Camtasia should capture video from cameras attached to capture cards

We have a room with a camera connected to a Windows PC via an AverMedia capture card. Every other piece of software we've tried--GoToMeeting, Skype, etc.--has been able to communicate with the camera perfectly, but Camtasia won't.

Tech support says this configuration isn't supported--that only configurations where cameras are connected via USB are. But in an academic setting like mine, it's not at all uncommon to have cameras connected via a capture card. If our other apps recognize these cameras, surely Camtasia can be made to as well.
