What formats can be imported into Camtasia on Mac and added to the timeline?
- TREC (Camtasia Recording files)
- MOV (QuickTime movie), DV, MPEG-1
- AAC (m4a)
- TIFF and single-page PDF (multi-page PDF will not work properly)
- Camtasia will also import caption files in SRT or SAMI formats.
For unsupported file formats, you can record the playback in a desktop player or web browser window with Camtasia Recorder. You can also convert many video formats to allow importing. We recommend conversions with Handbrake, VLC, or Quicktime Pro to a format that Camtasia for Mac will read. We recommend MP4(H264/AVC) or MOV formats for importing video files. Audio files can be converted with iTunes or free sound editors such as Audacity if you need to convert the audio to a supported format.
You can display file information using MediaInfo if you're not sure if the file is a supported format.
