Hi there,

I cannot export from Camtasia 2 and convert to a .mp4. Getting frustrated and hope there is a simple solution. I am running MacOS Catalina 10.15.4. 

Thank you in advance! Would be so appreciative for any timely support. 

Kind regards,

Hi Sloan, 

Sorry you're having this situation. Other posters may be more familiar with Camtasia 2 - my experience has been TSC for Mac V.3 and up.

A few questions: 

1) You say that you're exporting from Camtasia 2 and then trying to convert, meaning a two-step process. Does Camtasia 2 allow you to export/share your project as an .mp4?
1a) If not, what file type are you saving/exporting your project to? I ask because you should have no issue using Handbrake, a free utility to convert your output to .mp4.

2) If question 1 doesn't pan out, would you be willing to:
A) Save a new (safety) copy of your project
B) Download a trial of Camtasia V.2020 - which is available for Mac/Windows.
C) Import the safety copy of your project into V.2020. If you're able to do have no issue exporting to .mp4 which I know the Mac version 3, 2018, 2019 and 2020 can all do, from firsthand experience. 

I wish you the best of luck.
