Camtasia 2 Update for Mac

TechSmith released version 2.5 of their Camtasia 2 for Mac software. Here are a list of the fixes and improvements:

Enhancements in Version 2.5.0

  • Added a share history window
  • Added Facebook and Twitter buttons in the share history window using the built-in social features of OS X 10.8 and later.
  • Improved capture frame rate by leveraging a new capture method on OS X 10.8 and later
  • Added an integrated color picker and a user preference for those who prefer the system color picker
  • Added a “Mix to mono” option which is useful when all the audio is in the left or right channel, and you’d like it in both
  • Added the ability to lock tracks to prevent edits from affecting the media on the track
  • Added the ability to turn tracks off, which hides the visuals and mutes the audio on the track
  • Added the option to use linear interpolation for key frame actions
  • Fixed an issue where the Media bin thumbnail was black for images larger than 5000×5000
  • Allow user to press Shift key after mouse down in order to make a range selection
  • Added the ability to use the Shift key with the comma and period keys to fine tune a timeline range selection
  • Limit the max width of an arrow to 100 to prevent rendering errors
  • Fixed an issue where the timeline didn’t auto-scroll when dragging the edge of a media clip to extend its duration
  • Disabled context menu items that will not work for offline source files in the media bin
  • Fixed an issue where keystrokes are not recorded correctly when the system is configured with JPN language settings
  • Fixed an issue where the canvas width could be selected but typing would not change the number in the edit box
  • Fixed an issue where a project could get into a corrupt state where it could not be saved or opened
  • Fixed an issue where thumbnails in the media bin could appear stretched
  • Fixed an issue where a freeze region effect is added to entire media rather than a set duration when added from the context menu
  • Fixed an issue where control + click did not bring up the contextual menu for an effect in the asset bin
  • Fixed an issue where repeated use of cut and undo could lead to a crash
  • Fixed an issue where the zoom slider could get stuck at a particular zoom level
  • Fixed performance problems when 2 stacked clips have a freeze region effect at the same time
  • Fixed a crash when exporting an annotation that has a device frame applied to it
  • Fixed an issue where dragging an action to the end of a media does not move it to the end unless you first zoom in on the timeline
  • Fixed a crash when exporting to Screencast.com using a project that contains markers
  • Fixed an issue where not all mask properties were red when in global edit mode
  • Fixed a crash when entering the captions view on systems where the “Arial” font is disabled
  • Fixed an issue where the lock aspect ratio in the Adjust Canvas dialog was not working correctly
  • Fixed an issue where you couldn’t tab between the input boxes in the Adjust Canvas dialog
  • Fixed a crash when trying to split media with multiple actions selected

I’m a big fan of this software and use it in my course development for Clark College and highly recommend it.
