Unsure of why all the low rated reviews but it works perfectly for me. I’ve been using Snagit for many years and this app is a perfect compliment to my desktop program. Maybe some expect too much or really don’t understand what they are doing or attempting to accomplish. It even works well with older versions of Snagit like version 11.
Today, I thought my task was simple: Record a short video on my iPhone, upload it to Dropbox and email the link. The upload didn’t work. Neither did the upload to Evernote. Next best... Import into iPhoto. MOV file not recognized. What? I opened Camtasia.... Of course I couldn’t see my iPhone when I clicked on “Import.” But then... like magic... a note on the screen telling me to download “Fuse” from the App Store if I wanted to import video from my phone to Camtasia. There was also a giant QR Code. I am VERY skeptical. I don’t like to be told to download Apps. I was more suspicious when I saw the App was only rated 3.1. But I read the reviews. The bad reviews were irrelevant and the good reviews seemed genuine, describing the App exactly as I needed it to work. So I did it. I downloaded Fuse. When I opened it, I was asked to allow all sorts of permissions. They all made sense given I was sharing data between my phone and my computer. I only said “No” to “Notifications”... That did not prevent the App from working. Next... That giant QR Code? The App prompted me to hold my phone screen up to the QR Code on my computer. In an instant, the two devices were connected for Camtasia. The best method I have ever seen. From there I simply selected the video clip I wanted to “Share” with Camtasia and, in less than a minute, there it was... on my laptop. I could just save it as an mp4 and upload it to Dropbox or, since I’m in Camtasia anyway... I can maybe make a few adjustments... Some background: For years Camtasia for Mac has been my “go to” program every time I need video. A one-second clip for Twitter... or a 20-minute interactive lesson with multiple cuts, system sound, added music, voiceover and annotations... Camtasia is easy, yet, it has enough complexity to challenge users to continually push their creativity. I highly recommend it.
App help lots
After many calls to support, all I get is that the app doesn’t connect to Snagit anymore, and they have no idea why, and no solution “sorry, Fuse is a weird program with issues that we can’t diagnose or fix”. Gee, thanks.
I have Camtasia on my computer and wanted to use this app to record screencast videos from my iPad. Wish this feature is available as the infrastructure is set up in Fuse.
Keep getting connection errors, even after following instructions to make sure everything's on the same network. Techsmith online help isn't helpful. The app used to work, but not anymore. Big gap between techsmit marketing and app implementation.
I was able to install this in a couple minutes and have it sync up to my surface Pro and share images and videos that I recorded on my iPhone and all I used was the Fuse app. Transfer was pretty fast.
This app is awesome and super helpful. I work in I/T. I can quickly take a picture of a problem and send it to my laptop. I annotate it and resize the image. Then send it to who needs to see it. Beats describing something over the phone. Used Snag it! for years. A must have for me!!
Don't get this app because you can't record your screen.Cant edit your pictures from your library.
I cant open library files also after last update
