Camtasia (Mac): Editing Camtasia, Snagit, and Jing videos in Camtasia for Mac

Problem

How to edit videos created from Snagit, Jing, or Camtasia (Windows) to Camtaisa (Mac)?

Solution

Jing

Jing SWF files cannot be edited in Camtasia (Mac). The SWF files created in Jing can only be opened in Camtasia (Windows).

Snagit

Snagit AVI videos (Snagit 10 and earlier) cannot be imported in Camtasia (Mac).

Snagit 11 and later and Snagit (Mac) 2 and later create MP4 video captures. Those MP4 files can be imported into a Camtasia (Mac) project.

Camtasia 8

Recordings (.trec) can be transferred to Camtasia (Mac). Project (.camproj) files cannot be transferred to Camtasia (Mac).

Camtasia 9 and Later

Recording and projects files can be shared on Camtasia (Mac) 3 and later. See this support article for more information.

See this article for working with Camtasia recording files in Camtasia (Mac).
