Choose editing tool

You can choose between different video editing software, depending on how much video editing that needs to be done: Kaltura (in KTH Play), Camtasia or PowerPoint.

Recommended editing tools

As stated on the page Choose recording tools  the two recommended tools at KTH for recording and editing videos are Kaltura Capture in KTH Play, when simpler editing is enough, and Camtasia, when there is a need for more advanced editing.

Kaltura vs Camtasia in short

In Kaltura (KTH Play), the editing options are limited while Camtasia offers a wide range of editing functions.  

Kaltura is free for use while you will need a license to use Camtasia.  

In both editing software, you can:

  • remove unnecessary pauses by editing
  • shorten the video (remove parts)
  • add simple transitions.

In Camtasia, you can also combine different video- and audio clips, perform image- and audio corrections, work with video graphics and titles.  Editing in Camtasia allows you to update your videos, therefore you will be able to use them for a longer period instead of re-recording them.
