Camtasia (Mac): Optimal settings for exporting video that will be imported to another application

 

Camtasia 2.9 and later no longer utilizes QuickTime components to render and decode media.  As a result, it is not possible to change the compression type when exporting from Camtasia.  In most cases, we suggest choosing Share > Export to create a mp4 file instead.

To ensure your video will have the best performance in another video editor, we suggest exporting your video at the original resolution you recorded your video, at 30 fps framerate. To verify that you have your dimensions set to the correct setting, please see the following article here.

Once you dimensions are set correctly, export your project with the following steps:

 

Camtasia 3 and later

-Go to Share>Local File...

 

-From the drop down at the bottom of that window, choose Export to MP4 (.mp4), then Click Options.

 

-Set Frame rate to 30 fps and Set Dimensions to Current. Choose OK, then Export.

 

 

Camtasia 2.9-2.10.7 

-Go to Share>Advanced export.

 

-From the drop down at the bottom of that window, choose Export to MP4 (.mp4), then Click Options.

 

-Set Frame rate to 30 fps and Set Dimensions to Current. Choose OK, then Export.
