Here's a tip taken from history...as recent as 10 months ago when Camtasia 2022 was released.
Before you upgrade to 2023, ask yourself these questions:
- Can I afford to have certain things not working like before?
- Am I willing to deal with random crashes?
- Am I willing to sacrifice workflows and/or efficiency?
- Am I willing to further test "new features" that may not work as expected?
- Is there critical functionality missing from Camtasia 2022 that is supposed to exist in 2023?
If you hesitated in answering any of these questions, then it's probably a good idea to hold off on immediately jumping to 2023.
The first release of major software versions are always riddled with bugs. It's not just Techsmith products. It exists across all platforms. But in particular to Techsmith, simply go back and look at the various threads respective to each new version. It's a litany of complaints. Or just look at the version history. From the initial release of the major version, there are LOTS of updates that take shortly after the release. This is because of bugs and/or features not fully implemented and/or simply not enough beta testing prior to releasing to production.
I'm not writing this to bash Techsmith. I just said that it occurs across the industry. I'm writing this to everyone that wants to upgrade to the latest and greatest and then is going to come back here and curse the heavens because you encountered a situation that I referenced in my bulletpoints above.
If Camtasia 2022 is working "good enough" for you...then I highly recommend waiting a few months for everyone else to complete the final testing phase. Don't break your workflow or productivity just because there's a shiny new object in front of you.
