TECHSMITH CAMTASIA: From Mobile Device to Camtasia in a Snap!
I was recently tasked with creating some video demos of an app on my iPhone and using them in TechSmith Camtasia 2019. To make the process as seamless as possible, I visited the App Store while on my phone and downloaded TechSmith Capture. (The app is free.)
I started the Capture app and recorded several videos simply by tapping TechSmith Capture on the initial screen.
When I was ready to transfer the videos to Camtasia on my computer, I started Camtasia and chose File > Connect Mobile Device. There are four simple steps in the Connect Mobile Device dialog box. I had already completed step 1 when I downloaded Capture and then used the tool to record a video on my phone.
Step 2, as shown below, required both my computer and my iPhone to be on the same wireless network.
Back on my iPhone, I opened one of the videos using Capture and, from the bottom left of the app, tapped Share.
From the Export to area, I tapped Camtasia.
I pointed my iPhone's camera at the barcode in the Connect Mobile Device screen on my computer and a few seconds later, like magic, the video imported to my computer, into Camtasia, and into the Media Bin. From there, it was a simple matter to add the media to the Timeline, edit, and share.
I had similar good luck exporting regular-old videos and pictures from my roll from Capture (both videos recorded using Capture and other videos that I imported into Capture) to TechSmith SnagIt and TechSmith Relay.
Kudos to TechSmith for making this a truly simple and seamless process!
