Capture Screenshots Directly into Camtasia Projects

I spend a lot of time in TechSmith’s Camtasia when I’m building my Pluralsight courses. I’ve been using it for years and am a huge devotee. (disclsure that I get a free licnese as a Microsoft MVP but would willingly pay for it). often decide while editing that an image would be handy. I usually have to go grab a screenshot, save that file. Then import that file into my camtasia project and then put it into my video.

I also happen to use TechSmith’s SnagIt for my screen captures (same disclosure re free license and same but I would pay for it for sure!).

I only just discovered that there are a slew of output extensions for Snagit and one of them is Camtasia.

Here is a 30 second video (that I created in Camtasia of course) of how it works.
