Camtasia for Mac has color adjustment. You will find it under Video FX.

Just add the Color Adjustment Effect to a video, and you will get the options to adjust brightness, contrast and saturation.

The default values were chosen to make it obvious that something happens.  You will want to set the saturation to 0 if you do not want to modify the colors.

Hey Stephen
I understand the theory behind changing the values. But the default values should be Zero. Most videos need little to no adjustment. Throwing the settings off the charts is creating more work for the user. And apparently, confusion as well.
I've used a lot of video editing software over the years. I've never used an editor that intentionally screws up the settings of a video when applying a filter. If you're reaching for the filter you probably already know what it's used for. If Camtasia 8 behaved this way I would not be happy about it.
Just my 2 cents on the issue.
Regards, Joe

Hi there!

We want to thank you for your patience while we worked to make adjusting your colors possible.  We are pleased to announce that we have just released our newest, most powerful version of Camtasia yet. This Camtasia release has a new visual effect for Color Adjustment.

Unfortunately, Camtasia Windows still doesn't share all of the Video Effects that Camtasia Mac has, but we are striving to bring them more in line with each other. Hopefully you will agree if you checkout Camtasia 9 for Windows and Camtasia 3 for Mac.

You can buy Camtasia here or download the trial here.

Please feel free to post your feedback and feature requests here in our Community forums and remember, all technical support-related inquiries should be directed to our dedicated Technical Support team at https://support.techsmith.com/


Thanks again!
