The following formats are able to be imported into Camtasia for editing:
- MP4 (AVC/h.264 codecs required; 30 frames per second or less)
- MTS and M2TS files. (Version 8.4 and later) You will need the AC-3 Filter if running Windows 7 or Winodws 8.0. See here for more information.
- MOV H.264 and PNG MOV codecs are supported *See here for more information*
For unsupported file formats, you can record the playback in a desktop media player or web browser window with Camtasia Recorder to create a .TREC file and import that into your project. You can also convert many video formats to MP4. Below is a link to download Handbrake and a video showing the steps necessary to make an MP4 that will work successfully in Camtasia Studio.
