    I installed OBS. It simply records the display, but doesn't allow any annotation and several other features that Camtasia Studio, FlashBack and others provide. Its purpose is different, since it is a broadcasting software.

    Camtasia is for recording your screen, then bringing in that footage into an internal NLE for further editing, annotation, etc before eventually rendering out a final video. OBS on the other hand can record your screen but has no editing facility whatsoever. As such, it's not an alternative to Camtasia unless you only want to capture your screen.
