Camtasia Assets Library quality question

I noticed that with my Wirecast 12 upgrade they have added a new Assets library function. Checking it out I find that it is exactly the same Assets Library used by Camtasia Studio, so obviously it is an external service shared. So now I have two paid subscriptions to the same library :). The only different I see with them is that with the Wirecast service you can choose the quality of the video you download, up to 4k where Camtasias version does not give you any choice. Can this be rectified?

I read somewhere TechSmith is going to improve the search engine for the TechSmith site. When that actually happens is anybody's guess. Its a culmination of assets from more than one source, so it probably varys from Wirecast 12 with a deeper dive.

I don't use the paid service but if you type in 4K you'll get 4K videos to comb through. I don't know if you can download lower quality videos of the same footage displayed or not? Being I don't subscribe the service, It won't let me do much. I suspect the option doesn't exist for you either. Or you would have seen it somewhere by now.

For now, it looks like you have to search 4K and a specific topic.If you want 4K. When I had a subscription to Videoblocks which is a branch of Storyblocks. As you looked at videos you could save them to a library or favorites or something like that. You didn't have to download them. The ones you liked were saved for future reference.So all that asset surfing wasn't wasted time.I haven't been a member in a very long time.So I don't remember how I saved a record.
And, all resolutions available for download.Were on the same download page, just chose your desired quality and download.  

TechSmith said they will have some sort of favorites menu of something to that effect.
