The project in Camtasia (Mac) does not open and prompts this message: Error: Cannot open project.
Reason 1: File Not Saved as a Standalone Project
Always keep media and project files on a local hard drive and save your projects as a standalone project.
If the project is not saved as a standalone project, move the media file to its original location.
Reason 2: File and/or Folder Contain Symbols
Avoid symbols in file and folder names (@, #, %, etc.). File name should contain lowercase, uppercase, and/or numbers for file to open.
Reason 3: Location and Name of File
If the project cannot be opened after importing a media file, try moving or renaming the file.
Reason 4: Copy of File Does Not Work
Restore file from a backup copy of the project. If all else fails, follow the instructions below:
- Control-click the .cmproj file.
- Select Show Package Contents.
- Control-click project.tscproj and/or ~project.tscproj.
- Add .BAK extension at the end of the file name.
- Return to the .cmproj file and open it.
If none of these workarounds resolve the problem, contact support for assistance.
