I am using Camptasia 3 on an iMac. Does Camptasia have features that would allow me to use it as a chromakey tool?

Yes, if you mean that you like to remove the chromakey-colour, to let a background come through.

Elearning, it is in the Visual Effects section, "Remove a Color." Just drag the effect on to the video you are trying to key out.

Further to Brett's response, once you've added the 'Remove a Color' effect, go to the Properties panel and select the colour you wish to remove. The colour picker is useful for this as you can select the colour on the image. You can also adjust the Tolerance etc.

I hope this helps,

This video was done in Camtasia for Mac 2.8.1. There are 6 video layers of which two use chromakey and the "remove a color" effect extensively.

scroll down to the last video on the page, "Technical Teaser Video"
