Camtasia 2018 (just upgraded to resolve this issue) is not seeing an M4v file when I try to import.  What am I missing?

As far as I know M4v is an Apple format and unsupported by Camtasia. "Windows"

If you check the formats importable listed in Windows file explorer M4v is not listed. This may not be the case in Camtasia for MAC?

M4v files are also subject to copyright protection in some cases.That's why Apple created the format.

You could try using Handbrake or some other video conversion program to convert the files for import.

Or contact tech support. Or perhaps someone else knows something I'm unaware of in this case?

Yes, HandBrake is a very convenient converter. In addition, there are free m4v to mp4 converters like Freemake Video Converter and Convert.Files.
