Camtasia And Missing Computer Camera Screen & Functions?

Why did Camtasia decide to do away with the computer video camera functions that it used to have. If you want to do a self recording to send to a colleague you have to almost use another Movie Program and then import it into Camtasia. You might as well use that programs editing tools as far as I'm concerned. Love SnagIt, but this is a problem for me in Camtasia.y

I believe it was deleted as a separate function in CS9

to do a web cam capture, set Camtasia Recorder to use web cam, get in front of camera, do a capture,and when you put the resulting trec file on the timeline, you'll have a web cam clip, with audio [if mic was on], as well as whatever was captured from the screen, plus a system audio, if that was enabled too

delete all but the camera clip and you'll have what you would have gotten with record camera in CS8
