If you convert the video first you can edit in Camtasia.

The process happens pretty quickly. I recommend the free program  Freemake  Video Converter.

Freemake is pretty easy to use and that's why I recommend it.

I will add one precaution. When you’re installing the program there will be several options for additional software that you will probably want to decline installing. You just need to make sure you check the right box. The programs aren't nefarious in nature so if you accidentally install one you can uninstall it without issue.

Looks like Freemake comes with watermarks these days.I haven't used the program in a about a year and had to install it myself.Just to look over the right settings for you to use.

It's not even quite the same as I remember it.Option wise, I'm not going to recommend it anymore. At least the free version anyway, it won't let me create as high of a quality of a conversion as I would recommend using.

I'm looking around for another free alternative. I'll let you know if I find one.

 Some people around here might steer you towards Handbrake.
It only does MP4 and MKV conversions.

Camtasia can't import MKV.I can't speak for the re-editable quality of mkv I'm not  familiar with the codec. 

Mp4's are a poor choice for re-editing videos. They should be avoided whenever possible.
