Snagit & Camtasia

Camtasia & Snagit Logo


Snagit is a screenshot program that captures video display and audio output. Originally for the Microsoft Windows operating systems, recent versions have also been available for Mac OS, but with fewer features. It is created and distributed by TechSmith, and was first launched in 1990.


Camtasia is a video-based screen capturing software program. It is analogous to using a video camera to record your screen. However, unlike using a video camera, the software is installed on your computer, so your screen captures are directly recorded to a digital video format with higher quality audio.
