Camtasia (Mac): Exported Video Had Faded or Incorrect Color


When a project is exported from Camtasia (Mac) 2 or Camtasia (Mac) 3 as a MP4, the color is faded or incorrect.


This is a known issue that we hope to fix in a future release. As a workaround, export the video using these settings:

  1. In Camtasia (Mac) 3 select Share > Local File. In Camtasia (Mac) 2 select Share > Advanced Export.
  2. In the File format dropdown menu and select Export to QuickTime Movie (.mov).
  3. Click Options.
  4. In the Compression Type dropdown menu and select Apple ProRes 422.
  5. If you still need a MP4 file, download Handbrake to convert your MOV to MP4. Here is a video on how to use Handbrake.
