How can I film myself full screen? Hi. I have Camtasia 2. When I export the project I see myself in a small part of the screen even though in the editor it looks like a full screen. Thanks

Could you post a screenshot of what everything looks like on your canvas and timeline for us to see? What you get when you export should definitely be what you see inside the Editor...

OK I think I see what's going on here- I think your canvas is "zoomed in" and you can't see that your video is actually not filling up the whole thing. 
In the bottom right, where it says "100%", instead choose something smaller (75?) so you can see the edges of the canvas around your video.

Then we should get your canvas set up to be the same size as your content.
1. select the video, and look at the properties on the right (might have to open that with the gear looking button)
2. change "scale" to 100%
3. Now go back to that canvas zoom drop down, and this time choose "Adjust Canvas...":

4. In the canvas adjustment dialog, choose "Fit to visible" and apply that.

You might want to zoom out again so you can see what's going on. You can zoom out with that dropdown, or you can just scroll up/down with your trackpad/mouse.

Let us know if this helps!

It worked! Thank you so much.
Could you please recommend me an outer camera that is connected to the mac and works well with camtasia? The one I use now is the built in camera.
Thanks again.
