I have Camtasia 2 and 3 installed on my MacBook Pro. Is there any advantage to keeping both, or can I delete Camtasia 2?

The new Camtasia 3 is very nice, and the switch from 2 to 3 was easy for me.

I recommend leaving Camtasia 2 in the past.

I had problems converting SOME videos from 2 to 3. I reserved my Cam 2 under another name and was able to open them in 3. Otherwise I would have had to send them to Tech Support to do this for me. So, I've kept Cam 2, and will until I've converted everything to 3. 

Also, Cam 2 videos are smaller than the converted version in 3. If you're short on storage, keeping Cam 2 and Cam 2 versions is a good idea, unless you need them in Cam 3.

As you may have seen in other posts, some people have discovered features missing from Camtasia 3 that they liked/needed in Camtasia 2.  I keep both on my MacBookPro in case that situation arises. Indeed, I keep a Windows version (running under Fusion) as well so I can use some features of that version that aren't available in the Mac version.

I upgraded to v3 and had problems with it slowing my Macbook Pro to a crawl and even forcing a hard boot. So I went back to v2 until this problem is fixed.  I'm glad I kept v2 on my computer. You may want to keep v2 until you determine v3 is bug free and works smoothly.
