Camtasia Studio is the most expensive screen recording tool in the roundup, but it's also one of the most feature packed. The last time we looked at the app it was Windows only, but the latest versions support Mac OS as well, and allow you to record your entire screen, single applications, or part of your display, save your screencasts in multiple formats, upload directly to YouTube, and more. You can quickly edit audio tracks separate from the video, so you can narrate what you've recorded later and then combine the tracks into a final video, and more.

Main features:

  • Screen recording
  • Mobile video
  • Video customization
  • Multi-track timeline
  • Visual effects
  • Green screen effect
  • Animate content
  • Quick and easy Sharing
