How to Install Snagit 2020 - Software Focus



  • SSA-Ed
    I installed it to my A:\ drive in less than 8 or 9 seconds, what kind of computer takes "up to 15 minutes"?

    Hi Ed;

    There are many instances where installing an application might take significant amount of time; something to consider is that Snagit's system requirements are actually quite low (Single-core processor, 1GB of RAM) and while many of us enjoy very powerful machines, that might not always be the case. A single-core processor, 2GB of RAM, integrated GPU (rather than discrete) and a 5400 RPM HDD would most certainly install slower than a quad-core CPU with 8GB of RAM, an integrated GPU, and an SSD and while the low-spec machine is uncommon, it is not necessarily all that rare.

    My own PC is "okay". I have an i5 processor with 12Gigs RAM and a 5400 spin hard drive. I'd say it takes nearly 8 minutes or thereabouts to install on mine.

    Looks good!  For your next video you might consider playing around with pan and zoom so we can better see the focus of what you're talking about!  Also as a fellow Camtasia fan if you haven't already purchased it I'd really recommend getting the maintenance package because it'll give you access to the certification which I found really useful for learning the ins-and-outs and also getting some creative inspiration.

    Nice video though!
