Record Your Screen
To start a recording, click the Record button at the top of the tools panel. This opens the Camtasia recorder, which by default, is set to capture everything that happens on your screen.
Customize Recording Settings
#1 Choose to record the full screen, or select a custom region to record.
#2 Choose other inputs to record along with the screen. Options include webcam, microphone audio and system audio. Select the down arrow or double arrows next to each to choose a specific microphone or webcam.
#3 Click Start Recording to begin.
Finish Recording (Windows)
When you’re finished recording, click the Camtasia recorder icon in the taskbar, then the stop button. If you need to re-record, choose delete to start over.
Quick Tip: Press “F10” to stop a recording, or “F9” to pause/resume a recording.
Finish Recording (Mac)
To finish the recording, click the Camtasia icon in the Apple menu bar, then click “Stop Recording.” Or, if you need to re-record, choose “Start Over.”
Quick Tip: Press “CMD+OPTION+2” to stop a recording, or “CMD+SHIFT+2” to pause/resume a recording.
Trim out Mistakes
Often we record a little extra at the beginning and end of a recording. To remove the extra content, drag the end of the clip “in.” This is called trimming. If you trim too much, drag the clip back to restore your video.
It’s good to note that any edits you make on the timeline, won’t affect your original recording in the media bin.
