When it comes to recording your PowerPoint Presentations, or videos in general for that matter, there are quite a few choices of software to use; Camtasia, CamStudio and Jing to name a few. But when it comes to editing and producing your videos Camtasia is by far the best I have experienced.

Camtasia do offer a free trial but you will eventually have to purchase it, unless of course you’re lucky enough to win it in competitions such as the one I’m holding during the challenge ;) and some will find it expensive, however in my opinion it is worth every penny as long as you’re going to use it.

There are free options available which I demonstrated last week in the video, Using Free Software To Record Your PowerPoint Presentations.

In this weeks video I show you how to record your PowerPoint Presentations using Camtasia, how to edit them, add the bookends that I include in my videos and a few other features that Camtasia offers.

Recording Your PowerPoint Presentations With Camtasia

NOTE: All of my videos are now in HD and can be watched on full screen, simply hit the button in the bottom right corner of the video.

During the video I mention my bookends and where to get them. The very first one “A Video Presentation From Barry-Wells.com” I had made on Fiverr and the other bookends, “Welcome” and “Take Action Now” I got from Vox Flair, that is my affiliate link but the bookends I used are free of charge ;)

If there is anything that I haven’t covered that you would like to know about please let me know in the comments below and I’ll answer to the best of my ability or if need be I’ll create another video giving you a demonstration.

There’s still a week to go until the end of the challenge and already some people have submitted the Four videos needed to qualify for the Traffic Competition that I’m holding for the period of the challenge. If you’re one of those people then please feel free to add a fifth video if you’d like to :)

I’m also really pleased by the fact that we have encouraged people to start creating videos for the first time and I do hope that they continue creating them once the challenge is over :cool:
