Export or share themes in Camtasia?

If this has already been requested or answered, my apologies as I was unable to find an answer via the forum search.

I have created a theme for my camtasia videos and would like to be able to export and or share it with the users of our computer in our learning lab.  Currently,  I have checked into the AppData and ProgramData folders on my windows 10 pc to see if there was a file I could possibly copy out and place into same directory on the learning lab pc, but was not able to locate such a file. 

If this is not possible then how can I make it available to all users who log in to the learning lab pc after recreating the theme in camtasia on that pc but under my user account?

Thanks in Advance

Thank you so much for this!  Now I just need to figure out the best way to make this available to every user who logs into that computer and opens Camtasia.

Hi emiller,

At this moment, there's not a way in Camtasia to share your themes. I'm very interested in the workflow you're asking about, sharing the themes in your learning lab; would you care to elaborate on that? We're always looking for ways to improve theming, and Camtasia in general, and hearing how you are hoping to use it helps guide us on that mission.

Thanks for the feedback!

Kelly, Not sure if you ever had an answer to your question. We are also looking to share themes across multiple computers for branding purposes. We have multiple people making videos so having common color / font themes distributed efficiently is important to us. Perhaps I'm missing something, but is there some other way to apply a "theme" to multiple computers in an organization?

Hi rchawla,

Thanks so much for sharing your insights! At the moment, there is not currently a way to apply a theme to multiple computers. If you can tell me a bit more about what exactly you're trying to do, I'd love to share some of those insights with the team! What do your productions look like on the timeline (i.e. do you have intros, titles, etc)? What are the most important parts of your videos that could take advantage of shared themes?

Cheers!

Kelly

Hi Kelly. I'd like to be able to create a color scheme (brand colors for instance) and make that exportable / importable to other machines in our organization. We can do this with Intros and Outros we develop in Libraries, but want the same efficiency for color / font themes, and even images such as logos. Am I missing something?

Hi rchawla, that is great information, thank you! We're actually interested in hearing more about your specific example, so keep your eye open for an email asking to see if you'd be willing to talk to us a bit more!

Cheers,

Kelly
