Camtasia (Mac): How to Avoid Blurry Videos

Problem

Videos exported from Camtasia (Mac) are blurry.

Solution

Please view our tutorial on Getting Crisp, Clear Screen Videoin Camtasa.

Set the Canvas Size to Match the Video for All New Projects

Videos that are imported into Camtasia (Mac) 3 by default, are set to the canvas at the 1080p resolution (1920x1080). This means that if your video is not exactly 1920x1080, it will be scaled to have 1080 height and the width of the video will be scaled proportional to the videos original aspect ratio.

To change default option, select Camtasia 3 (in the top left), then from that dropdown select Preferences. Select the Canvas option (in top right).

Set Canvas Dimensions (for both Full Screen Recording and Region Recording) to Original Recording Dimensions.
