Since Camtasia 9's release, Camtasia has limited cross platform capabilities.
Any Windows project created in Camtasia 9,2018  and 2019 should open in 2019 for Mac.

100% of the features are not cross platform compatible. So it's less than ideal.

Hi Keith, if your recording files are .trec and you have access to these files outside of Camtasia, you can import them into Mac as pieces of media. These will be the raw unedited recording files. To be able to open a Windows project with all media and timeline editing you would have needed to have exported the project from Windows first. 
Best,
