Free Camtasia Studio

Screencasting can be very profitable (if you don’t believe me, listen to Profitable Podcasting #6 and know that Don is doing even better now than he was on the call (yes, there is growth in this space, even in the “techie space” if your plan is solid)). The default/defacto/standard screencasting product for the PC is a program called Camtasia Pro. It is currently in revision 5.

It ain’t cheap – but it is very powerful. I’ve been screaming at TechSmith for a Mac version.

I paid full retail for Camtasia 3 a few years back.

Want to get it for free? Download the demo here.

Register it here.

And yes, your registered version via this path works with the version 5 upgrade license.

    Ack! And they *still* don’t have a Mac version! (And yet Mac is the most graphics-friendly platform, still….)

    Do let us know when and if your screaming at them for a Mac product works.

    Man, thanks a lot Paul! This is awesome! I’ve always wanted Camtasia but didn’t want to fork out the cash just yet. And the upgrade is only $149, even better!

    I’ve dinged them dozens of time for a Mac version and it’s fallen on deaf ears and no response or acknowledgment

    I’m using iShowu on my Mac.

    I have been using the free camstudio. Now I try the camtasia studio for my online video production course. Thanks.

  • scott

    Looks like a great deal…basically a 50% off coupon for the full blown pro version…

    Thanks a lot!

    Videos are such great traffic generators for your business…
    probably the #1 traffic driver at the moment…

    Take care,

    Thanks a lot for this. I had the trial version of Camtasia 5 but when it stopped working, I still couldnt justify the price.
    Cheers for now

    I downloaded Camtasia 3 back in Nov 07 – didnt get around to setting it up – now where do I go to be sent a reg key?

  • Martin Fuggle

    I have the same issue – I can’t find a site to get the key. It seems that the offer expired on 7th January 2008. Does anyone know if it is still possible to take advantage of the offer of free Cantasia Studio 3>

  • Jimbo

    … time to update this blog … the reg key offer is defunct!

  • Gerry Humphrey

    From their page “Due to an internet-wide leak of the Camtasia Studio 3 software that was intended exclusively for PC Plus readers, this offer has unfortunately been withdrawn.”

    The have a link for a 30 day trial for Camtasia Pro 5.1 on that page now.

    Techsmith, the makers of Camtasia and Snag-It do have a free product for Mac and PC that will probably meet the needs of many users. As they put it… “The concept of Jing is the always-ready program that instantly captures and shares images and video…from your computer to anywhere.”

    hi all,
    Since camtasia is out of my price range, I investigated Snag It, Camtasia’s younger brother so to speak. I am happy to report, for like $39, you get the ability to do screen captures with audio, and a ton more stuff. I love Snag It.
    Please please check it out, it just might be all that you need in the long run.

  • Peter – Camtasia Guide


    Snagit is excellent screen capture, no doubt about that (I also run the website but the difference is that Camtasia Studio is a “screen recorder”. Snagit is great to capture, text, images, webpages and it can also be used to record what’s happening on your screen but you have no editing capabilities.

    If you are going to work with recordings you should definitely think about investing in Camtasia, you will not be sorry. I will be posting special offers on twitter: @SoftwareGuide

  • paulcolligan

    Well you can visit and note that they have a Mac version or you can go with Screenflow – a more popular screencasting application in the Mac community.
