Camtasia 2018 on Mac OS X - default AVI, not TREC. How?

I would greatly appreciate if someone could please tell me how to set the default encoding to AVI in Camtasia 2018 on a Mac OS X platform. I am recording my lectures and processing them automatically on a Linux box and TREC file format does not fit in my workflow. Camtasia 9 running on MS Windows provides an option to set AVI as a default format. I do not see any such functionality in Camtasia 2018. Needless to say, this is very annoying.

Sorry, but you cannot change the internal format, since that contains so much more than a standard video file. Sfter recording and editing you may produce a mp4 or avi file

Thank you, Erik. Well, you can set AVI as your default format in Camtasia 9 (at least under MS Windows). Why not in Camtasia 2018 (at least not under Mac OS X)? In Camtasia 9 on MS Windows, you simply navigate to Tools > Options and select "Record to: .avi" in General settings tab (see the images below).



 

I cannot see anything remotely related to this in the latest version of Camtasia 2018 on my Apple machine. :-(
