Camtasia remains my favorite screen recorder because of it’s flexibility and editing capabilities. Recently someone asked me to make a screen recording from their iPad. After updating my operating system and Camtasia software I was ready to try this out. Everything looked good-Camtasia saw the attached device. But when I made a recording it was a failure.

Don’t worry, even if you don’t need that audio source, you can always mix/edit/delete it because Camtasia puts it on a separate track, as seen here:

As always, I welcome your thoughts , comments, and feedback.
