what version of Camtasia?

I believe this can be caused by several factors, including using source media files located on network or cloud drives?

have you searched the tech support knowledge base?  I seem to recall previous threads where this was discussed

I had it happen to myself and in that instance the project [or was it a piece of media, can't remember for sure] had a file name that was too long; shortening the name fixed it

also, this thread was posted as an "idea"; perhaps re-post as a "problem"?

I am probably overstating the obvious, but does the file you are trying to open have a .tscproj or .camproj extension? Can you show a screenshot of the file explorer window  where the project file is stored?
