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.
