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

Problem

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

Solution

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.

  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.
