Editing existing MP4 doesn't save when I export

I would like to edit an existing MP4 file (cutting the final scene). I do this in Camtasia, save the project, and then "Export as Zip." When I open the zip folder and play the MP4, none of the edits made in Camtasia saved - it's still the exact same MP4 that I started with.

It would be necessary to re-render the clip to reflect the changes. Produce and Share - mp4 option.

I suspect you need to produce the file, not export it. Zip it later if you must.
