32-bit QuickTime Support

I have been working with Camtasia for several years. I have video opens and close animations that are keyable 32-bit Animation (Millions+) codec. This was supported in Camtasia 6, 7,and 8; but neglected in 9.

I made the mistake of buying the upgrade to Camtasia 9, and cannot use it, since TechSmith has dropped support for the most common graphics interchange file format in the animation world. Not only is it dissapointing that TechSmith dropped this, but there was no real warning that it was dropped before I bought it. I now want to return it and restore my old Camtasia 8 installation. I also want to warn all users that this oversight on the part of TechSmith and how it effects their customers.

I understand that Apple has dropped support for QuickTime, and TechSmith has decided to follow suit. However, don't go into your support forums and tell us where to find the latest (or last) version of QuickTime and endorse a pirate culture video ripping tool like Handbrake. You are both talking out of both sides of your mouth and ignoring 32-bit files.

H264 has never supported Alpha channels, officially. TechSmith is not supporting 32-bit AVI files, and assumes that MPEG files provide good enough resolution to use 32-bit. The anti-aliasing isn't up to standards. You have reduced Camtasia to glorified PowerPoint.
