A Professor made a camtasia file on a PC and sent to me to edit and publish on my mac. He's sent me tscproj files and they don't seem to contain all the files (like a camproj would). What kind of file does he need to send me so that I can edit his recordings on my mac? We both have the newest versions of camtasia. How does he need to save the file so that he can share it with me for editing? See screenshot for error:

at least for sharing projects between windows PCs, the sender needs to first export the project as a zip; then he shares the zip file

the receiver then imports the zip file into Camtasia

the zip file ensures that all files stick together

I don't do Mac; but I'd expect the latest Camtasia Mac to be able to import a windows zip export [assuming Camtasia 9 on windows and Camtasia 3 on Mac]

maybe a user that does this can chime in?

if Camtasia works like Snagit in this respect. It more than likely saves in an incompatible format.
