I am new to Camtasia. I created an mp4 on my iPhone and emailed it to my Mac. Then created a project and imported the mp4. When I play it the video is heavily dimmed. Any help will be most appreciated.

If you play the mp4 back on your mac outside of Camtasia does it look OK?  If not, then the mp4 actually looks that way.  If it plays back and looks normal, then go back into Camtasia, and click on the mp4 clip on the timeline, then open the Properties panel on the right hand side of Camtasia. In the Visual Properties tab on that panel (the first panel), make sure the opacity is set to 100%.  Now the video should render at full opacity and the black background won't show through at all.
