Here's one option. >  Export the project as zip file.

This will include a copy of all the files .You can even include the Library assets as part of the export.

She can then open the entire project from that zipped file and make changes. Save the changes and Export the project as a zip file again. Then you can open the new file on your end and continue editing from there.

Hello,
To successfully share your video project, you will need to Export your Project as a Zip File.
Here's how:


Then, your teammate will need to import that project into Camtasia.

Here is a guide on Project Collaboration that should help you out:

The best way of sending the document without errors would be to place your working file(s) in a unique folder. If necessary, zip the folder and then send it.

Did you place all of the working files in a unique folder? The only way you can tell is if you try to open the project using the new folder and if it works completely then and only then can you archive the folder and not just the single file.

You need to import the zipped project directly into Camtasia.

See Image.

Interesting. Didn't know that was an option as I've always kept my projects in separate and unique folders. Good to know for future reference.

What's nice about doing it that way is you can save any project. Edit, improve or update it in the future. Make a backup of the file if it's important enough to you.
 Plus you can delete the other files and clean up your computer a bit. Although, the files are large so I don't save many projects.

Ok, so for project collaboration, I export the project as Zip. The next person, imports the project as zip, makes changes, and exports as a zip again. Then I create a unique folder to put that edited exported zip, and open the zip or import it?

Import the zipped project.

Rinse and repeat as needed.
Never opening an older version,unless there's some reason to go back to an older version of the editing process.
