Dropbox syncing in Camtasia 8

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
I use Dropbox for all my file saving. When I use Camtasia on the computers in my three different locations, Camtasia doesn't automatically recognise where the files I have saved are. Say I create a project at home and import some media to work on. then when I go to work and check that my dropbox files are synced ok, open the same Camtasia project, it doesn't find the files automatically. Only the device that I used when I saved the Camtasia project originally can see the files without prompting- for the others I have to specify where they are. Is there any way around this ?

export the project as a zip; store that zip on dropbox; import the zip to edit from a different location

always store a zipped project to avoid the lost file issue

I wish techsmith would give us the option of choosing the media library location. That would solve all of this export / import nonsense that is really slowing down our workflow between machines.
