Techsmith is about to release version 5 of Camtasia Studio, their excellent screencasting product. Betsy Weber is going to be introducing a new feature each day from now until the release date on October 9th, and first up is a feature called SmartFocus. Troy Stein, Camtasia's product manager, has a good screencast (how else?) about the feature, and he sounds really excited about it. I'm not sure how well this will work for library-type screencasts; I worry that the zooming might detract from the whole production, but maybe not. I haven't had a chance to try the beta of this release as sadly it won't be compatible with Win2K, which is what I'm still running on the office machine.
