Project File Cannot Be Opened


When opening a project in Camtasia an error says "The project file cannot be opened.  Make sure the selected file is a valid .tscproj file."


This can occur if the project file is in a corrupt state.

Option 1

  1. In Camtasia click Edit > Preferences > Program Tab.
  2. Click Open AutoSave Folder
  3. Look to see if there is an autosaved version of the project that can be opened.

Option 2

Submit a ticket to our support team to what we can do to recover the project.

Tip: Avoid Project Corruption

Storing active/in-progress projects and source files on the local hard drive and not in a cloud, network, external, or otherwise synced folder can help prevent project corruption.
