Camtasia (Windows): Version 8 Library Assets

Problem

I am no longer able to use library assets from Camtasia 8 in newer versions of Camtasia.

Solution

TechSmith is no longer able to distribute the additional assets which were available for Camtasia Studio 8.  New assets require Camtasia 2018, and can be found on our new service, TechSmith Assets for Camtasia.

If you are looking for the assets that were included in your Camtasia Studio 8 library, there are two ways to use those assets in Camtasia 2018.

Option 1: Export/Import Camtasia Studio 8 Library

One option is to export the library from Camtasia Studio 8 as a LIBZIP, and then import that into Camtasia 9 or later.

  1. Open Camtasia Studio 8.
  2. Click Library.
  3. Right-click in the library and choose Export library.
  4. Open Camtasia 9 or later.
  5. Click File > Library > Import Zipped Library.
  6. Browse to the LIBZIP file created in step 3.

Option 2: Export/Import Individual Project

The other option is to just export the individual project from Camtasia Studio 8, and then open that project in Camtasia 9 or later.

  1. Open the project in Camtasia Studio 8.
  2. Click File > Export project as zip.
  3. Open Camtasia 9 or later.
  4. Click File > Import Zipped Project.
