all kind of transformation options for the loaded videos once you get them to your timeline.


The procedure is as follows: add the video from the Clip Library then drag it on the timeline. Activate Visual Properties and locate the Z axis (as shown in the image). That's the degree angle that your video will be rotated inside the canvas. If the canvas is too bit, you can increase it using the button on the upper-left area of the Camtasia application. Input the angle in the Z field and the video will rotate. The aspect ration button enlarges or reduces the size where the video fits. Make it a little bigger to be able to rotate the video while keeping all the elements visible.

While I cannot provide a guarantee for individual downloads, if you download Camtasia from the official TechSmith website, it should be safe and free from viruses. It is always recommended to download software from trusted sources to minimize the risk of malware or viruses.

To open the download manager in Internet Explorer, you need to press the Ctrl + J key combination. This is also available for Opera, Google Chrome and Firefox. After you opened the manager, right click on the program and choose Resume.


If you are using a Download Manager tool, you need to open it and resume the download from there.

What should I do to prevent Camtasia Studio from closing? Is it a bug? May I fix it?

A
Answer by Alex Urbach

Yes, it's known that Camtasia is somehow unstable. Even if the latest version is installed, most users will have issues with it because of various reasons. Mine crashed continuously because the XviD codec that I used, had wrong parameters and wasn't updated to the latest version. However, always use the Check for Updates because this way you will have the latest version installed and your bug might be fixed with a new installation.


To check for updates go to Help > Check for updates. Make sure you are connected to the Internet before activating this function.
