It would be nice if Camtasia Studio offered an easy way to open Windows Explorer to browse items.

In another application I use, when one right-clicks a project file, the context menu offers an option labeled "Explore". And if you click it, Windows Explorer opens at the location where the item is found.

What I'd love to see is the same behavior in Camtasia. Right-click a camrec or other type of file in the Clip Bin to view the folder it came from.

This could be very helpful in Camtasia if you have been saving your camrec files to different locations.

Cheers... Rick :)

Hello there,
If you right click an Item and select " Update media" it will open the folder it came from.

Hmmm, looks like that will do the trick! Thanks Joe! I never would have guessed this would happen.

Funny observation though. I'm working through some material and when I selected that option, it did correctly open to the right location. The funny bit is the "cannot find" message that appears in the title bar of the new window even though everything is actually in order.

Maybe it's generic and the thought is that if one selected that option, it must always mean that the item cannot be found. LOL

  I never noticed that before, that is strange. This is unrelated but as I was playing around trying to understand the message I discovered a handy way to set up the import window.

You can click an Item, see/or play--a preview of it and all the properties before importing it into the clip bin. That's a windows file setting actually. It works with normal imports or update media.
Unfortunately a camerac file cannot play as a preview. 

This doesn't seem to effect Standard Windows file layout. Although when I opened Photoshop and Premiere Pro there import window looked the same. So I'm a little on the fence about using that feature but it sure beats importing  just to take a closer look.





I like that torn paper look you applied to your uploaded image. That's pretty cool, drop shadow and all.

Regards, Joe
