EMPLOYEE1Here are two resources that may help if you work with both Camtasia Studio and Adobe Premiere.

• Exporting Lossless Video from Camtasia Studio
• Selecting Proper Codecs for Import into Premiere Pro
• Creating Premiere Sequences that Maintain Optimum Text Legibility
• Nesting and Animating Sequences so that Text Stays Sharp and Easily Readable
• Using After Effects to Make Animation Better and Easier
If you have some good experiences, or helpful tips to share, please add them to this thread. Thanks.
We've just released Camtasia Studio 8, and we’ve added a ton of new features that make it a worthy competitor in video editing. We re-wrote our timeline, revamped our callouts and transitions, and did a bunch of stuff behind the scenes for better performance. It’s possible what you do in Adobe Premiere can now be done in Camtasia Studio!
Below is a video on all of the new stuff in Camtasia Studio 8.

hmm, it seems you removed the ability to export from premiere with the new techsmith 2 codec. I keep getting an error that you can only encode with TSMC2 through camtasia. I had a really good workflow editing with premiere, camtasia simply cannot edit as well, especially when editing 100s of hours of content.
Please allow us to encode to TSMC2 with Adobe Media Encoder!
I'm trying to import a Camtasia .avi into Adobe After Effects, but I'm getting an "unsupported file format" error.
I've tried installing the codec (tscc.exe), but same error.
How do I import a Camtasia .avi into After Effects?
*Also, just to clarify, this is an avi directly out of the recorder (so I'm saving my recording as an avi, not a .camrec in the options.)
This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
How to import Camtasia .avi into Adobe After Effects?.
Apparent lack of response to Adobe Premier questions is the primary reason I'm not buying Camtasia. Many of us love the screen editing and capture abilities of Camtasia... But today's marketers need to edit in speakers... And not from clugy webcams. If Camtasia took a cooperative perspective instead of a competitive perspective here and let people know how to make their new versions work with Premier and not just leave only old posts on the subject it would be great.
I have no problem at all using Camtasia videos in PPro. Of course I don't export as an avi file...I use mp4. AVI's are very large files since they are uncompressed and really don't seem to offer an advantage (for me) over mp4's. Mp4 is a great format and works very well in PPro.
I tried importing an .avi in PPro and the got error as well. It appears to be a PPro problem, not a Camtasia problem. I did a Google search and found a lot of information on this issue happening in PPro.
My workflow is pretty simple...compile out of Camtasia Studio as an mp4 file and import into PPro...it works fine.
I don't know what else Techsmith can provide that will make you feel like they are being "cooperative".
Have no problem with exporting video productions from camtasia 8 to premiere pro
I find techsmith has the best tech support out there (thats why I purchase every new version they come out with). If you have a problem you can't figure out just call them. I just did a couple of video productions using the new camtasia 8 and they worked great. see my youtube channel pf1950
