Camtasia project files (TSCPROJ) are single-platform and cross-platform compatible. However, not all media and effects work across platforms. Additionally, legacy callouts and captions are not cross-platform compatible.

 

When you export a project to another platform, a warning message appears if the project contains media that is not compatible across platforms.
