Windows 7: Is Camtasia Studio Worth Buying?

Is Camtasia Studio Worth Buying?

Hey Everybody,

I am looking at buying a video editing program to edit videos with, I would be using it for my youtube videos, as well as making nice home movies as well, for me and other people in my family. I am using a JVC camcorder that records in full 1080P if that makes difference with the software. I know I could download windows movie make for free, I used movie maker that came with XP back when i had XP, and also I've used the version you can download from Microsoft. I've been looking at a bunch and I'm am looking at Camtasia Studio for $299.99, I have done my research, looked at user reviews on the program. It looks very easy to use to get effects. If any one here uses this piece of software, please let me know if it's worth me buying for what I am using it for.

I don't use it personally but I know some people that do and they love using it. I use Sony Vegas 12 for video editing. Which I don't use all time. If you do lots and lots of video editing then I would suggest going with Sony Vegas. But if you just edit a few videos then you should get it. 299.99 is nothing when you compare it to 799.99.

I use Camtasia for work. If this is just home video, that you want to look nice and edit it a little bit, maybe add captions etc, then I think Camtasia would be overkill, most 100 video editing suites (Including the latest Nero) are more than capable of editing HD and rendering to youtube size and other formats.

Camtasia is nice though!!
