Hi anavaughan7 and thanks for posting;

You will not be able to use your Canon camera (nor any DSLR / Digital Video Camera) as a webcam for Camtasia to record as the Recorder only supports actual webcameras. I recommend you set the Canon camera up to record your content, then after you are done recording simply transfer the video file that the Canon camera created on its memory card, to the computer then import that file into your Camtasia project and edit as needed.
