You seem to be misunderstanding my point cbkr.team
can manually type in varied fps/settings. In the recorders settings. Camtasia
will record at that frame rate. This behavior dates back to Camtasia 7. I can't
speak for versions 6 and further backward?
If you place a 1 second........25 per second video/recording/media in Camtasia.
It’s converted to 30fps when placed on the timeline “automatically” when working on a 30fps project. In the long run, this is a very destructive process. It starts by Camtasia repeating frames to create 30fps.
In the image below, you’ll see a 25 fps project. I created it myself in Premiere Pro. It contains 25 images/frames of a clock. Sequentially 1-25. Camtasia has converted it to 30 fps. If you advance each frame manually. You would see its duplicated frames 1,6,11,16,and 21.
I Exported this project using a custom production at 25 fps from Camtasia.
I imported this Camtasia produced video into Premiere Pro.
What did Camtasia Render?
What should be a 25 frame video with the frames reflecting the numbers 1 through 25.
Frames 1,6,11,16 and 21 have been duplicated.
Frames 5,10,15,20, and 25 have been deleted.
SO......... Camtasia has effectively rendered 10 out of 25 frames incorrectly.
Unfortunately, Nothing has changed.

As to 25fps- Neither Mac nor Windows support 25FPS editing. Camtasia for Mac *will* let you record at 25fps, however once it reaches the Camtasia editor, it will be 30FPS again for editing, just like on Windows.
When encoding (sharing, producing) you can choose 25FPS then as well.

Projects created in Camtasia 2 for Mac are not compatible with Camtasia 2018 for Mac or Windows. Cross platform project compatibility was added in Camtasia 3 (Mac) and Camtasia 9 (Windows). Camtasia 2018 projects are cross platform.
Camtasia 2018 for Mac can open and convert Camtasia 2 for Mac projects. If you want to use a Camtasia 2 for Mac project on the Windows platform, you will need to use the Mac version of Camtasia 2018 to convert it. The keys for Camtasia 2018 are cross platform, so if you have a key for the windows version you also have a key for the Mac version. But there is not reason you could not just use the trial to convert projects.
Both Camtasia 2 for Mac and Camtasia 2018 have the ability to record at 25 fps. Neither has the ability to edit at 25 fps. Any 25 fps recordings you created with Camtasia 2 for Mac will work correctly in Camtasia 2018, but currently your only options are to edit in 30 fps or 60 fps.
Unfortunately, its the way things currently stand. If it changes one day , great. Until then.}:>(
My original intention was to post a link in the forum. That way anyone could download it.
Then, the thought hit me? A video demonstration. Should save everyone a lot of time and effort. So here it is in a nut shell........}:>)
If you click "vimeo" on the playback controls.You can watch it in full HD on Vimeo.
Here is an animation comparison I created. It demonstrates the negative impact.
The Premiere Pro Icon is an animation I created in PP at 25fps.
I replaced the PP icon with a Camtasia icon. Creating a second video with an identical animation.
I imported it into Camtasia and re-rendered it at 25fps.
Placed the 2 videos side by side in PP. At 25 fps the PP icon stutters along steadily. This is unavoidable as per the projects settings & speed of the animation. It’s a 1080p video. The Icons are 256 x 256 pixels.
The Camtasia icon’s erratic motion speaks for itself.
I found this post because I had the exact problem. I live in a "PAL" country, so my shoot my videos 25fps or 50fps. Unfortunately, I did not realize this issue before, because I was mainly using screen record in Camtasia.
So if Camtasia developers read this, please add an option to have 25fps or 50fps timeline.
Still, I have a question about audio when 25fps video is added to the 30fps timeline. I understand that video frames are duplicated, but what happens to the audio that is recorded in the same file as video? doe the length also get modified somehow?
